Applicants with children under 8 years of age will not be considered. Read our rationale behind the policy. This requirement does not apply to adoption of puppies under 6 months of age. (Note: Puppies are not always posted on our website, as we maintain a puppy waiting list. If you are interested in a puppy, even though you don’t see any, please fill out an application. We never know when puppies will come into our program.)
