Due to the overwhelming number of applications we are receiving it is taking a MINIMUM of two weeks for us to process applications at this time. WE DO NOT SEND OUT CONFIRMATION EMAILS! Do not apply more than one time (unless your application was cancelled), if you are unsure if your application went through please contact us before filling out another one. Please do not apply if you are not serious about adopting, or are possibly pursuing adopting through another rescue. Due to the number of applications we are receiving most of our dogs are being adopted shortly after being posted, so please understand there is a very high chance of the dog being adopted before we are able to look at your application. If you check "no" that you are not interested in any other dog, and the dog is adopted your application will be cancelled. Finally, any missing or inaccurate information will result in your application being cancelled.
