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.
All dogs that come into New Hope Dog Rescue are spayed or neutered and receive vaccinations and microchipping prior to being adopted.
We ALWAYS need foster homes who are willing to open their home to a dog in need. This can range from a puppy who needs a good start to a home with someone patient willing to work with the dog. We accept donations of cash (pays for medical expenses or doggie school to brush up on manners before adoption), crate, toys, food, leashes/collars and blankets or bedding. The number of dogs we save is completely limited by the number of people available to help.
1. Fill in the application. Applications are received and evaluated on a first come basis
2. Our adoption co-ordinator will get the foster home to tell you all about the dog and set up a time for you to meet. All family members must be present. For distance adoptions, a homevisit can be arranged prior to people meeting the dog.
3. If everyone decides that dog and people are a good match, a home visit is done prior to adoption.
4. Once approved, the family can take the dog for a trial up to 2 weeks before making a final decision about keeping the dog. (contracts and fee are done at this time).
5. If the family decides that the dog should become a permanent member of the household, then the adoption fee is applied.
6. New Hope is always available to help with any issues that arise once the dog has been adopted.
The adoption fee covers the basic costs the rescue has incurred (eg. spay/neuter, vaccination and microchipping costs). Adults and puppies are $185, Seniors are $90. We require a $100 neuter/spay deposit for unfixed puppies that is refunded when the spay or neuter is done.
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.
