Adopt a Dog & Available Dogs

Congratulations – you’ve decided to adopt a dog! You’re gaining a new friend and saving a precious life! It is easy to fall in love with one of our shelter dogs and we have many who would be happy to join your family. When you adopt from EASEL, your dog will have had spay / neuter surgery, a microchip implanted, a rabies vaccination (if at least four months old), and more.

Recognizing all puppies and dogs as well as their adoptive families have unique personalities, needs, lifestyles preferences, and preferred home environments, our experienced adoption counselors can share ideas about which residents would be best suited for you. EASEL Animal Rescue League is committed to helping you find your perfect match. (There’s more information on dog adoptions under our available canines photos below.)

Foster Dogs

Foster dogs and puppies live in private homes enjoying a lovely environment and lots of attention for a number of reasons. Sometimes they may be too young for adoption. Or, they are recovering from an illness or surgery, awaiting surrender paperwork, are a special rescue such as a “hurricane” rescue who needs to held for a time before they can be adopted, or a senior dog who does better in a home environment rather than a shelter. Or, we may nay need the valuable shelter space to take in new dogs.Foster dogs are just as special and worthy of a great life in a new home.

Included in the Adoption Fee

Spay or neuter surgery, microchip, physical exam, health evaluation, behavior assessment, distemper vaccination, rabies vaccination (if at least 4 months old), heartworm test (adults), de-worming treatment, if needed, follow-up vaccinations, and follow-up support.
