Each adopter will be required to complete an adoption questionnaire. This information is to assure that the animal is properly matched with the potential new home. We require a vet reference and a landlord's approval from all adopters. This is to assure that you've been a responsible pet owner and that there are no surprises with your landlord. You will be surprised at the number of dogs given up each year because the landlord found out about them! You will then be contacted to set up an appointment to visit our available dogs. After that, a home interview will be performed where you will be given instructions on the care of the particular dog, along with discussing options on how to integrate the dog into its new environment. Every household is different. Some have other pets or children and we can offer you advice on how to successfully bring a new dog into your home and suggest ways to reduce the stress of the dog moving into a whole new world. During the home interview, we will provide you with the medical information on the dog and any information that we know about the dog and his prior home. It is during this time where we will go over our adoption agreement with you, and ask that you sign it and provide your adoption donation. You will receive a copy of the agreement to take with you when you pick up your dog. Sorry, we do not ship dogs. You must be able to visit the dog and have an interview before you can adopt one of our dogs. Most of our dogs are in the D.C., Maryland and Virginia area. We have been expanding our rescue to other areas, and are working with other rescues to help as many dogs find homes as we can. If you are unable to visit this area, please check our web page for dogs available through private individuals, or check our contacts listing for a rescue organization in your area. If you still need help, please fill out an application and send it to us and we'll do our best to find a dog within your area that you can visit.
