General adoption application and information

Pre-Screened Applicants get the Pick of the Pups with Exclusive Early Entry!

First 200 at 10am, next 200+ at 11am


This application is for those planning to come to the event and choose from all the dogs that will be present.

The sooner you complete the adoption application, the more time we have to complete your screening by the event day. Applications will close on October 28th.

After you complete the Adoption Application you will be contacted for an interview and your references will be called. You will then be made aware of your status and have paperwork to bring to the event. We will also share your information with all the attending rescues.



Bring all your paperwork with you, including a pet friendly lease if applicable.

Pre-screening does not guarantee you to adopt any dog. Each rescue will decide the best fit for you and the dog and some rescues may wish to do a home visit before completing an adoption.

M.A. has extra quarantine regulations, so MA residents will have to wait a couple of days before they can bring their doggie home and pay MA's  boarding fee.



If there are several applications for the same dog, the rescue will choose the best fit for the dog. If you find a dog you want to adopt remember to ask if there are any other people who have applied to adopt him.

Even if you do not apply ahead of time you will still be able to look at all the dogs and start your application on the day of the event. The rescue will process the application shortly after the event.
