All potential adopters will be required to submit a completed application to the Director or regional delegate. Once the application has been reviewed and found to be satisfactory, a home check will be scheduled. Applicants will be notified whether they have been approved by the Director or delegate who will maintain records on each applicant.
The adoption fee for a rescued Borzoi is $400 for a Borzoi under seven years of age. For a Borzoi seven years of age or older is $200. In special circumstances, the adoption fee may be waived. Payments are acceptable.
When a rescued Borzoi is ready for adoption, the regional delegate or Director, equipped with the advice of the foster home will decide on the appropriate placement of the Borzoi.
When possible, an in home visit with the Borzoi to be adopted will be made before the dog is permanently placed with the prospective new owner to ensure proper placement.
If the person or family adopting the Borzoi is a renter, a letter from the landlord stating the Borzoi is permissible in the rental for the length of the owner's stay in their residence is required.
To the greatest extent possible, the Director, appointed delegate or volunteer will maintain contact with the homes of all Borzoi placed. Efforts will be made to ensure all rescued Borzoi remain is good homes.
In the event provisions of the adoption agreement are violated by the adoptive home, the regional delegate , rescue group or NBRF Director will take all steps possible to retrieve the Borzoi from the adoptive home. Provisions have been made in the Adoption Agreement a new home/owner must sign and agree to before they can adopt a rescued Borzoi for this to happen.
All Borzoi will be altered before being placed into any permanent home.
