The Adoption Process

The first step to adopting a dog is to speak to your family and make sure you are all on the same page and agree to add a new family member.

If you have already done this, and you see one of our furry friends that may be right for you , then you need to fill out an adoption application .

 

A member of our staff with review your application, and if you seem like a good fit for the dog your are applying for , we will check your references and contact you in the next 48 hours with any questions or concerns we may have, or need clarification on.

Once this is complete, we will set-up a time for you to meet your prospective family member . The whole family and any other pets must be present at the meet and greet .

If you decide that the dog is the one for you , there is a home check required before final approval.  If this is done ahead of time , your new family member can go home with you same day . If it has not been completed , the home check will need to be done, and then your new dog can be taken home.

There are times that the dog you are applying for may not be a good fit for your family . It is not personal. We are just looking for the best match not only or you, but the dog too. We want your experience to be successful.

Applications for dogs are not based on who gets an application in first . All applications will be considered for a dog , and the best match will be chosen . This is not done on a first come first serve basis.

Adoption fees are as follows –

250.00 for adult dogs over age 4

275.00- for dog age 1-3

300.00- 6months- 1 year

350.00- under 6 months

 

All dogs receive a vet exam, vaccines, including Rabies, Are Spayed/Neutered, dewormed, checked for HeartWorm, and microchipped. They also come with a martingale collar and leash .

Our expenses to prepare our dogs for adoption far exceeds the requested adoption fee. We do not “make ” money by charging these prices .  A healthy dog usually costs the rescue in excess of 400.00 to prepare for adoption . Our medical dogs , cost thousands, but are still adopted at the regular price.

The adoption fee is refundable for 7 days  if the dog is returned . After 7 days , you fee is considered a tax deductible donation and will not be refunded. You may return the dog to our rescue for ANY reason at ANY if you can no longer care for him/her .
