Before you succumb to falling in love with a puppy or dog, ask yourself the following question: Do I really want a dog and all the responsibilities that come with having one? The reality is that adopting a dog or puppy requires a 10-15 year commitment on your part and you need to know if you are ready for that commitment. If you have made the decision to have a new dog or puppy for yourself or family, we will work with you to find a dog whose requirements match your life-style, expectations, experience, and needs. We will offer training resources to help you in the transition period of having a new dog/puppy in your home.
The dogs and puppies that come into our adoption program have either been abandoned, picked-up as strays but no owner found, or have been given up because their owner no longer can or will care for them. Sheltered dogs are loving animals that may not have been provided the training or care necessary by their previous guardians to make them an easy pet to live with. Because of this, all of our dogs temporarily live in homes with foster care providers until adopted. The foster care provider helps assess the dogís training, needs, and personality and then works with it to make the dog more adoptable.
The adoption process for each dog usually occurs over a few days while coordinating schedules for all parties. We do our best to expedite the process effectively and efficiently, and we ask your patience and understanding. A Caring Place Humane Society reserves the right to approve or deny any application based on this organizationís adoption criteria as well as the presumed needs of the dog or puppy determined by this humane society for which the applicant has applied. Completion of this application does not guarantee an approval for adoption, nor does it place a hold on any animal.
