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.
Our focus is saving dogs that are in danger of euthanasia at shelters, though we do occasionally accept dogs from private owners so that they do not enter the shelter system.
We are working on our own non-profit status, but presently are working under the fiscal sponsorship of the US Wolf Rescue located in Sparks, Nevada. A portion of each adoption donation will go to that refuge as well as help us continue in our efforts to rescue dogs and find them wonderful adoptive families.
If you are a great match and would like to adopt a dog, you will be asked to make a non-refundable cash donation for that animal. Expect the donation to be between $250 and $300. It is tax deductible and helps cover the cost of at least one vet check, spay/neuter surgery, vaccinations/other treatments and microchip, and it helps us continue to rescue these valuable souls.
As we are run entirely by volunteers, and all of our volunteers work or attend school/college full-time, email is the best way to reach us. We try to respond within the same day but it may take a bit longer depending on our schedules.
After you have submitted the application and pictures, we will review all your information and ask any additional questions we may have. If it all looks good, we will work on setting up an appointment with you to come meet the dog/s you are interested in.
When coming to your appointment, out of common courtesy, please be on time, or let us know if you will be late or won't be able to make the appointment at all - we are all volunteers and give up family and personal time for you to meet the dog/s. Be sure to bring cash for the stated donation. And lastly, if you and the dog are a great fit, be prepared to bring the dog home with you that day or we won't be able to complete the adoption.
Please be aware that:
Unless a dog has a proven history with children, our policy is not to adopt to families with children under the age of five, with the rare exception provided additional information.
We do not necessarily adopt our dogs to the first potential adopter to meet them, but strive to adopt based on best fit.
No matter how qualified you may be, we do not hold dogs for potential adopters who cannot come meet them in a timely manner. One dog adopted to a great home means we have room in our foster homes for another to be rescued.
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.
