How to Adopt


    Adoptions are not based on submission date. Dogs with multiple applications will have the opportunity to meet all potential adopters. 

    Since it is our goal that you have a pet that can enjoy a lifetime of love with you, we take special measures to ensure that the dog you rescue is the best match for you, your family and your life style.  The following is an outline of the adoption process.

    • Complete and submit our adoption application.  This helps us understand more about you and your lifestyle.

    • Schedule an appointment with a New Leash On Life representative.

    • Prior to adoption approval, all household members are required to meet the dog you are applying for as well as your existing dog,  If applicable. 

    • Complete and Sign an Adoption Contract 

    • ADULT DOGS - The minimum tax deductible adoption donation is $250

    • TRAINED DOGS - that have completed Basic Obedience training,  the minimum tax deductible adoption donation is $500

    • Live happily ever after with your new nest friend.
