Ruff House Animal Rescue's Adoption Process

1. Submit Application

Fill out an Adoption Application online for review at No meets are scheduled until we have an Adoption Application on file.

2. Meet the Pet

If approved, a meet-and-greet will be scheduled; at this time, the whole family and any existing pets should meet the potential animal.

3. Home Check

If all goes well, a home-check will be conducted. Occasionally, the home-check and meet-and-greet are done at the same time.

4. Sign Adoption Contract

RHAR offers an option two-week trial-adoption in order to make sure the pet and new home is the best possible fit.

5. Pay Fee

The adoption fee must be paid at the time the adoption is completed; cash, check, and PayPal are accepted.

6. Take the Pet Home

Congratulations on the newest addition to your family!!

Each animal is provided with age-appropriate vetting prior to adoption. This includes vaccinations, spay/neuter, microchip, heartworm test (if over 6 months of age), and being treated for any external or internal parasites.

Adoptions are not done on a first-come-first-serve basis; we strive to place each animal in a home that is the best fit for them, and work diligently to insure that adopters are also getting an animal that is right for their home and lifestyle.

Adoption fees generally range from $200 - $350, depending on the animal. In some instances, our long-term and medical dogs may have their adoption fees reduced or sponsored to an approved home.

About Ruff House Animal Rescue

Ruff House Animal Rescue is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to helping animals; the lost, abused, neglected and unwanted. We provide our animals with the care that they need and the forever homes they deserve. Every animal that comes into our program is cared for as if they are our own; they receive all necessary veterinary care and are provided with the tools that they need to succeed in a permanent and loving adoptive home.

Ruff House Animal Rescue is also dedicated to helping people as well; those who simply need someone to take the time to help educate them, those experiencing financial hardships, and those experiencing difficulties with their current pets.

Together, we can make a difference in the lives of animals and humans alike.

Come Meet Ruff House Animal Rescue's Pets
