Adoption Processs

We require that you become an approved adopter before setting up a meet and greet! Becoming approved does not mean you are committed to that dog and it also does not mean you are first in line for that dog.

Step One: Fill out the application on our website

Step Two: Email us a virtual tour of your home.

Step Three: We will contact your vet, references and landlord, so make sure you give them permission to speak with us.

Step Four: If we determine that your house is a good fit we will contact you to set up a meet and greet.

Step Five: Meet your pup and take them home if we all feel it's a good match!
