PLEASE READ THE BELOW INFORMATION BEFORE SUBMITTING YOUR APPLICATION
There are three stages to our adoption process:
- A phone interview will be conducted by one of our volunteers. This may take 40 minutes to 1 hour.
- References will be checked. If you currently have other pets in your home, a veterinarian reference is mandatory.
- A home visit will be done by a volunteer before the adoption is approved.
If you currently own or have in the past five years owned a pet, a veterinarian MUST be listed as one of your references.
Please contact your veterinarian to give them permission to speak with us upon completion of this application.
Note that we prefer and may require a fenced yard for many of our dogs. Exceptions are made on an individual basis depending on the dog's needs, the person's dog experience, the dog's and person's activity levels, home environment and other factors.
We do reserve the right to decline adoption. If your application for the adoption of a pet is not approved, we will do our best to explain the reason(s). A denial is not a rejection of you as a person; it is a refusal to place a pet in a situation that we do not feel is a good match or does not meet our policies.
