Adoption Applicant Steps:
1. Contact A.S.K. toll-free for an adoption survey
877-596-7776; leave a # we can reach you at.
2. A.S.K. will email you our adoption survey. Return survey either via scan/email, or snail mail.
3. Survey is reviewed and A.S.K. will call you to discuss any questions.
4. If you seem like a good fit for the dog, we will arrange a meet n' greet. This may be at a public location.
5. A second meet n' greet is arranged at your home. We ask all members of your family be present to meet the dog.
6. The dog returns with A.S.K. and we collectively discuss the adoption. If we proceed, this is the final step, and the dog is adopted!
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.
