How to Adopt

EVERYONE interested in adopting any pet is required to fill out and submit an application. This can only be done after we have stated the puppy/dog is adoptable. miltonThis is non-negotiable. Refer to the “Adoptable Pets” tab in the menu to see what pets are currently ready to go to their forever homes.  We have a newly developed electronic application form that allows you to conveniently apply online! You can go to that page fill out all the required information and hit submit. An e-mail will then be sent to the rescue. Make sure to answer each field fully and accurately.

It is important to note that applications are not done on a first come first serve basis. We will pick the best home for our dogs. We have the right to deny an application for any reason.

Along with the application there is a vet check, meet and greet (only with an approved application ), and finally a home check. If you are uncomfortable with any of these stipulations please do not apply as they are non-negotiable as well.

We will travel no more than 4 hours one way for a home check. Home checks will be conducted by other HHWH approved rescues, for adopters outside of out driving range. Furthermore, we will NOT ship our dogs. If you are more than a 4 hour drive you must make arrangements to pick the dog up personally. You should be prepared to bring your family plus your personal dogs with you as we need to be sure everyone is comfortable.
