Adoptable Dogs Program

Our Adoption Process


Thank you for filling out an application for one of our Career Change Dogs. An instructor will get back in touch with you within 48 hours. If you haven’t heard from us, please check your SPAM mail first before calling our office. We appreciate your interest in our program nd thank you for choosing rescue! It is our sincerest wish that any dog we rescue be placed in a loving home where he or she will be happy and nurtured. Please understand that filling out an application does not guarantee you will receive a dog. Our primary concern is to find the most appropriate home for each dog. In some cases, a yard check will need to be done by a representative of The Sam Simon Foundation prior to approving the application. We do require that all family members attend the appointment for the dog they are interested in adopting.

All decisions regarding an adoption application are within the sole discretion of The Sam Simon Foundation. In the event the dog is being mistreated and/or neglected, The Sam Simon Foundation, in their sole discretion, will have the right to remove the dog and place it in a new home. It is our goal that everyone is happy with the dog they have adopted and so we are committed to helping everyone through the adjustments of having their new family member. This includes a home delivery of every dog upon adoption so that each dog is transitioned more easily into a new home and a trainer is able to provide guidance to the new owner. Following adoption, we may elect to follow up with an in-home visit to answer any questions or concerns.Please note: Since all dogs are delivered to their new homes, we are unable to place dogs out of state. Thank you.
