Application review—We'll likely reach out with additional questions or documentation.
Meet and greet—Once we've approved your application for adoption, we'll coordinate with you to set up an in-person meeting with the current foster.
Fees and paperwork—After a successful meeting, if you decide to adopt we'll collect the adoption fee and send you adoption agreements to sign.
All set!—Once all of the payment and paperwork is settled, you'll coordinate with the foster to pick up your new best friend.
Where do you adopt to?
We adopt our dogs to homes throughout Colorado and Michigan. We are not accepting applications in other states at this time.
What are the adoption fees? What do they cover?
Our adoption fees range from $450-$550 which typically covers transport to Colorado, spay/neuter, microchip, deworming, and up to date vaccinations at time of adoption. These services are only covered at our vet partner's office.
Please keep in mind that we expend whatever funds necessary (without state funding) to provide veterinary care to bring the dogs back to a healthy & happy state and that these adoption fees rarely cover all of our costs.
Where are you located? How can I meet a dog I'm interested in?
We don't have a facility—our rescue is foster-based, meaning all dogs are placed in foster homes when they come to us.
Once your adoption application is approved, we'll coordinate with you to set up a meet and greet. In order to protect the time of our volunteer fosters, we require application and approval before meeting our pups.
Do you host adoption events?
We prioritize the well-being of our fosters and the dogs in our care. As a result, we have chosen not to host adoption events.
Why do you only adopt to Michigan and Colorado?
As a rescue organization, we are committed to the safety and lifelong well-being of our dogs. We have made the decision to focus our adoption efforts only within the states of Michigan and Colorado. By doing so, we can ensure close proximity to our base of operations and network of support resources—including dedicated fosters and volunteers, trusted veterinarians, and experienced trainers. This localized approach enables us to provide ongoing assistance to our rescue dogs and their adopters, ensuring the best possible outcomes for our beloved canine companions.
