How to Adopt
Our goal is to find these dogs permanent homes where they will be treated as a member of the family for the rest of their lives. We always want to match the right dog with the right family and the family with the right dog.
Our adoption fees, which include transportation, all necessary vetting and medical care, quarantine (if applicable) and spay/neuter range from $250 to $500 depending on the dog.
- Once you find one of our adoptable dogs on Pet Finder that pulls at your heart strings, you will need to complete and submit the Adoption Application. Please tell us about yourself and household so that we can do our best to ensure it is the “right match.” We will check your references and current vet. Note: any applications submitted for a dog that is NOT yet available for adoption when the application was submitted will be discarded. We ONLY process the applications for the dogs that are ready for adoption. Please do not apply if the dog is not listed as available on our website or Pet Finder.
- If you’ve been approved as an adopter, we will contact you to set up an appointment to meet the dog. You’ll be asked to sign an Adoption Contract and to pay the adoption fee prior to bringing the dog home with you.
- We will occasionally fly dogs if the home that is chosen is out of driving range and it is absolutely necessary, but transportation cost will be at the adopter’s expense. Adopters that can pick up directly will usually have priority.
Making Sure it’s a Match…
There is a two week trial period for every adoption. If you find within the two weeks that the dog doesn’t fit well into your home, he or she will be moved into foster care, and the adoption fee minus $100 will be refunded.
