Tucson’s Dog Adoption Code Program is a fun and free dog adoption program that encourages people to adopt dogs and help out local shelters.
Anyone can apply to participate in the program.
If you’re interested in adopting a dog, you’ll need to provide a photo ID that is verified through a vet, and you must be at least 18 years old.
You can also use the program to take a dog to a shelter or adoption agency, if you’re looking to adopt a dog from a rescue or rescue dog adoption group.
Here’s how to get started:1.
Fill out the form below.2.
Select a location, select the type of dog, and the date and time you want to adopt the dog.3.
You’ll get an email with the dog’s adoption details and a QR code that you can scan and print.
The QR code is unique to you and will help the Dog Adopt Me app locate you when you’re searching for the right dog.4.
Use the QR code to search for the dog, select your favorite rescue or dog adoption organization, and submit the information below.5.
The Dog Adopter Program will contact you once you’ve adopted a dog and will provide you with a receipt.6.
The adoption fee will be deducted from your credit card in the form of a $20 adoption fee.7.
The dog will be adopted to you, at no cost, in the following order: (a) the adoption date, (b) the date the dog is returned to you for a new home, (c) the day the dog will meet its new home owner, and (d) the days when the dog goes on the waiting list.8.
You must adopt the same dog multiple times, unless you have a pet adoption program in your area.9.
The program requires that you pay $20 per adoption fee, but it does not apply to pets.
If your pet is not on the dog adoption list, the adoption fee may not apply.10.
Dogs are available for adoption from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m., Monday through Friday, and from 7 p.p. to 8 a.p., Monday thru Friday, except holidays and legal holidays.11.
Dogs must be up-to-date on their vaccinations, spay/neuter, and microchip requirements.
You may also want to visit the Dog Breeders Club for more information.12.
The cost of adopting a puppy or adult dog depends on the breed of the dog and the type.
For example, a Boston terrier costs $1,800, while a Staffordshire bull terrier will cost $1 to $2,200.
Dogs in a puppy-to or adult-size category may not be charged adoption fees, but may be given discounted adoption fees.13.
If the dog needs to be adopted for medical care, the program may not provide an adoption fee for a dog who is not medically stable.14.
If there is a pet food shortage, you may be eligible to purchase pet food through PetSmart.15.
The dogs must be in good health, and have their spay and neuter procedures.
Dogs with serious health issues can be spayed or neutered, but there is no fee to do so.16.
The Pet Adoption Program accepts all dogs that have not been surrendered by the shelter or rescue group.
Dogs that have been surrendered should be placed in the custody of a shelter.17.
If an adoption is in the mail, the dog may be returned to the shelter for adoption.
If not, the shelter will have to pay the adoption fees if the dog can’t be returned.18.
The pet must be returned in the same condition it was when it was adopted.19.
The shelter will notify you when the dogs are available, and if they are still available, they will provide information about the dogs availability.20.
If a shelter is not in the Tucson area, they can be contacted by calling 602-828-6100.
You will receive a phone call in your mailbox that indicates the dog was accepted for adoption and the adoption process is complete.
