Adopting A Friend

I'm eager to get these pups into their forever homes! You can bet you won't have to wait around for me to respond to an email or phone call. I'll be in touch with you almost immediately. If you submit an application and I don't respond, please follow up with an email or phone call, as ocassionally something goes wrong with an online application submission.

If you have questions about a particular dog or puppy or simply want to inquire about their availability, send an email to marysdogsadoptions@gmail.com or even better? Submit our online questionnaire at marysdogs.com

Potential adopters should fill out our adoption questionnaire which can be found on our Mary's Dogs website here: http://www.marysdogs.com/

You can submit the application right online. No need to print it and send by snail mail. Do be sure it was received, however. As mentioned previously, if you don't receive word back, it means that the questionnaire wasn't received. Please resend!

Once your questionnaire is complete we'll call you for a phone interview. We check all references and may also require a home visit.

The adopter will complete an adoption contract once the adoption has been approved.

Our fee for adoption is $545 for dogs 1yr + and $595 for puppies and young adults under 1 year of age. This fee includes all vetting: up to date DHPP vaccinations, rabies vaccine, bordatella vaccine (kennel cough), interstate health certificate/pre-transport vet visit, spay/neuter, NPF fecal, worming, flea/tick preventative, microchipping. The fee also includes all transportation costs, quarantine fees and an exam by our veterinarian. Note: All of our dogs arrive in NH and are quarantined for 72 hrs at Mary's Dogs Inn, our licensed quarantine facility in Northwood, NH and receive a State of NH Health Certificate, as required by law.  All dogs arrive healthy and clean, free of fleas and ticks, sporting a brand new collar and leash and ready to take on the world with their new best friend!

Who We Are

Mary's Dogs has a very active, bright and energetic Rescue Team in place. Our primary goal is to help nurture a bond between you and the dog who "finds" you. Our adoptions do not end when a dog goes home. We're committed to follow up (forever, but particularly through the first year) and support. We place great importance in training and ongoing education and ready to help!
