Before you apply, please review the adoption requirements and ask yourself....

  • If you are applying for a dog under age 2, do you have German Shepherd or similar breed experience?

Please be sure to answer all questions as accurately as possible. Once your application is recieved, an adoption counselor will call you to discuss your application. Any missing information may result in delays in processing your application.
