Our Adoption Process:

Starts with filling out an application via our website. Once it is received our Adoption Coordinator will contact potential adopters with any questions and also contact references. After those steps are met, a home check is performed. If all goes well, a meet and greet with the dog is set up. If the adopter does want to proceed, they are allowed to take the dog on a one week trial adoption, the adoption agreement is signed and fee given, but the fee is held until the one week is over. After the trial week, the adoption is either finalized and the fee deposited, or the dog is returned to the foster home.

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.
