How Does a Rescue Work?

How Does a Rescue Work?

Finding the next Norwegian Elkhound that we are going to rehome happens thru first researching dog rescues, social media posts, and word of mouth.  Next the place where the norwegian elkhound is located is contacted by phone to find out the circumstances of the norwegian elkhound needing rescued.

Thru phone calls, social media and word of mouth, potential new homes are found to match the norwegian elkhound's needs.  After phone calls and visits to the rescue norwegian elkhound's location, the best potential owner is matched to the dog in need.  If it is thru another rescue, the rescue agency then works with the potential owner to fill out paperwork and adopt the norwegian elkhound.  

When the adoption is completed, a monetary donation to the rescue, dog supplies or transportation fees are given to help lower the costs.  Follow up calls and visits are made to the rescued norwegian elkhound, and the new owner to help with the transition period into the new home.  
Adoption Process

Adoption Process

The adoption process is simple.  Working with a rescue dog is not so simple.

Fill out the adoption application form.  When we find a Norwegian Elkhound that matches what will work for you, we contact you.  We bring the Norwegian Elkhound to you.  This begins the pre-adoption period.  

For the next 30 days the dog lives with you.  We work with you to make sure the the transition period goes as smoothly as possible.  After 30 days if the dog is happy in his new home and you are happy with him, then the adoption ceremony takes place.  You are a family.  

If after trying everything you can and with our help, it doesn't work out for the dog or for you, we will find another home for him.  Remember this is probably his third or fourth home by now.  Let's try really hard as a team to make this work.
