Why Should I

Adopt a Dog?

When you adopt, you are doing far more than you know. By saving just
one dog, you free up a foster home for another rescue. This, in turn,
saves the life of one more shelter animal, allowing another high-risk
dog a place of welcome refuge.


Adoption Fees Range Widely: below are some general guidelines


- Adult Dogs -  starting at $350

- Puppies - starting at $550

- Sponsored, donation, or price matched dogs offer lower costs opportunities

-Please read the profile for more fee information


Our adoption fees vary based on various factors such as the dog's age, size, etc. 

Adoption Information

Ready to adopt your newest family member?  Let's get started! 
Our goal is to make a match between your family and the perfect dog. We want happy dogs and happy humans, living together and loving each other in a “forever home.”
We recognize that each family has different needs and we will work with you to match the personality of the dog with your needs, so that you get the right dog. Our application may seem extensive, but don’t let that discourage you in any way. It is not a test! We are simply doing our best to find the right match for you.
