Dog adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog and you'll have a friend for life! Contact us, or contact another local humane society, animal shelter or SPCA.
The dogs this group takes in are fostered in our homes. They are loved just like our own dogs because they are our dogs until we determine the best match for a dogs unique personality, size, and energy level.
As soon as a dog is rescued by us, they are immediately seen by one of our vets. All medical needs are addressed ASAP. Every dog is altered (spayed or neutered), heartworm tested (treated if positive), and tested for parasites.
We put our dogs on heartworm preventative and flea preventative. Medical care is kept current for every dog. Our dogs are groomed on a regular basis, socialized with people, other dogs and tested for cat tolerance as well.
Once an application is received, the vet's reference is checked. A home visit by one of our volunteers is also required.
The final step is the signing of the adoption contract. The adopters are required to make an appointment with their vet for a "meet and greet" just to establish the new dog with their own vet.
We will only place our dogs with the people who we determine to best match our dogs sizes, personalities, and energy levels.
Adoption fees vary depending on the amount of the veterinary care that was required to get the dog to an adoptable state.
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.
