We strive to make the adoption process as simple and timely as possible. We do, however, want to make sure that our dogs are adopted into a home where they will spend the rest of their lives being loved and cared for.
Please note: if you have unaltered dogs (not spayed or neutered), an invisible fence or smoke in your home, we will be unable to place a dog with you.
We are only able to adopt our dogs within a 50 mile radius of the Twin Cities of Minneapolis/St. Paul, MN.
To adopt one of our dogs, you will need to complete the Adoption Application form below, including references. If our foster home determines your home may be a good fit for the dog, they will call your references, and if all is well, they will then schedule a home visit with you. We ask that all family members be present during the visit. Then we require a 24 hour thinking period, and if all are in agreement, the dog will then go to his/her forever home. During this process, we will do our best to keep you apprised of the progress.
