Adoption Process
(Application is here)


Dogs will be available 10 days after being transported to the fosters' homes. This allows time for the animal to decompress and very rare instances, notice any health issues. After this time period, the dogs will be listed for adoption. Fosters have the first “dibs” to adopt the pet in their care if they so wish.  


Please note that all applications are reviewed in order. However, many factors determine which applicant will be matched with a particular pet. If you are not able to adopt a pet, it does not mean that you are not considered a good pet owner or that your home is not acceptable. Our goal is to place all animals into homes that will best suit their individual needs.

Ensure your current pets  are up to date on all vaccines and spayed/neutered. Unless there is a medical or other reason, we do not adopt out animals to homes with in-tact males or un-spayed females.     

Part of the approval process is a home visit. Since the world looks a little different now due to COVID-19, we are doing "virtual" home visits. So if your application moves forward, you will be contacted for photos of your home - where the pet would eat, sleep, play outside, etc.

Once your application is approved, you will be contacted by the Adoption Director and/or the current foster of the animal to set up a meet and greet.  A contract will be emailed to you along with a PayPal link for payment; both of these will have to be completed prior to adopting if you choose to proceed.


Applications that cannot produce up-to-date records will not be considered. All references will be contacted so it is helpful to give them a head’s up to look for our message or call.

Once your application is approved, we will contact the foster to set up a meet and greet with you/your current pets. If the meet and greet goes well, we can proceed with the adoption process, which includes the signing of the contract and payment of adoption fees.
