Please check our homepage to see if the dog you are interested in is still on there. Some websites our dogs are posted on don't delete them as quick as we do.
Also, PLEASE NOTE: It's possible that the dog you are interested in may have a pending adoption. Feel free to list multiple dogs names you'd be interested in, just in case.
To start the process, we’ll need you to fill out this multi-part application. It may seem like we are asking for a lot of information and we do. But only to ensure all of our dogs end up in the best forever home possible.
If you've completed an application previously, there is no need to complete another. You're application remains on file. Simply contact Sarah to let her know of your interest in another dog.
When you are approved for adoption and you come to pick up your dog, we require that an adoption waiver be filled out for every dog. If you'd like to preview the waiver, click here. This will open a new window or tab to preview the waiver, You can simply close it to return to this application.
Your information is protected and we don't sell or rent it to anybody.
East Coast Adoption Agency adoption fees normally range from $300 to $350 (except courtesy posts... those normally run $50 and are clearly marked as such). When you get your new pet spayed or neutered and provide us with proof, we will refund $35 of that cost back to you.
This fee may vary based on the care provided to the dog prior to adoption (I.E. spay/neuter/medical care/etc.)
Our fees are based on these costs, averaged out over the amount of dogs we save each year. All fees received go directly back to being able to take in and adopt even more dogs.

That’s not to say you shouldn’t get a dog if you work — far from it. We all need a friendly face to come home to at the end of the day. A dog is a friend who is always there to greet you, play with you and exercise you. (You didn’t think this was a one-way relationship, did you?)
But not many of us can spend all day with our dogs, although it would be a great world if we could. We have work, school, family obligations, friends and other commitments in our lives. So we've put together some tips on our website that you can read on how you can make your dog’s life better — enrich it, — even when you’re not home.
