Completion of this application does not guarantee acceptance as an adoptive home/parent. Before taking the time to fill out this application, we recommend that you read the profile of the dog you are applying for to make sure the dog sounds like a good fit for your family.
Please note that we charge an adoption fee in the form of a donation for the adoption of our dogs.
$425 for dogs under 1 year old, $350 for dogs 1 to 7 years old, $275 for dogs 8 years or older. (Note that a discount will be given for the adoption of a bonded pair). This fee helps to cover a portion of the costs incurred for vet bills and transport and enables us to rescue the next dog in need.
Most of our dogs are spayed/neutered prior to being adopted. For puppies that are too young to be altered, an additional $100 spay/neuter deposit will be required. You will be required to provide a proof of spay/neuter signed by your vet within 4 months of adopting the puppy at which time your $100 deposit will be refunded to you.
AREAS WE SUPPORT:
We are primarily based on the East Coast and our rescues are available for adoption in the following states: NY, NJ, Eastern PA, DE, and some areas of MD. We have a limited number of dogs fostering in California and these dogs are available for adoption in the East Bay area (between San Francisco and San Jose).
We are unable to make exceptions to adopt in other states at this time. We require our dogs be placed within a several hour drive of our foster network. Although we do our best to find a good match between each dog and their adoptive family, on occasion the dog does not turn out to be a good fit. We must be within driving distance to our adopters in the event the adoption does not work out.
Please answer all questions to the best of your ability.
