Adopt a Dog

Thank you for your interest in adopting a pet from Rescuzilla! Each pet comes from our small network of foster homes, which allows us to give adopters a great idea of their personality and needs. All of our animals are vaccinated, microchipped, and spayed or neutered prior to adoption.

Adoption Process


Step 1: Adoption Questionnaire

Did a pet on our Adoptable Pets page catch your eye? To get the conversation started about adopting a pet, fill out this questionnaire.  


Step 2: Meet & Greet

When we receive your questionnaire, we will contact you via email to set up a meet & greet.  This is a great chance for the whole family to meet your potential new pet, ask questions, and just get a feel for how everyone would fit together as a family!  After you meet, we encourage potential adopters to take some time to think about and discuss the decision together.

If you decide it’s not a love connection, we are happy to continue to help you find the right match and will do our best to suggest another pet for your family!  


Step 3: Homecoming

If all parties decide to move forward, we will schedule a time to bring your new pet home to you and to complete the adoption process.  This also allows time for you to prepare your home with everything that you’ll need to welcome your pet.


Step 4: Agreement & Adoption Fee

Adoptions are finalized during the homecoming with a contract and adoption fee, which helps us continue our mission to rescue animals.
