Thank you for considering adoption! Adoption saves lives and is rewarding!

Because we have so many people who want to adopt one of our dogs, we are not accepting applications at this time. Currently, we have a long list of approved applicants waiting to meet dogs and a list of people waiting to apply on top of that.

We will consider new applications if you are interested in adopting one of our special needs dogs (behavior, medical or senior) please email If you are out of our normal territory (MN, WI, IA, SD, ND) and are interested in one of our special needs dogs, please email

More information about this temporary adoption application freeze will be posted to our website soon; please check back.
