Adoption Process
While we want nothing more than for all of our dogs to find loving and forever homes, we are NOT a first-come, first-serve rescue.  For every adoption we conduct, we take the dog's best interest to heart.  This means that we may recieve several applications for a single dog, but we will take all of them into consideration and decide what is best for that particular dog.  We also reserve the right to refuse an application at any time.  Please do not let our policy discourage you from adopting from us.  We will gladly keep your application on file for when another dog comes around that you wish to inquire about.  
Meet and Greet
If you come across a dog you wish to inquire about, first you must fill out an application.  You can follow the link below to our application.  
Please allow us up to 2 weeks to follow up with your application as we are run solely on volunteers. 

WIthin the application, it asks for a vet reference and personal references.  This helps us get to know you and your family better.  
Once all of your references have been reached, we can move on to the final step of the adoption process.

​Adoption Fee: $125
The last step of the adoption process is the meet and greet and home check.  This is to ensure the safety of our dogs and that everyone in the family (both 2-and 4-legged) like and will accept the new potential member.  The meet and greet is done at a neutral location and then carried back to the residence.
