Frequently Asked Questions

Where are you located?
We do not have a physical location or shelter. All of our animals stay in foster homes until they are adopted.
How can I meet an animal?
Most of our animals are in private foster homes. In order to meet them, you must be an approved adopter. Some of animals can be seen at local businesses. When that is the case, it is noted on their Petfinder profile.
I see an animal on your Petfinder site that I would like to adopt. Are they available?
We update our Petfinder site frequently. All of the animals that are on our Petfinder site are still available for adoption.
I want to adopt. What do I do now?

 

If you’re interested in adopting, the first thing you need to do is fill out an Adoption Application online.

 

What is involved in adopting?
Once we get your application, we’ll call your references and a volunteer will call you to schedule a home visit. The home visit is a chance for us to meet you, make sure that you’re going to provide one of our animals with a loving home and allows us match you with the perfect pet!
Why do I have to give you references, my veterinarian information and why must you come to my home?
Most of the animals that are in our rescue were scheduled to be euthanized. We want to ensure that they are never abandoned again. Having a thorough adoption process helps us to do that.
I want one of your animals, but I don't want you to spay or neuter it.
Then you’ve come to the wrong place. All of our animals are spayed or neutered before going to their forever homes. Why? Because there are so many unwanted animals out there and we don’t want to add to that unwanted population

Our standard adoption fee for dogs is $150.00. This includes the spay/neuter, 4-in-1 general vaccination, rabies vaccination, microchip and a heartworm test.
