ISSDC Rescue/Rehome Adoption Application

Thank you for your interest in adopting a Shiloh Shepherd through the ISSDC Shiloh Shepherd Rehome/Rescue initiative. In order to be considered as an adopter you must:

  • be 21 years of age or older;
  • have identification showing your present address;
  • have the knowledge and consent of your landlord, or alternatively, your family;
  • be able and willing to spend the time and money necessary to provide training, medical treatment and proper care for a pet.

This form is an Adoption Application -- not an agreement to adopt a dog. We will use your answers as a starting point to work with you to determine whether or not a Shiloh Shepherd is really the dog you are looking for. If so, your completed application will provide the information we need to help you select a pet who will fit in well with your family, lifestyle and expectations.

The completion of this application is the first step toward approval as an ISSDC Shiloh Shepherd adopter. In addition, you should:

  • Notify all references whom you list on this application, including veterinary clinics and private individuals giving them your permission to speak with an ISSDC representative when contacted
  • Expect to be contacted by an ISSDC volunteer with additional questions that will help us in processing your application.
  • Cooperate in scheduling a home visit, (with all members of your family present).

The ISSDC reserves the right to refuse to adopt to anyone.

Some Shilohs come from great homes, are well adjusted, but have to be given up due to extenuating circumstances of their owners. Some Shilohs may come from abusive or neglective homes and will require diligent work on behalf of the adoptor to re-train the dog as a reliable companion.
