  2. You will need to stay in close contact with the adoption coordinator (AdoptionCoordinator@lolin.org) after your dog has been listed on PetFinder. The adoption coordinator needs to know when you have contacted the potential adopter, when a meeting has been set and when the dog is adopted.
  3. YOU MUST RECEIVE PROOF OF PAYMENT AND THE SIGNED CONTRACT BEFORE YOU RELEASE THE DOG TO ITS NEW OWNER. Our preferred method of payment is via the DONATE button on our website. The applicant should show you their receipt of payment. This is mandatory. You should NEVER accept cash.
  4. We have may approved applicants who are anxiously waiting to adopt from us. It is not necessary for you to find a home for your foster dog. We work very hard to be fair to our approved applicants who have been patiently waiting to find the right dog. This is the responsibility of the adoption coordinators.
  5. Your foster dog MUST have a LOLIN collar on at ALL TIMES. Your foster coordinator will also provide a LOLIN tag to be placed on the collar.
