Adoption Process

Submit an application if you are ready to adopt or ask us a question about a pet that wasn't answered in their profile.

We require a home visit and place dogs only within 60 minutes from our home base in Chester, NJ.

You do not have to name a specific dog or cat at the time you submit your application.

​If you apply for a specific dog, we cannot promise he/she will be available or a good fit for your family at the time of your approval; but rest assured we will work diligently with you to find an amazing dog that is 'PERFECT' for you.

Adult dog adoption fee: $400, Seniors  8 yrs older $215.  All dogs are FULLY vetted by a licensed veterinarian;  spayed/neutered, micro-chipped and receive vaccinations: rabies - distemper - bordetella - Leptospirosis


Puppy adoption fee: $430 (up to 6 months/Lg breeds up to 10 months)  -  age appropriate vaccines and spay/neuter

As a very small rescue we do our best to review your application within 3-5 days..  You may email to follow up on the status of your application.
