The adoption process..

All of our adoptable animals are listed below, and each one of our rescues are wonderful, loving and unique in their own way. To help you find the perfect match for your furever pet, we try to include as much detail as possible and post descriptive icons next to each animal that represent more common traits our adopters look for. If you are interested in adopting any of our rescue's, please fill out an adoption application and we will be in contact with you shortly.

We specifically look for the home that is the best fit for each individual companion animal. We do not operate on a first-come, first-serve basis.   The requirements for each adoptable will vary;  some dogs will not do well with children while others would thrive with them;   some are flight risks that would require a fenced property while others are "velcro" dogs that will never leave your side, etc.   Outside the specific needs of any particular companion animal, there are some basic requirements that apply to all potential adopters: ​

  1.  All residents of the homes must be aware and agree to the commitment of a new companion animal. 
  2. The owner of the property in which your new companion will reside is aware and in favor of a new animal on the property. 
  3. All children residing in the home must be of age 5 or greater.   
  4. Adopter must be financially able to provide for all the needs of your new companion.
  5.  And most of all, adopter must adore, love and cherish their new companion! :-) 

We do NOT discriminate on race, ethnicity, age, financial income, etc.   Each dog has its own specific needs and our ultimate goal is a happy, loving, ending for both the furever family and the companion animal looking for a home. 

The process begins with an adoption application.   The submission of your application does not obligate you to adopt nor does it guarantee an adoption. 

  • The best possible match out of the applications received for any specific adoptable is then processed (references are called, current veterinarian is contacted to ensure your current animals are up to date on vaccinations and altered).  If renting, landlord is called to validate allowance of a new pet and any restrictions. You will be contacted with any questions. 

Upon application approval, the foster mommy/daddy will perform a home visit to ensure a proper match, safety, and compatibility with the resident animals. 

If a compatible match is confirmed by both the potential adopter and Dogs Unlimited volunteer,  and no other applicants require a home visit for your particular adoptable, then an official adoption can take place at the time of the home visit or other arrangements can be made as desired.
