Visit this organization's web site to see any additional information available about this pet.

Adoption Process

  • We do not process applications unless a specific dog is selected, along with submitting a deposit of $200 using our Paypal Donate link located below.  Please understand we are all volunteers with limited resources - your deposit tells us you are serious.  Click here to complete our online adoption application!
  • Transport costs are included unless otherwise noted in the adoption bio 

Deposit Information

  • Once we have your deposit we will hold the dog for you while we process your application
  • If you are not approved to adopt or we can not provide the dog you are interested in, your deposit is refunded
  • If you are approved, the deposit is applied toward the total donation of the dog.
  • If the dog is not a good match, we will work with you to find another dog, but the deposit is NOT refundable.
  • Adopting a pet is a wonderful thing to do! We do however want to make sure that you are serious and understand the cost and overall responsibility of the pet. If you change your mind for any reason after a deposit is made that money will be forfeited as a donation to the rescue

Their adoption process

Additional adoption info

Our dogs listed on Adopt a Pet all have initials following the name of the dog. The initials show the State: RI, CT, NJ, NY, etc. where these dogs are being fostered.
If you see a dog with initials after the name of the dog, these are dogs that are not in our LOCAL area but transport will be arranged for those dogs. For example: W, CF, M, RH, etc.

Please remember that we are ALL volunteers & will respond to you as quickly as we can in all communications. We are not paid volunteers and try to keep the phones and emails manned but sometimes there may be a lapse in time. We appreciate your patience.


Step 1 - Complete an online application -

Step 2 - Please reserve your dog by making a $200 deposit on Paypal -

E-mail address to use for deposit (which is applied toward total donation) is:

You can meet any of our local dogs with JUST an online application and NO deposit, but must be approved, etc. 1st in order to take your dog home.

Step 3 - Let your references know that a volunteer will be contacting them.

Step 4 - Once your references are contacted, a volunteer will be in touch to arrange your home visit.

Step 5 - Once you have been approved, pick up information, balance due, and adoption contract will be e-mailed to you.

Please remember our dogs generally all have a pull fee from a shelter, LOTS of vet costs for initial shots and tests, spay or neuter, and then transport costs to bring the dogs to our area. This is just the beginning of the costs for a rescue. We then depend on our volunteers to buy the dog food, we pay for any additional vetting costs and grooming for the dog. There are many costs and we depend on our adoption donations to HELP pay our costs. We are a non-profit charity 501(c)3 and depend on donations for rescuing our dogs. Most times, the adoption fee does not cover the costs associated with that dogs rescue costs.

Donations are listed on each dog's description.

References listed on your application will be checked prior to any meetings with a dog. We do require a HOME VISIT PRIOR to any adoption.

Some dogs are local, but many are not - they are in various locations so it will not be possible to meet some of them before you adopt.

We only will transport the dogs if you make a firm commitment and a $200 DEPOSIT as the paid transport is costly & difficult to arrange & we do not have enough foster homes.

Deposit Donations can be made by Paypal:


Go meet their pets

We do NOT have a shelter. All our dogs are fostered in individual homes. Meetings are by appointment only after you have completed our online application. Please check our website for events in RI where you can meet our dogs. THANKS!
