How Our Adoptions work:

Thank you for your interest!

Take a look at our available pups to your right, depending on which kind of pet you’re interested in, make a note of a few different animals that stand out to you, and what is most important to you in a pet. From there, you can fill out the application at the bottom of this page, with which pets you’re interested in.

In addition to the pets that you’re interested in, we ask that you be open for other recommendations of pets to meet. Our Matchmakers know these dogs very well, and are dedicated to introducing you to pets that fit your lifestyle! Once you find the pet you’re ready to adopt, you’ll fill out any necessary remaining paperwork and chat through any education consults. If required, post-adoption instructions will be given to you during your adoption consult.


The Process:

Our Fee:

The adoption fee is $250 for puppies and $225 for dogs over one year old and covers vaccinations, de-wormer, microchip, spay/neuter and all dogs of age are tested for heart-worm and treated if positive; and all dogs are on monthly flea/tick, heart-worm preventative.

Step 1: If you have other pets, we’ll screen the application for a vet reference check regarding your current pets. 

Step 2: If the application is approved, (or if you do not have any other pets) we’ll set up a time to talk.

Step 3: Our process includes a home visit where we do a safety review of the property. If the decision is made to proceed with a home trial, we will collect the adoption fee and signed adoption contract. 

Step 4: At TSDP we always do a two-week trial. This provides a chance to make sure it’s a good fit for everyone involved. If at the end of the trial, the dog is a “keeper” then the adoption will be finalized and TSDP will cash the check.  

PLEASE KNOW: After the adoption is finalized; if something happens down the road and you’re unable to keep your TSDP dog then we require the dog be returned to us! We don’t want our pups to end up in a shelter or worse, being euthanized.

Adoption FAQs

Q. How do I adopt a pet? What instructions do I need to follow post-adoption?

A. Take a look at our Available Dogs above and make note of a few different animals that stand out to you. Then jot down what is most important to you in a pet. From there, fill out an application with which pets you’re interested in and your details.

In addition to the pets that you’re interested in, we ask that you be open for other recommendations of pets to meet. Our Matchmakers know these dogs very well, and are dedicated to introducing you to pets that fit your lifestyle! Once you find the pet you’re ready to adopt, you’ll fill out any necessary remaining paperwork and chat through any education consults. If required, post-adoption instructions will be given to you during your adoption consult.

Q. Has my new pet already been vaccinated?

A. Yes, your new pet will be current on all vaccinations at the time of adoption. From there, you will be responsible for keeping the dog up-to-date on vaccines.

 

Q. Has my new pet already been spayed/neutered?

A. Yes, in order to be eligible for adoptions our animals are always spayed or neutered prior to adoption.

Q. Can I adopt a pet before they are spayed/neutered?

A. You may complete the adoption process prior to your pet being spayed/neutered; this is called a pre-adoption. However, before we can legally transfer your pet to your ownership, your pet must be spayed or neutered.


Q.I found a pet that I want to adopt but am not sure if he/she will work out in my home with my other pets. Can I do a trial adoption?

A. Yes!! We always do a two-week trial. This provides a chance to make sure it’s a good fit for everyone involved. If at the end of the trial, the dog is a “keeper” then the adoption will be finalized and TSDP will cash the check.
