We have been fortunate to receive many puppies over the last year and they seem to keep coming.  If you are interested in adopting a puppy, please fill out an application to get the process started.  You would then be put on the wait list to be considered for future puppies we receive.  A puppy is a lot of work, but definitely rewarding!

To adopt a puppy, you will need to be able to do the following:

  • A puppy has a small bladder, so depending on the age of the puppy, they need to be let out every few hours.  You would need to have the ability to give a puppy frequent potty breaks throughout the day.
  • A puppy also needs to go to positive reinforcement obedience classes to start off right with manners and socialization.  You would need to commit to taking a puppy to at least two series of positive reinforcement obedience classes.

So, if you are a good fit for a puppy, we would love to have you welcome one into your family.

If interested please fill out our online adoption application form; please make sure you fill in every required field/question or your submission will not go through. Please note that we take time to learn as much as we can about each dog in our care and our bios are our current observations; we are unable to make any guarantees on the future health or temperament of your adopted dog. Most dogs in our care come with unknown pre-rescue history and as such breed and age estimates are an educated guess.
