Yes! We have adopted to several states around the country. However, we don't put our animals on transport so, if approved, arrangements must be made to pick up your new pet in the northern Kentucky area.
can you tell me more about the adoptable pet?
We provide all the information we know about the pet in their biography/listing. More often than not, the history of an animal that comes into our rescue is unknown. Spending time with the foster allows us to learn more about each rescued animal.
can i meet the dog first?
Unlike most shelters, we do not have a facility to visit in order to meet the animal first. Once we approve an application, we strongly encourage a meet and greet before finalizing an adoption.
does the dog shed?
Yes. All dogs shed although some may be more than others.
is the PET still available?
We work hard to ensure the status of our animals is up to date across all our social media sites. If the pet in question is still viewable on Adopt-a-Pet and Petfinder, they are typically still available. You can also check our Adoptables page and our Facebook page for status updates.
do i need a fenced in yard?
No. Although, yes, we would certainly prefer it, we realize that not everyone has one. Our decisions will be based on the animal, the location of the property, and the applicant.
is the dog house trained?
Typically, our answer is no. Most of our dogs are in a transitional period and with that comes accidents. However, we try to post this information in their bio. As for puppies, prepare to potty train!
do you adopt dog siblings together?
No, we do not. There are many reasons why adopting littermates is not a good idea. We encourage you to read about it and understand our policy.
do you adopt cat siblings together?
Unlike dogs, cats do much better when adopted in pairs so, yes, go ahead and apply for both! They'll entertain each other and keep each other out of mischief (maybe) ;)
where are you located?
Lucky Tales Rescue is a foster-based rescue, not a shelter, so we have no facility to visit. We primarily serve the greater Cincinnati area including northern Kentucky, southern Ohio, and parts of Indiana.
HOW LONG BEFORE I KNOW WHETHER I'M BEING CONSIDERED as an adopter?
This is never an easy question to answer. We try very hard to communicate as much as possible, but truthfully speaking, we receive an overwhelming number of emails on a daily basis. Our goal is to ensure the best fit for the pet and the family, so we don't process applications on a first come, first serve basis. We read every application that is submitted and then determine whether to send it to a member of our team to contact your references. It takes time to reach them, time for them to return our call, time to do a home visit (virtual or physical), time to do a meet and greet, and then time to schedule the adoption. No matter the outcome, we will notify all applicants on the status of the pet.
DO I NEED TO TRANSFER THE MICROCHIP REGISTRATION AFTER ADOPTING?
All pets adopted from Lucky Tales have the microchip registered to the rescue as the primary contact and the adopter is listed second. Should your pet ever become lost, we will be notified as well as you. It is the best means we have to make sure every pet that comes through our care is linked back to us in the event anything should happen to you or your pet.
