Real Dog Rescue Adoption Application

Thank you for considering adopting a dog from Real Dog Rescue.
Please be aware that our fees for adoption are $350 for adult dogs and $450 for puppies under 1 year of age.  These fees help to defray the cost of spay/neuter, vaccines, fecal testing, preventatives and other medical needs.  You must be at least 21 years of age to submit an adoption application.
The adoption process is a multi-step process that includes vet and personal reference checks, home visits when applicable, and a willingness to work together to find a dog that is a great fit for you and your family. Our goal is not to put any dog in any home, but rather to put the best dog for YOU in your home.
Filling out this form is the first step, and we look forward to getting to know you. Please understand that Real Dog Rescue is run entirely by volunteers, so we thank you in advance for your patience. We ask that you be as accurate and truthful as possible in your responses, and remember there are no wrong answers. Now, let's get started.
