Do you wish that you could have a low-stress, private experience to find the puppy of your dreams? You can with VIP Adoptions! 

We’ll Help You Find the Perfect Match

With VIP Adoptions, you tell us what kind of puppy you are looking for and we will notify you if we rescue one that matches your description. We will then send you photos of puppies (before they are released to the public) that are right for you and if you fall in love, we will set up a private meet-and-greet.

You’ll Meet Your Potential Puppy in a Peaceful Environment

You will get a personal 15 minute meet-and-greet with up to 2 puppies that you are interested in. You can bring your dogs or friends or family to make sure your puppy fits in perfectly with your life. If that puppy is right for you, you will go through a 30 minute adoption session to learn all about your puppy’s background and our policies to prepare you to take your forever friend home!

You’ll Also Get all the Supplies You Need

Along with your personal meeting with your puppy, with the VIP Adoptions, you will get all that you need to take your puppy home without making a stop at the pet store. Your puppy will also have all that they need to go home with you. This includes:

  • A Puppy Starter Kit ($40 Value)
  • Collar
  • Leash
  • Portion of food we’ve been feeding your puppy
  • Food and water bowls
  • Rope toy
  • Squeaky toy
  • Shampoo 
  • Puppy training treats
  • A 36” Wire Crate with a divider perfect for potty training ($60 value)
  • A Free Wellness Exam
  • Free 30 Days of Pet Insurance (adopter must initiate policy)

Your puppy will also have all they need including:

  • Spay or neuter
  • Microchip
  • Up to date on preliminary vaccines
  • Medications including deworming, flea and tick treatment, and preventative medication

We’ll Be There for You Even After Adoptions

Our Adoption Specialist will make sure all is going well with your new forever friend. We can also help with training and daycare referrals and answer any questions you may have.

Enjoy relaxation with VIP Adoptions to help you get the most out of your experience to find your Very Important Puppy!


To sign up for the VIP experience, you will pay a $200 non-refundable deposit that will go towards your overall VIP adoption fee. When you’ve found your forever friend at the meet-and-greet, you will sit through an adoption session to learn all about your puppy and pay the rest of the VIP adoption experience fee ($200 deposit +$400 adoption fee + $400 VIP experience fee). Total fee is $1,000. 

  • No waiting 

  • No lines

  • No worries! 

*VIP Adoptions are only available for puppies not yet published on the Available Puppies page. Once a puppy is featured on the Available Puppies page, interested adopters will have to meet the puppy during regular adoption hours on a first come first serve basis. No exceptions.

Update: Rescue Adoptions and COVID-19


Information for adoptions can be found on the By-Appointment Adoptions Page and VIP Adoptions Page under the Adopt tab

According to the CDC, there is no evidence that animals play a significant role in spreading the virus that causes COVID-19 and the risk of animals spreading COVID-19 to humans is low.

There are still puppies that need our help. We are doing anything we can to save puppies from euthanasia during this trying time. Please consider donating to help us get these puppies out of high-kill shelters and support the puppies in our care.
