Thank you for applying!
Please note that we do not give priority to applications on a first-come, first-served basis. We consider all applications individually and base approval on the best match for the dog. Just as we wish for all dogs to be viewed as individuals, we view all applicants as individuals so we have no restrictions based on fenced yards or length of time at residence.
That said, many of our dogs are of special needs and have more complex requirements than the average dog. We do our best to follow up with every applicant, but if you don’t receive a response it’s likely because none of our dogs are a good match for your home, and not because your application is “rejected”. Please feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org to follow up at any point, or apply for another pup again in the future if you’re not able to find a dog with another great local organization.
