How to Adopt or Foster

 

FIRST STEP:
Please fill out our foster or adoption application, we will begin by calling your veterinarian (if you have one) so it’s helpful if you could let your vet know that you’re going to rescue a dog! Please ask him/her to give permission to speak with our representative. We will also call your references and will not accept family members as appropriate references.

SECOND STEP:
Talk to us! Our adoption counselor will call and tell us what you’re looking for, what would work best for your family, your lifestyle, your activities – we’re here to help you meet the best dog for you and your family!

THIRD STEP:
Gather everyone in the family, including your current dog, and we’ll either come to your location or you come to us to meet your new pooch! Please fill out the foster form if you’re interested in fostering:

RED DOG EVENTS:
We will send you an email once your application has been approved and let you know where you can meet the dog you’re interested in adopting.

ADOPTION EVENT REQUIREMENTS:
It’s important that ALL family members in the household where the dog would live be present at the event as well as your “resident” dog if you have one.

ADOPTION FEE:
Our adoption fee is $425.00 and is payable, in full, at the time of actual adoption. Our fee covers all of the vetting listed above as well as supplements, additional vet care, training, toys, bedding etc. If you have been approved for a dog to adopt please fill out our adoption contract with a Dog Days representative:

After the Adoption

A few weeks after the adoption and at your convenience a volunteer will visit your home to see how everyone is adjusting and answer any questions you may have about your new family member. Please remember that all of these dogs have come from high kill shelters or desperate living situations and it’s only in their best interest, and yours, that we confirm the adoption match was a good one. This is a great time to ask any training questions too!
