    Adoption Application Process

    Rescue will review each adoption application and will interview each applicant, by phone or in person. If the prospective adopter is a likely fit for a particular dog, we will arrange for a meeting with the dog. Our goal is to place each dog with the adopter who is the best fit. At times, we have more than one qualified applicant interested in adopting a particular dog. To determine the best placement, we consider a number of factors, including, but not limited to the following: (i) the amount of time the dog will be alone each day; (ii) whether a dog will be adopted with another dog or alone; (iii) other pets in the household; (iv) whether the dog will be “indoor only;” (v) special needs of the particular dog; and (vi) experience of the adopter. If, after meeting the dog, the prospective adopter wants to proceed, our foster coordinator and the foster parents will consult to determine next steps.

    Adoption Fees

    Our adoption fees range from $250 to $600 per dog and are based on several factors: (i) characteristics of the dog (age, breed, breed mix, etc.); (ii) input costs (e.g. special medical treatments); (iii) special circumstances of the adopter; (iv) special circumstances of the dog (special needs, length of time in foster care, etc.); and (v) if a dog is being adopted along with another dog. Under special circumstances, we may subsidize or waive a fee. All fees are applied to the charitable purposes of rescuing, caring for and placing dogs.
