Adoption Process


Countryside Animal Rescue (CAR) is a dedicated team with many years of experience working with all kinds of breeds of dogs.  The dogs in our program come from shelters or owners who can no longer care for them.  Some come from the streets of Mexico.

Each dog is carefully evaluated and vetted. We are with these dogs daily, working with them and learning more about them. When we feel they are ready for a new home they become available for adoption.

Please read our Before You Adopt Section below, then complete our Application.

Adoption Application:                  


Before You Adopt

Adopting a new pet is an exciting and lifelong commitment. Everything we do 

 at Countryside Animal Rescue prepares our pets for a successful adoption and a healthy, happy relationship for you and your new family member.

We want your experience with us to run smoothly and without any doubts.

Our goal is to place each of our Rescue dogs and puppies in the

best-fit home possible.

Here are tips to make that happen:

1.  Make sure your application is complete. We ask these questions for a reason. If you

     leave unanswered questions we cannot make a reasonable decision on your

     request to adopt a dog. Each question helps us get to know you and your family. A

     completed application is a sign of commitment.

2.  Please provide correct information. Be prepared to show a form of ID.

3.  We DO NOT ADOPT to anyone under 25 years of age.

4.  Please bring your current pet and your family to meet our dogs.

5.  We are open to the public on Saturday from 11am to 3pm.

     Tuesday – Friday – Please call to schedule an appointment to meet our


Adoption Process

   *  An Adoption Application must be completed.

  *  We may ask for proof of Landlord permission if you rent.

  *  Our Adoption Counselor will review your application, get to know you and       

      determine which dog will be a perfect match for your family.


  *  Adoption fees are paid when adoption is finalized.

  *  All adoption fees collected assist in the daily care and ongoing needs of

      our animals.

  *  We offer a Foster 2 Adopt program for various situations. For example, if you

      have another pet or children, we want to be sure everyone gets along. This two

      week program will give both you and your foster animal time to get to know each

      other and see if it is a compatible match. We will be checking in with you after

      the first week, and are available for support through the entire process. At the

       culmination of the two weeks,  you may choose to adopt the dog and the foster fee will

       be deducted from the adoption fee.

  *  In some cases, we may allow you to take a dog home before they have been

      spayed or neutered. We expect that you will cooperate with us to complete the

      surgery as soon as it can be scheduled. A Spay/Neuter Agreement must be

      signed when adoption is finalized.

  *  Our rescue operation is very small. We welcome the opportunity to schedule

      visits with you, especially if you are interested in adoption or volunteering with us

      (as a foster, at events, or onsite). 

  *  Our time is precious to us in caring for our animals. Please do your absolute best

      to honor the scheduled visit time, and try to limit the length of your visit.

​  *  The health of our dogs is of the utmost importance. All known previous medical

      findings are disclosed to potential adopters. We suggest scheduling an

      appointment with your veterinarian as soon as  possible after the adoption to

      start a relationship between your new dog and your vet.  All of our dogs are                adopted ‘as is’ and all future veterinary care is the responsibility of the adopter.

  *  Please understand that all adoptions are first-come-first-served for qualified       

      adopters, and that we are unable to hold dogs for potential adopters.
