Nickel City Canine Rescue's Adoption Process

1. Submit Application

Once you have completed and submitted your application, a volunteer will contact your veterinarian and personal references.

2. Home Check

After your references clear the volunteer will contact you to set up a home visit. The home visit is to ensure your home is a safe for a dog

3. Approve Application

If the volunteer believes you are a fit dog parent, you will receive an approval card.

4. Meet the Pet

When you see a dog you are interested in, you can either send a Facebook message or email to the rescue to be put on a list for the dog.

5. Sign Adoption Contract

Once you have a meeting with the dog and decide to adopt you will sign a contract to finalize the adoption.

6. Pay Fee

Payment can be made by Cash or Check at the time of finalizing the adoption.

7. Take the Pet Home

Once you have finalized the adoption, it's time to take home your new pet!

Thank you for your interest in adopting through Nickel City Canine Rescue! Please visit our Website and complete the Adoption Application. Once received, we will begin processing it as quickly as possible. Our process includes checking your personal and veterinarian references, a home visit, and a meet and greet.

1. Fill out the online application.

2. Once received, a volunteer will be assigned to your app. They will first make the reference calls and contact your vet.

3. After calls have been completed, the volunteer will contact you to set up a home visit. Please keep in mind this is a VOLUNTEER doing this in their free time, it may not happen immediately.

4. Once the home visit is completed and if you are approved, you will receive a pre-approval card and can then express interest in a dog.


**General Disclaimer- Once a dog is posted online it is open to receive multiple applications. We do not limit the number of apps and cannot guarantee the dog will be available by the time your home visit has been completed. If there are already pre-approved adopters interested, their names will be placed on the dog’s list. This is why we highly recommend getting approved ahead of time. If it is a popular dog, it will likely have a list of names before your application can be processed.

Once pre-approved:

Email or Facebook message the rescue stating your name on the app, the dog(s) you are interested in, and best way to contact you.

Your name will be placed on the dogs list. This is a first come first serve basis. We accept up to 5 names on each dogs list. You are NOT guaranteed a meet and greet as there may be people ahead of you on the list!

The dogs foster will reach out to set up a meet and greet if they get to your name. You may not hear from the foster immediately if there are people ahead of you meeting the dog.

If you have a meet and greet and both adopter and Foster think it’s the right fit, the adoption may be finalized.

If a dog gets adopted by another adopter ahead of you on the list, the dog will be removed from the website and the available dogs folder on Facebook. We try to send emails to notify adopters, but this is not an automated system and with so many dogs and names this may get missed on occasion. Feel free to message or email for an update.If you have any questions, feel free to contact us at info@nickelcitycaninerescue.org


We do our best to respond to each email, inquiry, and application in a timely manner. Please be sure to monitor your email account and your phone to ensure we are able to contact you. Furthermore, please make sure your personal references, your veterinarian, and your landlord (if applicable) are aware that we will be calling to ensure no delays in processing your application. If you are concerned because you haven’t been contacted in a timely manner, please do feel free to follow up with us, check in, & let us that you are still interested!

About Nickel City Canine Rescue

We are a fostered based rescue located in the Greater Buffalo, NY area. We pride ourselves on being an all-breed dog rescue. We are a 50l(c)(3) organization and 100% of the money we raise goes towards the rescue and rehabilitation of the dogs in our care. We are 100% volunteer based, with no paid members or ownership. Although we primarily focus on dog rescue we cannot turn down a cat in need.

Since the rescue started its operations in November of 2018, we have rescued over 175 dogs across six states: Kentucky, West Virginia, South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, and Texas. We have no intention of slowing down. Our volunteers work tirelessly to save these dogs from the terrible fate of euthanasia due to overcrowding at shelters across the nation.

Nickel City Canine Rescue does not receive any funding from the county, city, state, or federal governments. Our rescue does not receive tax dollars of any kind . . . we’re only able to assist the people and pets in need thanks to donations from the community.

Come Meet Nickel City Canine Rescue's Pets

We are 100% foster based Rescue located in the Buffalo area. All the dogs in our care are currently living with a family in their home until they find their forever homes. We host periodic adoption events with will be posted on our website and Facebook page. At these events pre approved adopters can meet our adoptable dogs.
