Please read this in its entirety before submitting an application.
We are a private rescue and do not have a phone number or facility.
Out of respect for our volunteers, please do not try to call.
Everything you need to know to adopt will be found on this site.
Please see our Frequently Asked Questions page.
If you have questions, after reading everything carefully, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
You will be asked to pay the application fee once a preliminary review of your application is completed.
Once the application fee is paid, we do not work with other applicants for the dog.
If a listing does not say application received, we have not received
an application on the dog and you are welcome to apply.
We do have a $30 application fee.
This fee is applied to the adoption fee once you adopt.
Make sure you are ready to adopt and please do not submit an application
if you are not ready to take the dog home within a week.
Our approval process takes about that long, but once you are approved we expect you to meet the dog and make an adoption decision. If you are proceeding with adoption, you take the dog home the day you meet him//her. If needed, we do give you 24 hours to make your decision prior to making the dog available for adoption again.
Our dogs are coming from southern kill shelters. In most cases they are strays and if surrendered no name or information was left. We do not know their "stories", where they came from or background health history. Their new lives start when we take possession of them.
We do require obedience classes be taken by all our adopters.
You must be 24 years of age or older and live in WI, IL and southern MN to adopt.
We do not adopt to families with children under the age of six, as this is an insurance regulation.
We created our policies. Please do not ask for us to waive them.
Please know that we are an adoption and not a sales agency. This means that we reserve the right to ask questions of our adopters and approve them based on the information provided to make the best lifelong matches for our dogs.
