ADOPTION APPLICATION FORM

Thank you for your interest in adopting an Aruban Cunucu rescued puppy or dog from New Life For Paws Foundation (NLFP), a registered 501(c)(3) charitable organization.

Adopting a rescued puppy or dog is a very big responsibility. Our Rescued Paws are often found and saved in from horrific circumstances. Many have been born on the street,  or dumped in trash cans and therefore have had or experienced some other a traumatic start to life.   They each require lots of love, attention, patience and affection. We want nothing but the best for each and every one of our Aruban Rescued Paws. We want to match the personality and character of each puppy and dog with the perfect family that is most suited to them.  

Aruban Cunucus
are known for being energetic and need daily exercise. They are also great high jumpers, so a fenced in yard with lots of space is preferrable, although not required. If you do not have a fenced in yard, New Life For Paws can always give you ideas on how to keep your Aruban Cunucu safe and get them the exercise they greatly require. Aruban Cunucus have a friendly, protective, loyal nature and make a great addition to an active, loving family.

Each of our Rescued Paws will arrive from Aruba with vaccinated (1st vaccine), an implanted microchip and a health certificate signed by a certified veterinarian in Aruba. As an adopter, it will be your responsibility to continue with the required veterinary appointments for the remaining vaccinations, recommended and annal check ups with your local veterinary clinic. We require that all applicants commit to spaying/neutering their Aruban Cunucu as responsible pet owners. We strongly suggest pet insurance for your newly adopted furry family member. Pets usually require a minimum cost of $500 per year for veterinary care, food and other related expenses.
