Getting a new puppy or dog is an exciting moment in a person’s life. Dogs have become part of our daily life and family, and PAWS is dedicated to helping pets stay in their forever homes.
To begin the adoption process, please download and complete the adoption application.
A submitted application can take 7-14 days, depending on how many applicants are applying and the availability of help from our volunteers. After receiving your application, an Adoption Coordinator will contact you via phone to discuss your application and decide if you and the dog are a good fit.
We want to ensure our dogs are adopted into a home that matches their needs. Therefore, in some situations, an applicant’s request to adopt a specific dog does not match their lifestyle, and we will recommend a better-suited dog that fits the applicant’s lifestyle.
Once your application has been approved, we arrange to meet with you and any other family members (including other pets) before moving on to the final adoption contract.
The last step is completing the final adoption contract and paying the adoption fees. Once complete, you are ready to take your new family member home!
Please note puppies adopted under six months will have an appointment booked at one of our partnered vets before finalizing the adoption.
