Special Adoptions

The Special Adoptions Program is designed to facilitate the placement of dogs with manageable  behavior problems. In this program, special attention is given to find suitable adopters and special counseling is given to the adopters so they can safely integrate the dog into the new home. This special counseling will also maximize the likelihood of the dog having a long-lasting relationship with the adopter.  The form below can be used as a Special Adoption Consult Form [pdf] when implementing a Special Adoption program in your shelter. 

Shelter staff may use the resources to the right as take-home literature for those adopting a dog through the Special Adoptions Program.
