ADOPTION INFO

Adoption Steps:

1. Fill out application.
2. Contact by phone for the initial interview.
3. A home check/visit with all occupants present is required prior to final placement.
4. Meet your CuteAdopted friend and take him/her home.
5. Follow up home visit.

Each of our adoptable dogs is individually placed in a temporary private foster home. For this reason, we can only introduce the dogs to you by appointment only. Our adoption process is simple yet sufficiently detailed to ensure that each of our dogs are placed in the most suitable home based on the compatibility with the adopted families. Interested adoption families begin by filling out an “Adoption Application” and submit it by email or fax to our adoption center. Our Coordinator will process all the applications and review each application carefully for the best match. Your application will be preliminarily approved if you match the adoption criteria and one of our volunteers will call you to set up a phone interview. Once the adopting families complete the interview process we may request a home check with all occupants present to complete the final approval process. If you are outside our coverage area, pictures of your house or property may be use as a substitution for home visit.

When everything is approved and your family is ready, the time has come to meet your CuteAdopted and soon to be family member. Barring any unforeseen circumstances, you can take your friend home on the same day of the final approval. Before the dog is released, the new family will need to sign an adoption contract agreeing to be responsible for their dog’s needs including, food, lodging, health care and other necessities. The new family will also have to pay a small adoption fee which will go directly to help CuteAdopted continue its stated mission.

We always try our best to match our dogs to the right families. Our goal is to find them a loving home instead of just place them with anyone. Therefore, our organization will require up to 1 year of scheduled follow up home visits to make sure the CuteAdopted dogs enjoy a happy life with their responsible owners.

Under 1 year old - $250.00 USD           1-4 years old – $250.00 USD           5 and older –  $200.00 USD
