What do dog rescues look for in a home visit?
They look for things like holes in fences, or fences that are too low, or other issues that may make them easy for the new animal to escape. Windows without latches or screens that may allow escape.

What does home visit mean when adopting a dog?
Most home visits take 10–15 minutes and include a brief tour of your home and yard. The rescue representative won’t open your drawers or run a white-gloved finger over your baseboards.

Do animal shelters check your house?
Most rescues do a home check. They do this to make sure the dog isnt going to a home where it will not be taken care of.

Can you lie on a dog adoption application?
