Our Adoptable Pet List

Adopting a friend from Safe Harbor Farm

If you are ready to commit to a long-term relationship with a four-legged buddy and interested in being an active participant in making the relationship work (even before you pick your new partner!), our volunteers are equally interested in helping you find the perfect match. We're really good at that... our return rate is only 2% (and always due to human issues, not canine ones!)

Our adoption process takes a few days, and it begins with you visiting (working link below) to read our "Adopt a Friend" page. There you will find lots of information about our animals and our adoption application. You do not have to know which dog you want in order to apply, but pre-qualification is required to visit SHF's dogs. As soon as we get your application, we'll call your veterinary references. If you get an enthusiastic "thumbs up" from your vet, we'll then call you to answer any questions you might have and invite you to Safe Harbor, where you'll have plenty of time to meet the dogs and enjoy a walk in the woods before making the important decision of adding to your family (most people stay at least 2 hours).
