Adoption Application
Adoption Policies and Procedures
Our adoption policies have been carefully considered by our board members. We understand some people may not agree.


Our policies include and are not limited to:
Providing us with a veterinarian reference.
Agreeing to a home study.
Having a fenced yard (There are very few exceptions).
Agree the dog will be an inside companion dog.
Untrue statements on the application result in a rejected application.
Signing our adoption agreement.
We do not adopt our dogs and puppies to anyone living in an apartment, condo, or townhouse.
We do not adopt our dogs and puppies to anyone seeking to use the animal as a farm dog, watch dog or guard dog.
We reserve the right to disapprove any adoption.
And most important, our dogs and puppies always have the final say where they go. We may love you, you may love us and if the dog or puppy does not agree then there will be no adoption.

The adoption process starts with this form. Please complete it in its entirety. We will then process the request as quickly as possible and send you an E-mail postcard when you are approved. Please contact the foster home of your choice after receiving that postcard and make an appointment to meet the dog or puppy of your choice. All family members including current pets (there are exceptions for kitties) need to attend that meet and greet. You are welcome to take your new dog or puppy home IF all goes well at the meet and greet.
