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 find great homes for rescued dogs and puppies who would otherwise die in shelters or live short, miserable lives. Once we receive a dog, we provide medical care, including spay and neuter, and any necessary rehabilitation. Please consider adopting!!!
All our dogs are fostered in private homes and receive full vet care and are screened for temperament.
After receiving a completed application, we will contact the applicant within a few days and begin the approval process. The approval process involves a combination of phone interviews, a veterinarian check, reference check and at times a home visit. For applicants outside our local area, part of the approval process is to obtain emailed photos of an applicant's home, yard, family, and other pets, since conducting a home visit may not be feasible.
We offer a 3-week trial period to ensure that both the family and the dog are happy with the results of the adoption. We feel that this is especially important when there are other caine or feline members of the family. Within that time, we will refund the full adoption fee if the dog is returned. We want to be sure that our dogs will have their perfect forever homes.
Every person who is selected to adopt a dog from us will be required to sign our Adoption contract.
Our goal is to help you enjoy life with your new dog. We will contact you by phone or email each week during the 3-week trial period to check in. If issues arise, or you just need some advice on housetraining, behavior issues, etc. we will be happy to assist. We love to recieve updates with photos from adopters. Seeing our dogs happy, healthy and loved in their forever homes reminds us of why we do what we do.
We are committed to the life, health and well being of every dog we place for the remainder of that dog's life. If a situation arises which cannot be helped and you are unable to keep a dog you've adopted from us, then you must either return the dog to us or obtain approval to transfer ownership to a friend or relative.
Rescued dogs are not free. Most rescued dogs require medical attention, as many have not had any recent medical attention in their previous situation. Our dogs are fully vetted before they are placed into adoptive homes. They are spayed or neutered, brought up-to-date on their vaccinations, tested for heartworms ( dogs/puppies over the age of 10 months), dewormed and started on heartworm and flea and tick preventative.
Many of our rescued dogs also require veterinary care for various conditions, in most cases our costs exceed the dog's adoption fee. We require an adoption fee to help us cover these costs. The adoption fee is non-refundable after the 3-week trial period. All adoption fees are used for the purpose of rescuing, providing medical care and placing homeless dogs into their forever homes.
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.
