Our Adoption Process:

The rescue process does take time because rescue groups want to make sure that they are doing their very best to make the placement of each dog the last “move” for that dog. The first thing you should do is to submit an Adoption Application by downloading the form, filling it out, and emailing it back to us. Once we receive the application, a volunteer will call you to interview you over the phone or we will ask you to attend our earliest Meet and Greet event to be interviewed in person. We will then call your vet reference and ensure that your pets are up to date on their vaccinations, spayed/neutered, and receiving heartworm preventative. If the interview and vet check are successful, we will come to an agreement with you on a dog that is a good match and set up a home visit. All family members should be present for the home visit because we will bring the dog to your home and ensure that your family and the dog are content before the adoption is finalized. If the adopter is out of the Austin area, we need to have a volunteer in the area to perform a home visit without the dog on our behalf. Then the adopter will need to drive to Austin to finalize the adoption and take the dog home...we will not ship dogs to adopters.

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.
