The pups in our care come from a variety of unfortunate situations including overcrowded shelters where they were at risk for euthanization. They have either been dropped off by previous owners for various reasons or picked up by local animal control personnel. Many are confused, scared, and have unknown histories. We bring these pups into our care and place them in the homes of our valued lifesaving team members where they are provided proper nutrition, immunizations, worming, socialization, love, and other needed interventions required for to enhance their well-being and ready them for adoption placement. Each pup is microchipped, has received their age appropriate vaccinations, has been wormed, and has been spayed/neutered prior to adoption. Our goal is to find each pup a loving family committed to providing stable lifelong care. Because of this our application and adoption process may feel complex but please know that our goal is to make the best adoption choice for each pup.
Our application is thorough and will take you some time to complete. The questions are meant to allow our team to get to know you and for you to reflect as you undertake the life changing responsibilities of adding and caring for a new furry family member. Please be thoughtful as you read through and answer the questions on our application. You are applying to adopt a living, breathing, social creature who will need your time, patience, attention, training, and love to grow and thrive throughout her/his life. This companion will need regular exercise (which may look like 2-3 walks per day), consistent training (a few small sessions of 5-10 minutes per day), possibly professional training, canine enrichment, and socialization opportunities on a daily basis. If your life is completely booked or if you don't feel you have the time, energy, or finances to devote to providing for and training a puppy, now may not be the best time to apply.
