Adoption Application
Thank you for expressing an interest in providing a home for a rescued animal, and that you can accept full responsibility to provide housing, food, and both physical and mental care to such an animal.  We ask that you answer the following questions to determine the most suitable rescued animal for your situation and household.

Our adoption process includes an adoption application, a home visit, references checked, a donation fee and follow-up visits after adoption to insure that the terrier is in the right home with the right family.

We ask that you consider an older dog (6 years or more), or one that has more than the normal minor medical problems.  Please give this your vrey careful consideration.  Those who approach our rescue program because of a strong desire to help us save animals that might otherwise not be adopted, are indeed special on our book.
Saving the life of one dog isn't going to change the world,
but saving one dog's life will change the world for that dog.
