Our Adoption Process:

In order to be considered as an adopter from Ponderosa Pomeranian Rescue:

Live in the Austin Metro Area.
Be 21 years of age or older.
Be able and willing to spend the time and money necessary to provide training, medical treatment and proper care for a pet for the entire life of that animal.
Have the knowledge and consent of your landlord.
Have the knowledge and consent of all adults living in household.
Understand that children's age restriction will be based on their exposure to and experience with this specific breed.
Understand that PPR has the right to either deny or approve your adoption application without explanation.

Standard Adoption Fee is $200 for males and females, $150 for seniors, $300 for puppies. Adoption fee's rarely cover our costs in caring for all of our dogs, the majority of dogs we take in require vetting in excess of $400. Any amount that you can donate in addition to the fee is greatly appreciated and is tax deductible.

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.
