The Dogs

The dogs you see on our Available Furry Friends page, are living in our homes as loved members of our families. They beg at the table at meals, sleep in our beds, snuggle in our laps while we watch TV, go for rides in the car, chase the mop, and happily celebrate our return home, even after just taking out the garbage!!! We are not a shelter. We keep the foster dogs in our homes and give them lots of TLC. During this time, we evaluate the dog’s temperament, socialization and health. We want the best possible match for the dog and the adopting human.

Forgive us if we seem to be intrusive when you apply to adopt a dog. We are extremely picky in choosing homes for our little ones. Once they become foster members of our family, we treat them as we do our own pets. We want our foster dogs to go to the home that best suits them. Although we don’t always have a history on the dog’s past or know how it got to the shelter, we do have a sense of its character and needs.

If you see a little one that you’d like to adopt, please fill out an adoption application. We get quite a few applications, so please be patient with us as we are all volunteers and work full-time jobs. We do get back to each and every person.

If we feel that you would be a good match for one of our little ones, we will phone or email you and make an appointment for a home visit. We generally do not adopt our little ones to families with children under the age of 6 years old.

For more information about our adoption process, please go to our adoption process page.

We have Adoption Events each weekend. Visit our Event’s Calendar for times and places.
