PLEASE READ CAREFULLY:
**There is NO guarantee made, express or implied, that any person requesting to adopt a dog through NASRN, or a dog posted on NASRN's Website, will automatically be approved.
All adoptions are subject to acceptance based on a review process that requires collecting information from references and visiting the applicant's home. Decisions on placing dogs in adoptive and foster homes are based solely on the judgment of NASRN's volunteers and coordinators, and adoption applications may be denied for various reasons.
NASRN reserves the right to refuse to adopt to anyone without disclosing the reasons, and to make all decisions regarding placement or final disposition of any rescued dog in its care whether in, or being placed in, a foster or adoptive home or other facility. In addition, some dogs posted on or through NASRN's Website are under the control of other shelters or rescue groups, and NASRN has no control over how these dogs are placed.
