How to Adopt a Dog from Pooch HeavenPrevious Page
Once you've made the decision to adopt a new family member, you'll need to decide what type of dog will fit best with your lifestyle. Dogs come in all shapes, sizes, personalities and temperaments, just like people, so it's important to think about these things before you adopt. Taking a dog into your home is a big responsibility, but well worth the effort. Knowing what your needs and capabilities are before taking a dog into your home can help ensure a rewarding experience for you, your family, and your new pet. To assist you with this decision process, we at Pooch Heaven have provided you with the ability to search for a pal in our doggie database.

Once you have found the dog you are interested in, click on the 'Adopt this Dog' link. You will be asked to complete an adoption information form.
Your privacy is important to us. Pooch Heaven uses the information you provide for contact purposes only. Once your information has been received, our staff will contact you to set up an appointment to meet your potential new family member.

The Adoption Agreement
Every new owner will be asked to sign an  adoption agreement. It is a statement of commitment and understanding that the new owner is aware of the responsibilities that come with adopting a dog and that he or she agrees to provide a loving and safe home for a dog that will, in turn, provide companionship and love.
Responsibilities
Along with the responsibility of loving and caring for you dog comes a responsibility of training that dog to live harmoniously within the environment you provide. Every effort is made to determine and describe to the prospective owner the temperament, condition and overall health of each dog. The foundation cannot and does not make any warranties or representations of any kind. The responsibility that comes with the ownership of a dog is a great one. Each and every prospective owner is encouraged to carefully consider all that such a responsibility entails.
    A dog owner is responsible for the safety of not only the dog, but also other people, children and the property of others. Each dog owner is responsible to make sure that they are in compliance with all laws, rules and regulations concerning dog ownership, including, without limitation, licensing, shots, zoning, building requirements, additional security deposits and homeowner's insurance.

Thank you for your support and continuing commitment to this great cause.
