Adoption Policies

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!!!

If you are interested in adopting one of our dogs, please take a moment and download our adoption application and agreement so you are familiar with these documents as the adoption process progresses.

You may open both the application and agreement, fill in the information on your computer, save it to your documents, then attach it to an email to us. Or, after completing the application and agreement, in Acrobat Reader choose File, then Attach to Email. In the To field of your email, type ginny@pawsforlife.org.

You can also print the application, fill it out by hand, and fax it to us at (410) 885-5685, or bring the application to your appointment.

Our adoption fees are $150 – $200, which pays for spay/neuter and up-to-date vaccinations. We are only able to accept cash and checks.

Our goal is to find the right home for the right dog. So please feel free to contact us by email or phone with any questions.

Application and Agreement require Adobe Acrobat Reader, which can be downloaded here:
