Rescue FAQs

Our organization does home visits, so, if we can drive there, we will adopt.

Additional adoption info

We ask the potential families to visit the dog, then, if interested in going further, email them an application. The application is for the purpose of knowing a family's strengths in pet ownership and where we can help.
We then do the home visit to get the dog comfortable, fill out the contract and complete the adoption.
We support the families after adoptions and keep in contact with them with updates and helping with issues that may arise.
We require the family to take the dog to positive training that is approved by our organization.
We also work with a healthy diet and give additional information.
