Why an Application?
Our goal is to match you with a dog that is compatible with your family and lifestyle. Choices for a long-term animal companion should not be made based solely on looks. The temperament and energy level of the dog in question must be taken into consideration.
If you have another animal companion, you must take the extra effort required to match the personality of your resident dog with the personality of the dog you are wishing to adopt. This compatible match takes time and research – one size does not fit all; dogs have very individual needs and personalities.
Type of Dog for You?
Please consider your energy level, time constraints and space while considering adoption. If you do not have the time to train a puppy, consider an adult dog. If you live in an apartment or do not have a fenced yard, consider the time required to provide adequate exercise for your dog. In snowy, sunny and rainy weather, your dog will still need exercise. If you have never had a dog, consider fostering before making a commitment to adopt.
Please answer all of the questions fully to prevent delays in processing your application. Please include area codes, zip codes and telephone number(s) of veterinarians. Please do not skip a question; if the question doesn’t apply to your situation, simply write “N/A.” Please answer every question on the application. If you do not, the application will not come to us for processing. To make sure your application has gone through, scroll down just past the “Send” button and make sure you see the green box that tells you it was sent successfully. You should hear back from someone within 2 business days. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions or don’t hear back.
Based on our experiences and the fact that same sex aggression is common in dogs, we prefer not to adopt to homes where a dog of the same sex currently lives. **Exceptions are made if we are comfortable with the match.**
Thank you for opening your home and heart to a rescued pit bull!
