Rescue Information Form

Thank you for your interest in adopting a Tibetan Terrier through Rescue.

At this time, fortunately for the breed, there are more people interested in adopting a Tibetan Terrier than there are Tibetan Terriers to be placed. We try very hard to match the "right" dog with the "right" owner. To facilitate this, it would be helpful to us if you would answer the following questions below.  There are no "right" and "wrong" answers; the questions are merely a guide to help determine your priorities and to help us select the best new owners for a rescue dog\'s new home based on the Rescue Committee\'s knowledge of the rescue dogs background from either the previous owners or those who have provided foster care.

Fill in the blanks below, and when you hit the "Submit" button at the bottom of the page, your data will be presented to you in a format suitable for printing, so you can print a copy for your own records. In addition, the form will be automatically delivered to the Rescue committee for their consideration.

Necessary Business:

By pressing the "Submit" button below, I declare that the above is true to the best of my knowledge and ability. I understand that the completion of this form does not guarantee my receipt of a Tibetan Terrier. I understand that I will not be contacted unless there is a dog available in my area which the TTCA Rescue believes may be suitable for me.

When you press the Submit button above, you will be presented with a copy of your input data in a form suitable for printing, so you can print a hard copy for your records. In addition, a copy will be sent to the Rescue committee for their consideration.

Once we receive your information, we will keep your name/answers on file in the event that a Tibetan Terrier becomes available that we believe would fit in well with your situation. If such a dog is or becomes available, we will contact you for additional information as well as to further discuss the adoption process/fees etc. Of course, if you have any further questions at this or any time, please feel free to contact us at this email address.

Again, thank you for your interest in Tibetan Terrier Rescue!
