Submitting an application is the first step toward adoption. If you’re interested in a specific dog or dogs, be sure to indicate which ones on the application by name. If you submitted an application, but found a new companion from different source, please let us know. We’re very committed to placing our dogs in loving homes so do our best to acknowledge applications in a timely manner so if you’ve submitted an application and haven’t heard from one of our Adoption Counselors within 48 hours, please email us at email@example.com or call (713) 513-7811.
There are several required fields on the form below that must be filled in before the application can be submitted and processed. And, all adopters must check the mandatory “I Agree” box at the end of the application.
Pre-adoption home visits are typically required and prospective adopters are asked a number of questions to ensure our dogs are placed with individuals and families that are a good fit for their personalities, and fit your lifestyle. We want their next home to be their last one.
Adoption fees generally run between $150 – $450 though there are exceptions. The fees are a donation that helps cover medical care provided to all of our dogs and when necessary includes sterilization (spaying/neutering), immunizations, heartworm testing and treatment when positive, dental work as required and a microchip. In short, if you adopt a dogs from MSRH, you can be assured that the dog is healthy and thoroughly vetted.
