Pre-approved adopters Enter Early for the “pick of the pups”


Always Adopt, a not-for-profit organization that brings together community leaders, dog adoption agencies and volunteers to host super-sized dog adoption events is pleased to announce their next Super Dog Adoption Day, Saturday November 4th at Clark farms, Matunuck RI.

Utilizing their signature, online “common app,” Always Adopt has refined the dog adoption process allowing pre-approved adopters to have the “pick of the pups” at all their events. “For the first time since the event’s inception a few years ago, we were in fear of running out of adoptable pups before the close of the event because so many adopters took advantage of the pre-approval process,” noted Louise Anderson Nicolosi, founder of Always Adopt. 

All adopters must be approved for adoption before they are permitted to walk away with a dog on the day of the event. The common app, available online at, allows potential adopters to be screened and approved prior to the event. The first few hours of the event are then open to approved adopters who can choose their new family member prior to the admittance of the general public. Potential adopters may also begin the adoption process the day of the event by just stopping and engaging with their selected dog’s adoption agency.

More than 3,000 dogs have been adopted via Always Adopt events since May of 2013. Always Adopt partners with a number of qualified dog shelters and rescue agencies located in southern New England to match as many adoptable dogs and qualified adopters at their one-day super adoption events. 

The Super Dog Adoption Day is free and open to the public with the exception of each agency’s adoption donation, which directly benefits the adopting agency.  Always Adopt encourages prospective adopters to visit to see all the dogs and puppies available for adoption and complete the adoption process if they desire to bring their newest family member home that day.
