NOTE: Please note that it will likely be at *least* a 3-4 week minimum before you hear back from us after submitting an adoption application. We typically accept for new applications for a period of 7 days or until 20 applications have been received for any newly available dog. After that time period, the applications are sent on to the foster family for review and that usually takes from at *least* a few days to a week to sort through the applications, etc. Most of our dogs receive several applications so this process does take some time, especially on dogs who are more popular for one reason or another. We do require phone interviews to be conducted between the foster family and potential adopters, vet reference checks and a home visit to be conducted for all potential adopters, if they are selected as the top choice applicant, which will also take time to complete. That being said, we do always let our applicants know if they are chosen or not.
IF you happen to not be chosen, please don't feel discouraged as, again, we usually get several applications for each dog, and sometimes it can be very difficult to choose just one adopter. In those cases, we usually offer to keep the applications for adoption on file for any future dogs that come into our rescue.
ALL adopters are required to come and pick up their adopted dogs in person from the dog's foster home (we do not ship any of our dogs). Please have road/driving transport plans in place to pick up an adopted dog before you apply! While we are not against adopters flying a foster dog in cabin on a commercial flight, please keep in mind that many are not good candidates for flying due to size and/or being a brachycephalic/short nosed breed.
If an adopter can not keep one of our grads, for any reason at all, at ANY point in time, they *must* be willing and able to return their adopted dog to his/her original foster home, despite distance and any costs that would be required to do so.

Rae was surrendered to SNAFU Rescue via breeder release. Her breeder wanted her to be
placed in a loving pet home to be spoiled and live out her life as a cherished pet!
Rae is a sweet, calm, loving, and cautious bully. She loves to cuddle, take naps, take more naps,
and be near her hoomans. Rae kept to herself when first coming into her foster home. She has
slowly been making progress and seems to be coming out of her shell more and more as time
passes. Her character is really starting to show. Rae is becoming interested in toys and other dog activities around the house. She would love to have a family who is home and around the house so she can snuggle, be lazy and have humans around to keep her happy! Rae is still working on potty training but is getting better every day. A regular, consistent schedule will help with her continued potty training in her new home. As with all our dogs, any adopter will need to be patient and willing to continue working on potty training.
Medically, Rae is in great health! She has been spayed, microchipped, updated on
vaccinations/deworming, and has been given a clean bill of health by our veterinarian!
Rae would do well in almost any type of home but since she is still working on potty training a
house with a fenced yard would be ideal for her and her new family, but it is not a requirement
for adoption. Rae currently sleeps in her crate during the night and during the daytime when her
foster family is at work. For her safety, we recommend that she keeps a similar crating/x-pen
schedule when her humans are away, and/or she is left unsupervised, so she is safe and secure.
Ultimately, Rae is the sweetest girl and will do great in a home that can give her the attention
and love she needs and deserves.
If you feel like your family might be the perfect forever home for Rae please submit an adoption
application for her today!!
