Why do I need to get approved before seeing the dogs?

Our dogs are all over Atlanta and we all have full time jobs. So making appointments to see a dog take a lot of coordination and energy for us. We need to make sure you are approved before we can schedule an appointment. Everyone is welcome to come to our adoption days, you don’t have to be approved to come and play with our dogs at adoption. At the same time, it is rare that we can approve you on the spot at adoption so you may miss the chance to adopt a dog you like if you are not approved already.

Notice that your application is not a commitment to adopt. Once you are approved we keep your application on file for at least 6 months so you can adopt at any time. The application also allows us to learn about your situation and to recommend the dogs that would be the best match for you and your family.
