Are you ready to find your next best friend from Tiny N Tall Rescue?! We are ready to help you!! If you are interested in adopting from us please read our requirements & the adoption process below, before filling out an application.

Adoption Requirements:

  • We do adopt out of state, however, The Applicant, ALL dogs AND anyone that is also living in the home are responsible for coming to meet the dog, and transporting home. NO EXCEPTIONS!! We are based out of Saint Charles, IL. All of our available dogs are in foster homes through out the state.

  • Everyone living in your household must agree on adopting.

  • Must have any approval needed by either a Landlord or Association.

  • The Adopter must be at least 21 years of age.

  • Must go through adoption approval process by TNT before meeting adoptable dogs.

  • Requirements for ALL resident dogs in the home:

  •  All resident dogs must be spayed/neutered by 6 months old. If they have a medical condition that prevents it, we will need a note from your veterenarian

          • Up to date Rabies Vaccine

          • Up to date DHLPP vaccine​

          • Monthly Flea and Tick prevention

          • Monthly Heartworm Prevention

          (We will make exceptions for certain circumstances at TNT's discretion)

Our Adoption Process:

  1. Fill out and submit our adoption application here.

  2. We require a one time $20 NON-REFUNDABLE application donation before we start to process your application. (The application donation will be subtracted from the final adoption fee)

  3. Once your application has been filled out, a volunteer will reach out to you and let you know it is being processed.

  4. Our Adoption Team will start reaching out to you for a phone interview, they will check your vet and personal references, and you will receive an email with instructions on how to complete a virtual home check.

  5. The application process usually takes about 5-7 days from start to finish. We are all volunteers, so please be patient if it takes any longer. 

  6. Once all of that is completed, and your application has been approved, you will then receive an approval email with instructions on the next steps to adopt from TNT!

**Our number one goal is to make sure the home that is chosen, is the best fit for that specific dog.  Your application will be forwarded to the foster of the dog you have applied for when the dog is ready for adoption.*Please note that when a dog is being shown on our website and Facebook, this does not automatically mean they are ready for adoption.  We require all dogs to be on a minimum of 1-2 week intake hold. Many times this hold can be longer to insure the dog is healthy enough, and behaviorally ready for their furever home. 


Please be patient and the foster will contact you when the dog is ready. We take multiple applications per dog and the foster will be calling everyone to do their own "interview" and decide who to set up a meet and greet with. Everyone who lives in the household must be present. If you have a dog, that dog must also be present at the time of meeting as well. If you have ANY questions about the process or even after, please email

What is included in the adoption fee?

All of Tiny N Tall’s adoptable dogs will be spayed/neutered prior to adoption (unless they are too young, in which case we will have a spay/neuter contract), up to date on all age appropriate vaccines, microchip with tag and free lifetime registration, 4dx heartworm and tickborn disease tested, their collar & leash, Tiny N Tall id tag on collar, and a “Welcome to your New Home” Tiny N Tall Rescue reusable bag that includes: a bag of their current food to help transition, 1 Kong, a bag of treats, any of their favorite toys, 30 days free pet insurance, a “Tiny N Tall Rescue” decal, and an adoption info packet to help you and your new family member transition smoothly into their new home!


**We work hard to process adoption application in a timely manner. If there is a delay in getting in contact with you, your reference, vet or getting your home check returned this will delay the application process.


We do NOT guarantee the dog you applied for will still be available by the time your application is approved, especially if there is delays in your application on your end**

***We reserve the right to deny any adoption application for any reason we see necessary.  If your application is denied we will contact you. NO REFUNDS of donations will be made**
