Rottweiler Rescue Foundation GRANT APPROVAL PROCESS
The Grant Committee shall consider all applications for Rescue Grants thoroughly. It is the Committee's responsibility to approve/disapprove the application(s) based on the merits of the application(s).
It is the Committee's responsibility to determine the amount of the grant(s). In deciding whether to approve or disapprove an application and if approved, the size of the grant, the Board shall consider such factors as how active the group's rescue program has been over the past 6 months and the Rescue Policy that the group follows, etc.
Ideally, the Rescue Policy of those applying for a Grant shall include the following:
1. The policy shall require that all Rescued Rottweilers be carefully evaluated in terms of health and especially in terms of temperament.
2. The policy shall recognize that not all dogs can be placed and in some cases must be euthanized.
3. The policy shall require that all Rescued Rottweilers must be spayed/neutered before they are placed in a home.
4. The policy should exclude the use of cosmetic surgery to make the Rottweiler more placeable.
5. The policy should require that all Rescued Rottweilers are tattooed or microchipped before being placed in their adoptive homes.
6. The policy shall require that all adoptive homes are carefully evaluated before a Rottweiler is placed.
7. The policy should include obedience training and socialization of the Rescued Rottweilers to improve their ability to successfully adapt into a new home.
8. The policy shall require that no Rescued Rottweiler shall be relinquished to any party for the purpose of medical research, commercial guard dog activities, or resale. The rescued Rottweiler shall not be relinquished to any recipient whose primary purpose in acquiring the dog is any purpose other than a companion animal.
9. The policy shall require that a written contract be used in the adoption of all Rescued Rottweilers. The contract shall require that if the adoption home is unable to keep the Rescued Rottweiler, for any reason, the dog must be returned to the group which rescued the dog.
10. The policy shall prohibit rescued dogs from being sold at a profit. If anything is charged for the dog, the amount should not exceed a figure to cover expenses on that particular dog, as well as a small donation to their rescue fund.
