Home checks are

applicant's home situation. Home checks help insure a smooth transition

All members living in the home of the potential adopter
must meet the volunteer and the person or persons
primarily responsible for the care of the dog must be
present during the entire home visit. A form will
be provided to guide you when conducting a home visit.
