Congratulations on making the decision to adopt a new furry friend into your family!  For many people, just making this decision is a big step.  We want you to know that we will help you through the entire process, from finding the perfect match to answering any questions you may have after you have brought your new family member home.

The first step is to fill out an application (click here for our application: LHR application). Send us an email to, if you are interested in one of our furbabies, along with the completed application. Once we have received your application, someone will contact you within a couple of days.  Please keep in mind that we are run completely through volunteers, most of which have full time jobs.  We know you are excited (we are too!), but sometimes we just can’t immediately respond, even though we wish we could. We PROMISE to get back to you within 72 hours!

Once you have been approved, we will arrange a time for you to meet the dog as well as for us to do a home inspection.  Please understand that we are very dedicated to our dogs and their safety and comfort comes first and foremost, which is why we do the home visit.  Don’t worry, we aren’t concerned with your decorating taste!! We just want to know that we are sending our dog somewhere he/she will be safe and comfortable.  As you can imagine, we fall in love with ALL of our dogs!

After the home inspection and the meet & greet, as long as everyone is happy and wants to move forward, we arrange to bring the dog to you.  Please be prepared to pay the $125 adoption fee at that time. (Check is preferred, though cash is accepted as well.) If you already have a pet (or two or three) we will help you introduce your new dog to the rest of the family.

Ready to adopt?? Fill out the application, and email us at We look forward to meeting you!!
