We are committed to matching the right dog to the right family so everyone will have many happy years together. Our adoption process includes the completion of an application, phone/home interview with our Adoption Coordinator, veterinary reference, phone interview with your dog's Foster Mom, adoption fees and contract.
The application is the first step in the process, and the fastest way to begin the process is to submit your completed adoption application. The adoption fee also helps to defray our expenses for their food, veterinary care, health certificate and other associated costs. All our dogs and puppies are transported from Alabama or Mississippi to New England via ground transport using a private transport, All Paws Transport Service.
The total adoption fees vary per dog, each dog's adoption fee is posted on their petfinder profile, they vary depending on the extent of vet care needed. Many adult dogs need heartworm treatment, some need surgeries and others need various vet treatments before being ready to be adopted.
All the rescued dogs/puppies originally come from southern rescue/foster homes and will come to New England when they are adopted or we have space in a New England foster home for some of them. Therefore, many of our adoptions are long-distance and sight-unseen. We carefully screen the dogs and the applicants to insure a good match and a successful adoption. You will receive extensive information about your dog, including a comprehensive phone conference with his/her foster mom if you would like to call. If a puppy or dog makes it to the New England foster home before being adopted you will be able to meet him/her first before making a decision!
