If you would like to adopt one of our dogs, please fill out our Adoption Application. We always want to make sure that a dog and families are a good match for each other.
We check vet records and personal references.
Do home visits
And then a meet and greet with the dog, and the family and other pets, to make sure the placement is a good one for all concerned.
If you have owned a pet within the last five years, we will need contact information for your veterinarian, including the name and location of the practice and their telephone number.
We also require three personal references, one of which may be a family member.
Please note that our rescue is 100% foster-based. We do not have a shelter where you can walk in and visit. All of our dogs live in foster homes with private families throughout the state of CT. We therefore ask that you go through the application/approval process prior to a meet and greet, which is always part of placement. Once you are approved to adopt a dog from us, we bring the dog to your home for a meet and greet with all family members and other pets, to ensure that the placement is an appropriate one for everybody.
We will consider adopters throughout the New England states. We do not transport our dogs out of state, nor do we do long-distance adoptions. If you live in a New England state other than CT, you would need to be able to bring your entire family and all other pets to CT for a meet and greet after your application was approved, and to complete the adoption in CT if that went well.
Our adoption fee is $350.00. All of our dogs are spayed/neutered; up to date with vaccines; tested for heartworm, tick-borne illnesses and parasites; and all necessary medical treatment completed before the dog is cleared to be adopted.
