IDOG Rescue has a comprehensive adoption screening process that includes an adoption application, phone interview, veterinarian and personal reference checks and a home visit, when possible. All dogs have an adoption fee ranging from $100 to $750 depending on the dog. Each adopter is required to sign an adoption contract that requires the adopter to contact IDOG if they are no longer to keep their dog for any reason. We try to avoid stressing our foster dogs by shipping or transporting them long distances to visit a potential adopter so please consider dogs that you are willing and able to visit within a short time of being approved to adopt that dog.
Dogs in our care receive a comprehensive veterinary exam, core vaccinations, fecal test/dewormer, heartworm test, heartworm/flea/tick preventives, a microchip and are spayed/neutered prior to adoption. All of our dogs are microchipped and IDOG remains as the emergency backup contact on all of our dogs' microchips for their lives.
We are no longer accepting general applications; each application must be for a particular dog. Please submit an application once you see a dog that interests you and for which you'd like to be considered.
Getting started is easy:
1) View our available dogs below. We have more dogs that are in foster homes and not yet ready for adoption.
2) Complete an adoption application to be considered for a particular dog that is currently available for adoption.
3) Wait to hear back from us. We will respond to every application.
