How do I adopt?
Once you have fallen in love with your new best friend and you have decided to adopt, you will be required to complete an application form/adoption contract. Your ID book or drivers license will be required and property inspections apply.
The adoption fee will include sterilization of your pet, all de-worming and vaccinations will be up to date, and a micro-chip will be inserted under the skin. Should you adopt an animal that is still too young to be sterilized, a sterilization voucher will be issued to you so that you can bring your pet back for sterilization as soon as it is old enough. Cats are also tested for Feline HIV and Leukemia before they are re-homed.
This means that the value of all the treatment your new pet will receive, by far exceeds the adoption fee, and you will be a hero for giving a home to a rescue animal!
Please note – Sterilization of your Wet Nose pet is compulsory, due to the huge numbers of unwanted and homeless animals in South Africa.
Horses, donkeys and other farm animals – The adoption fee will be determined by the circumstances under which the animal was rescued. We usually just try to recover some of the costs of the rescue.
If I adopt a dog, will it accept my other animals?
The best way to ensure that your new dog will get along with your other dogs is to bring your dogs with you to Wet Nose when you come to choose a friend for them. Once you have a few new dogs in mind, we will help you to socialize your dogs with the new dogs, one at a time. That way, you can let your dogs decide which one of your choices they want to be friends with. We will also help you establish which dogs are the most dominant etc. and make recommendations as to what kind of personality to look for in your new dog. This usually ensures that there will be harmony at home and that your new dog will fit into the family just fine.
