A. A dog is in a much better situation when it is placed with us, then if they were turned into a shelter or advertised in the paper. Dogs turned in to rescue are evaluated in a family situation. During this time, close communication is kept with the adoption coordinator. Information given to the adoption coordinator helps to pick the family that will best suit the needs of the dog.
Our adoption process is extremely thorough. Adopters go through a minimum three-step process before they adopt from us.
An adopter must fill out an on-line application, which is sent to our adoption coordinator. Our adoption coordinator then conducts a phone call interview with the prospective adopter. If they are approved (and many are not), then we arrange a home inspection. No dog in our system gets placed in a house before we have been there. Our adopters tend to be very serious about taking a dog into their home. We have a very low ratio of dogs returning into our system. However, when someone adopts from us, they are informed that if, for some reason, they cannot keep the dog, the dog MUST come back to us. We don’t want our dogs to end up in shelters. We will always take a dog back. We also do follow up calls after the adoption to make sure everything is going well.
