Adoption Process

Adoption Process

Many Rescue Dogs end up in rescue thru no fault of their own.   Rescue Dogs have had difficult lives.  We are giving them a second chance at life.  We find new homes for these dogs so that they can be part of a family once again.  

The first step in adopting a rescue dog from Four Paws Elkhound Rescue is to fill out this adoption application.  It is online with nothing to print out. This gets your information into our system so that we can contact you directly.  

If you find a particular Rescue Dog that you are interested in, put their name in the last section of the application.   Some of our Rescue Dogs get a lot of interest.  Many families want the same dog.  If you aren’t selected for a certain dog, please don’t take it personally.   We have other Rescue Dogs that need you.  

The biggest thing a Rescue Dog needs is a commitment.  Many people say they like the dog.  We are looking for families that say they would like the dog to be part of their family.  No matter what they are going to try hard and love this dog unconditionally.   They will do whatever it takes.  

Congratulations on your choice of wanting to give a rescue dog a second chance at love and life.
