How Adoption Works

ASCZ prides itself on getting to know adopters and our rescue dogs.

We invite honesty during our discussions so we can find each and every dog their second chance success.

When a dog is adopted, ASCZ expects and requires that dogs will be kept indoors and be part of the family. We do not condone keeping a dog outside for extended periods of time unattended. We encourage all new dog owners to attend dog training classes as needed. ASCZ is happy to provide training referrals.

A New home

A dog will need time to decompress and acclimate to their new environment as they will be introduced to new people, animals and new routines. We encourage owners to proceed slowly with introductions and let their dog get comfortable in their own time with positive reinforcement, encouragement and patience. The adjustment time could take days to weeks to months depending on the personality of each dog and the home environment.

If an adopter chooses to surrender an ASCZ dog, they must be returned to the rescue. The dog cannot be surrendered to a shelter, given away or sold by the owner.

We are available and willing to take any questions about our process!
