Adoption Process

View Available Dogs

The first step is to view our available dogs.   We rescue new dogs all the time, so be sure to check the link below often. 


If you would like to meet one of our dogs and have an approved application on file get in touch with us to schedule an appointment. 

Complete an Application

Once your application has been received, our Adoption Coordinator will review your information and check your references.


Due to volume of applications we receive, we cannot respond to each inquiry.  If you wish to check on the status of a dog you are interested in or your application, please email ncyorkierescue@gmail.com.

Application Review

Your application will be reviewed by our adoptions team.  If it looks good and your references are great, you may be approved to adopt.  We will contact you if the dog you wish to adopt is available and we feel you and the dog would make a good match.
