HIT Living's Adoption Process

At the HIT Living Foundation, we rescue domestic and international at risk puppies and dogs who have been through traumatic experiences such as having high medical needs or a life with out any human companionship. It is of the utmost importance to us our pups are placed with the right fur-ever home based on compatibility. We work with all applicants and assess lifestyle and living situations to make sure you're the right fit for the pup and the pup is the right fit for you/your family.

Once you've submitted your application, please allow 48 hours for review. If approved and we think it's a good match, we will move forward with a meet and greet where we urge you to bring your other dogs if applicable, followed by a home check. Once we are certain the dog is right for you and you are right for the dog, we will move to a foster to adopt program. There will then be a 7 day trial period to make sure the dog is the right fit in your home. If we collectively determine the dog is the right fit, we will ask at the end of the 7 days to finalize the adoption by signing an adoption contract and make it official.

Adoption/Donation Fees

Donation fees vary based on each puppy or dog and typically range from $200 - $500. These fees take into consideration age, training level, temperament, if they’re newly arrived, medical condition(s), if any, and other factors. The HIT Living Foundation provides spay / neutered, micro-chip and current on DHPP and Rabies Vaccines. Adoptions fees are used not only to rescue and place the dog you are personally adopting, but to aid in the future rescue and rehabilitation of other deserving dogs. Adoption fees are necessary; without fees, our rescue efforts would quickly come to an end.

The fee will be required up front and will be refunded if the dog is returned with in the 7 day trial period. If the dog is returned after the 7 days, there will be no refund issued. As a non-profit, heavily volunteer based operation, all proceeds go towards the rescue, medical care, sterilization, vaccination and boarding of the dogs.

*We reserve the right to deny an adoption applicant.
