Why should I adopt a dog?
Each year over 2.7 million adoptable dogs and cats are euthanized simply due to lack of space in area shelters or animal control facilities throughout the United States, and just as many are left to fend for themselves in other countries. That is why we encourage adopt don’t shop! There are so many loving and loyal animals waiting at shelters, in the streets, or like our landfill babies.
Adopting a pet is one of the most loving things you could do in your life, and in turn you are saving a life!
How do I adopt a pet?
To adopt one of our amazing landfill babies, you can fill out the application and we will set up a phone interview with you after receiving the completed application. Once that is complete we will team up with fellow rescues and rescuers in order to conduct a home check. After that is complete, our Adoption Director will look over all your information and contact you.
Are there any adoption requirements?
We do require personal as well as Vet references, an application, a phone interview and a home check before you would be approved to adopt one of our landfill babies. Additionally we do require that your current pets are up to date on vaccinations and are spayed/neutered unless a health condition prevents them from being spayed/neutered. We also require adequate fencing in order to adopt one of our dogs.
How to avoid picking the wrong pet?
We want both our dogs as well as your family to succeed in the adoption process. Our Adoption Director will help assist with making sure the pet you are inquiring about is a good fit for your family and lifestyle; as well as you are a good fit for the dog.
Each dog has their own wide variation of physical and personality characteristics. That is why it is very important to know everything you can about the dog that you are inquiring about, and we will make sure that happens.
We do ask that you do some self reflection when considering to adopt a dog. Ask yourself, how much time do you have in your life at the moment to bring in a new dog and assist with training? Can you financially afford another dog, basic vet care, all the way to any accidents or injuries? Always think it through and do not make an impulsive decision because dogs are a lifetime commitment.
Vet Q&A: Are pets for adoption healthy?
All of our dogs are fully vetted before they come to your home unless it is a puppy that is not of age to be spayed/neutered yet. In that case we do require a spay/neuter contract to be signed by your Vet stating that it was performed in a specific timeframe. You will receive all vaccination records we have on our dogs upon adopting one.
