What Is The Process To Adopt A Dog?

We emphasize matching the right dog to the right family so that all will have many happy years together. Completing and submitting the adoption application is the first step and the fastest way to begin the adoption process. You must be 24 or older and living in New England to complete and submit an application.

Additional steps include:

  • phone interview
  • veterinary & personal references check
  • home visit
  • adoption fee
  • adoption contract (can be previewed on our website)
