New Adoption Program

As many of you know, rescue is hard – and expensive!

In an effort to place as many dogs as possible, we have changed our adoption process. We now fundraise before we pull to cover the costs associated with taking the dogs in. Typically, this covers their bail, expected vet costs, and grooming. Additionally, we must secure foster homes for the dogs before we can commit to pull them. This is a way for us to keep costs in check and continue our mission to save as many dogs as we can.

Even though we are a 501(c)3 nonprofit corporation, we still have to pay for vet care, grooming, food, etc. for each of our rescues. The main shelter we pull from doesn’t always have the ability to get the dogs the medical care they need. For these dogs, we need to raise funds to cover the expenses we pay for spay/neuters, shots, deworming, and microchipping, to name a few. Other shelters have reduced fees and in those cases, the bail money will be less.

If you’d like to be involved as a foster, please fill out a foster application. Fosters are able to adopt the dog they are fostering. If you’d like to pay bail for an upcoming dog, you can donate here.

Once the dogs are ready to be adopted, we request that new adopters pay it forward with a donation to cover the next dog’s bail money.
