Thank you for Inquiring about a Rompin Paws Rescue Puppy or DOG! 
To begin the adoption process, we require the submission of an online application. Applications are reviewed as they come in daily. Leanna, Dawne, or I will call to chat and follow up on the application, and, if you are pre-approved, I will have the foster call you to answer questions and ask any she deems pertinent, then if it seems like a good fit, we will set up a meet and greet with the dog you applied for and her foster.  
IF you want the application to submit-do not leave any questions or the contact portion blank.
the system set up default is to not submit if there are any blanks. if a question does not apply, write in-NA.
do not leave the contact portion blank or it will not submit and we will not know you have applied to adopt.
We highly recommend this short blog post by a fellow rescuer explaining what adopting a rescue dog means to her. 
Upon pre-approval, you will also receive a feeding and care guide on canine nutrition.  All Rompin Paws rescue dogs are being fed a Human Grade and Raw dog food diet (not dry kibble) and her health has greatly improved and will continue to do so.  We want our adopters to keep their new rescue dogs on this highly nutritious diet for life, for her health, vitality, and longevity.
Here is a link to one of the foods we feed the pups that you can check out while we process your application-            www.thehonestkitchen.com
Here is another-  https://www.https://ocrawdog.com/
Rompin Paws Rescue only feeds the dogs species-appropriate foods and educates our adopters in proper canine nutrition. 
You can learn more about canine feeding and care on our website  http://rompinpawsrescue.rescuegroups.org/ 
To fill out an application to adopt Please use this link. Please use a computer to complete as a cell phone will drop the application   http://rompinpawsrescue.rescuegroups.org /forms/ 
The site will ask you to create a password and will send you an email. For ease of use, just use the password they create for you and save that password.  
This will ensure you have access and can fill out the application.
Thank you,
I look forward to receiving the application
Who We Are
Rompin Paws Rescue is a No-Kill companion animal rescue dedicated to helping pets in need and helpING end the suffering caused by humans through overbreeding, abandonment, and cruelty. Our goal is to save one animal at a time and give it the best care possible through proper vetting, spay/neuter, proper feeding and nutrition, training, love, and compassion. Every animal is special. Our volunteers and fosters receive training in basic care, nutrition, training, and medical emergencies so they have the tools they need to help an animal become adoptable and eventually find its forever family. Our adopters are also given valuable information and support so they know they can count on us if the need should arise. I have seen the number of animals killed in U.S shelters drop over 44 years from 20 million adoptable pets per year to 6 million per year. We still have far to go and Rompin Paws Rescue is another step on that road to a NO-KILL Nation.
Dog Adoption Guidelines
Adopting a Dog requires a lot of work and is a commitment!
Healthy dogs: As a rescue saving dogs from starvation, Neglect and Emaciation, RPR focus's on feeding each rescued animal the healthiest dog food made of Human Grade ingredients to help them recover from their stress and starvation. We share this with our adopters and encourage them to keep their new pets on the same foods for optimal health and long life. 
Rescued Dogs need an  Emotional Support Human .
"Before you apply to adopt, ask yourself if you can be there for this dog? When she is old and cranky? When she is scared and barks at the mailman? When she gets confused and eats your favorite shoes?
To be very, very clear, you are not buying a shirt or a car. You are applying for a job. This job has no salary, no 401K, no healthcare. This job is first, second, AND third shift. This job has no growth potential and will almost certainly end in tears.
It does, however, have fantastic fringe benefits.
This is not your dog. But if you are very, very lucky, you might be her human".
1) These dogs are not livestock dogs. They must be family pets that are allowed inside the home.
2) We give preference to applicants with prior small breed knowledge/ experiences for small breed applicants
3) Secure visible fencing required.
4) You must have a plan in place to socialize your dog properly.
5) Please do NOT write to us and ask if this dog is available. If it is posted, it is available. BUT, we may be working on other applications that came in before yours. If so, by the time you are approved, the dog may not be available.
Health: All dogs have been spayed/neutered unless they are too young. They are microchipped, current on DHPP, Bordetella, and Rabies. All dogs are wormed and flea treated, tested negative for heartworm
To submit an application through email, please fill out the Adoption Application, attach pictures of your property (outside, yard, fence, locks on gates, gates and due to Covid 19 and our inability to perform home checks, please also take pictures of all current pets and interior photos) and the filled out application via email and send it to csalvati123@gmail.com 
We look forward to reviewing your application.

Adoption Fees are usually between $495-$650. The fee will depend on the age, health, and temperament of that dog. Our ability to help dogs in need heavily weighs on the generosity of the public and their donations as well as the adoption fees of the dogs in our program. In most cases, the medical costs far outweigh the adoption fees. We cannot thank our donors, adopters, and supporters enough; without you, we would not be able to help the large number of dogs we do.


We accept credit cards via PayPal, VENMO, money orders, cash, or certified bank checks for the full adoption fee at the time of placement.


Please note,  there is a clause that maintains that any puppies who are mixed with/ or are large breeds, must go through puppy obedience schooling (several levels).  Given that 6 million dogs are still killed in shelters annually and over 1.5 million dogs are dumped in Kill shelters because people don't bother to train their dogs, then get frustrated and get rid of them, we feel it is the responsible thing to do in rescue and adoption.
