Ruff Life Dog Rescue of Illowa's Adoption Process

1. Submit Application

You submit an application at this link:

2. Meet the Pet

The foster will contact you ASAP for meet and greet. Once you decide you want the pup we goto the next step.

3. Interview

We contact your references provided on the application.

4. Home Check

Once references come back good, we will schedule an jn person or virtual home visit.

5. Sign Adoption Contract

We will then meet at an agreed upon time and place to do paperwork and you will pay the adoption fee ($250 for most dogs, $350 for puppies).

All of our dogs are in private foster homes, so an application for adoption must be completed before a meet and greet with the dog can be scheduled. We do not have a physical shelter that can be visited. All applications will be reviewed by the adoptions committee. If more than one application for a dog is received, the dog will be matched with the best possible home. We adopt to indoor homes only. Adoption fees are $250 for spayed or neutered puppies and adult dogs, $125 for senior dogs, and $350 for puppies to young to be altered, with $100 refunded to the adopter upon proof of spay or neuter.
