K9 Orphans, Inc. is a non profit all breed canine rescue that works with high kill shelters, homeless dogs, and owner surrender dogs to prevent euthanasia. Our dogs are placed into foster homes where loving, training, and any medical care can be provided to them while they wait for their forever homes. We have foster homes across Western NY. We also strive to educate the public about the importance of Spay/Neutering, basic obedience, and care of their canines.
The first step in the adoption process is either to submit an application or contact us to meet one of our pups. Applications are processed in the order they are received. We carefully review each application and place dogs based on a variety of criteria. Ultimately, we will always act in the best interest of the dog.
Please be patient! We are a volunteer organization – everyone has real jobs, families, and other commitments that sometimes take precedence.
The adoption process typically goes something like this:
Submit an application
Schedule a meet ‘n’ greet with the dog(s) you are interested in.
We call vet, landlord (if applicable) and personal references.
Schedule a home visit, preferably with all household members and animals present.
Sign adoption contract, pay adoption fee, and transfer the dog.
