We only adopt out our dogs to qualified families or individuals. This means we won't adopt out to just anyone. We do a home check as well as a vet check. If you have a dog, that dog needs to be dog-friendly. We don't let people test out how well behaved their dog is wth our rescue dogs. We take the time and expense to fully vet our dogs, they are altered (spayed/fixed), up to date on shots and microchipped. They are also trained prior to being adopted (or can attend our weekly Saturday morning classes for training for free). We don't receive grants, almost 85% of the money spent on our rescue dogs come out of pocket, so we "vet" people who adopt from us very carefully.
