Many rescued animals are coming from a background of abuse, neglect, or abandonment. Some have lost their homes and loved ones due to the economy. All these animals have been traumatized, but Wolfdogs are especially sensitive and take a little longer than most domestic dogs to adjust and get over the stress they have endured. Often you will see the most noticeable changes in 3 weeks, and again in 5 months. How long are you willing to work with the animal to help him or her settle in?

Thank you for taking the time to fill out this application. We make every effort to match

potential adopters with compatible animals, and to avoid the undue stress of an

inappropriate placement.  Usually there is an Adoption Fee/Donation of $150 

which contributes to the rescue efforts for all our animals. 

If you would like a Whistle Tracker for your dog, we can supply one for an

additional $65 (normally $80). Read about Whistle on our website.

 

Thank you for considering a rescued animal!
