The Adoption Process
You can find out more about our pups by emailing email@example.com. All of our dogs are in foster homes and we have no facility where you can see them all. If you'd like to adopt one of our pups, complete an adoption application. Those applicants that are the best fit for the pup will be contacted to arrange a meeting time with the dog they are interested in. If all goes well, we then contact your references, including your current veterinarian, and complete a home visit. Animals in your home are expected to be spayed or neutered, up-to-date on recommended vaccinations, see a veterinary doctor at least once per year, and receive heartworm (for dogs) and flea (for dogs and cats) preventatives year round, or at a minimum from May through November. Exceptions for health reasons will be considered. You will hear from us regardless of whether you are in the final pool of applicants for the dog. Please keep in mind we are trying to identify the best match for each of our pups! Sometimes that means choosing among several great applicants! Adoption fees are: $250 for adult dogs; $125 for senior dogs; $350 for puppies too young to be altered, with $100 returned upon proof of spay or neuter. We do not make profit from adoption fees. Many of our dogs require dental cleanings, a full set of immunizations, some require surgery or heart-worm treatment--these are all costly. And we do not get monetary support from the government. You can be assured that dogs adopted from us will have been fully vetted, treated, and loved on by us!
