Frequently asked questions

What is the adoption fee?


Fetching Hearts Rescue’s adoption fee is $485. This fee covers transportation from the southern shelter the dog was pulled from as well as full vetting including but not limited to:
· Spay/Neuter
· Heartworm testing
· All age appropriate vaccinations
· Testing and treatment of parasites
· Micro-chipping




Why can't you guarantee me the dog I am applying for?


We work hard to process applications as they come in so it may be that there are several other potential adopters that have already expressed interest in the same dog. That said, just because an application comes in first does not guarantee first adoption rights. Dogs are matched based on a variety of criteria. We want to give our dogs the best chance at a forever home. That's why our screeners are so thorough in vetting our applicants to find a match that will last a lifetime. So the good news is that you don't have to be the first applicant to be chosen as the adopter. You just need to be the first great match.

If you don't get to adopt your "first choice" it may be that you got lucky and they were not a good fit for you. Don't worry, there are always amazing dogs right around the corner. So get your application in regardless, you never know. Also, once you have been vetted the process can move much faster for the next dog that you see.
