Please understand that when you adopt a dog you are making a commitment to love and care for that dog for the duration of its lifetime. Some small poodles live to be 15-18 years old!

  • Be a U.S. citizen, 21 years of age or older, with a valid driver's license or other photo ID showing your present address.

  • Be able to verify that you may have a pet where you live if renting or if living with parents or someone else, and be able to show proof of pet deposit if your landlord requires one.

  • Provide the name, address and phone number of your current vet or the vet you will use should you be approved as an adopter.
