Adoption Process

Complete an online adoption application which will be reviewed and approved if you meet all our requirements. You will be emailed with the status of your approval and the app will be shared with the foster parent of the dog you indicated interest in.

All of our adoptable dogs are NOT adopted on a first come, first serve basis. We receives many more applications from potential adopters than we have bostons.

Foster parents will review all applications and conduct a phone interview with those applicants that are a possible opportunity based on what the dog's needs as stated in the online profile. The requirements for each dog are NOT negotiable.  Not all applicants are interviewed.  Once the dog is committed to a family all applicants will be emailed with the new status of the dog of interest.

Once the perfect match is made the adopting family will have a required homevisit completed which includes a volunteer conducting a walk through of the home OR request of photos and videos, references called and transportation scheduled.  Each adoption has a two week trial period, adoption contract and adoption fee.

PENDING: If "pending" appears after the dog’s name, the dog is currently committed to another family, and new applications will not be considered for this dog.

HALTED: If “halted” appears after the dog’s name, we received an overwhelming response and NO LONGER considering new applications for this dog.
