I hereby give permission to Delaware Pet Rescue to contact my veterinarian to obtain information about past and present pets. I also authorize the rescue to verify the above information. I do understand that DPR makes no representation, warranty, or guarantee as to the size, health or disposition of any cat because DPR is uncertain of its background. I also understand that if I adopt a pet from DPR, the animal will have to be spayed or neutered if not already. Please type your full name to reflect electronic signature.*
