Our Adoption Process:

Dogs are pack animals and do not do well away from the other members of their pack. The adopter is the alpha member of the pack, and the dog or puppy needs as much one-on-one contact with the alpha as possible. For this reason, all Route 66 Rescue Inc. dogs are adopted to inside homes only. Thank you for understanding we want only the best for the dogs we place in your home.

Because dogs are never safe out on their own, Route 66 Rescue Inc. dogs are adopted to families who agree to keep them leashed at all times they are outside, unless they are confined within a secure fence. We do not want our dogs running in packs or dashing in front of traffic. They are safe when they are confined or leashed. All dogs are to be returned to Route 66 Rescue Inc. if the dog ever needs to be re-homed.

A home visit is required. When we visit, we are looking for a pet safe, and a pet friendly home. We want to see if other pets are congenial with the new family member.

The adoption fee is the vetting fee which is usually $150 to $200. This includes parvo/distemper vac., Bordetella, rabies vac., worming, nail trim, spay/neuter, heartworm test, microchip, and flea treatment. Additional vetting may increase the fee.

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog or puppy versus getting dogs for sale or puppies for sale from a dog breeder? When someone is breeding puppies, they are creating new dogs who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog or puppy and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale from a puppy breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog or adopt a puppy at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
