Adopt a Corgi

We do in state adoptions only. We find that we can be more supportive of our dogs and adopters if they remain in the state of Florida.

Adoption Process

We love our dogs and are most particular about adopting personalities of a dog to a family’s characteristics and desires.  To accomplish, we use the following…

Adoption process:

  1. You complete and submit an adoption mini-application.  The application covers the following areas:
    1. Brief household information, people and home
    2. Inventory of your interests in a dog and characteristics you desire
  2. Your mini-application will be used to compare your family’s characteristics to those of all available dogs.  If a match is made, you will be asked to complete a Supplemental Information form that supplies the following information:
  3. Three Personal References
  4. One Veterinary Reference
  5. Detailed household information
  6. When we receive the application, your references WILL BE called as part of the final application review process.
  7. With your permission, one of our volunteers will visit with you and all household members.
  8. Application and all gathered information from the reference checks is provided to our Adoption Coordinator for matching a dog’s personality to your household’s characteristics and desires.
  9. Meet and greet is arranged between you and the foster family.  Location of our dogs may be anywhere in the state of Florida.  The potential adoptive family must make arrangements with the foster families to meet our dogs.
  10. If the meet and greet turns out to be successful, the adoptive family will sign the Adoption Application, pay the adoption fee and have a new family member.  Adoption fees range up to $700.00 for our young dogs with no special needs.  Adoption fees are reduced for our senior and special needs dogs. Average Adoption Fee is $200.00
  11. Two Week Trial period for each adoption.  If for any reason the adoption appears not to be a suitable match, the dog may be returned to our program.  All dogs will need a certain amount of transition time and training to settle well into their new homes.  Our volunteers are available for consult at any time to help with each dog’s transition into their new home.
