Most of our rescue animals are from shelters, we know little of their background or history. Although each animal is assessed and we work with them to deal with behavioral issues, we cannot make any guarantees regarding the animal's temperament or behavior. We try very hard to make a good match between adopter and dog/cat to ensure that the dog/cat is a good fit for your family and lifestyle, but it will also take your commitment, dedication & work, to integrate your adopted dog/cat into your family.
We ask that you give your new pet a minimum of 2 WEEKS to settle in to allow you and the dog/cat time to adjust to the routine and circumstances in your home (incl. both week days & weekends). Many adjustment issues occur after you have spent your weekend fussing over and spoiling your new family member, then when everyone goes back to work or school, the new dog/cat is left to their own devices and may experience stress or separation anxiety.
There is a detailed application to adopt. The application is not designed to invade your privacy, only to ensure that we make the best possible match for you and our animals. Some adopters also find the application helpful as it identifies potential issues that they may not have considered. Once you have submitted your application and have been approved, we will gladly arrange an appointment for you to meet our animals. Please note: We reserve the right to deny an application without explanation.
Adoption fees for dogs range from $350-$450 and include spay/neuter, deworming, microchip, and vaccinations.
