Adopt a Dog

View Dogs Available for Adoption

Wagging tails with tongue-lolling grins. Ready for a walk, a run, a nap, and playtime is anytime! Gentle love when you’re sad and joyous barks when you’re not. Protection from the scary nights and maybe a wild animal or two. Dogs offer a lifetime of adventure and so much more when they join your family.

Our adoption fee is $260 and includes:

  • Spay/neuter prior to finalizing adoption
  • Puppies under 6 month old are not ready for spay/neuter so they are available on a foster basis until over age 6 months
  • Temperament tested
  • Microchipped
  • Up to date on all vaccinations
  • Routine de-wormer with up-to-date flea / tick treatments
  • Adoption gift packet
  • 30 days of free pet insurance

Application Process

We strive to ensure that each animal goes to the home that best fits their needs and their personality.  For this reason, we ask that you allow 2-3 business days to review and process each application. A member of our staff will contact you as soon as possible after the review to let you know the status of the application. In certain circumstances, for example missing information or struggles contacting references, that an application may take longer than 2-3 business days. You’re welcome and encouraged to contact us regarding the status of your application.

There are times when, regardless of the approval of your application, another applicant may be selected to adopt the cat or kitten. All approved applications are kept on file for one year so even if that particular animal didn’t work to join your family, we will have your pre-approved application on file.

Please complete the application form in its entirety and email it to us at with the animal’s name and adoption application in the subject line of the email.  If you have any questions regarding the application, please contact us at 608-525-2300.
