Adoption Application Notice...

New Adoption Applications Accepted; However...

Since we reopened our adoption application on January 9th, we have received 151 new applications. A sum we did not expect! We are going to continue to accept new applications but we want you to understand that it could take up to two months before we are able to process your application.  The applications are being processed in order of submission. Please be patient. If you are applying for a dog that has been on the web site for quite some time, please let us know you're applying for that specific dog ([email protected]). If you are unable or unwilling to wait two months, we urge you not to apply since the adoption application fee is non-refundable.
