How to Adopt

A Doggie 4 You works to ensure each adoption is a success.  Our goal is to always ensure the pet you adopt is the best fit for your family.  Applications will be considered in the order in which they are received, but making the best fit is our highest priority.  

All of our dogs are spayed/neutered, microchipped, heartworm tested, given appropriate distemper/parvo, rabies and bordetella shots.     Our adoption fees start at $200.  Fees are based on the age, sex, breed and at times the vet bills associated with the dog.  The adoption fee on highly adoptable dogs will be higher.  Those fees help pay the vet services on less adoptable dogs that come in with high cost injuries or treatable illnesses.   Our adoption fees also include sales tax.  According to Texas law the fee is not  donation.

All of our dogs are protected for life.  If you adopt a dog from us and find that you can no longer care for the animal we will take it back.  We do ask that you give us two weeks notice so that we can arrange for a foster.

Our dogs are not to be used as guard dogs or left outside in a yard.  We reserve the right for a home visit prior to placement and we we do conduct random spot checks and have the right per our contract to pull a dog that is not in a healthy environment.  You are adopting a new member of the famil.  If you are looking for an outside yard dog or a dog to leave on a chain, we are not the organization you want to work with.

You will be contacted by a representative from A Doggie 4 You so that you may meet the animal you are interested in.  Please understand that you are not required to adopt the dog if you do not feel this is right situation for yourself or the dog.  That is why we have a 7 day clause in which you may return the dog for a full refund. After 7 days you may still return the dog but you will not receive a refund of the adoption fee.

We have the right to refuse/deny any adoption request when, after review of the application or interview we determine that our dog is not a good fit for the family or vice-versa.

Unfortunately we cannot offer any payment plan and cannot lower the price of our dogs for any reason.  Each dog incurs some for of a veterinary bill and substantial costs form maintenance during their foster period.  The cost of intake for dogs continues to rise and we must pay these costs to continue to rescue more dogs.
