Is Today My Day Rescue's Adoption Process

1. Submit Application

Submit an application on our website at!

2. Interview

Interview with a member of the board and/or the foster family of the dog you are interested by phone or email!

3. Approve Application

If your family sounds like a good fit for the dog you applied for, your application will be approved!

4. Meet the Pet

Meet the dog you applied for in a mutual location, at the foster family's home, or your home (depending on each individual circumstance).

5. Take the Pet Home

If all goes well at your meeting, sign the adoption contract, pay the adoption fee, and take your dog home!

We want to make this easy and we want to be sure that the dog you are interested in is a fit for you. Finding a dog or pup that works with your schedule and lifestyle is key to our placement. The questions on the application help us know if the dog you choose will do well in your home. Number of hours your dog is home alone, fenced yard, exercise plan, other family members – pets included; those are important things we want to discuss with you and your chosen canine.  We do require a vet reference.

The application is on our website: Complete and send. You can expect a reply within 24-48 hours.  As all of our dogs are in foster care, we will then contact the foster home and arrange a meeting.  The foster home might want to do a home visit or you might meet at a convenient location. If it is a good fit, some adoptions can be completed at that time of the meeting.

If your pup is under 4 pounds or an extra large breed at the age we typically alter our dogs, she or he might need to wait to be altered until the pup reaches a more appropriate age. This is to ensure that the pup is large enough to undergo anesthesia and old enough to not stunt the puppy's growth. If so, we will ask you to sign a spay/neuter contract. We will refer you to a low cost spay neuter program in your area. Sixty dollars will be reimbursed when the procedure is completed. 

All of our dogs are micro chipped, wormed, heartworm tested if over 6 months, on heartworm preventative, treated for fleas, and have age appropriate vaccines. Pups under 16 weeks require ongoing vaccines every 2 to 3 weeks.

About Is Today My Day Rescue

“Is today my day?” That is what every shelter dog asks. “Is today the day that I find a home, get a family, discover that I am a best friend”? We want to tell those dogs: “Yes, it is!”

We are a foster based rescue who aims to serve south central Missouri, an area with a low human population and a high canine population. Our mission is to help dogs from this area find homes in the St. Louis area through adoptions and transfers. After covering spay/neuter costs, 20% of each adoption fee goes to our emergency medical fund so we can help canine accident victims, pay for emergency C-sections, and other health needs. The remainder of the adoption fee goes to the dogs.

We are foster based and do not have a facility. Moms and pups are our focus, but we will help any dog we can. We are only able to accept a dog when a foster home is available. All dogs and pups are current on vaccines, micro-chipped, heartworm tested, wormed, and treated for fleas and ticks. All dogs over 12 weeks have been altered; if too young for this procedure, a spay/neuter reimbursement is provided when the procedure is done.
