We foster in our own homes and find the best Forever Homes for them. We work together to list, interview, socialize, vet, transport and feed our beautiful dogs. Our adopters become part of our family and we love seeing update pictures and hearing how our dogs are faring.

Our Adoption Process:

Our dogs are housed in loving Foster homes until adopted. Applications are taken, references are checked, there will be a home visit and two week trial period. Adopters pay an Adoption Donation between $200-$395, based on vetting costs and must sign a contract. If for any reason the dog must be rehomed, he is to be returned to us. We require a fully physical fenced yard but will consider the needs and temperament of the dog on a case by case basis.

All dogs are spayed or neutered and up to date on shots before adoption unless very young or sick, then there will be a deposit and S/N Contract.

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.
