We work every day to save the lives of dogs at high kill shelters – which is our primary mission. We can, however, offer you the chance to participate in our “Guest Dog Adoption Program” to benefit from our expertise at finding loving, permanent families for great dogs!
Some years ago we implemented a Guest Dog Adoption Program (GDAP) to help those individuals trying to place a dog they’ve rescued into a safe & loving home. We also extend the program to those who, in the best interest of their dog, need to place him/her in a new home environment.
DFW Rescue Me is not a shelter; our all dogs are in foster homes. Due to the shortage of foster homes and the expense of boarding we can’t offer a place for your dog to live while awaiting a permanent home,
To participate in the Guest Dog Program
- Fill out the online guest dog form
- Upload up to three (close up, focused and well lit) pictures of your dog with the form
- Up to date vaccinations (rabies / distemper / parvo / bordatella) and spay/neuter are required (not an option / but required!) If your dog is too young for spay or neuter, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss special arrangements.
- After we receive the form we will contact you to let you know your dog is posted, and ask that you review the posting to insure it’s accurate and correct!
Our Adoption Process
We forward the inquiry or application to you for your review, and ask that you contact them within 24 hours, if possible. After you and the applicant speak, if you both feel it’s a potential match, arrange a meeting at your home, their home, or anywhere in between! If you both still feel this is a potentially good match, the next step is a home visit to ensure the dog will be safe in his/her new environment and is compatible with family members and other pets. If all involved agree, a signed contract from the adopter is required (we’ll provide this for you) stating the new owners are adopting this pet as a companion animal and member of their family You can take a look at our online adoption application to give you an idea of what we are looking for in a potential adopter.
If you have questions, you’re always welcome to email our guest dog coordinator at email@example.com.
We’ll try to answer you asap!
