Things to Know Before You Apply for Adoption
The application process for an ARCBCR dog includes several steps… an application review, vet record check, home visit and finally a meet-and-greet with the dog. Your patience during this process is appreciated… we work as quickly as possible. However, we are all volunteers, squeezing in time when time is available.

In most cases we receive multiple applications on each dog. We do not, however, place our dogs on a first-come-first-serve basis. We place our dogs in homes that are the best fit for both the dog and the adopting family. Our dog fosters review all the information on applicants to help determine suitability; and, they have the final say on where his/her dog is placed.

Terms of Adoption. Please read before applying. Please do not apply unless you are ready to adopt a dog, committed to the process and are able to provide at least of few weeks to acclimate a dog to its new surroundings. Once an application is submitted it is processed with the intent that the applicant is serious.
