The first step to our adoption process is the application. Once you fill out the adoption form, one of our volunteer staff begin's the background check and the reference calling. As soon as we have spoken to each of your references we then reach out to schedule a home visit. There are a couple ways that Emotional Rescue can do those and member of our staff will let you know which option we will use, when we reach out. After your home has been approved we then schedule a meet and greet. The foster of the dog you're interested in will work with you to find a time for everyone to get together. This process can take up to a week and we ask all our adopters to please be patient during this time, as we are a small rescue who are entirely staffed by volunteers. Thank you so much for choosing to adopt with us, the application can be found below!
