Come Meet our Pets:

You can come to meet our Dogs by appointment only. All of our dogs are in Foster Homes, or here with us, so it is necessary to call ahead of time. We are very flexible and are more than happy to work out a time that works best for both parties.

Our Adoption Process:

Rescue is a huge responsibility legally, morally, and financially. Our goal is to get each and every I.C.C. Dog into the best home suitable for them. There is a 3 step process that we follow and it seems to work best for both Pup and prospective Owner.

1.) First you come meet our Canines, and fill out an application. We have a fairly simple Adoption Application. Most information I will personally record at the time of home visit. After this if everything on your Application looks good, we will contact your personal references.

2.) After your references check out... We will do a home visit. Our home visit is very simple, myself and the Dog / Pup that you are interested in will stop by, see how well everyone interacts, and that everything on your application is confirmed. The home visit will take between 35 - 45 minutes. If everything goes well and everyone is content...

3.) We will throughly go over your information, the conditions in our Adoption Contract, and finally sign and seal the adoption. We follow up with our dogs/pups to see how everything is going after adoption. We love these dogs and puppies, so we make sure they are going to the best home possible. Dog ownership is very healthy in many ways. They provide happiness and love, and we expect them to be given the same in return. Please make sure that you are ready for a dog before you get one. You could save a life choosing to adopt, but on the same token, you could save a life if you think about what you are doing before you make a mistake. With the goal of permanent homes in mind, we have a 7 day settling in period. This was put in place so that when people get one of our dogs home and find that it really was not going to work, they are more than welcome to bring the dog back. On the other hand we do want to ensure that people are committed to these dogs, so after that 7 day period has elapsed the dog becomes the sole responsibility of that person. As stated and initialed in our Adoption Contract, the dog MUST be returned to us if the Adopter decides to relinquish this animal.

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.
