ADOPTION PROCESS

Adoption Process

We are excited to help you find a great addition to your family and we understand that you are excited too. Please read the following points as they are directly relate to the adoption process.

Adoption Qualifications

1.) The potential adopter must be at least 18 years of age.
2.) All animals in the adoptive home must be spayed/neutered and vaccinated. 
3.) If you currently rent your home, please contact your landlord prior to submitting an application.

 

How to Begin the Process

To begin the process, please fill out a pre-adoption application. The pre-adoption application must be filled out so that we may review your information and decide if you are the best possible home for the dog. Pre-Adoption Application  

Based on the information provided in your application we may suggest an alternate dog for your family.

Most of the rescue dogs are strays that have ended up in shelters. As such, we do not have a complete history on the dog. The information we have is rescue volunteer feedback, shelter information and trainer assessments. Once we have received your application, the Adoption/Foster Coordinator will contact you to discuss the potential matches for your family.

 

Once a match has been made, we will make arrangements to do a brief home check.

 

Adopting a dog is a serious commitment for the life of the dog. Please ensure that your circumstances permit you to make this commitment.
