Hi my name is Tessa!!!
 

I am a long legged goofball who likes zooming around the yard and practicing my deer imitation skills. I am at like professional deer at this point. Thinking about going for Olympic trials next. I like playing in my water bowl and live for supper time! I love to be as close to my humans as possible and am up for whatever they are doing. Going to the kitchen? I’ll come with you! Taking out the trash? I’ll help! Walking around trying to remember what you came in here looking for in the first place? No problem! I’ll walk with you until you remember. I am crate trained but don’t like to be there if everyone else is out. If I can see you, I’m going to tell you to let me out so I can sit by you, or on you or maybe beside you but still touching you. I love to play and take walks. I am learning it is not ok to drag my human down the block. I guess it isn’t fun for them or something. Weird I know. I am learning to what a cat is. Until three days ago I didn’t know. I now know to give the cat extra room and that it doesn’t enjoy playing with dog toys or my style of play. I love playing with my foster family’s dogs. I am learning that my excitement is not always matched and that should get out all my energy on walks and then playtime is fun for everyone. I would really love to be in my forever home. Won’t you adopt me? Forgot to mention, I am only 8 months old.

Adoption process

Once your application is received, the application process begins.  We will review your application, check your references, check with your vet (if there are other animals in the household), speak to a landlord (if you rent), and arrange for a home visit. 

Submitting an application does not guarantee a specific dog or cat.  We strive to match the personality and needs of our foster dogs and cats to a family who will best fulfill those needs.  If a family is not approved for a particular pet, it does not mean they will not be a good pet owner, it just means that their needs and the needs of the particular pet don’t match. We do not adopt on a “first come, first serve” basis. 

Please note that we do not do same day adoptions. If you are applying for a popular animal (such as puppies, small dogs, or special breeds), it can take several days for our volunteers to reach a decision that is best for the animal. We understand that it's difficult to wait, but please don't email us multiple times a day to check on the status of your application. We are a very small group and the same people that are reviewing your application are also replying to hundreds of emails and facebook messages. We are all volunteers and have full time jobs outside of KGARL, so any time spent replying to emails/messages is time we are not reviewing your application. 

Once your application is pre-approved (meaning, we don't see any red flags based on our preliminary review of your application), the applicant may be invited to meet their potential family member at a location convenient to the foster family (usually at the King George Petco).  Adoptions will NOT take place at the meet & greet, this is just a chance for us to get to know you and for you to spend time with our animals. After the meet and greet, we will ask that you spend some time thinking over your decision and we will do the same.

After the application review process is complete (meet & greet with animal, home visit, reference/vet checks, background check, etc.), if all is acceptable to both adopter and KGARL and we all agree to move forward, we will schedule a day/time to finalize the adoption. The adopter will be asked to sign the final paperwork and we will collect the adoption fee (cash, check, or paypal are all acceptable).  At this time, you can either pick up your pet, or schedule a time to do so. Adopters will be required to schedule an appointment with their veterinarian of choice within 10 days of taking your new pet home.

  • Lifetime of free advice from KGARL!
