Fill Online Application

For those interested in adopting one of our animals, the process starts with filling out our application.
While we dont want to come across as intrusive with the application, we do ask a lot of questions.
This will help ensure that the animal being applied for will be a good fit in the potential home. Our shelter staff are very familiar with the dogs and can help guide the applicant in picking out the dog who will work best in the applicants home

The adopting party must be 21 yrs of age before we will consider rehoming one of our animals to the potential home.
Once an application is submitted, a staff member will contact the references listed. We require a vet reference if applicable, 2 personal references. If the applicant is renting, we require written proof from the landlord that animals are permitted.

Once everything has been verified on the application, it is sent to our board members where it must be signed off by two members. After that a staff member will contact the applicant to let them know if they have been approved or not. We do apologize as it might take a couple of days, but we want to ensure that the animals we rehome, go to the best possible home for it.

Adoption Fees

Every dog is spayed or neutered, microchipped, vaccinated (including rabies),
tested for heart worm, wormed and treated for flea and ticks.

If the animal had any medical issue, that to will have been addressed.
