Can I take a dog home on a trial basis?

Yes! All adult dogs will go home with you for a free, week long Trial Adoption (aka foster-to-adopt) This is based on an approved ADOPTION application.

This is a great way to see how your other pets get along with a new member of their pack or to test the dog if someone in your home suffers from allergies. If you suffer from allergies, please let us know so we can recommend a suitable breed for your condition.

If at the end of the week you do not feel that the dog is a good fit for you we can either re-home the dog with a new foster, or hopefully you will continue to foster the dog until a permanent home is found.

In general, very young puppies are not up for trial periods as we prefer not to disturb their environments until a firm commitment is made. Since they are puppies, their true personality has not yet developed and it is the new owner’s duty to form and shape the puppy’s behavior as it matures.
