Adopting

Ready to welcome a new pup into your family:
Start Here

Thank you for choosing Pup Squad Animal Rescue! We work hard to find the perfect home for all of the animals in our care, and every adoption allows us save additional pups.

Adoption Process

  1. The first step is filling out an Adoption Application. You can either complete the application and submit it using the online form below (compatible with desktop browsers only- no mobile devices or tablets, yet) or download the form in either Microsoft Word or Adobe Acrobat. Save it to your computer, fill it out, and then email it to PupSquadAdoption@gmail.com
  2. After reviewing your application, we will be in touch to discuss specifics about your situation and the pup you’re interested in adopting.
  3. Next we can arrange a time for you to meet your prospective new family member.
  4. If, after meeting the pup in question, all parties agree to move forward, the next step is a sleepover. A sleepover typically lasts 3-5 days (although there is no minimum commitment) which gives everyone a chance to get to know each other. Is this the right puppy (or dog) for you, is now the correct time to add a new pup to your family, etc.
  5. If everything goes well with the sleepover and all  parties agree, you’ll sign the adoption contract and pay the adoption fee for your newest family member. The adoption fee is a $250 donation to Pup Squad. Pup Squad accepts cash and credit/debit cards for adoption fees.
