The information on this application is requested so that we may assist you in the selection of a new dog. The dog’s welfare is our foremost consideration. The consultation process is designed to help us determine if the adoption is in the dog’s best interest and to assist you in finding a dog most compatible with your lifestyle. Both you and the dog deserve our full consideration in this life-altering event and we want to take the time to process your application correctly, fairly, and thoroughly. If you have other dogs or children at home, we will ask you to schedule an appointment to bring them in to meet the new dog. Please note that we choose the best appropriate adopter in the best interest of the animal, so in some cases this does not mean the first application.
Many factors determine which applicant will be matched with a particular dog. If you are not approved for the dog that you applied for, it does not mean that you are not considered a good dog owner or that your home is not acceptable. Our goal is to place all our dogs into homes that will best
suit their individual needs.
