Online Adoption Application

Thank you for your interest in adopting one of our dogs! We do not have a physical shelter and are an all-volunteer, foster-based organization. We do showcase our dogs at adoption events on the weekends. You are welcome to attend those events and visit with our dogs. Please note that we do not do same day adoptions nor schedule a meet with a specific dog for you without a pre-approved application on file. Submitting an application does not commit you to adopting a dog.

Canine Lifeline rescues dogs facing euthanasia in rural county shelters. They are coming to us as strays with unknown histories. The questions we ask in the application below are to help us determine whether the dog you are interested in would be the best match for your home environment. The information you provide is for Canine Lifeline’s internal use only and will never be sold or given to a third-party.

After you’ve successfully submitted your application, you will receive an automatic email confirmation of your submission. If you did not receive the automated email confirmation, please double check your spam folder first. If you found nothing there, then please send an email inquiry to:
