ADOPT A DOG

Our process

We have a process to help ensure our pups go to the right homes for them.

If you are interested in adopting a dog from us, please click on their profile to find out more. 

 

  • You will need to complete an Expression of Interest Form. We do NOT accept applications via text, Facebook or phone. 

  • If you are the successful applicant, we will be in touch to arrange a property inspection and a meet and greet to ensure it's the right fit for you and your family as well as for the dog.

  • If that all goes well, then you can take the dog on a two-week trial period.
