    May we visit your home before and after you adopt this dog?

    I/we agree that if we adopt a dog through Big Dog Haven, we will provide professional vet care, a nutritious diet, and a loving home. We also agree that we will return the dog to Big Dog Haven Rescue if we can no longer keep the dog. No member of our household has ever been convicted of cruelty to animals. Must be 24 years or older to apply.
