Intake Request

Please take the time to fill out the form completely.

If you have found a stray who appears to be someone's pet, please attempt to locate the owner first by calling numbers on their tags, posting "Found" flyers, having the dog scanned for a microchip (most vets will do this for free), and looking around your neighborhood for "Lost" posters. You should also contact the animal shelters in your area to make sure no one has reported a missing dog like the one you found. Please complete this form only after you have made a sincere attempt to locate the dog's owner. Please don't try to find the dog a new home on Craig's List or Facebook because there are people who will take animals (especially free ones) for uses other than as pets.

Please do not use this form for dogs currently in a shelter.

** PLEASE NOTE** Due to limited space, we are usually unable to admit dogs immediately. If your request is accepted, your dog(s) will be put on a waiting list until foster space is available.
