Please be advised that our number of incoming dogs decreased this year and our number of applications to adopt has drastically increased. While this is good news for the dogs, it does mean that the waiting list to adopt has grown dramatically.
Depending on your criteria the waiting time could realistically be 6 - 8 months or even longer. Unless you are interested in adopting one of our super sweet seniors or a special needs dog, please be prepared for a long wait to adopt.
If you are looking for a golden in the 1-5 year age range you will likely be at the long end of the estimated waiting time.
Please consider this before deciding to submit an application. If you are not prepared to wait for your next furry family member than please consider rescuing from a local shelter as they have many wonderful dogs just waiting for a home of their own.
