The Adoption Fee is on the profile of each dog
(payable by cash, check or PayPal)

EVERY dog we offer for adoption has already been spayed/ neutered, has been given age-appropriate vaccines, and is dewormed and micro chipped. All adoption fees go directly to Rescued for Life, Inc. to help pay for medical expenses, spaying/neutering, transport, boarding, training.


  • Adopters must be at least 21 years of age.
  • Renters will need written proof of permission to own pets.
  • Adopters who live in a condos/ townhouses/ trailers are required to bring a copy of their condo/ townhouse/trailer regulations or bylaws.

Criteria such as the need for a fence, hours the animal may be left alone, level of experience required, etc. will be determined according to the needs of each dog. Adoption approval is at the sole discretion of Rescued for Life, Inc.

Adoption Procedures

STEP ONE: Think it through. Do you have the time, energy and resources to devote to a new pet? Are you committed to caring for the dog for the next 10-15 years? Do you know what kind of pet would be best for your household?  Choosing the right dog

STEP TWO: Browse our website and choose a potential candidate. If you see a dog you like,  please use the link below to fill out the Adoption Application Form .

After we have received your application, we will contact you to arrange a meet and greet, followed by a home check. If you decide to proceed with the adoption, the board members will need to approve the adoption.

STEP THREE: Adoption Contract. Once approved, you will need to finalize your adoption by completing an adoption contract and paying the adoption fee in cash, check, or with PayPal (see list of adoption fees at the top of the page). 

STEP FOUR: Rescued for Life, Inc. is committed to the dogs it rescues for their entire lifetime.
Therefore, once a dog is adopted, RFL reserves the right to:

  • Check on the dog at any time to ensure its well-being.
  • Remove the dog from the home if any conditions of the adoption contract have been violated or, if in the opinion of RFL, the environment is unsafe.
  • If at any time you cannot keep the adopted dog, you must return it to Rescued for Life, Inc. and not to any other individual or shelter.

We cannot guarantee the health of any dogs adopted. Please be aware that the dogs available for adoption are rescue animals and, as such, have often been exposed to a variety of diseases. Like human illnesses, these disorders can have an incubation period of up to several weeks. If the dog you adopt shows signs of illness in the first weeks after it has been adopted, please inform us and take it to the vet for treatment.
Once a dog is adopted, the adopter is responsible for all medical expenses.
However under certain circumstances (which need to be approved), RFL may pay all or part of the dog’s medical care. Please remember we are always here to answer any questions you may have.
