Adoption Application

All applications will be thoroughly processed to ensure that any dog in the care of Misfit Manor Dog Rescue Society (MMDRS) is appropriately matched with a suitable home. The time invested in the application process is to ensure that everyone benefits from each adoption: both the home and the dog in care.

Because we work with special needs dogs on a case by case basis some extra requests may be included in an evaluation depending on the dog's specific needs.

Adoption fees will be $275 for all dogs.

We reserve the right to refuse any adopter without providing just cause.

Completing an Adoption Application provides MMDRS with information. It is not a guarantee that potential adopters will receive a specific dog or any dog in our care. We also reserve the right to share information gained from applications with rescue affiliates if deemed appropriate.
