Northwest Dog Project's adoption process


Submit Application



IF your application is selected as a match for a dog, we will reach out to your references and request a home tour video.


Meet the Pet

IF your references and home tour video are approved, you will be invited out to our rescue location to meet our dog(s).


Sign Adoption Contract

IF the meet & greet goes well, you will be asked to pay the adoption fee, sign the contract, and are ready to take your new dog home!

Additional adoption info

Please note, we have a thorough adoption process in order to make the best match possible for both our dogs and our adopters! There are times when we schedule a few meet & greets for one dog prior to making a final decision.

Support adoption and rescue. Why go to a dog breeder, cat breeder or pet store to buy a dog or buy a cat when you can adopt?

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life.

What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder?

When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes.

So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
