*** Adoption donation must be made in cash or check. Your donation covers veterinary exams, spay or neuter, vaccinations, microchip, and medical expenses. ***
Applications are typically worked in time stamp order based on date/time of submission. If you are interested in adopting a dog and have other dogs in your home, they must all meet the potential adoptee. It may save you a trip to bring them with you when you visit, if you are certain you want to adopt a new family member.
*****We are currently operating by appointment only during the social distancing stage of quarantine. If you want to meet this pet, or are interested in adopting, please submit an inquiry or email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Someone from the rescue will contact you and/or your family and determine, on a broad level, whether you might be a fit for the animal. If so, they will provide instructions for completing the application. Your application will be reviewed and you will be contacted to set up a time to meet at the shelter or the foster home. The introduction between you and the pet will be supervised by one of the dog counselors or the foster. If all goes well, you can adopt during the same visit.
When your application has been completed and approved, we will schedule a time to finalize your adoption. Adoption appointments occur from 2 to 4 pm (no Wednesdays). Here is a copy of our adoption contract attached for you to review:
If you feel you cannot abide by our contract, we will gladly help you find other rescues that will better fit your needs. Your adoption kit will include the pet’s medical records (spay/neuter, vaccinations, testing, treatments, medications; etc.), microchip and rabies identification, toys, a copy of the contract and a receipt for your donation.
You may not submit an application until speaking to a staff member at the shelter. A password will be provided to you. Please pick ONLY ONE to apply for unless you want to adopt two together. Our hours are by appointment only, 2 to 4 pm (closed Wednesdays).
Note: Animals in foster care require an appointment.
