provide their own transportation to visit the dog and pick up the dog. We do not ship dogs. Distance
applicants must provide at least one letter of recommendation from a pet professional (i.e.: veterinarian,
animal trainer, or local humane organization) on letterhead in addition to photos of your home and property
that will show where the dog will be sleeping, fencing etc. We will also request a home visit from someone
local to your area. ALL individuals and other dogs living in the household must participate in the adoption
appointment to ensure compatibility. Transportation of dogs out of area must be in a safe and approved
manner including an adequately sized vehicle to accommodate all travelers and in most cases a transport
will return the dog to our rescue organization at your own expense.
A Passion for Paws typically requests a tax deductible donation for adoption between $250 and $500
depending on the age, purebred or mix, health and any other special considerations regarding the dog. We
reserve the right to establish an appropriate adoption donation for each dog on a case by case basis.
