Our adoption fee includes the cost of vaccinations, spay/neuter, dental cleanings & extractions, plus any other medical care that was needed.  In most cases, the fee does not cover all veterinary care.

  1. Submitting an application does not guarantee an adoption, and neither does being the first applicant. First and foremost, our goal is to find the best possible fit for the Pom.
  2. We reserve the right to refuse adoption to anyone.
  3. Potential adopters must consent to a home inspection and for the Pom to meet the entire family in residence.
  4. We will not adopt to anyone who gives misleading or inaccurate information on the application.
  5. To be considered as an adopter, you must meet the following criteria:
    1. Have the knowledge and consent of your landlord if you rent.
    2. Agree to return your Pom to PCCV, Inc. in the event you can no longer care for them. You are not allowed to re-home the pet under any circumstances.
    3. Provide proper food, shelter, training, exercise, grooming, and veterinary care for the life of the animal.
    4. We do not allow electric / invisible fences or shock/bark collars to be used; you must either have a completely fenced-in yard, dog run, or always keep the dog on a harness and leash while outside.
  6. Please read our FAQs before submitting an application!
  7. Adopting a pet is a lifetime commitment. Your pet should be considered a valued family member who goes where you go, regardless of what happens in your life.
  8. Dogs are not born house trained and most need patience and training, which takes time. Housetraining often regresses initially when Poms are rehomed. You must be willing to work with the dog!
  9. We will do our best to disclose as much as we know about the dog’s background and personality, as well as what home would be the best fit. While we will take an animal back at any time, we sincerely hope it works out; remember, adjustments take time.
  10. Please consider your personal situation in life (age, circumstances, financial, home life, children, work, family members, housing type, etc.) to determine if you are ready to adopt. Some dogs do not adapt well to small spaces, and some are more energetic than others. Consider adopting an older dog who is more settled and calming vs. a puppy that will require more energy, training, and expense. If you have an elderly parent who desires pet companionship, we strongly advise you to adopt a senior pet over a puppy or kitten. A younger animal is not only a tripping hazard, it requires more training, expense, and exercise (and can be expected to live 15 or more years). We will work with you to find a Pom that matches your lifestyle.
