Adopt a dog today dino rescue

This is Mort in his new home! This little guy was very malnourished and dehydrated when he was first found. He was incredibly skinny with many of his bones showing, but we were able to nurse him back to health.
Thank you, Stephanie Bailey, for adopting him and giving him such a loving home! It’s hard to put into words, just how amazing this picture is. The best of luck to you on your pup adventure!

Adopting a friend – we make it easy!!

Adoption Process:

Please contact us at for all inquiries, allowing a minimal of 24-48 hours response time and please note we require an questionnaire for adoptions. All applicants will be screened and home checked. DINO holds the right to deny any application they do not see fit for the best interest of the dog and the applicant.


  1. Complete and submit our adoption questionnaire.
  2. We will contact you within a day or two and get to work to find your ideal rescue dog.
  3. We will check your references.
  4. Our foster or a Dino representative will arrange a meeting with you (your family) and the dog you wish to adopt.
  5. A meet and greet with the dog will be arranged.
  6. A home check will be performed either by our foster or one of our adoptions home check team.
  7. Once we find the right rescue dog for you, we will provide a rescue contract and medical records. Our adoptions fees for puppies to adult dogs are $600. Adoptions fees may be reduced for senior dog

The adoption fee for a pet adopted from

What should I expect once I send in my application?

Our DINO adoption coordinators work hard to find wonderful homes for each dog. All applicants must go through our adoption process, to ensure that the end result is a happy and successful match, and that the new adopting family understands and has full disclosure on their dog.

DINO Rescue does not adopt on a first come – first serve basis, nor do we adopt dogs to be given as gifts to another family. We want each adoption to be permanent. The best suited applicant for each dog is chosen.

We understand that applying for a particular dog may be a very emotional event, with potential adopters becoming much attached to the dog they are looking at. Please know that we have both the best interest of the dog and the adopter at heart when making all placement decisions.

We are 100% volunteer based. It may take a day or two to respond to your application. Please do not be discouraged if you do not hear back from us right away. If the dog you are applying for is adopted, we will be happy to keep your approved application on file at your request, and watch for another dog on your behalf. Our dogs are fully vetted, micro-chipped, neutered or spayed. Upon adopting a dog the household has 10 business days to return the dog for a full refund (less $75 for administration).
