QUESTIONNAIRE FOR CARE OF W.D


Questionnaire for care,

Foster/Adoption Ownership of WOLFDOGS


This is part of our the tiered system of qualification and ownership, this is not a one application per say.  Phone call inquiries do not qualify a person for ownership here is the process, give or take.

 

 1.   When someone has met our phone conversations interview with success, we wait again for the potential adoptive owner to ask to move forward.


2. When they are ready via them asking how to precede, we ask them to move to the deposit/fee stage when they are committed, there is no paperwork sent, it is all done online. It is not an application but a process, they are asked then to move to the questionnaire online, this is not a application form. 


  Upon completed questionnaire, again not a application, we review again if the candidate is ready for ownership., if not....they cannot move to the deposit/fee transaction, which is the 3rd phase.

 3.  When both parties have come to a agreement/understanding on ownership and policies/qualifications/interview and the questionnaire signed, arrangements for deposit/fee's are made to be received.


 4.  Arrangements for Care contract to be signed and animal is to be released to owner in person, or transported and remaining funds paid in full.



We have a 4 tiered application process that is finalized in person.  Again there is not just one application, it is a process of checks and balances and several Electronic Signatures.





ARIZONA HYBRID ASSOCIATION WOLF-DOG OWNERSHIP PRE SCREEN QUESTIONNAIRE · 



      THE PURPOSE OF THIS QUESTIONNAIRE IS TO SEE HOW MUCH YOU ALREADY KNOW ABOUT WOLVES AND WOLF-DOGS.


THIS IS NOT A TEST AND WILL NOT PERMANENTLY BARR YOU FROM BECOMING AN OWNER OF WOLF-DOGS. THIS IS MEANT TO GAUGE YOUR CURRENT KNOWLEDGE AND DEPENDING ON THE RESULT OF THE SCREEN, WILL DETERMINE IF YOU WILL NEED TO ATTEND A CLASS ON WOLVES AND WOLF DOGS BEFORE WE CONSIDER YOU AS AN OWNER OF ONE OF OUR (ADOPTIVE/FOSTERED ADULT ANIMALS).


WE  DO THIS FOR THE SAFETY AND WELL BEING OF THE GENERAL PUBLIC, AND YOU AS AN OWNER,  AND THE ANIMALS THEMSELVES.


OWNING A WOLF-DOG CAN BE A LIFELONG JOY, IF YOU KNOW HOW TO LIVE WITH ONE OF THESE MAGNIFICENT BEINGS.
