ADOPTING A FRIEND
Canine Lifeline rescues dogs from high-kill county dog pounds/shelters. Almost all of our dogs were originally strays so we have no history on them nor do we know for sure if they are housetrained or what their house manners are like.
If you are interested in adopting a dog from us, the process starts by completing and submitting our application to firstname.lastname@example.org. The application can be downloaded below.
Your application will be reviewed along with any other applications we've received for a particular dog in order to find the best match for that dog. If your application is approved, we will arrange a meet with you at an upcoming adoption event.
We have adoption events every weekend and you are more than welcome to come visit us. Please note however that we do not do same day adoptions. You must have a pre-approved application in order to adopt a Canine Lifeline dog.
Prior to adoption, all Canine Lifeline dogs are spayed/neutered, microchipped, up-to-date on vaccinations including a one-year rabies, wormed, and on monthly heartworm preventative and flea and tick control.
As part of the adoption process, you will be given a two-week trial period. This trial period is intended to give you and the dog time to adjust to the new routine. Going into a new environment can be intimidating for a dog and it takes time for them to acclimate. We ask all adopters to commit to keeping the dog for the full two weeks.
The adoption fee for dogs from 6 months to 6 years of age is $200, puppies younger than 6 months old are $275, and seniors 7 years and over are $125. We accept payment in the form of cash or check only which is submitted at the time the trial period begins. If during the trial period you feel that it's not a good match, the dog may be returned to Canine Lifeline within the two-weeks for a refund of 1/2 of the adoption fee.

HELP THE DOGS
Canine Lifeline needs your help in many ways. The shelters are full and we are always in need of caring foster homes so that we can help even more dogs in danger of euthanasia. If you are interested in fostering a dog, please send an email to email@example.com.
Donations of dog food, treats, rawhide chews, blankets, towels, crates, collars/leashes, and Kuranda dog beds are always welcome. If you would like to donate any of these items, please contact us by email.
Many of the dogs that come to us from shelters require veterinary care prior to adoption. Some dogs are heartworm positive and require lifesaving heartworm treatment. Others have injuries that require surgery to repair or ear infections or hair loss that require a trip to the veterinarian. We also provide both heartworm and flea/tick preventative for dogs in our care. All monetary donations to help us help these dogs are greatly appreciated!
