Dog Adoption Application

Please use an email that you check frequently to fill out our online adoption application. Applications take our Adoption Counselor typically 24-72 hours to process. You will be contacted by email or phone call; please check both your email and voicemail for potential messages.

Our adoption fees for adults range from $100-$300 and the range for puppies is $150-$300 (covers full vetting, spay/neuter, microchip, and care of the dog). Adoption fees are payable via cash, credit, or debit; we no longer accept checks. Fees will be paid at the time of adoption and may vary.

Submitting this application does not mean you are committing to a dog, nor does it guarantee you will get that dog. It is simply a tool we use to help both you and us identify a good potential match for your family and lifestyle. A successful adoption depends on selecting the right dog for your household and a good understanding of the dog’s needs and care requirements. Please help us with this process by answering the following questions fully & completely. THANK YOU!
