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.
Since September 2003, we have placed more than 3000 homeless and abandoned dogs in loving forever homes in the New England area. Every month, dozens of our Southern Great Dogs ride the transport north to their new forever and foster homes. The transport, which is licensed by the USDA, drives up as often as needed and arrives at our isolation facility in Harvard, MA. Our forever families and foster homes pick up their new dogs after the dogs receive a vet check and are quarentined for at least 48 hours per state regulations.
Often times our Southern adoptions are long-distance and we facilitate these adoptions by the transfer of pictures and information about the dog, and we arrange to have the adopter speak to a dog’s foster parents. When a dog is in a New England foster home, we are more than happy to arrange a pre-adoption meeting!
We are committed to matching the right dog to the right family so all will have many happy years together. Our adoption process includes the completion of an application, phone interview, veterinary reference, home visit, adoption fee and contract. The standard adoption fee is $400 for dogs, $475 for puppies 6 months and younger. We reserve the right to refuse any applicant for any reason if we feel the needs of the dog will not be properly met or the adoption is not in the best interest of the dog. You must be 18 or older and living in New England to complete & submit the application.
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.
