Looking for a simple, streamlined adoption application that aligns with open, conversational adoptions processes. If you've got something, please share!!!

    Alisa, I like your application! Like you, we try to keep the application simple, friendly and no more than two pages with lots of white space to make it seem less daunting. Here is what we use.

    We recently changed our adoption contract to "Maui" style, after Maui Humane Society's contract. It was mentioned in a webinar. Attaching our version of their contract.

      HI RJ:

      This is great. The "one page" factor is key. As I mentioned in a comment below, we are collecting adoption application examples to generate templates for shelters who are interested. Would you be okay if we used this application for that?

    This is what we use and it gets conversations started.

      HI Alisa:

      This is fantastic! Thank you so much for posting. Do you mind if I use this as the basis for a "generic" application template to distribute to shelters who are interested?

        That is fine. Anything to help the conversation take off to get animals adopted:)
