Our Adoption Process:
Fill out and submit our adoption application..
One of our Volunteer's will start by reaching out to conduct your personal phone interview, they will also check your vet reference and personal references.
The application process typically takes about 5-7 days, from start to finish. Please remember, we are volunteers, so be patient.
Once all of that is completed, and your application has been approved to adopt from TNT, you will receive an approval email.
**We do not adopt out siblings unless stated otherwise that they are a bonded pair.
**IF YOUR DOG IS NOT UP TO DATE ON VACCINES PLEASE GET THIS DONE BEFORE APPLYING** WE WILL CALL YOUR VET TO CHECK**
After your Application is Approved:
**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 for review to the foster home of the dog you have applied for about 1-2 weeks before they are 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 home will contact you when the dog is almost ready for adoption. We take multiple applications per dog, and the foster home will be looking over all of the approved interested applicants to see which family may be the right fit for the TNT doggie. They will then decide who to set up a meet and greet with. Everyone who lives in the household must be present for the meet and greet. If you have a dog, that dog must also be present at the time of meeting. If the meet and greet goes well for everyone, you can adopt the dog that day and take them to their new furever home!! We accept credit card/debit card ONLY for form of payment for the adoption fee donation.
If you have ANY questions about the process or even after, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
