Adopting a rescue dog is a rewarding experience. Not only are you adding a wonderful member to your family but your adoption donation enables us to save more stray, abandoned, and abused dogs.
To a dog lover, owning a rescued dog is a very special privilege. Rescued dogs seem to know they've been given a second chance and usually show their appreciation accordingly in the love and loyalty they give to their new owners.
After what these little dogs have gone through, we want to make sure they are going to be happy in their new home (and we want you to be happy too). Therefore we try and match adopters to dogs based on the adopters' desires and situation, and also on the dog's personality. Since our dogs are fostered until they're adopted we get to know them and their little quirks.
Once you are approved to adopt (see How To Adopt below) and have found the dog you like, they can become yours via a contract and pre-determined adoption donation:
- up to 6 months $350
- 6 months - 2 years $300
- 3 - 4 years $275
- 5 - 6 years $250
- 7 - 8 years $200
- 9 years and over $150
These donations are our main source of funding to cover all the veterinary services our rescue dogs need to get them ready for their new homes. Besides the normal check-up, vaccinations, and spay or neuter, many dogs come in with heartworms, injuries, or other illnesses requiring medical treatment. We also apply to expenses for our forever fosters to assure they have a good quality of life until it is time for them to pass on. Adoption donations cover approximately 60% of our medical needs. The remainder comes from donations and fundraisers.
Our adoption process starts with you filling out an adoption application form (below) and asking three of your friends to fill out a reference form (below). We do an in home interview where we also look around your home and yard for safety issues. After your application has been approved you'll be invited to meet the dogs you are interested in.Application   References
