Canine Adoption Application
The non-refundable adoption donation for canines is $165.

This form is designed to help you find the dog most compatible with your lifestyle. Completion of this application does not guarantee adoption of an ELPO dog. Please respond to the questions as completely as possible.

In order to adopt from East Lake Pet Orphanage you must:

1.) Be 21 years of age or older
2.) Have a valid driver's license
3.) Be the receiving owner of the dog. No gift adoptions are permitted.
4.) Be willing to provide proper care, training, and medical treatment for the dog.

Filling out an application does not guarantee approval to adopt a pet. Also, orphanage staff may not be aware of how many applications are in process on an individual pet since applications are accepted at multiple locations and online. Priority is given to previous adopters with a history optimal pet care, the best adoptive situation for a pet based on the pet's personality, as well as the chronology with which applications are received. Once approved, you will receive notification by email or phone call, generally within 72 hours to a week, when a full application review and verification can be completed. Incomplete applications are not considered. Thank you for your patience and understanding as we try to facilitate the best matches for our orphans and their new prospective adoptive families.
