Please check our homepage to see if the dog you are interested in is still on there. Some websites our dogs are posted on do not update quickly.
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 on a single application.
To start the process, we’ll need you to fill out this multi-part application. We want to ensure all of our dogs end up in positive environments, for their life!
After your application is submitted, it will be reviewed and you will hear from us within 48 hours. If your application is approved, one of our fosters will reach out to you to set up an appointment to meet the dog. If all goes well at the meet and greet, you will fill out the adoption agreement at that time and take your new family member home with you that day. Here is a link to the adoption agreement to review if you wish. 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 are $350 ($360 for credit card payments online) (except courtesy posts... those normally run $50 to $100 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 the adoption fee back to you.
All fees received go directly towards saving 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.
