Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Do you adopt out of state?
A: Yes, we do. But we do not ship dogs. Here are the steps:
2. Phone interview
3. Virtual home check
We do require you and your family to come to us (with resident pets) to meet the animal…unless we are doing a transport to that area already, then we come to you. For out of state adoptions, it is a 30-day trial run. If the adoption does not work, we require the family to drive the animal back to us. There is no shipping or using a third-party service.
Q: How long do people typically foster for?
A: That’s a tough question to answer because each case is different. Some dogs get adopted fairly quickly, while others take a little more time.
We do require a minimum two-month commitment with at least a 30-day notice of the day you are unable to foster any longer.
Q: What does rotating crates mean?
A: Rotating crates simply means that the foster dog is kept separate from resident dog until a proper dog intro is done. If you cannot supervise your resident dog and foster dog, foster dogs must be in their crate. Your resident dog does not need to be crate trained.
Q: I need to rehome my dog. Can you take them into your rescue?
A: Unfortunately, we are currently closed to owner surrenders. Shelters are overcrowded and are euthanizing dogs daily, so that is where we currently focus our efforts.
Whatever the reason may be that you are looking to rehome your animal, please know that there are always ways to make it work like:
Keeping dogs separated by crate training.
Hiring a trainer.
Getting your animal(s) fixed.
Creating boundaries between the animal and your children.
Hiring a dog walker or place them in doggie daycare.
Q: I just found a stray animal. What do I do? Can you take it?
A: Every city and county have their own set of laws regarding stray animals. Since animals are considered property, we believe there is a stray hold on an animal prior to rehoming. There’s no such thing as “finders’ keepers”. Please contact your local municipality for next steps in your area.
Q: I would like to meet/adopt one of your dogs. What are the next steps?
A: Visit our Adopt page to learn more.
