Congratulations on deciding to adopt your new family member! Thank you for choosing adoption. There are so many pets looking for their forever homes. It is our goal here at 4 Dogs Farm Rescue to make sure that each dog we place is in their perfect environment and completely compatible with their new family. This ensures that they never find themselves seeking a loving home again. The adoption process begins with an application. In order to qualify, we ask that you fulfill these requirements in order to adopt one of our dogs:

1. Be at least 21 years old, we occasionally make exceptions for younger, rock solid applicants.
2. Fill Out an Application and impress us with your dog savvy!

4 Dogs Farm Rescue Adoption Process

1. Fill out our application and email it to
2. After we receive it, we'll contact you by phone or email with feedback within 1-3 days
3. You may be invited to meet the dog once we have reviewed your application and spoken with you by phone.
4. If after the initial meet and greet, if it feels like a match, we'll arrange a home visit with one of our knowledgable volunteers.
5. You may then be invited to take the dog home under our foster contract, and the dog will be marked "Adoption Pending" on websites.
6. During the foster/adopt period, there will be home visits to see how dog and family are adjusting. The foster/adopt period may be anywhere from 1 to 2 weeks, longer in special cases. We do not put a time frame on proper introductions and adjustments. Each dog is unique and may respond differently to new environments and situations
7. Once the dog is responding well to you and your family and pets, and 4 Dogs Farms Rescue feels it is a perfect match, you'll sign an adoption contract, pay the agreed upon adoption fee.
In return for all the dog screening and home screening, the rescue and you can feel confident that the dog you take home is a pet you're fully prepared to own.

Our team will stay available to you for the life of your pet should any questions or concerns come up. If this sounds like an adventure you're ready to commit to, we'd love to hear from you!

About 4 Dogs Farm Rescue

Our mission is to find dogs their forever families. This usually begins by taking in shelter dogs who have run out of time or dogs surrendered by their owners. After they come in to our rescue, our top priority is to get them as healthy as they can possibly be. Occasionally, we get dogs that end up in our hospice care program. For them, we find them a loving family to live out their final days with. For the others who are healthy, our goal is the same, to find them their perfect forever homes. This may include training and rehabilitation in the process. We offer follow up training to adopters and do everything we can to make a perfect match for both people and canine.
