You will want to have your veterinary and/or personal reference information handy, as well as landlord information if you are a renter, to fill out the application completely.
• We will not pursue an incomplete application
• Once complete, you can speed up process by contacting your vet's office and giving them permission to release information. We may dismiss the application if this is not completed.
• Volunteers handle dozens of applications at a time so we do not guarantee contact with everyone. We try our best, but we are working around jobs, kids, and of course, dogs.
•Adoptions generally take longer than 4 days to process but there is no set time frame. We do the best we can as a non-profit, so please be patient.
Hoyt is a very large boy who is in need of a special home. Please note, we have set specific criteria for him to ensure a positive placement, not to be strict. He is a great boy who doesn't know his own strength and has some fear & anxiety issues that are very workable but someone MUST commit to his training in order to adopt him. Hoyt is looking for a home with no kids under 6yrs old. Hoyt has done well with many dogs in a play setting but does get very jealous at home and would be best if he was an only dog. He has not hurt another dog or person, but he has growled on occasion at dogs when they are in his space. He has been fine around the cat. He is also in need of a home that will take him to training to continue learning skills and confidence and better ways to manage fear. He loves to use his crate as his safe place. He tends to be more fearful out in public and when guests come over so this cannot happen without additional training to know it is ok for him. He would do best in a home where they agree to keep him on Prozac not have him left home alone more than 5hr stretches. Hoyts adoption fee is $200 which includes his neuter, rabies, vaccinations, heartworm test (neg) and microchip.
