Application process: 1. When an application is submitted, you will receive a phone call for an initial interview. 2. We will check your vet records and/or personal references. 3. A home visit will be scheduled.
No one can speak for any dog until they are approved and spoken with the foster home. Both foster home and applicant must agree to the adoption. Our foster homes know the dogs and their needs best, therefore have the final decision as to who adopts their foster. We do NOT hold dogs for anyone. We have had people who were disappointed that they did not get the dog they initially applied for, but the ones who hung in there with us would not change a thing now that they have their A & B Dog.
Adoption fees: Senior dogs, ages 7+ years: $250.00 sliding down as age increases. Adult dogs, ages 1-6 years: $300.00 Puppies, up to 1 year: $325.0** **Beginning Aug. 1, 2015 our adoption fee for puppies will be $395.00. All other adoption fees stay the same.
We have made every attempt at keep our adoption fees low, despite the rising costs associated with spaying and neutering, immunizations and other routine care. In many cases, our adoption fee doesn't come close to the medical costs associated before an adoption takes place. We do feel however, that our adoption fee is still less than if the adopter had to pay these expenses out of their pocket.

Proof of Annual heart worm testing and proof of heart worm preventative must be available either through receipts or your vet's records for current and past dogs.
