Out of State Adoptions:
We DO allow out of state adoptions and have sent dogs all over the USA and even to Canada! We have a few transport companies that we use and recommend. We cannot hold dogs for an extended period of time so we do ask that all efforts are made to have transport arranged as quickly as possible. Because we are a foster based organization, space is always critical and other hounds are always in need. Adopters are responsible for all transport costs in addition to our adoption fee. Transport costs are typically paid directly to the transport company. All adoption fees must be paid prior to the dog leaving our care.
Our Responsibility to the dogs....and you:
We will do our best to make sure that we are placing you with the best fit for your family. We have close relationships with all of our foster families and we know our dogs well. We do not require fences for all of our dogs, but we do highly recommend physical fences for all hounds. We also adopt hounds to families who live in apartments on a case by case basis. Some hounds do perfectly well, others will be miserable. Please be open and honest in your application so we can do our best to set both your family and your adopted dog up for success!
We are here for you and your adopted dog for the life of that dog. We never want our adopters to feel lost or unsure of what to do next, especially when there are unforeseen training difficulties. As mentioned before, we do our best to place dogs with families that are a good fit, but sometimes different environments can cause different behavior challenges to arise. Please don't hesitate to contact us in these situations. We want to help and we want to do it before these behaviors become bad habits. If at any time your adopted dog displays behavior that you don't believe is normal, contact us immediately.
Once a CCR dog, Always a CCR dog. We will always do our best to take dogs back should there be reason that the dog needs to be returned to rescue, but please consider that returning a dog means that another dog that is at risk of euthanasia in a shelter may not get a second chance. All we ask is that you make every effort to retain your dog. We want to make sure that any dog that has been through our organization is never in a risky situation again, so please contact us for options before giving your adopted dog up.
