Our Adoption Process
Thank you for your interest in adopting a dog!
Each dog in our program receives a thorough veterinary exam upon intake. The senior dogs also get a senior blood panel and in many cases a dental cleaning and any necessary extractions. Each dog is altered, microchipped, and vaccinated unless our veterinarian advises against sterilization surgery or vaccines due to age or other health concerns.
Adoption fees range from $155-$305 depending upon the age and health of the dog and expected future medical expenses that will be taken on by the adopter.
Our dogs are kept in loving foster homes. To meet an adoptable dog, we will need to set up a meet and greet with the dog's foster parent. The first step is to fill out an online adoption questionnaire.
All adopters must agree to a home visit and annual visits throughout the life of the dog in order to adopt one of the dogs entrusted to our care. We do appreciate your willingness to open your heart and your home to a dog in need of a permanent family. We take our role of placing dogs in a new home very seriously and do everything we can to ensure the dogs we place are well cared for throughout their lives.
Often senior dogs make the most grateful companions. They typically are already house broken, know basic commands, need only minimal to moderate exercise, and are content to be safe in a loving home taking a much deserved nap in a peaceful environment.

Whether you adopt a senior dog or a younger dog, we thank you for helping to save a life!
