Adoption Application
All of our rescue dogs are in private volunteer foster homes. We do not have a central shelter or kennel location - you must make a private one-on-one meet and greet appointment with each individual dog at the foster family's convenience. Our volunteer fosters are most qualified to answer any questions regarding the dog. To protect our foster families' privacy, we must have an APPROVED application on file before we release their contact information. We may receive several applications for one dog and we do our best keep our site up to date with available dogs.

We have a 2 week transition period to make sure the dog is a fit for your family. Adoption fees vary from dog-to-dog.

Please note that an approved application DOES NOT guarantee that the dog will be placed with you. The final decision rests with our fosters as they know the dogs the best, and please be aware that there may be other applicants interested in the same dog. We continue accepting applications on a dog until the dog is with the new adoptive family in their home.

Thank you for your interest in rescue. Adopt Don't Shop!
