Our Adoption Process:

All pets will be vetted and spayed or neutered prior to being adopted. (This is not an option) The adoption fee is $125 for adults and $150 for puppies. which covers the vetting. Interested Parties are required to fill out an application and sign an adoption contract. If at any point the adopter can no longer care for the adopted pet they are to return the pet to the rescue. Out of state adoptions are allowed, but the adopter will be required to pay all transportation fees, crate (if flying) and pay for the health certificate from the vet. In lue of a home visit the potential out of state adopter can submit a video of their home as they are walking through their home. Most dogs will require the adopter to have a fenced in back yard.

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.
