What if I want to cancel my adoption?

You may cancel your adoption up to 48 hours within the transport date. Any adoption fees that you have paid will be refunded except the $75 deposit. This is because we are holding that pet for you and we stop accepting other applications on a pet once the deposit is paid.

If you have not notified us of your cancellation and just don't show up to meet the transport, no adoption fees will be refunded.

Why do I see the puppy I am interested in posted on another rescues site?

We work very closely with Save a Mutt kennel. They help us place our puppies at times.

Do I have to put in a new application for each pet that I am interested in?

Not if you have applied fairly recently. You can email to let us know. You can also place more than one pets name on an application.

What happens after I place my adoption application?

We will process your application which can take up to 7 business days. You will be notified via email whether you are approved or not. We approve one adopter per pet. You will then be given the phone number to the foster parents so you can speak with them before making an adoption commitment. A non-refundable $75  deposit is required to hold your pet for you once you let us know that you do want to adopt.

How can I be sure that my application was received?

Be sure that you hit "submit" at the end of the application. You should then be redirected to a page stating that your application has been received. We also recommend that you email to let us know that you have placed an application so we can confirm that it was received.

What if my new pet is not working out for my family?

We do take our pets back within the first 2 weeks and refund your adoption fee. After 2 weeks we take are our pets back on space available, but we do not refund your adoption fee. We normally have space for small breed dogs.

What are your adoption fees?

On average, between $150 and $450.

What if I cannot receive my pet on the next available transport?

We then encourage you to use the above mentioned individual driver with the more flexible schedule. Once a pet is adopted, we count on that pet leaving on the first available transport because we usually have pets waiting to come into the adoption program. If we have to keep the pet longer then there is a $10 a day boarding fee.

Is the pet that I am interested in fostered in my location?

Possibly. We do have foster homes in various locations

Why do I see the pet that I am interested in posted in more than one place?

We post our pets in multiple locations to maximize their exposure so they will be adopted quickly. We live in a high kill area and the sooner we place one pet, we can rescue another one!

How can I get my new pet if fostered in another state?

We have transportation available through Throw Away Pups Transport or through an individual that will deliver to your door (U.S.only) and has a more flexible schedule. Both are independent of our rescue.

Will I be able to speak with the foster parents about the pet I am interested in?

Yes, but you must be approved to adopt first.  If you are adopting a pet 6 months of age or older, we require adopters to speak with the foster parents before making an adoption committment. If you are adopting a puppy, foster parents can be spoken to upon request.

Where can I go to see the pets that are available for adoption?

All of our pets are in foster homes. We do not have a facility.
