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. The first step to meeting an adoptable dog is to fill out an online adoption questionnaire. If you are a good match, we will connect you with the dog’s foster to talk more, then set up a meet and greet with the dog.

Responses to our adoption questionnaires are typically sent via email - please check your spam/junk file to ensure you are getting the latest updates on your adoption.

All adopters must agree to an initial home check and annual follow up calls 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.
