What does the adoption process include?
Do you allow adoptions out of state?
What should I expect from the home check?
We look for a safe and happy environment for all our animals. Depending on the animal’s breed and age, our requirements will change. In general, we want to make sure the dog cannot escape and is not exposed to any danger or things like loose wires. If we happen to find a potential issue, we may wait until the issue is fixed prior to allowing the dog to move to its new home.
What does meet and greet look like?
A meet and greet is a chance for you to meet the dog in person and see if you are a good match. Meet and greets usually last between 40 min to an hour and are helpful if you have another animal for them to meet. Depending on the breed and needs of the rescue dog, there may be a trainer involved to make sure you get the right instructions of a boundaries that needs to be set right from the moment an animal enters a new home. It’s possible to adopt immediately upon meeting the dog, pay and fill out the contract at the meet and greet.For some dogs we will require two or three meets and greets before we allow the adoption to be closed.
How will I know if my application is approved?
We give our best to contact approved adopters for the dog they applied for within 14 days of their application. At this time we are not in a position to contact all applicants. Unfortunately, due to a high volume of applications, we are unable to get back to every person as we are working 24/7 to save dogs. Your patience is greatly appreciated.
