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.
We tend to pull dogs that other people and rescues have bypassed. For example, maybe the dog had mange and most people just felt sorry for it, but would not adopt. Or, maybe the dog was skin and bones and looked pitiful, but not seen as adoptable. It could be as simple as it was a holiday weekend and people had other things on their minds instead of adopting. Whatever the reason, we believe all animals deserve a chance so we try to do our part in giving that to them. We wish we could save them all. Unfortunately, there are too many homeless animals and not enough homes for them therefore alot never get their chance for a new life. The ones that do are often forever grateful and show that to you through their love and devotion.
At present we are not a non-profit so all expenses come out of our own pocket. While we charge an adoption fee of $150 to $200 the actual expenses of rescuing, vetting and feeding a dog are usually so much more especially if the dog has health issues. We rescue anyway because we love dogs and feel obligated to do our part in saving some deserving lives. We will gratefully accept donations to help offset our costs and allow us to continue to save some lives.
Adoption is to the best match between the person or family and the dog. It is not first come, first served. We put alot of love and time into our fosters and only want the best for them.
Our adoption fee varies depending on how much money was spent to get the dog healthy and adoptable. It will usually range from $150 to $200 though the actual costs to us are often quite more. The adoption process will include an application, vet reference, home visit and signed contract. This is to ensure us that our foster dog is going to a good home and will be happy and this in turn will give us peace of mind.
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.
