Adoption Application

Thank you for making the decision to adopt your next family member!

By making this decision, you have made a choice to be a part of the solution to pet over-population! We know that you have a choice to buy or adopt and we want to make this process as enjoyable as possible.

After we receive your adoption application, we will contact you if we have any more questions or concerns. Our goal is to not only find our rescued dogs the best home possible, but to make sure the adoption is going to be the best for the adopter as well. If we feel the dog you are interested in is not a good fit for your situation, it is not because we don’t want you to adopt from us, it is because we want you to find the best dog for you and/or your family.

We feel very strongly that all animals in a home should be spayed/neutered. We understand that there could be medical reasons why an animal may not be fixed, so if that is the case, please explain on the application.

We will try our absolute best to contact you within 72 hours of receipt of your application so please be patient.   It will take us more time to contact you if there are multiple applications on a dog to go through so we apologize for that.   If approved, we will make arrangements for you to meet your chosen dog and possible new family member!  An application by you is in no way a contract to make you adopt the dog.  It is just the first step in the adoption process.

Make sure that you fill out each part of the form.  If the questions doesn’t apply to you, then please type NA so that the form will be submitted.  An error is being given after the application is submitted.  We are not sure why this error keeps occurring but we are in fact receiving applications. 

You can always email us at so ask if your application was received.
