Adoption Application Process

Thank you for wanting to save one of our AMAZING dogs or cats!

Our application process must be completed prior to any pet leaving our care. Normally, it may take us up to 7-10 days to process. Approved applications are good for 6 months.  

***********  IMPORTANT COVID-19 UPDATE   ***********

Due to the incredibly high volume of adoption applications we have been receiving, application processing times are much longer than normal.  We kindly ask for your patience during these challenging times.

Please note that due to COVID-19, the volume of dogs being brought into our rescue is less than usual, and we receive multiple applications for each dog within minutes of being posted on our website.  It is very possible that a dog you see on our website today will no longer be available at the time of your application approval.


We are all VOLUNTEERS who work EVERY DAY to find our dogs and cats forever homes
