My story

Here's what the humans have to say about me:

Meet Atlas, a large sweet boy, who came to us abandoned, starving, full of parasites and heart worm positive. To be dumped on the side of the road, left to fend for himself, he was such wonderful boy we could not understand why. He has finished his heartworm treatment and has all his vetting done. If interested, please read and fill out our on line applications below
Please note, the following are recommendations for puppies and different breeds of dogs. We will evaluate each application on an individual basis to see what is best for the dog/puppy and the potential adopter.
Puppies are very fragile and not toys. We recommend children be at least six years old to be considered to adopt a puppy. Small breed dogs ( such as chihuahuas, yorkies, shih tzus , etc) we recommend children be at least eight years old. Herding, working breeds we recommend children to be at least 12 years old.
Again these are recommendations.
Adoption Procedures:
We will travel up to two hours ( one way) to do physical home visits and we do not do virtual home visits. Most of our dogs come from bad situations and we want to know where their forever home is going to be.
While we do not require fencing on all dogs, certain dogs that need a fenced in yard, will not be adopted unless potential adopter has one. We also adopt some dogs to people who live in apartments ( as long as the landlord approves) but not all dogs.
We do not adopt to anyone under 21 years of age. We also do not feel college students are the best fit for most of our dogs. Most of our dogs again, come from bad situations and need lots of attention. Most college students have financial responsibilities and we feel need to be focused on school.
Our goal is to match the dog with a family that fits the dog’s needs. We are solely focused on what is best for each dog in our rescue. These dogs have had enough moving around, dumped out like trash, and we want to ensure they find their forever home.
We do require you sign a contract and if at any time you cannot continue to provide for the dog, the dog comes back to the rescue.
Your first step to adoption is filling our our on line application.
You will then get an automated email stating we got your application
Next our adoption coordinator will be in touch either by phone or email
If your references check out, a home visit will be scheduled.
After the home visit is done, a meet and greet with the dog you are interested in and/or any other available dogs we have will be scheduled
If the dog and you are a match, contract will be signed and you may take your new family member home.

Their adoption process


Submit Application

1st step is to submit our on line app. IMPORTANT! Be sure to call your vet and let them know we will be calling for vet references.



After reviewing application, we do a short interview on the phone to insure family is ready to adopt.


Home Check

The home check is next. This gives us a chance to make sure the dog and family are a good fit, and the adopters a chance to ask questions.


Meet the Pet

Meet & Greet must be scheduled within three days after home visit for us to hold the dog for you.


Meet the Pet

If you do not adopt day of meet & greet, a $100 non refundable deposit is required to hold the dog. (Will be deducted from adoption)


Sign Adoption Contract

Sign adoption contract with witness, agreeing to our terms


Pay Fee

Pay the adoption fee and take your new family member home

Additional adoption info

All dogs are current on vaccines, heart worm negative and on preventive, spayed/neutered, and microchipped. We do require an adoption application, references, veterinarian references, and a home check. Upon completing review of application and homecheck, a meet and greet will be scheduled to determine if the dog you have applied for is a good fit with you. At the time of adoption, a contract is required for you to sign. Adoption fee is $250 unless otherwise stated.
