As of 6/15/09 we NO LONGER adopt to families who have children 6 and under.
PLEASE SERIOUSLY CONSIDER YOUR LIFETIME COMMITMENT TO A DOG before adopting or buying any dog. Especially if you are planning to have a child within the next 5 years, because “having a baby” is the number one reason for giving up a family dog. All dogs come with individual differences and some may not easily adjust to life with a small child. However, these dogs also deserve a LIFETIME commitment from their people. If you may be planning to have a child, will you also honor your lifetime commitment to your dog? Or will your dog no longer be important enough to work through the bumps and challenges of life with a child?
We DO NOT have a shelter so please follow the steps below.
You must complete an adoption application before we will consider you for one of our dogs. After your adoption application has been approved then we can begin to discuss some possible matches. Keep in mind it is possible that the dog you apply for could be adopted by the time you finish your application process. However we have many dogs available and we are sure another one will be a good match. We will hold your app on file until you find your match. Our minimum adoption fee is $50 for seniors 10yrs and up, $125 for seniors 7-10yrs, $250 for adults, and for purebred puppies $350(7 months and under). Cash or check only. There is a two-week trial period where your adoption fee is refundable and the dog must come back to us, should you discover this dog is not the dog for you. After the two-week trial period, should you discover that the dog is not the dog for you, he/she still should come back to us, but we are sorry to say, that your adoption fee is no longer refunded. We will have used that money toward the care of the next dog. We hope that you will understand. One exception is that we cannot take back a dog that has bitten. Below is a more detailed summary of our process.
The beginning process is the same for the “Plus” dogs and the fee is the same. For some purebreds the fee may be higher.
