Adoption Process

A positive adoption experience can change the world for both you and an animal in need!

Step 1

Fill out our Adoption Form either on-line or at a Meet & Greet. Yes, we ask many questions! It is through your answers that we are best able to determine if a particular dog is a good match for you and your family. If you are not applying for a specific dog, it will give us the information we need (i.e. experience, lifestyle, etc.) to be able to match every dog with the appropriate home.

Step 2

If more information is required, a volunteer from our Placement Department will contact you, to review your answers, fill in any blanks, and provide you with more details on the animal you are interested in. At this point you will be advised if the dog that you are interested in is a good match or not. Please keep in mind that there could be several people interested in the same dog, our goal is to find the best match for the dog.

Step 3

If you are selected as the best match for the dog, you will be asked to come to our center, by appointment, to meet the animal, one on one. If you wish to adopt this animal, you will be asked to sign an Adoption Contract, and also to pay an Adoption Fee.

Step 4

If the animal you have chosen is determined to not be an appropriate match or there is another person who can better meet the dog's needs, you may go on our Waiting List, so that you will be considered for another animal we have for adoption in the future. Your name will automatically be kept on file for 2 months.

Step 5

If we have not contacted you in the two-month period, and you are still interested in adopting, please let us know so that we can renew your application.

A Few Things to Note

Please understand that an immediate match/adoption will not always be possible.

It is DEVASTATING-for the animals, for our staff, AND for you, when an adoption doesn't work out, and the animal must come back to us. For this reason, we ask for your patience and understanding of our procedure.
