We have two ways to adopt a dog:
- Foster to adopt. You are permitted to take the dog home for a trial visit of up to one week (longer if necessary is also possible). This will help you determine if you and the dog are the right match. If yes, then the following weekend you can finalize the adoption. If no, then you return the dog to us at any of our adoption locations and you are welcome to try a different dog. You will need to complete the necessary paperwork and pay a $100 fee (cash,check, or credit card). This fee is non-refundable, and will be applied to the adoption fee if you decide to finalize the adoption. This fee is also transferable and can be applied to a different dog if the first dog doesn't suit you and your family. Sweet Dream House Rescue holds adoption events every Saturday and Sunday from 12:00 to 5:00 at the Newport PetSmart (156 Pavilion Parkway Newport, Kentucky), and every Saturday from 12:00 to 5:00 at the Eastgate PetSmart (650 Eastgate South Dr., Cincinnati).
- Outright Adoption. If you're sure you've found the right dog, you complete the necessary paperwork, pay the adoption fee in full (cash, check, or credit card only) and take the dog home. You receive all the dog's health records that we have available to us.
Our adoption fee is $225 for most dogs, $300 for puppies. Cats are $80 and kittens under 6 months are $100.
- Dog/Puppy Fee INCLUDES: spay/neuter surgery, parvo/distemper vaccine, bordatella vaccine, rabies vaccine (for dogs over 6 months), deworming, microchip, flea and tick protection, heartworm testing (for dogs over 6 months), and monthly heartworm protection until the dog gets adopted.
- Cat/Kitten Fee INCLUDES: spay/neuter surgery, fiv testing (all cats are fiv negative), fiv/felv vaccines, rabies vaccine, deworming, microchip, and flea and tick protection.
