Read thoroughly to bottom of page! Follow steps as indicated. Link to application at bottom of page. (please note there is an *adoption fee)
1. Meet the dog you’d like to adopt. This can be done by coming to one of our adoption events. (please see events page for time and locations), or for some of our dogs that don’t come to the events an appointment can be set up.
2. Fill out an application either at the event or online. There is a required *$50 application deposit, to hold the pet you are seeking to adopt, until the home check can be done. Home check are done by volunteer availability. Process is normally one week from in person application to adoption, online applications are treated as if they were submitted on the following Saturday, deposit still holds dog starting actual date of application. Puppies do not go home until all puppy shots are complete or with a refundable $100 vaccination deposit, refundable upon completion of vaccinations.
3. To submit your $50 deposit, use donate button to the right, please include the name of the dog in the memo section. Deposit is not a guarantee of adoption but will hold dog until the process is complete, usually no more then one week (except puppies as described above). Applications submitted without deposit will not be reviewed until deposit is received.
4. After review of your application, for local applicants, we will contact you to set up an appointment to do a home check usually within one week, for applicants that are not local, we will contact you via email for further instructions.
5. Upon clearance of home check you will be able to come to our very next adoption event to complete the adoption process, and pick up your new family member.
6. At the time of the adoption you will be required to sign an adoption contract and pay the remainder of the adoption fee.
