Don't live on Long Island?

Do you rent?

We do out of state adoptions!


  • You must be willing to drive to the foster home in order to meet the dog.

  • We do not ship or transport dogs anywhere but to a foster home.

  • We will ask a volunteer or rescue group in your area to do a home check for us.

  • We require that you send us photos of your home -- videos are even better!

We have the right to deny any adoptions in order to find the best home for our pup.
