Adoption Application

Applications may take up to 7-10 days to process. Due to the volume of applications received, we unfortunately don’t have the manpower to reply to each applicant. We wish we could thank each of you personally for caring enough to apply!

If you have not received a reply and the pet you are interested in no longer appears on our site, then you may assume they have begun a happy new life at their forever home.

  • Incomplete applications will be discarded. Please insert ‘NA’ in fields where the question is not applicable to your situation.
  • ABARC handles out-of-state adoptions on a case-by-case basis only. Transportation is the sole responsibility of the adopter.
  • We reserve the right to refuse adoption to anyone.
  • Dogs are typically placed in their forever homes within 48 hours of an approved home visit. If your adoption plan does not include adding a dog to your family within the next 2 weeks, please wait to submit an application until that time. We do not place dogs on hold for any reason so please do not ask us to.

Submitting an Adoption Application signifies you have read and accept the conditions as stated above.
