Step 2. Meet and Greet – This can either be done at an Adoption event or one-on-one in a public location. This is an opportunity for the dog and the potential adopter to meet each other before moving forward. we also encourage you to bring any other dogs you have in the home to this meeting.

Step 3. Home Check and Finalize the Adoption – We will bring the dog to your home to complete a home check. This consists of making sure the home is a safe place to have an animal.
