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 are based in Chester, NJ.  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.

Adoption fee is $395.  All dogs are fully vetted by a licensed veterinarian;  spayed/neutered, micro-chipped and receive vaccinations: rabies - distemper - bordetella - Leptospirosis


Puppy (up to 6 months/Lg breeds up to 10 months) adoption fee: $425 -  age appropriate vaccines and spay/neuter

We will review your application within 3-5 days.  You may email to follow up on the status of your application.
