APPLYING FOR A DOG | WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

  • An adoption application is required for each dog. If you’re interested in more than one dog, you must submit separate applications for each.
  • We only accept applications for dogs currently available for adoption (listed on the Available Dogs page). Please, no applications for dogs in our Foster Program.
  • You must live within 350mi of Dallas/Fort Worth to adopt one of our dogs.
  • You must be at least 21 years old to adopt one of our dogs.
  • You must be able to pickup the dog within 3 days of application approval.
  • The adopting family must complete their own adoption application. We do not accept applications for “gifts” or “surprise” adoptions.
  • Be detailed in your responses on the application. This helps paint the best picture about what life would be like for the pup. DRR works closely with our fosters and vets to best understand a dog’s personality, likes/dislikes, suggested ideal environment, and any ongoing medical care that may be needed.
