Begin by filling out an adoption application for the dog you wish to adopt, available on each dog's page or below. Please be thorough and truthful with your answers - any false or negative information may disqualify you for adoption.
Once your adoption application has been received, selected applicants (not every applicant) will be contacted by one of our team members for a phone screening. This is an opportunity to go over your adoption application and discuss the Almost Home Canine Rescue process.
MEET THE DOG
If you meet the preliminary screening criteria, we will arrange a time and date for you to meet the dog at our rescue.
If the decision is made that the dog and your family are a good match, arrangements will be made for a home check. The purpose is to look at safety aspects, escape routes and home environment. We are looking for dog-friendly and dog-safe homes.
TIME TO THINK
There is a mandatory 24-hour cooling off period after the home check to give you and the team member time to determine whether the dog would be a good fit in your home. This is a good time to talk about this decision with the entire family.
If both you and the team member agree to move forward with the adoption, arrangements will be made to finalize it. You will be asked to sign an adoption contract.
At this time, you will also be asked to pay the adoption fee. All Almost Home Canine Rescue dogs are required to be spayed/neutered (age dependent). For any covered by AHCR they will be scheduled as soon as we can get an appointment with our vet (there are delays due to Covid restrictions). The adoption fee covers their first vaccination, deworming, and any other treatments and tests medically required prior to adoption. More details regarding spay and neuter are provided in the adoption contract.
Almost Home Canine Rescue is dedicated to providing each dog with the utmost
level of care and medical attention they require.
Adoption fees are $700.
All of our puppies/dogs are given up-to-date shots/vaccinations, are required to be spayed/neutered once they are of age, and receive a tattoo.
