Adoption Process & Fees
How our adoption process works
So you’re thinking about adopting a dog? Having a dog companion is an extremely rewarding and fun endeavor! Dogs are called “man’s best friend” for a reason! However, it is a serious commitment as dogs can live up to 20 years and you must be able to provide them a stable, safe and loving home including proper health care for the duration of their life. If you aren’t sure about making a long term commitment, perhaps consider fostering. Please do your homework before beginning the adoption process. Our adoption fees are from $250-$350, depending on the age, medical costs, and/or status of the dog.
- Choose your companion: Once you're sure you are ready and willing to adopt a dog, the first step is to view our available pets online. Read carefully through each dog’s description to see which dog will be a good fit. Once you have chosen a dog, the next step is filling out the adoption application.
- Fill out the adoption application: Please download and complete the adoption application in the Microsoft Word program and save it as a Word document. Then email it to us for review.
- Application review: We will review your application and determine if you seem to be a good fit for the dog you have chosen. We will then go through your references (including but not limited to vet references and rental company references) and call you for a phone interview. If all goes well the next step is a home visit.
- Home visit: We will conduct a home visit to make sure your home is a safe and proper environment for a pet. If all goes well the next step is to finalize the adoption.
- Adoption Finalized: To finalize the adoption, you will pay the one time non-refundable adoption fee of $250-$350 (depends on age, medical costs and/or status of the dog) and we will both sign off on the paperwork.
- Enjoy life with your new companion!
