I might be a total cheeseball, but this year I really wanted to celebrate my dog’s birthday in some small way. And what better way to celebrate than with a free printable that honors adopted dogs, and the families who adopt them!

Read on for the whole story, or skip to the bottom to get the goods. ; )

Meet Charlotte

Although I just celebrated Charlotte’s birthday, it’s a bit of a guess as to how old she is (she’s six… ish). I do know for sure when I adopted her, though: April 5, 2008. At the time, I was regularly volunteering at a shelter. Although I wasn’t really looking for a dog of my own, I could tell Charlotte was special – and that being at the shelter was already getting to her. I took her home so she’d have a quiet place to stay until the next adoption day, and before I knew it she wasn’t going anywhere. She was meant to be with me! It was the best non-decision I ever made. : )

Since then, she has been by my side at every step – she’s my shadow, and I couldn’t lose her if I tried. She’s a heck of a swimmer, a lightening-fast sprinter, and can turn on a dime. She loves riding in the car but makes for an absolutely terrible passenger. She sits six inches from the fireplace all winter, sleeps all the way under the covers at night, and loves to eat kale (what kind of a dog loves kale?). She protects me against absolutely everyone whether I want her to or not (sigh). She can learn a new trick in a weekend or less, has never torn up a single thing in the house, ever, and has made enemies with deliverymen in more than one city. In short, she’s way more than I bargained for… and she’s everything to me.

Here she is, my incredibly loyal, intelligent, ornery, and absolutely-perfect-for-me dog:

Nothing makes me happier than seeing Charlotte wag that little bit of a tail! I love her so, and I’m proud that she’s an adopted dog. It was the right decision for me, and perhaps adopting a dog from a shelter or rescue was the right decision for you and your family, too. If that’s the case, Charlotte and I have a little gift for you. : )

Charlotte’s birthday gift to you: Free printable adoption kits!

If Charlotte could talk, she’d say: I was a shelter dog, and I’m a great dog, and I’d like to thank people who adopted other dogs like me.

But since she can’t talk (or type, or use graphic design software), I’m going to have to do the thanking for her – with a free printable dog adoption kit! It comes in both pink and blue, and it includes:

• Certificate of adoption (worded to be child- or family-friendly)
• Printable circles with a variety of phrases
• Recipe for dog treats
• Bag tags so that your dog can share the treats with their “friends” : )





If you download and use this kit, thank you – from the happy dog who’s watching me type this, and from me, too. : ) And, now that I’ve talked your ear off about Charlotte, I’d love to hear about your dog! Leave a comment and tell me all about them!

PS. By popular demand I’ve also added a free printable CAT adoption set!

    Heather - this is so sweet! It brings a tear to my eye! What an adorable dog you have! Our dog (Max) had to go live with my husband's sister when we moved to Hawaii (we were afraid he was too old to "make" the flight). This makes me want to go adopt another one! Happy birthday to Charlotte!!

      Thank you, Brenda!! For such a particular lil' mutt, Charlotte really is a cutie (although I could NOT be more biased). : ) I really feel for you that you couldn't bring your dog with you to Hawaii - that must have been SO difficult for you, I can only imagine!! Maybe this really is a sign that the time is right for a new pup? (I'm such an enabler, I know!) ; )

    Heather this is one of the greatest ideas I've seen! We just finished fostering 7 little puppies who were found at four weeks old, living under a car hood in the woods. We had them for six weeks and saw them through thick and thin and just loved them to pieces... especially the one who we adopted as our own : ) I can't wait to share this with the babies new moms and dads!! Happy birthday to your beautiful Charlotte!!

    This kit is such a great idea and so makes me want to adopt a 6th member to our fam...for now though we're set with our 9 lb shih tzu, Melanie. Thanks for the story, Heather, I'm definitely hanging onto this for the future!!

    Both of our dogs are from the Humane Society - Eddie and Tootsie. They are the BEST dogs I've ever had. They're pretty low-key, never really bark and love to snuggle. Of course they hog the bed, wake up early on the weekend (before the baby) and chase any bird, squirrel or bunny in our yard:0) But, we love them!!!

    I'm so excited to have found this!! You are going to laugh, but I'm actually using this for my DAUGHTER'S birthday party :) She wants a puppy themed party (she is a little puppy obsessed)! For the favors, I'm giving each child a stuffed puppy. I was going to try and create my own adoption certificates, but then I found this!!! So thrilled. Thank you!!!

    (oh and I do have a dog who we adopted from a shelter five years ago (and she will be getting a bday party this year too) so I understand the love) ;)

    We have 7 animals (4 cats & 3 dogs) adopted from shelters & an 8th (another cat) that found us just last month when he was is bad shape. This is an increible story of Charlotte! We drove 5 hours each way for Courtney 6 years ago when we thought Kira wasn't going to make it through the summer...she did and loved her new puppy which brought out the puppy in her (7 yrs at the time).

    What a fantastic idea you adoption certificates are, my granddaughter is adopting a little dog tomorrow and this was just the kind of thing I was looking for, I want her to enjoy her little dog for the rest of it's life so I think it is important that she understands this is a real commitment, so we have drawn up a contract that has promises that she has to make to Princess Lola ( previous owner named her) and she has to sign it and agree before the adoption is finalized.

    Thank you so much, We will help and guide Rosie with her new life time friend and we will make sure she is a loving and understanding owner.

All but one are going to be rehomed ( a little sad cause we've grown so attached to them) but realistically we can't keep a total of 8 dogs especially of this breed in our city home. I wanted to include an adoption certificate for the new owners to go along with their new puppy packages when they take their bundle of fur home. Thanks for these. They are great!

    Mrs.Charlie Williams says:
    Oh my Heather! Charlotte is adorable!!
    Our stories are almost the same. I had just put in an order & was cruising your pages & saw this. My husband is a Veterinarian & we got a call a year-n-half ago from someone that told me about a puppy that was being abused by a family, including the children. She wanted to know if I would come get him if she could get to him.
    He would come to her house to be fed. I told her You BET I will! I jumped in my car & raced over there, praying the whole way that she could gain his trust. She did, & I finally got him to come to me after about an hour & put him in my car & took him to the clinic.
    His name is Bandit, this was the name the original family gave him. He's a mix of Jack Russell & maybe Yorkie/Terrier , we're not really sure. He weights 16 lbs. & now is 4 years old.
    I spent about 4 hours with him that night at the clinic. I wanted to bring him home with me so bad, but I already had 2 dogs here & one of them (English Bulldog) does NOT like other dogs,only Miller,(another rescue) who he grew up with. He was very aggressive with others. BTW, we tried every way we know how to stop him from being that way, but nothing worked.
    It broke my heart to leave him that night, but every night after that I spent EIGHT months of going to the clinic every night & spending several hours with him. During the day he was able to stay in the Secretaries office. But when she left at 5:30pm every day, I knew he would just be in a cage.
    The 1st day I picked him up, my husband ran bloodwork on him & we gave him his shots. We found out that he had Heartworms! They had not been giving him heartworm pills. That was Not good news. We knew it was not going to be an absolute that we could get rid of them. During the first 2 weeks, he stole my heart & everybody else that works there. We had to start the treatment & pray he would be healed.
    He unfortunately, had a bad reaction to the treatment & it darn near killed him, but he's s little fighter. Because of that, we had to wait several months before we could try it again but this time with some different meds to help & again praying the heartworms wouldn’t kill him before we could start them again.
    We were told that he was around 2 years old at that time. He had been adopted by these cruel people. The kids would pick him up & throw him on the ground. He was chained in the yard, yelled at & mistreated so badly. To this day, he's scared to be picked up & it scars him to death if somebody raises their voice. When football season was here, we would yell at the TV & he would VERY quietly ease out of the room with his tail tucked between his legs.
    This just broke my heart! I told my husband, we are not going to be able to yell at the TV ANYMORE. And how are we going to do that? lol

    Where my story relates to yours is, because of the heartworms, we had to get him well before we could adopt him out. We wanted to be SURE he was getting everything he needed. This process took 8 months! And during that time, one of the other Dr.'s there kept asking me, "When are you going to find him a home Charlie"? For some reason, in the back of my mind, I knew he was going to come home with me. I don't ever remember thinking that he wouldn't till he asked me that.
    It then hit me, I CAN"T let him go home with ANYONE else. No one would take care of him like I do. That's when I knew he had worked his way into my heart. Like you said ,"It was the best non-decision I ever made."
    My English Bulldog who was my baby, passed away. He was 12 years old. A few weeks after he died, I knew it was time to give Bandit a home. I had to get him out of that into a home. I was so torn up about the loss of my Bosley, but I knew I had to do something for Bandit & it was time. I was either gonna have to give him to someone else or bring him home with me.
    He is my shadow & my heart. He’s soooo smart & loves to watch TV. He’ll sit & watch a whole animated movie with you. lol. He’s had a ruff little life but gets spoiled rotten now.
    Our other sweet little rescue Miller belonged to my mother & when she passed away, we kept him. He’s a Shih Tzu/Terrier Mix & now is 14 years old.
    He also, was a rescue that someone brought into the clinic & told us, they wanted to put him to sleep, because they were told they couldn’t have an animal where they lived. He was a 6 month old puppy! People can be so crazy! My mom wanted a puppy so we took him to her & he was her joy for the last 2 years of her life. Now he’s ours
    I just want to say Thank You for doing such a wonderful thing for the adopted animals with the printable's & your adoption. You are a good soul & I loved your story!! <3

He won the doggie lottery when he found you and your family and my heart is just bursting to think about how happy he must be. : ) I think rescued dogs KNOW they are lucky, they really do!

As a dog lover, mom to 2 rescued yorkies & a volunteer dog rescuer (through United Yorkie Rescue,) I really appreciate you posting your story & advocating for shelter dogs.

Obviously, purebreds show up at shelters ALL the time, and rescues like yours go the extra mile for breeds in need. Big wags and kisses from Charlotte to you and your pups! : D

    We have adopted two wonderful dogs from our local shelter. We had Chuck (an adorable beagle) for 12 years. We now have Buddy, approx. three years old He is a poodle/bishon/? mix. He is the MOST loveable dog we have ever owned...he is never far from my hubby or I. Can't imagine my home without a dog and there are far too may dogs in the shelter that need a home. Thank you for sharing your Charlotte with us!

    I took in a rescued senior dog a week ago and we love her dearly. My daughter printed this for me in black and white and I came back to print it in pink for our Mattie Rose. The certificate and stickers will be used on her scrapbook page. I am going to bake the treats and use the labels to share the treats with my daughters two poodles. Thank you so much. The timing was perfect!!

    Hi Heather,

    I love the dog adoption kits! I was looking for a printable small pet adoption certificate. My daughter and I are now proud parents to a pair of female gerbils, Dusk and Dawn. The joy the little furry girls bring to my daughter is amazing. I would like to find a printable Birth/Adoption certificate that I could make for each of the Gerbils with their pictures. Do you know where I can find somethiong like this?

    Woofie and Mia were up for adoption so we took both of them! They have been great pups since 2009 and still protecting us and our home! they are sweet to the family but not to strangers who come up to the fence. just what we wanted around here if ya know what I mean! We have other adopted pets too, kitties, and everyone gets along wonderfully. i wish every dog and cat could get a loving forever home too! Thank You for the snack recipe too, I love to bake for everyone, including the people!! :)

So the words would mention that they have sponsored a pet rather than adopted a pet? We have a birthday party for my son that we are holding at the local animal shelter to support their animals on Aug 1 and we would love to use certificates that are as beautiful as yours!!!

This 120 lb "lap dog" loves us unconditionally and we couldn't be more blessed to have her in our home. My daughter is turning 7 in a few weeks and all she wants to do for her birthday is have a puppy party with her friends. I would love to use these adoption papers for the party to give away a puppy stuffy!

    I just came across your certificate packs and I think it's a fantastic Idea.
    My pure breed Siberian Huskies Maya and Max had a litter of 7 stunning puppies. 4 boys and 3 girls. I would love to print these packs out and hand them to the new puppy parents with all of the information of each puppy along with their vet check certificate and certificates of health.
    I will let you know what they think of the gesture.

    I have 5 dogs 2 Cats and 2 Ferrets yes a zoo but they are my babies and so spoiled I have Remington who is a 3yr old Chihuahua mix and he is my spoiled stalker. He goes where I go or he acts like he is abused if I leave him. I have Big Show also a Chihuahua mix who is my sons baby and he really acts like a baby and gives hugs. Princess another chihuahua and she is just the lady of the house. I have Bubba my red heeler who is my old man. He blind and is so lovable he will pet himself if you let him. Last dog but not least is Kyah my Shepard mix who adopted us. She just showed up one day and never left. I have the two cats Powder and Patches who are brothers. They are the best mousers in the world. They are super smart and never needed a litter box because they house trained themselves to go out side like the dogs. My ferrets Phynius and Harleigh are my little guys. They think they are ten foot tall and bullet proof when it comes to the dogs. The dogs know not to touch them because they will stand up and show them who is boss.

    This is so cool! I'd love to print these out and use them if I worked at a shelter or something. It'd be neat if you could also put a picture of a dog somewhere on the certificate, though I suppose "real" certificates don't usually have photos on them... but still... with a picture of the dog on it it'd make for an even cuter thing to frame and hang.
