Fill out and submit the application making sure that you answer every question fully and honestly.
You will receive an email confirming receipt of your application.
An adoption coordinator will contact you. Please note that we often receive many applications for each dog.
If the adoption coordinator approves you, a foster will contact you to answer your questions and further evaluate whether you and the dog are a good match.
Should you decide to adopt, you will move into the finalization phase in which:
You will electronically sign the contract and email it back to your adoption coordinator.
You will pay the adoption fee via PayPal or credit card.
Our transport team will notify you to confirm your designated pickup date and location. They will also confirm the amount of your transport fee, which is based on current fuel prices and ranges between $140 and $160. You may either pre-pay this fee using PayPal or pay in cash on the day of your pickup.
Our adoptable dogs reside in the private homes of fosters; therefore, we are not open to the public. Please submit an application on our website. If selected, we will schedule a time when you can come meet the dog(s) for which you applied.
*A note to our applicants in the Northeast:
You must be comfortable adopting a dog without a prior face-to-face meeting. Fosters can answer all of your questions about a dog. We will send you lots of pictures and you can even request a recorded video or live video call.
