If you’re interested in meeting one of our dogs, please complete the adoption application and email it back to [email protected]

Don’t worry about the last 3 pages of the contract at this time as those require signature and are done at the adoption, but please do read them in case you have questions.

Once we receive your application, we will review it and set up a time for you to meet the pet you are interested in adopting. If it’s a match we will coordinate a home visit with you. During the home visit we typically introduce other pets to the new member of the family, but we can also do that at the first meeting per your request. At the time of the home visit, assuming all goes well we would leave the dog with you for a one-week trial period and the adoption will be finalized at the conclusion of that week.

Lucky Dog Rescue does home visits for each adoption.Our adoption fee is $175 and all dogs are fully vetted, spayed or neutered and micro-chipped.

How long does the adoption process take? Typically from receipt of adoption application to home visit no longer than one week, but often just a matter of days.
