Application for Adoption

The average time it takes to process an adoption application is 3 weeks which includes
screening by our volunteers, a phone interview, reference checks and then a home visit. 
We are very thorough and applicants are not matched with dogs on a first come, first
serve basis.  The more specific your requirements, the longer it is going to take for a
match.
After your phone interview, reference, and home visit reports are submitted by our
volunteers, they are reviewed by the Directors. Soon after, you will be contacted to let
you know if you are an APPROVED Boxer home. If you are, then the fun starts...
the process of matching you with the right Boxer!
 

ADOPTION APPLICATION

Applicants must be at least 21 years of age and anyone filling out an application who is living with their parents,
