Adoption Application

Note: If you have already applied and been approved to foster or adopt, there is no need to apply again! Email our adoptions team at

A note on our adoptions process during the COVID-19 pandemic:
Hearts & Bones is continuing to safely rescue dogs and place them with their forever homes. Our adopters and fosters are provided with the option of an in-person or virtual adoption meeting based on comfort level and vaccination status. We continue to ask that all participants wear a mask for any in-person interactions. We appreciate your patience as our team constantly works to adjust this new normal.

The adoption application allows us to find the best possible match for a dog and their future forever family. The decision to adopt a pet is an important one that we take seriously. Please take the time to read the questions and carefully complete this application. Please include full explanations with as much information as possible - this will help us with the review of your application, expediting the timeline. Incomplete applications can significantly delay the process.

Following the submission of your adoption application, you should receive a confirmation of application submission. Given the volume of applications we receive, we appreciate your patience while we review your application. If you have not heard from an HBR representative after 7 days, please email us at Please note that multiple emails will not result in a faster response.

One final note: we don't know breed mixes of our dogs (we list best guesses), so we cannot ever guarantee that a dog is hypoallergenic or allergy-friendly. Sorry!
