We put the welfare of our rescues before anything else and therefore have a process we follow to be sure the dog gets his perfect home. Listed below are some guidelines to familiarize you with our adoption process: We have at times had an overwhelming amount of applications.  Please  be patient

You must be 21 years of age.

Please fill out and submit an Application for Adoption so we can learn more about you and your family.  A $25 check for processing must be included with the application. This amount is deducted from the adoption fee if approved. The application fee is not refundable should you not adopt after our volunteers contact you and/or your references.

After your application is received, you will be interviewed. A volunteer will call your references and veterinarian.  A home visit will be scheduled if possible. You will be notified if your application has or has not been approved.

After approval, arrangements will then be made for you to contact the foster family and meet the dog. We do not ship dogs. You will have to travel to where that dog is being fostered which is usually near Cleveland, Ohio. If all goes well meeting your new furbaby a signed contract of adoption is necessary. In this contract you will agree that if, for any reason, you decide not to keep your rescue, the rescue will be returned to Freedom Rescue. We do not give refunds.  If applicable, a spay/neuter agreement is signed.  A deposit of $100 which is refunded when proof of spay/neuter is given is also required.

Our adoption donation varies. The donation is used only to cover the 
expenses such as costs to obtain the dog, vet visits, vaccinations, heart
worm and rabies testing, spay/neuter if age specific and a health 
certificate fo travel, etc. This is necessary to enable Freedom Rescue 
to save other animals in need. 100% of funds collected are used for 
rescuing and helping our rescued animals. 

We wish you good luck in your search for a new companion to enrich 
your life.

If any of our furbabies' have stolen your heart, please complete the adoption application below.
We look forward to hearing from  you!
