Apply to Adopt a Dog

The CCRT mandates that all pets currently in an applicant’s home be spayed or neutered (unless as per the advice of your veterinarian) before we will consider placing a rescue dog with you. We believe very strongly in the importance of spaying/neutering for many reasons, including the improved health of the pet as well as helping to curb the high incidence of unnecessary/accidental breeding.

CCRT also mandates all pets need to be appropriately vaccinated as per vaccination protocol (unless as per the advice of your veterinarian).

In many cases, we receive multiple adoption applications for the same foster dog. We do not adopt out our dogs on a ‘first come, first served’ basis. Instead, all applications are reviewed with a goal of finding the most suitable forever home for the dog.

If your application is approved, you are fully responsible for all logistics and costs associated with that transport. When picking up the dog, the approved adopter is required to safely transport the dog home using a crate, dog seat, seatbelt restraint or other generally recognized safe method of vehicle pet restraint.  If the transport involves flying the dog, the dog must fly in cabin (no cargo) in an airline approved soft sided carrier accompanied by the adopter.
