Adopt

Applying for a dog
  1. Complete an adoption application.
  2. Once your application is initially reviewed, we contact your veterinarian and references.  After that,  a H.E.L.P. volunteer will contact you. Please be patient, this does take some time especially over a weekend.   Please allow from  24 - 72 hours for us to make contact with you.
  3. Approved adopters will be put in touch with the foster home to schedule an appointment to meet the dog/puppy.
  4. All members of the family must be present in order to adopt. We want to make sure it’s a good fit for everyone! If you already have a dog, we ask that you bring him/her to meet the foster dog too.
  • Puppies 12 months and younger are $300. Adult Dogs over 12 months and younger than 6 years old are $250. Senior Dogs over 6 years are $100.
  • The foster home has final approval of adoption.
