Adoption Guidelines

The Adoption Process

The process starts with a detailed application process. The application can be found on our website.  All of our dogs are in foster homes so applications are required before meet and greets. Next there will be reference checks and possible home visits to make sure that you and the dog are a good fit. No your home does not have to be beautiful, just a safe environment for the dog.  The final steps are the signed adoption contract, and payment any applicable adoption fee.

All dogs are spayed or neutered prior to adoption if over the age of 6 months (younger if it was done prior to coming into rescue). They are up-to-date on all shots for their age. And, they have been temperament tested, basic training (this excludes puppies) but our foster will try their best.

When you adopt a rescue dog, that they do not always come perfect or fully trained. Also please understand that it can take 2 weeks or more for the dog to settle into its new environment. Please be prepared to be patient. Also, we recommend  that all adopters commit to some obedience training for their new dog. We will be happy to provide you with a referral to our trainer

By submitting an application, you are committing to properly care for the dog for as long as they live, which can be up to 15 years.  Thank you for opening your heart and home to a homeless pitty.
If you are interested in adopting, please fill out an application under the application tab on our main page. We will not respond to inquiries with out an application.

    Hi! Before I fill out an application- I wanted to mention that I reside in New Jersey. I doubt you deliver the dogs- and I am willing to drive to pick up, but was curious if I had other options? I wasn’t sure how to contact you directly- all the links take me back to the main site.
    Thank you!

    our e-mail address is we do not transport so you would have to be able to meet/pick up the dog in their foster home in NY or CT

Please say a prayer for Ice.
On 3-3-12 he was killed tragically, in a case of mistaken identity. We will never forget him. RIP beautiful boy.
