The Process of adopting a dog  

We want to insure that all of our adoptable dogs are going to be placed in their forever homes. 

We require meet and greets with any family members living in the home, both 2 and 4 legged. This is to ensure that the dog you are interested in will be a good fit for everyone in the house. 

Please do not expect to take home a dog the same day you come visit, at times we have multiple applicants and we ask that you allow us the opportunity to explore all applications as to place the dog with the right home. 

Ask yourself these few questions when looking at adopting, there are lots more but these are just a few.

1. Am I ready for the responsibility that comes with owning a dog? 

2. Am I financially able to care for a dog and all of it's needs? 

3. Am I ready for a 10+ year commitment? 

If you can answer yes to these few questions then you are on your way to finding your best friend!
