Before you Apply

Adopting is a very serious commitment that involves a lot of time, energy, patience and love. There is also a financial commitment to bringing a dog into your life and providing proper nutrition, animal care services such as grooming, day care, and veterinary care. Please consider this before applying

Prerequisite – Fencing

We require that our dogs have a safe and effective form of a containment system in place in their new home. This can be a physical fence, or an invisible fence. Dogs can even go to homes without a fence, but only if adequate exercise plans are place. Please note that each dog is different and requirements can vary from dog to dog. We will do our best to disclose this information in their bio.

We mandate any canines currently in an applicant’s home have proof of a heartworm test being done in the last 12 months and proof of heartworm preventative being given.
