WESTIE RESCUE MICHIGAN SURRENDER PAPERWORK

If you would like to surrender your Westie, please contact Julie   julierisch@att.net  269-779-7348 to discuss. She will conduct a short interview and discuss options. The LEGAL owner(s) of the dog must sign the paperwork. If the legal owner cannot, the signer must have Power of Attorney for the owner or estate.

Usually, once we have this conversation and tentively agree to take the dog, we will send you the paperwork or direct you to this site to print the paperwork and, at the same time, we will begin to look for an available foster home. Once we find an opening, we will contact you to arrange the surrender. You will be asked to deliver the dog to the foster home at an agreed upon time.

LIMITATIONS STATEMENT
 This document explains what we can and cannot do for your dog. Please read it carefully and fully understand its implications. Once surrendered, the dog will not be returned. This document must be signed by all owners and come to us WITH the dog at the time of surrender. We will do our best to place your dog in a new home. However there are conditions which may cause us to put your dog to sleep. We will not place a dog who we consider dangerous and we will not return that dog to you since that would be the equivalent of placement and leave us potentially liable. If the dog is ill and has poor life quality, we will put that dog to sleep. Please print and sign this document to indicate that you have read it and understand it.
