Adoption Policies

Want to adopt a dog?

We realize that good, loving homes come in all shapes and sizes--- just like our dogs! "Pets-OK" apartments and condos, houses, farms, city, country or in between -- are all acceptable depending on the individual dog.

We prefer that our dogs have indoor homes with regular supervised outdoor time. Regular routine veterinary care is required, as well as a proper diet and lots of love and attention.

If-- AT ANY TIME OR FOR ANY REASON-- you can no longer to care for your adopted Paws for Life pooch, you MUST return him/her to us IMMEDIATELY!!!
