Check out all of our adoptable dogs over on the Adoptable Dogs tab! We won't be having adoption events for a while, but if you see a dog who could be a good match for you, we are happy to set up a private meet and greet! Just send us an email at email@example.com to fill out an application and get the ball rolling.
Head over to our Adoptable Dogs tab to read more about these pups! If you think one of them could be a good match for you, send us an email to request an application. firstname.lastname@example.org
For the time being, we will not be holding public adoption events/gatherings, but will resume adoption fairs when it is deemed safe to do so. In the meantime, we are happy to set up private meet-and-greets for the dogs with an approved application.
Sorry to say, the rescue is on hold at this time. Due to the current COVID-19 situation, we are not scheduling meet-and-greets or home visits for any of our adoptable dogs. We are also not meeting with people for intake evaluations or bringing new dogs into our program at this time. Most of our volunteer fosters live in and around Forsyth County and are under "Stay at Home" orders. When it is safe to do so, we will resume normal activities and will happily schedule times for people to meet our adoptable dogs. In the meantime, a couple of things to think about: We know this seems like a great time to adopt due to many of us being home more. If you are seeking to adopt or have recently adopted, please make sure you think through your plan for after-quarantine life. When you resume "regular" life and work, will you still have time for your pet? Are you training with them while you are home? Are you prepping them by crating or leaving them in a different room for periods of time so that they don't form abnormal attachment issues? This could later lead to separation issues when you aren't home as much. If you do feel that this is the right time for you to adopt, check our your local county shelter or humane society. These organizations are still overflowing with animals. And they have a better space for industrial cleaning as well as social distancing policies in place to help people remain safe as they browse for new additions to their family.
In light of the COVID 19 situation, we are not scheduling any new public events at this time.
BUT, we are still adopting out dogs! If you are interested in meeting a pup on our website, just send us an email at email@example.com to get an application. We may have to tailor our adoption process a bit, but we'll make it work!
