So, I volunteer for this rescue. The girl who runs it does pretty well considering she's in school and is maybe 25. She's manages a LOT on her own. But, for SOME reason(s) she is getting a lot of 'returns'. I figured if anyone can help work out some kinks/give some feedback, Chaz could. I'm thinking maybe making the application a bit stricter/more specific? This is the current application. http://form.jotform.us/form/23288719751161 C&P'd Let Love In Animal Rescue Adoption Agreement Full Name* First Name Last Name Address* Street Address Street Address Line 2 City State / Province Postal / Zip Code Country Home Phone Number* - Area Code Phone Number Cell Phone Number - Area Code Phone Number E-mail How did you hear about Let Love In Animal Rescue?* Why do you want to adopt a dog?* Do you have an age/sex preference?

She already has a trial week, which is supposed to prevent so many 'returns'. I'm worried she's just being too nice and not being realistic with people. (The foster I currently have was adopted out with her brother. The woman now is going to school and isn't sure when she'll be back. I also know of another family that adopted two littermates and almost adopted a third. They returned their two because 'the landlord changed his mind'.) Anyway, on with the ideas/advice. I'm not sure if she'll listen to me, but it's worth a shot!
