Adoption: Our Process

How Does It Work?

All the animals in our rescue program have been through some type of turmoil. Many excellent pets simply end up in shelters because of over-breeding. Therefore, it is up to the rescuers to find the best "forever" home for each animal in our care. Sometimes, we end up with several people interested in the same dog. Please note, we can't make everyone happy. Please keep this in mind when applying for adoption.

  1. All prospective adopters must complete our online Adoption Application.
  2. Once we receive a completed application we will contact scheduled a home visit. Note it takes a while to find a volunteer in your area qualified to do home check.
  3. After the home visit is completed, we will contact you to set up an appointment to come and meet the dog(s). Remember, you may not be the only applicant interested in a particular dog(s).
  4. Before coming to meet and possibly to adopt a little angel, please first read over our Adoption Contract. Print off a copy to bring with you.
  5. If you decide to adopt a little angel, you will be asked to complete and sign our Adoption Contract and make a financial donation.
All the dogs listed on our Petfinder web site are available for adoption unless marked PENDING or ADOPTED. If you are interested in any of them, or would like to be placed on our waiting list for a particular breed, please click here to complete our Adoption Application. If you are not able to adopt a dog at this time, please consider fostering.

Why Is There An Adoption Donation?

All of our dogs are spayed/neutered, heartworm tested, up to date with shots, and evaluated before they are placed.The adoption donation covers all food, medical and related expenses. Without these donations it would not be possible for our volunteers to continue saving other dogs in real need.

Why Sheltercare Pet Insurance?

We strongly encourage all adopters to enroll in the 2 FREE months of Sheltercare Pet Insurance provided by Petfinder within 10 days of adoption.
