For how long? Until placed? :

If a Dalmatian is placed with me/us, I/we agree to cooperate with ROCKY SPOT RESCUE (RSR) in its attempt to provide a smooth adoption. I also agree to contact RSR about problems that might arise in the future. Should the dog need to be placed or euthanized (prior to normal old age), I will contact RSR first to determine whether the dog might be a candidate for placement elsewhere.

If the Dalmatian placed with me is not neutered, I agree to give RSR a deposit of $100 and to neuter the dog within agreed on time frame. I realize I can not sign formal adoption papers until this is done. Once proof of neuter is received, the deposit will be refunded. If dog is not neutered within time frame, I agree to relinquish the dog to RSR.
