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.
All our dogs are fostered in private homes . The adoption process starts with an Online Adoption Application. Careful screening and matching is the next step. There is a dog for every person, but not every dog is the best match for a particular person. Many factors are weighed. While we will always take our dogs back should this become necessary later, we aim at the best possible match so this will not become necessary.
Adoption Ground Rules
Potential adopters who are felt to be a good match are invited to visit the dog *, spend as much time as they want, and decide either then or later whether this is the dog they want to adopt and share their lives with for many years to come.
This meeting - without obligation - takes place in the foster home. We do not transport dogs to adoptive homes or meet a potential adopter "half way". The adopter will need to sign a contract and agree to always return the dog to us if the adopter can no longer keep the dog.
Contact is initially only via email: email: firstname.lastname@example.org . We provide as much information as possible about an individual dog, the good and what needs "work". Most often we do not have any "background" because the dog was a nameless stray. However after observing their interactions in the foster home for a few weeks, we usually have a good impression of personality and temperament. And will use that information to find a good match.
* We do not have a shelter or a kennel. All dogs are fostered in private homes. They can be seen by appointment only.
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.
