Interested in adoption? Email for more information and submit an adoption questionnaire to get started!

Adoption Process

1. Fill out the adoption questionnaire below


Our fee is $165. All dogs receive the following medical care at a minimum:  spay/neuter, microchip with registration, heart-worm test and treatment if positive, heart-worm prevention, flea/tick treatment and prevention, thorough deworming and vaccinations for Rabies, Distemper/Parvo and Bordetella. 

2. Meet the dog


Once we receive your questionnaire, we will set up an appointment for you to meet your potential forever friend.  In this appointment you will have at least one staff member with you who knows the dog well and plenty of time to get to know the pup you are considering adopting.  We recommend you bring any other dogs and family members with you so we can help introduce everyone.  

3. Sign the Contract


Make it official by signing our adoption contract! We will also go over all of the dog’s medical records and transfer the microchip.
