Our mission is evolving: we are all about the dogs. Basically, in entirety, our purpose is to do good things for dogs. We aim to make a perilous situation, something wonderful, one dog at a time. We ask that you take the time to complete our application honestly and thoughtfully. We ask that, if you like our mission, and you find us worthy, you join our transport network to make future changes.
Phase 1: Our adoption board reviews your application and upon approval we place your application in to Phase 2. Phase 2: requires three members of our board to contact you, your vet, and your references. This gives us an idea of who you are and offers you the opportunity to address any of your questions or concerns. We not only want to ensure that all our adoptive dogs find great homes, we want to be sure that you are comfortable with your new family member. That leads us to last phase of our adoption process, Phase 3. Phase 3: The official meeting of your new four legged baby. We know that not all dogs bond well with their potential Mommies and Daddies. It is common to apply for one dog and bring home another. Sometimes a dog will choose you! This is why we like to have you come to our location, and take time to bond with our dogs. Have a dog at home now? We encourage you to bring all of your current family members to this meeting, two legged and four legged. Sound like a lot? We can generally finish an adoption within a week. This process is what sets us apart from the average rescue. We will not send you home with one of our dogs and abandon you. We love and care for these animals and they have become part of our family too. We have an amazing community of adopted families that are always available to answer questions and help meet any needs you may have in the future.
