Adoption policy

We are a very small all-breed, all-volunteer, foster-based rescue. We do not have a facility. All our dogs are in foster homes located around the twin cities. Our primary focus is on Pregnant dogs and puppies with or without their moms, but we do accept adult dogs if and when we have open foster homes. Our goal is to take unwanted puppies and dogs and find the right fit home for them. Being a foster-based rescue means we have the opportunity to get to know the dogs before adoption. As we get to know them, we use our application and other means like social media to get to know our families and place puppies and dogs in good homes that best fit them. During Covid-19 we will not be doing any home visits but may request a virtual home visit if needed. We are always looking for more fosters and accept adult and puppy foster homes. We supply crate, food, leash, collar, and vetting. We do not have staff; we only have volunteers. The fee is payable by cash, PayPal Friends and Family, Venmo Friends and Family, or by card. (there will be a $20 fee applied to all card transactions) Our fee includes: •Exam- some dogs will have an exam at the time of surgery, and some will have it done prior to coming to the rescue. •Up To Date on core vaccines- DAPP vaccine and Rabies if over 16 weeks. Some adult dogs may have other vaccines and they will be listed in the records you receive at adoption. •Spay or Neuter. We use the U of M teaching program •Initial flea and tick preventative. Then monthly, while in rescue only, from May 1- Nov 1 •Initial heartworm preventative. Then monthly, while in rescue only, from May 1 - Nov 1 •Puppies will be dewormed every 2 weeks for 2 months. Then monthly while in rescue. Dogs over 6 months will get 2 dewormings, 2 weeks apart. Then monthly while in rescue. Dogs and puppies have worms. They are in the environment and in their mother’s milk. It is important to continue to worm your pets even after adoption and throughout their lives or they will continue to have worms. •Some dogs will include microchipping and it will be listed on their bio Preventatives are only provided while in rescue. We will not provide preventatives after adoption or once placed into the foster to adopt or surgical program. This includes deworming, flea and tick, or heartworm.

AAHA provides an internet-based application that enables veterinarians, humane organizations, pet owners or other persons to search various Pet Recovery Service registries and identify those registries on which a particular microchip is registered. AAHA is not affiliated or involved with any specific microchip registry and has no relationship, financial or otherwise, with this Participating Pet Recovery Service Registry ("Registry"). This Registry has given AAHA permission to search the Registry's database in order to assist pet owners in being reunited with their pets. AAHA does not maintain a database of microchips of its own. It only links to registries such as this one. The AAHA Universal Microchip Lookup Tool only searches the databases of companies that elect to participate in the program.
