ADOPTING A FRIEND
Sorry, currently our only international adoptions are Canadian.
The procedure for adoption is as follows:
You can click to complete our
If you are approved, we will arrange for a home visit, this may be done by a volunteer from a different rescue organization.
Finally (if approved) you are welcomed out to visit with the dog/puppy you are interested in.
During your visit with the dog/puppy we will discuss behaviors/personality of the pet noticed while in our care and what the dog appears to know or not know, and any training that the dog may have had in the past. We will also provide a run down of the health record and when he or she will need to next visit the vet. There is a required adoption agreement (which can be viewed prior to the visit by contacting us) and a pre-determined adoption fee.
Fees vary based on the care/cost of a specific dog. Most adoption fees are between $100 and $300, depending on the age and the medical care cost of a particular dog.
Typically males are $150, and females are $200. If a different adoption fee is listed on their bio it's because the dog required some special care.
**NOTE ON ADOPTION FEES: Adoption fees must be paid thru PayPal, Credit Card, Money Order or Cash. NO CHECKS ACCEPTED!...because of a few, this option has had to be revoked. Sorry!
