Yes. I think someone should come to the person's home, a background check should be done, and the person should have proof they can support a pet since animals are not as cheap as people might think. It is a life long commitment to the animal once adopted, and people should not be able to just give the animal back because they can't take care of it, or put it on Craigslist, or give the animal away to someone who might abuse the animal, or sell the animal again.
