Because of the difficult beginnings with which our
animals have been faced, it is our goal to find them a happy ending.
Not only do we not want them to end up back on the street, we want them
to have the loving home they so deserve. In order to provide this for
these animals, our adoption process consists of several easy but
• If you're interested in an animal, we'll ask that you fill out a
questionnaire, which we will review to ensure you and the dog you are
interested in adopting are a perfect match!
• Once that match has been made, we'll do a home inspection and then a
home delivery of the animal. Sometimes this can all take place within
the same day, however it usually happens within a couple of days. This
is due to the fact that we don't have enough volunteers to run
adoptions and do home checks all at once!
• There is generally no waiting period. However, Canine Crusaders
reserves the right to cancel the adoption process at any time if we
feel that the home situation or adoptive family has been
misrepresented, if all information was not given, or if we feel that
perhaps the dog is a better match with another family.
• Now that your pet is anxiously awaiting its new family, a $150.00
donation is required and you must sign the adoption contract agreement.
The donation covers spaying/neutering, kennel rent, vaccinations and
de-worming. The adoption fee goes to pay for all of the other animals
in our care, many of which come to us with injuries or medical
conditions that require treatment. Canine Crusades survives solely on
adoption donations and it is for this reason that the $150 donation is
• When you adopt a Canine Crusaders pet your new family
member will always be current on all vaccinations and of course be
neutered or spayed.
• We offer a two-week grace period for all dogs, at which time you may
receive a full refund of your money. Due to our lack of space and
volunteers, we will need you to continue to foster the animal until we
can find a suitable replacement home. At no time may you sell your
adopted pet, give him away to strangers, take him to the pound, give or
sell him to research, or euthanize him for anything other than a
terminal medical condition.
