Our Adoption Process:
First of all, thank you for choosing to adopt and for considering adding one of our wonderful rescue dogs as a new member of your family! We try to make our adoption process seamless as possible. All we ask is that you follow these steps:
- Fill out our adoption application found underneath the Adoption Tab. Once your application is approved, which usually takes a day or two, you will receive a response by e-mail or phone to set up a time for you to meet the dog you are interested in.
-If you rent, we will verify the landlord’s pet policy by contacting your landlord directly before you meet the dog.
-Please be aware that some towns or cities and home insurance agencies have a ban on certain breeds and limits to the number of animals you can own, please check these out before applying. Please click on the link below for a list of most of the bans in Wisconsin:
-Please be aware that some of our adoptable dogs are in foster homes that can be in the Madison, Baraboo, or Milwaukee area. If the dog you are interested in is located in a foster home please allow time to schedule a visit as our foster families work and have lives too.
- We ask that your current dog visit the dog you are interested in adopting, to meet and assure a good fit.
- We will introduce the dog you are interested in to a cat to assure that the dog can live peacefully with your resident cat or cats. If you are still unsure if your cat will get along with the dog you are interested in (because every animal is an individual) try a trial run.
- We strongly recommend taking a dog home for a week and just trying it, if it doesn’t work we take the dog back with open arms.
