Saving one dog will not change the world, but surely for that one dog, the world will change
Submit an application! Please read carefully. If there is missing information on your application, we will not proceed with the review.
After your application is submitted, call your vet to release records for us to obtain a reference. We will verify proof of spay/neuter and that your pet has been kept up to date with a minimum requirement of Rabies and DHPP vaccinations, for any pet you've owned in the last 5 years.
Prepare your home! Puppy/dog proof your house and purchase necessary items like a crate, bed, toys, bowls, collar, leash, etc.
When you receive an email that you are approved to adopt, you will then be ready to set up any meet & greets with you and all current pets/family members within your household. During your meet & greet, a volunteer will will also verify if your home is ready for a new pet.
Sign the contract to officially adopt your new family member and love them furever! Keep in touch and send us updates!
We strive not only to find great homes, but to match the home with the dog.
For example, if an applicant is approved and has a cat, but the dog that is applied for is not good with cats, we would not approve that match even if the home is a great home for a pet. We want to do everything possible to make sure each adoption is successful for the life of the dog/pup.
Effective May 2023:
The adoption fee is $325, which includes all medical care while the dog/pup are in foster care, the spay/neuter procedure with one of our participating vets. If you decide to use your own vet for the spay/neuter, the cost of the procedure is the owner's responsibility and the adoption fee would remain $325.
Once the spay/neuter is complete, a copy of the certificate must be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
