Adoption Process

To adopt a dog from us, you must be over the age of 21.  To begin the process, first fill out an adoption application. The foster provider will then set up a telephone interview to determine if you and the dog are a good match for each other. The next step is for you to come and visit the dog at the foster home.  Then we will do a home visit at your residence before finalizing the adoption. The final step is for you to pick up your new dog from the foster home. Ongoing contact will be maintained with you to see how it's going and offer training suggestions and behavior advice.

The adoption fee

The adoption fee ranges from $250-$450 for most adult dogs (decided on a case-by-case basis). This is to help defray the costs of spaying, neutering, transportation and other medical expenses. All dogs are spayed or neutered, examined by a vet, given medical shots and treated for any medical condition they may have, prior to adoption. Donations above the adoption fee are always welcome!
