No. We do not allow trial visit/trial adoptions.
Before the dog can be left or stay in your home, a contract must be signed and the adoption fee paid. This ensures you understand the responsibility of pet ownership and also releases ADR of all liability regarding the behavior and medical needs of the dog.
We require you be ready to accept your new dog into your home within 2-3 days of your home check.
Because we save dogs from shelter that have a high euthanasia outcome we need to get our dogs started off in their new life so that it will open up a foster home for the next dog that is at risk. After the match is made we feel that 2-3 days gives you plenty of time to get a crate, toys, food and any other items you may need to get your home ready for your new family member.
