Adoption Process

Our adoption process is very thoughtful and thorough, because of this we require up to three visits to establish a bond (between our adopters and the adoptee) and to complete the adoption process. Please note the following steps: 1. First, fill out and send the online adoption survey below you will receive notification that the application was received and a call back from the Adoption Coordinator. 2. Together we will schedule the first visit with the dog or dogs that you and your family are compatible with. This visit could take up to an hour depending on the connection you and the dog have. 3. If everything goes well with the first visit then you and the Adoption Coordinator will schedule a second visit with the adoptee. We introduce any dogs the Adopter may have in their home to the adoptee during this visit, as well as have special time to bond with the adoptee. 4. When the second visit is over, and all seems to be going smoothly, the Adoption Coordinator will then ask if you would like to schedule a home visit. 5. The home visit is to make sure the adoptee is comfortable in the new home, if everything checks out, the final adoption step will take place at this time. You will have now adopted your forever friend.
