*Please understand we do our best to find our dogs suitable forever homes.  The application may seem in depth and some of the questions we ask may seem irrelevant, but adopting a dog is a lifetime commitment.  There are no right or wrong answers and we would be happy to discuss any of this with you in detail.

Adoption Process

*Please Note* If you are filling out the application on a mobile phone and it will not allow you to select a multiple choice answer, please zoom in to make the selection. You MUST fill in all fields that have a red asterisk or you will not be able to submit the application. Thank you!

**This application is for adopting a dog only. If you would like to apply to volunteer/foster, please use the volunteer/foster application located on the 'Volunteer/Foster' tab.**

If you are interested in adopting a dog from Buddy's Second Chance Rescue and want to give a dog a forever home, the process is fairly simple. Below is the Adoption Application, please fill out the form and click 'submit'. A Buddy's Rescue volunteer will be in touch with you to set up a home visit at your home to make sure that it is a suitable environment for a dog to live. Once you have been approved, you will be given an adoption card, and should either contact the volunteer who gave you the card or Private Message the Buddy's Facebook page letting them know which dog you are interested in adopting. The dog's foster family will then contact you to set up a meet and greet to make sure that the dog will be a good fit for your family. We hope that you will find your new best friend through Buddy's Second Chance Rescue!

***PLEASE NOTE*** After clicking the 'submit' button, you will know that your application has successfully been submitted when the application form disappears. If you then scroll back up the page you will see further confirmation that reads 'THANK YOU FOR SUBMITTING AN APPLICATION WITH BUDDY'S SECOND CHANCE RESCUE. SOMEONE WILL BE IN CONTACT WITH YOU SHORTLY'. Please allow 5-7 days to hear from one of our volunteers before messaging our Facebook page.
