Adopt ♡

There are many reasons why adopting a pet can be a wonderful experience for you and your loved ones. We firmly believe that our dogs know that their lives were saved and going to take a turn for the better.


Some reasons why adoption is the way to go are:
1. You're saving a LIFE!
2. You'll get a GREAT animal.
3. Pets are good for your HEALTH.
4. You are fighting against puppy mills.
5. Lastly, you will change your homeless animals whole entire world <3 

Note: This application is NOT a commitment to adopt.  The purpose of this application is to match you with the dog that will best suit your family and lifestyle.  Typically, there is a 2 week Foster-to-Adopt period before your adoption is final.  This will give you an opportunity to see if the dog seems to be a good fit for you.  Our adoption donation is $300 for adults, and $400 for puppies under a year old. This donation only partially reimburses the rescue for the investment that we make in each dog's care. All donations go directly to our dogs. 

PLEASE PUT AN ANSWER IN EVERY FIELD WITH AN ASTERISK (*) TO SUCCESSFULLY SUBMIT THE APPLICATION.  Answer each question completely and truthfully, if for any reason the question does not apply to you, please mark "N/A".
