  1. Fill out an adoption application. Return it online or print out and mail.

    Bite your nails and wait for SDRO to call. Just kidding! SDRO has a 24 hr response time, except on holidays.

  2. Let's talk about your dog and your lifestyle.

  3. Ready? Sign the Preliminary Adoption form and your 2 week trial begins. During this time, SDRO is available to answer your questions. We even have a no-cost-to-you certified dog trainer to advise you.

  4. Yippee! It's MY dog now! At the end of the trial period, sign the final agreement, pay your fee and celebrate.

    You'll receive all your dog's records, including how to transfer your dog's microchip information to you.
