You can alternatively share the required images/ rental agreements via microsoft OneDrive, google drive, dropbox or apple iCLOUD. This enables you to retain control the the images, and you can unshare/delete them after you have been approved. If you do this, place the images in a seperate folder and share the folder with firstname.lastname@example.org, then add the link to your shared images in the indicated field at the top of your application.
We receive hundreds of email inquiries daily, Due to the high volume we are unable to respond to every inquiry.
Given the current shelter in place in CA we will not be holding any adoption events in the near future. We will arrange appointments only for approved adopters to visit our facility in Lemoore.
We also suggest you bring cash for the adoption fee as internet coverage at the facility is spotty. Payment methods are cash or Zelle.
Note that we are practicing social distancing at the facility, and attempting to isolate as much as possible. If you are cleared for a visit, please remember to wear gloves and a mask and keep your distance. Thanks for your consideration.
Everyone, please stay safe at this time, and we will see you again once we are over this and back to normal operations.
Below is an email that is sent to everyone who inquires about adopting.
Please take the time to read through our adoption process and procedures thoroughly.
We enter information about each puppy/dog on Petfinder in their BIO's. Please read through it before asking questions which we have already answered.
The majority of our dogs are in our facility and not in foster homes. We DO NOT kid, cat or temperament test our dogs/puppies with other animals. If we feel a particular dog would not be suited in a home with kids, cats, other dogs, or other animals, it will be stipulated in the dogs Bio on PetFinder.
1. Your application will be processed once we have your required documentation and images.
