The following information is requested so that we can assist you in the selection of a new dog. Our goal is to place animals in loving, safe homes with compassionate people who will make lifelong commitments to them by accepting them as a member of their family. The adoption process is designed to help determine the best match between the pet and the lifestyle of the adopter. This also enables us to determine if the adoption is in the best interest of the pet.

In order to adopt a dog or puppy you must:
  • Before completing this application please understand that ALMOST ALL of our dogs and puppies are fostered in the south. Petfinder indicates that the dogs are in Westport CT, but they are only in CT if it states so within their description paragraphs.
  • Preferably own your own home
  • Be 21 years of age or older
  • Have identification showing your present address
