Adoption Policy

First and foremost we are looking for permanent, responsible homes for our rescues. Too many dogs die each year because irresponsible owners neglect them, let them breed, or just decide they no longer want them. Please consider the time and money required to be a responsible pet owner.  It’s a lifetime commitment and nothing less is acceptable.
