If you haven’t already, head over to our Available Dogs page to see all of our unbelievably cute adoptable dogs.
Step 2: Fill out an application
Fill out our adoption application here and send it on over. If you have a specific dog in mind, be sure to tell us in the application.
Step 3: Wait for our call
After reviewing your application and talking to your references and veterinarian (if applicable), one of our volunteers will call you to schedule a home visit.
Step 4: Chat with us
The home visit, which may take place over video chat or in person, is an opportunity for us to learn about what you and your family are looking for in a dog, as well as learn about your daily routine and living arrangements. These are all important questions to help match you with a dog that will be a good fit for your family.
This is also a great opportunity for you to ask any questions you may have about our organization, dog adoption process, or a specific dog.
Once the application and home visit have been approved, it won’t be long before you’ll finally be able to meet the star of the show.
We recommend applying and completing the home visit step even if you don’t have a specific dog in mind. This will help you meet that perfect pooch faster once you spot them.
Step 5: Meet the dog!
When you finally meet that dog that’s been stealing your dreams, we assume there will be a lot of “awws”, puppy kisses and dog cuddles. However we recommend that you also spend some quality time with the dog’s foster family and ask them the need-to-know questions, such as: what are they eating, when are they pooping, what manners do they still need to learn, etc.
If it’s love at first sight, you can bring them home that day or pay a $100 deposit to hold your furry little friends for a few days. The adoption is completed once you fill out the Diamond Dogs Rescue Adoption Contract and pay the adoption fee.
Wasn’t meant to be? Fear not. There’s a whole lot of love to go around at Diamond Dogs Rescue. We’ll work with you to help you find that perfect fit – for both of you.
