Why should I
adopt a pet?
Adopting a shelter dog means bringing love into your house and heart! And a very big plus, by adopting one of our dogs you are in fact rescuing two. You see the place that became available after your adoption can be taken by another furry friend in need of our help.
Find out how to adopt a pet and what our guidelines are
How do I adopt a dog?
It all starts by browsing along our website and social media pages and you falling in love with one of our furry friends. Once you feel those butterflies swirling around you can reach out to us via our contact forms or on social media. We are very happy to answer your questions and guide you trough the next steps!
Are there any adoption requirements?
We take placement of the dogs in our care very seriously, therefore we do have requirements when it comes to the new home and family. Some of these requirements will be specifically for one or a couple of dogs, others are our guidelines in general.
Before we place a dog these are the steps we take to ensure a good fit:
– After you reach out we will send you a questionnaire to get to know you and you situation
– If the questionnaire is all good we will have an initial phone call with you
– A house visit will take place by one of our volunteers
– An adoption contract will be setup
– It’s time for you to welcome your new best friend!
How about the character information on your site?
Our staff and volunteers work day and night with the dogs and get to know them a little bit better every day. Based on what we see and experience we will give you a character description that is as accurate as possible. You should keep in mind however that a character can be completely different when circumstances change. Dog that we describe as energetic can become very calm, nervous can become ultimately relaxes, etc. But we do have years and years of experience and will use all of that experience to give you the absolute best information we can!
Vet Q&A: Are pets for adoption healthy?
When a dog arrives in our shelter we will do a blood test and veterinarian visit to get the base information about the specific dog. If we see changes during the time the dog is in the shelter we will most definitely repeat that process and you can of course request a blood test once you have decided to adopt one of our dogs. In that way we try to be as upfront and open as we possibly can!
