When you are ready to adopt a new dog, we’ll ask you to complete our friendly screening process, which ensures safe and successful adoptions!

  1. Fill out an Adoption Application
  2. The board will review it within 5 days.
  3. We’ll have a brief conversation with you to determine your needs and preferences, find out about your daily schedule, and talk about your previous experience with pets. (Note, you must have a fenced yard and all personal pets must be spayed/neutered)
  4. If applicable, we’ll call your veterinarian to ensure that previous pets have been spayed/neutered, vaccinated, and well cared for.
  5. For renters, we’ll check with your landlord to ensure that dogs are permitted and that the dog that you’re adopting wouldn’t violate any size or breed restrictions.
  6. Lastly, we’ll visit your home to see the environment where the dog will live and answer your questions. This is a great opportunity for you to get valuable input on how to integrate your new pet into your home.
  7. Please remember, an application does NOT guarantee an adoption.

This process typically takes a week and then you are ready to take your Dachshund home!
