Please note that all information must be filled out before an application can be processed.


Below is our foster/adoption application. Please fill it out in its entirety and give your veterinarian permission to speak to us. If you rent, we will need a letter from your landlord that you are allowed to adopt without breed restrictions. Applications may take up to 2 weeks to process. If it is longer, please email to inquire. Being approved for fostering does not mean you are approved to adopt. Please note that applications are kept on file for 6 months and any changes made to the household in that time must be reported to us before proceeding with adoption. Filling out an application for a specific dog does not guarantee you that dog. It is important for us to find the best home for the dog. Your application is good for any dog that will make the best fit for your household and lifestyle. Please note that we typically get more than one application per dog.

Any dog adopted under 5 months of age will require training, paid for by the adopter. All puppies get fixed at 6 months of age, paid for by the rescue, at one of the rescues veterinary partners.
