Thank you for your interest in adopting a rescue dog! Please fill out the adoption application below.
This is the application for ARCTIC RESCUE SOUTHWEST, based in Alamogordo NM.
Our adoption process begins with you filling out our adoption application. Based on this baseline information and additional conversations with you about what you are looking for in a dog, we will help match you with the perfect dog.
You can expect to hear back from us in three business days regarding your application. We will notify you of any questions we may have and work with you to find a time to conduct a home visit.
We want to make sure that your home is the perfect fit for one of our dogs and vice versa. We want all members of the family to be happy and well matched with each-other.
Our adoption process typically takes about a week, although we do try to work with people wanting to adopt a dog faster, or families who want to take their time finding the perfect family member!
We ask for a minimum adoption donation of $250 for adult dogs (altered dogs over 5 months of age) and $325 for puppies (younger than 5 months and unaltered) and $175 for our special needs or senior dogs (dogs over 9 years of age).
