My story

Johnson is such a playful, goofy, and loving pup! He enjoys playing with toys and his foster dog siblings, running around the yard, and cuddling up for a good nap. He knows basic commands, is house and crate trained and good in the car, and has been working on leash training. He is still unsure of on-leash intros with other dogs so would benefit from further training. Luckily, he is food motivated (and gentle when taking treats) and pretty smart too! He would love a fenced in yard and perhaps even another playful doggy sibling. His experience with other animals, like cats, is unknown, although he loves to chase squirrels (hasn’t caught one yet) but has been friendly with smaller dogs. He loves just about everyone he meets (as long as he can smell you first!) and is even good with kids. Johnson can’t wait to be your new best friend!

Their adoption process

Additional adoption info

Found an animal on our site and want to meet them or find out more about them? Fill out the adoption questionnaire located below and submit to us. Once we have reviewed/approved your application, we will provide you with the foster contact information so that you can find out more and arrange a “meet and greet”. All of our animals are located in foster homes throughout the Triangle area.

When going to a “meet and greet”, please make sure you take any family members and other pets (if at all possible) to observe their interactions. This can make introduction into the new home easier for the animals and for you.

The animal’s foster parent will ultimately make a recommendation to the organization regarding the permanent placement of the animal. Once an adoption decision has been made by both parties, we ask for an adoption fee to help us cover spay/neutering, shots, medical treatment, food and supplies – this amount only partially cover the cost of expenses and allows us to help as many animals as possible!

What if the adoption doesn’t work out? We have a lifetime return policy on our animals as we don’t want to see them turned back into a shelter.
