1. View our listings of dogs available for adoption and note the name and breed that interests you. If none, you may still proceed to step 2, and when completing our online form enter the preferred breed, gender, and age you want in the field entitled “Name of Lifeline Dog Rescue dog you want to adopt”. 2. Complete our Adoption Request Dog Rescue Form to apply for adopting a specific rescue dog from Lifeline Dog Rescue, or provide details if you want us to do a search. The online form is transmitted electronically to us for review. 3. After intital review of your adoption application form, a volunteer from Lifeline Dog Rescue will contact you by phone to confirm your information, and perhaps offer any advice as necessary. Be aware that there is a $250-$400 adoption fee depending on the age, gender, and breed you choose which represents a small portion of our actual costs. 4. With a full understanding of your obligations for the dog you want to adopt, we will next contact your veterinarian reference, if any, and place a conditional hold on the dog you request. If specifying a breed, gender, and age different from dogs currently available, we will perform a search within our network for a suitable dog. 5. An in person home check will be performed by a Lifeline Dog Rescue staff member or volunteer before we proceed to the next step. Depending on location and schedules of both parties an alternative may be a drive by home check for a general idea of the adopted dog’s new home. 6. Next, a volunteer or staff member will then contact you to schedule an appointment to meet the dog you selected. We suggest bringing your family including other dogs, if any, to allow all to interact and get to know each other. 7. If you and your family then decide to adopt that dog, and all veterinary care is done including spay or neuter, we complete the paperwork, you remit the fee, and you take your new canine family member home. In rare instances there may be circumstances as mentioned that require a temporary hold for final shots or spay/neuter. That and the timing will be explained up front when scheduling the appointment.
