Adoptable Dogs

We want our dogs to get into their forever homes and bond as soon as we find the perfect home. This means we try to complete the adoption as soon as possible. If you are moving or have trips/vacations coming up, please wait until you are ready to bring the new dog into your home to submit your application.

Dogs looking for their Forever Homes

1) Fill out an Adoption Application

State which dog you are interested in. You can fill in more than one name. Make sure to enter the correct email address!

2) Wait for an Email Reply

All applications will receive an email reply. Please check your junk email folder if you haven’t received a reply within 24-48 hours.

4) References

If your application is approved, we will reach out to you and your references!  Please have the info ready to go.

4) Vet Check

If your application is approved, we will reach out to your vet you’ve listed on your application (with approved authorization) and ensure that all animals are up to date on vaccines and fixed.

5) Home Visit

If your application is approved, we will notify you to expect a phone call from one of our home visit volunteers to set up a time for a home check.

6) Adoption Contract

If a completed home visit is approved, we will send an email stating the contractual agreement.

7) Meet & Greet

You can meet our dogs at our scheduled public meet and greets. Or upon an approved home check, we can arrange a private meet and greet but do note – adoption will not take place the same day.

8) Adoption!

If the terms and conditions are agreed upon and the dog and their new home is a good match, the adoption fee is collected and the adoption will go ahead.


Newly adopted dogs must remain on-leash, both inside and out, for a minimum of 30 days

As most of our rescues were outdoor dogs and strays, keeping them on-leash will help prevent them from running away as they are adjusting to their new home. At the same time it will help start building the bond between you and the dog.

Adult Dog Adoptions

We strongly advise that you pay minimal attention to them in the form of talking and touching for the first few weeks to avoid creating separation anxiety. While it’s a natural instinct for people to do this, separation anxiety will lead dogs to break out of their crate and cause destruction in your home.

Our advice is based on lots of experience. You can avoid a lot of heartbreak by following it. Thank you!
