Q: What is the first step for someone to adopt one of your animals and what happens to the application after I fill it out?
A: It is always best to fill out an application first. We get many, many, many applications on the same dog and we donít always have time to call every person back. When an application is filled out, it is sent to the President, who then forwards it to the foster family of the dog in question. The foster family is to weed through the applications and make the calls to potential adopters. Because we all work and the numerous applications that we may get, the foster family may choose to only call back the applications that they feel are a good fit for the dog. I recommend checking our website and when you see the dog is not on the website anymore, it has been adopted
Q: Why are you so strict with your questions and placement of animals?
A: We are strict because we want the very best possible home for the animal and since we are no kill, we have the luxury of waiting until that home comes along. Just because we deny you doesnít mean you arenít a good home for an animal.
Q: What if I have a question about an animal and I want it answered before I fill out an application?
A: We are all VERY busy people and we all work and have our own animals and families to care for. What I recommend is to fill out the application, and if you do not get a call back, that is the answer to your question
Q: What if I leave a voicemail and I never get called back?
A: Sorry about that, some days are harder than others, just keep trying
Q: What if I send an e mail and donít get a response?
A: Please keep trying, the President of the rescue gets over 100 e mails per day and itís hard for her to get to all of them.
Q: How long do I have to wait until I can adopt a dog ?
A: Since all of our foster families work, and because of our process, once the application is reviewed and depending on where you live, it can take 2 weeks to get the animal. If the animal is not spayed or neutered, you will have to wait until that is done.
