FEE: Our adoption fee is $300.00. The dogs will be spayed/neutered, vaccinated, and heartworm checked prior to adoption. If a puppy or an unaltered dog is adopted, it is MANDATORY the dog be spayed/neutered by age 6 months for puppies or within one month of adoption for older dogs.
Our adoption process includes filling out an adoption form, an adoption fee, home visit, and reference/vet checks. We do our utmost to ensure dogs and their adopters are matched with strong consideration to lifestyle and needs. If you are not considered for a particular dog, please try not to take offence to this as each dog's needs are unique and we strive to place the dogs in permanent homes. Many rescue dogs have been shuffled around and desperately need permanency to feel secure, and the last we want is to cause these dogs more stress. Once your application is approved, you may come and meet the dog(s). After a reference check and a home visit, the dog is then placed into his or her new home.
Often, we'll receive multiple applications for the same dog. We decide which home the dog is going to based on a number of factors. It is rarely an easy decision, so please be easy on us if you don't get the dog. There are over 3 million dogs killed in North America every year because nobody wants them. Please look to one of them if you don't get the one you are after on your first attempt. Local rescues are posted on www.petfinder.com
