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 wish we had the volunteer base and resources to drastically expand our adoption area, but we just don't. Part of our approval process is a home visit - so we need to have a volunteer within a reasonable distance from you in order to fulfill that part of the process. There are plenty of wonderful, homeless animals in rescues and humane societies across the country looking for loving homes though, so you shouldn't have to travel too far to adopt one.
If we do not have a volunteer within a reasonable driving distance to you in our area, we'll let you know that we are unable to process your application.
To learn more about adopting one of our dogs, please review our adoption policies. If you are interested in adopting a FOHA dog, please complete a Dog Adoption Application at www.foha.org
Friends of Homeless Animals reserves the right to refuse placement of any animal for any reason. The well-being and safety of the animal comes first. Friends of Homeless Animals requires that all dogs and cats adopted from our organization be family members and thus dwell inside the home.
Adopters must be at least 21 years of age.
Once your adoption is approved, you must complete and sign an adoption contract and pay an adoption donation fee. The adoption donation fee reflects your commitment to your new pet and allows FOHA to continue its work of saving and rehabilitating animals in need. Adoption fee for dogs: $325 for one / $50 discount for second dog. An additional $5/per dog will be charged per bag of dog food. This is a required purchase in order to wean the dog/puppy to the food you choose to use. Puppies under 1 year old: $375
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.
