Old North State Kennels Adoption Policy & Procedures
Our goal, first and foremost, is to make the entire process of choosing a Lab a fun and enjoyable experience. We offer our owners some of the finest dogs in the southeastern United States, from Labs with Champion pedigrees for Field Trials and hunting to family pets. All of our dogs are 100 percent Full-Blooded AKC Registered Labrador Retrievers.
Waiting Lists & Deposits
Adopting a Labrador at Old North State Kennels can be done in two ways. First is by getting on one of our waiting list until the litter actually arrives. To do this you must first contact us at Old North State Kennels for information on upcoming litters. Once we have established that we have an upcoming litter that meets your needs, a $250 deposit is required to hold your selection on the waiting list. The deposit can be placed securely through our website under the “Deposits” selection using a PayPal account, major credit or debit card. We can assist you if necessary through our secure PayPal process. Be sure and input the quantity, color, sex and desired parents in the comments portion of the entry screen. PayPal will notify us immediately upon receipt of the transaction. After that, we will forward you an email confirming that we have applied your name to the waiting list of your choice. If you do not receive a confirmation email from us within 24 hours of placing your deposit email or contact us immediately.
In the event that the litter does not produce enough puppies to meet the demand on the waiting list the following options will be given to those owners who were unable to adopt.
Option 1: Receive a full refund of the deposit.
Option 2: Transfer your deposit to next available litter. Please keeping in mind that with this option, you may go up or down in your selection priority.
Option 3: Transfer your deposit to the next available litter that allows you to keep your selection priority.
Adopting a puppy can also be done by continuing to check our website for available Puppies. We post all our litters on the available puppies page of our website along with the Dam, Sire, and puppy availability. After contacting us you can place your deposit in the same manner as those on the waiting list have done through our deposits menu. If the litter is more than 7 weeks old you can contact us and we will process your adoption of any available puppy. At this stage, the full payment price would be due.
Once the litter is born and your deposit is confirmed, we will provide weekly litter updates on our website up to the end of week 6. At the beginning of week 6, Old North State Kennels will call you to schedule an appointment for you to visit our facility to schedule your puppy pickup. The puppy pick priority has already been established by the manner in which deposits were received at Old North State Kennels.
** We take the health and welfare of our puppies to be our greatest priority. We do not allow visits to our Nursery for puppy visits. We keep all nursing mothers and puppies separate from our other dogs and we strive to provide an environment that will keep them safe from exposure to any outside diseases or viruses that could be harmful or fatal to our puppies. The puppies do not receive any vaccinations prior to the age of 5 weeks and are protected only by the antibodies transmitted through nursing. They will receive their first round of vaccinations at 5 weeks of age and typically a second round of vaccinations prior to leaving our kennels at 7 weeks of age. We hope that you understand as a new owner that we are simply protecting the health and welfare of the puppies. **
You can complete your balance in the same manner you made your deposit ( PayPal ) or by paying with cash or certified check to Old North State Kennels.
Personal Checks will not be accepted for final payment of puppy
