Adoption Process

Step 1: The Application: Caring Hearts for Canines requires completed adoption applications before meeting any of our dogs. If you are interested in a particular dog, please fill out the application and indicate the name of the dog that you are interested in adopting. If you do not have a dog in mind, but would like to send an application in to have on file, please put pre-approval. 
______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
Step 2: Home Visit: Once the application has been reviewed, a home visit will follow. We will be in contact to schedule it, depending on the situation it is either a virtual home visit or in person, that is decided by CHFC. Once the application and home visit has been completed and approval status is granted, a meet and greet will be set up between adopter and the dog.

Step 3, Adoption Fee: Upon the completion of the application, home visit, meet and greet and the adoption has been confirmed, the Adoption Fee must be paid, and any necessary waivers completed. Payment can be made at the link below or check/cash at pick up. The adoption fee is $150 for adult dogs and $200 for puppies. Adoption fees are not tax deductible. Please note: for all puppy adoptions it is required that adopters send the proof of spay/neuter to caringheartscanine@gmail.com.
Caring Hearts for Canines does follow up with adopters to see how the adoptions are working out. If you adopt a puppy, you are required to send us the spay or neuter proof at the time of the procedure. We will follow up, and require the vet record. Caring Hearts for Canines also reserves the right to deny any approved adopter if CHFC sees fit. 
DO NOT PAY UNTIL YOU HAVE BEEN APPROVED.
PLEASE ONLY PAY THE FEE IF YOU HAVE BEEN INSTRUCTED TO DO SO.
