ADOPTION DISCLAIMER

Neither Basenji Rescue & Transport, Inc. ("BRAT"), nor its volunteers, coordinators, representatives, Internet Service Provider and its officers, employees, contractors and representatives; and any other person, firm or corporation involved with the efforts or business of this corporation, shall be held liable or responsible for any claims or causes of action incurred as a result of the provision or restriction of information, services, contacts, adoptions, fostering, veterinary care or by the actions of any and all dogs transferred or referenced herein.

Moreover, there is absolutely no guarantee made or implied that any person requesting to adopt a dog being fostered through BRAT, or posted on BRAT's website, will be allowed to adopt a BRAT dog. Rather, all adoption applications are subject to acceptance based on a review process that may require collecting information from references and visiting the applicant's home. All decisions on placing dogs in adoptive and foster homes are based solely on the judgment of the volunteers and coordinators of BRAT and adoption applications submitted through this form are often denied for various reasons. BRAT reserves the right to make all decisions regarding placement or final disposition of any rescued dog in its care whether in, or being placed in, a foster or adoptive home or other facility. In addition, many of the dogs posted on BRAT's website are under the control of other shelters or rescue groups, and BRAT has no control over how these dogs are placed.

By clicking the "Send Information" button on the next page, you attest that you have read the above disclaimer and agree to the terms therein. In addition, pursuant to the requirements of various state statutes, you are also certifying that you have never been convicted of animal cruelty, neglect, or abandonment. If you do not agree to the disclaimer or cannot make the required certification, please return to our home page to quit this process.

Answer the form as completely as you can and remember that your name and email address are required. Your responses will only be used in rescue-related activities but may be posted to a private website and may be read by a network of BRAT volunteers and coordinators. Your information may also be transmitted via email to the same. Please note that adoption applications will only be accepted from persons 18 years old or older.
