About Us

Adopting A Friend

When you come to Dog Orphans and have chosen a dog to adopt, we will ask you to fill out an adoption application. All members of your family will have to meet him/her before your application can be approved,  this includes other dogs in the home. No appointment is necessary to come and meet our adoptable dogs during business hours.

Hours are Mon-Fri: 10am-12pm (closed 12-1pm for lunch) reopen 1pm-4:30pm. Saturday: 10am-4pm  Sunday: 10am-3:00pm (no lunch closings on weekends)

Adoption fees are $350.00 for adult dogs and $400 for puppies. All orphans are up to date on rabies vaccines, distemper, heart worm test, stool samples, microchipped and are spayed/neutered before adoption. We do not offer same day adoptions since we want to encourage the best match possible. Please review our adoption process on our website and we welcome any questions you have by phone or email at info@dogorphans.com.
