Since 2015…

We have been priding ourselves in creating a lasting relationship with our adopters. In doing so, we work to provide a tailor made adoption experience unique to each family. You can apply for a specific dog or you can fill out an application and get preapproved! Either way, our Adoptions Team will work to be as open and honest with you through the adoption process as possible!

Adoption Process

  1. Start by viewing our adoptable dogs at www.lucky7dogrescue.com/adoptabledogs

  2. If there is a pup that sparks your interest, you can email adoptions@lucky7dogrescue.com for more information or fill out an application at www.lucky7dogrescue.com/applynow

  3. If there is not an adoptable dog that matches what you are looking for, you can keep eye out on the site or fill out an application at www.lucky7dogrescue.com/applynow to get preapproved for adoption.

  4. Once the application is received, volunteers will fully process it in 3-4 business days.

  5. If your application has been approved, a meet and greet will be scheduled with you, the dog you are interested in, and their foster home to further determine if it is a good fit.

  6. Take time as a family to discuss whether this is truly the best decision for your family .

    ***When a dog goes home, they become a member of your family. They are an investment- emotionally and financially. It is important to recognize that they will need continued veterinary care, potential training, time, and energy.

  7. If all goes well, an appointment will be made to finalize the adoption and from there you will be able to take the dog home.

 

What's included with an adoption?

  • All dogs 7 years old and younger have a non-refundable adoption fee of $300.

  • All dogs 8 and older have a "donation only" adoption fee.

  • All dogs are up to date on age appropriate vaccinations, spayed/neutered, and microchipped before going home unless a vet requires otherwise.

***If you are adopting a dog from down South, they are at a higher risk of heartworm disease. Although we test for heartworm and are required to send home a dog with a negative test, these diseases can pop up after a dog goes home. Please retest your dog for heartworm disease 6 months from their last test and always keep them up to date on monthly preventatives.We encourage you to have a plan in place prior to adopting in the event that your new family member needs any kind of additional vetting or training.

***We strongly encourage you to bring your new family member in within 30 days of adoption for a vet exam and to share your paperwork with them. This ensures that your vet knows what vaccine and testing schedule your dog is on and can update you when they are do for booster shots or blood tests.

 

 

***Below you will find an online fillable adoption application as well as an application you can download, fill out, and email to adoptions@lucky7dogrescue.com. Either is completely acceptable. We have provided both as some applicants prefer one version over the other. Choose whichever works best for you and we will get started processing it. It usually takes our hardworking volunteers 3-4 business days to fully process an application. If you do not hear from us on the status of your application in that time, please follow up with adoptions@lucky7dogrescue.com to ensure your application was received. We look forward to helping you find your next family member!
