Interested in adopting from Thank Dog I Am Out but have some lingering questions?

These are the most frequently asked questions that we receive in regards to our adoption process. If you have any further questions, please feel free to email us at for more information.

How long is the adoption process?
The actual adoption process is very simple and quick. Just fill out our online application form, save it to your computer, and send it to A Thank Dog I Am Out representative will contact you within 72 hours to complete the process and schedule a home check appointment. Once approved, your adoption application is good for one year from the date of approval. You are not obligated to adopt a dog at any of our events until you find the right one.

Are there any health issues I should worry about?
All the dogs have been vetted. They come spayed or neutered, micro-chipped, with current rabies shots and an International Health Certificate. We have worked very hard to bring up healthy dogs. It is advised to give your rescue a week or so to decompress and then take your new family member to a vet to be sure he or she is in good health.

Does the adopter get a record of their dog’s shots?
All the dogs will leave with a record of their shots and their proof of spay or neuter.
