Adoption Process

Adoption Guidelines: (not all inclusivive): The person submitting the application, MUST be the person who is actually adopting. The applicant must be willing to undergo reference checks and home visit. All current pets must be spayed/neutered, up to date on shots and on heat worm preventative. ALL current pets must reside INSIDE your home. A fence yard is strongly preferred, however this is not always a requirement. It depends on the dogs needs, your outside environment and your lifestyle... our goal is the dogs safety! Applicant must have stable work history and stable home history. We do not adopt to breeders. We do not adopt dogs a gifts. We normally do NOT adopt to homes with children under the age of 7 yrs- Please NOTE - we did NOT say. NEVER! It depends on the dog, the family and the home environment. Small Toy breeds dogs are NOT suited to toddler or young age children. No matter how well-meaning the child, children cannot help being too "active" for toy breeds. And that a child ”meant well”, is little solace to a toy breed dog, who has been accidentally stepped on, sat on, rolled on, squeezed, or dropped onto the patio. A dog may feel that it needs to "protect" itself and respond by growling and eventually snapping/nipping/biting. Most of our dogs are fine with children, the best we can tell, but we're not 100% sure. Our "Adoption Fee" ranges from $150 - $300 and is NON-negotiable. This fee is an "attempt" to recover vet fees and basic care cost for all our dogs. All dogs have received the following vet care: Exam, ALL vaccinations (age and health appropriate), Heart worm Test, Dewormed, Spayed/neutered (age appropriate) and is currently on Heartworm/Flea Preventative. We also address any other medical issues, based on vet recommendation; geriatric blood work, dental work, heart worm treatment, liver shunt surgery, hip surgery, eye surgery, etc...). The FIRST Step in our adoption process is submitting an online Adoption Application- we will not move forward without having an adoption application on hand. Submitting an application is not a commitment to adopt, nor does it mean you will be approved to adopt.
