    APPLICATION UPDATE

    If you have or will be submitting an application to adopt, we ask that you be patient with us - as it could take a couple of months to complete the process and place a dogs in your home.  Although you may see new dogs posted on the website, those dogs will soon be meeting one of our families already approved for adoption and currently on our Wait List. 

    We would also ask that you respect the time commitment made by our volunteers to answer emails, make phone calls and complete home visits.  If you are not willing to wait for 2-3 months - please don't submit  an application.  If you are also working with another group, we would ask that you not submit an application to us until such time as you have withdrawn it from the other group.
