Matching deserving dogs with loving homes
There's nothing better than a successful match. We like to explain the process of finding the right rescue dog as being similar to online dating: You will want to check our site often to see who is new, read each bio and reach out if you think they might have found someone special.
Our adoption team is highly skilled at helping you find a dog with the right personality that will fit your family and lifestyle. Occasionally, we receive multiple promising applications for a dog and ultimately match the dog with the home where we think they will do best.
We are committed to helping you find a dog even if you don't "match" on your first attempt. We would love nothing more than to help you find the forever dog of your dreams.
Although we like to tailor each match, we do have some basic criteria we look with respect to adoptive homes:
Homes should be non-smoking
Have a fenced yard (some exceptions may be made in certain cases)
Ability to commit to yearly dentals and shots for the pet
Willing to purchase ramps and pet stairs to safeguard the dog's back
Not away from the home for long hours each day, a staggered family schedule or a willingness to employ a dog walker
Frequently asked questions
I work full time can I still adopt a pet from your organization?

How much are adoption fees?
Adoption fees range depending on the dog's age between $295-495. We realize this sounds like a lot, but is only a small fraction of what we spend ensuring each dog is healthy, up to date and cared for.
What happens if the dog I adopt isn't the right fit?
Occassionally, things don't work out and no one is to blame. In the event that things don't work out, we will match you with another dog that better suits your family and vice versa.
What does the adoption process involve?
The adoption process begins with an online application. After you have submitted an application, someone will be in touch with you within 48 hours. We may ask you additional follow-up questions and will tell you more about the dog you are interested in.
Do you adopt out to individuals who live in apartments?
Occassionaly we do adopt to individuals who live in apartments if the dog isn't a barker (which is rare but does happen) or is a senior.
