Thank you for your interest in adopting a rescue dog. Please be aware that Dogs Hope is in North Carolina and does not ship dogs.
forms will not be considered, every question requires input
- if a question does not apply to you - write NA or not applicable.
We are trying to match dogs with people in relationships which may
last ten to fifteen years. We want this to work out permanently for both the
dogs and the families who adopt them. Carefully answering the questions
on this form will give us a better idea of how to make that match.
There is no guarantee that
a dog will be available that matches your interests. Dogs-Hope
retains the right to refuse any adoption.
Our adoption process is extensive. Your answers will be reviewed and your vet and/or groomer and personal references will be contacted. Once references are approved, you will be contacted by phone for an extensive interview. If that check is approved, you will be visited in your home by a Dogs Hope Rescue volunteer (or volunteer from another rescue that we have confidence in from your area). In addition, we retain the right to follow up visits at one week, one month, six months and annually.
We require and adoption donation that vary with each animal. Generally $150 (mixes) - $250 (purebred). We do not accept checks.
Rescue and rehabilitation efforts are funded solely through adoption fees and donations. We receive no public funds.
We do not euthanize. Once an animal has been accepted into Dogs Hope, it will be cared for throughout it's natural life and it is always welcome to return here. In fact, our contract will require that you return the animal to Dogs Hope if you can no longer care for him or her, no matter what the reason.
