FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

  • Do I need pre-approval to make an appointment to visit dogs at the rescue?
    Yes, appointments to meet adoptable dogs are limited to pre-approved adopters, so fill out an application!​​

  • How long are approved applications valid for?
    Once you become an approved adopter, you have one year to adopt a dog before you need to re-apply.

  • If I see a dog on the website that I like, will you hold it for us until we get there?
    We do not "hold " dogs for anyone, as it can result in a dog missing an opportunity to find their forever home.

  • Can I bring my current dog(s) to the rescue?
    Yes. We require you bring any current dogs (and human members of your household) if you plan on adopting a dog.

  • Can I take a dog home that same day as my appointment?
    Definitely! On rare occasions, your new dog may not be altered (spayed/neutered) when you meet them, in which case you'd have to wait to take the dog home until after altering, which usually happens within one week.
