Due to lack of manpower and solely being supported by volunteers, we cannot pick up the phone and call each and every person that inquires about one of our rescues.
We are not a facility. All of our rescues are fostered by volunteers in their private dwellings, therefore all interested parties must be pre-approved for adoption to meet one of our said rescues.
You must be 21 yrs of age to adopt living in a stable environment
*FENCED YARDS ARE REQUIRED* ~ NO exceptions unless the said rescue is a fence climber and cannot be contained. We DO NOT support the use of underground fencing as they are a false sense of security and do not keep predators out!
We do not adopt to families with children under the age of 8 yrs old unless we have history on the said rescue having been raised or lived with children without incident as we have no foster homes that can evaluate these dogs co-existng with younger children/toddlers on a daily basis.
We do out-of-state- adoptions. It is the sole responsibility of the potential adopter to travel here to meet/greet the said rescue. You must get pre-approved for adoption prior to the Meet & Greet. This process allows you to adopt at the same time of the Meet & Greet so that only one trip has to be made. We DO NOT ship/transport to new furever homes!
