Thank you so much for your interest in Lifeline Puppy Rescue's Virtual Adoption Lottery!
We appreciate your patience as we’ve had to alter our adoptions process as a response to COVID-19. Please read the whole step-by-step process on how the adoptions will be conducted:
- Pictures, videos, ID numbers, and a description of all available puppies will be posted on our Available Puppies page on Thursday at 1PM.
- On Thursday at 1PM, a Virtual Adoption Application Form will appear on this page.
- The Virtual Adoption Application Form will prompt you to fill in your interested puppy number. This does not put a hold on puppies or guarantee an adoption. This just better helps us with the process.
- There is a $5 non-refundable donation to enter into the lottery for Virtual Adoptions. This fee does not guarantee a puppy adoption. At this time, there is a high demand for people wanting to adopt and only a certain amount of rescue puppies. If you do not get selected for the lottery, but are interested in adopting another puppy a different weekend, you will have to resubmit an application.
- Only one form submission will be accepted at a time.
- On Friday at 1PM, the form will close. We will then randomly generate all of the forms and pull a select number to form a line for phone call appointments on Saturday.
- After 1PM on Friday, we will email you to let you know if you were selected for an appointment and what time we will call you on Saturday. Please be patient with us as it will take time to sort and contact interested adopters. We will also notify you if you were not selected.
- If you are selected for the lottery and are given an appointment time, we will give you a call on Saturday. We will discuss the available puppies that you are interested in adopting. If you want to adopt, you will select your puppy during this call, so BE PREPARED with the puppies you would like to adopt, read through their descriptions and look at all their photos and videos prior to our call.
- Due to the high volume of COVID-19 cases, the process for adopting puppies will be done VIRTUALLY. You will not be able to meet the puppies in person so we can help reduce the spread of the virus to our adopters, fosters, volunteers, and staff.
- We have asked fosters to gather photos, descriptions, and videos to accurately portray the puppies behaviors including if they get along with dogs, cats, or kids to better place them in homes.
- Once you have selected your puppy, we will send you a contract to fill out to guarentee your adoption. We will also have you pay the adoption fee through a link at this time.
- We will also e-mail you the Adoption Session Video, which goes over the contract and our adoption policies. It is REQUIRED to watch the video.
- Once you adopt virutally, we will schedule a pickup time at the rescue (15171 Riverdale Road, Brighton, CO 80602) on Sunday.
- You are REQUIRED to wear a mask during your pickup. Please bring your own mask as one will not be provided.
- You may only bring ONE other person with you during your pickup for a total of 2 people per group to protect the health and safety of adopters and staff. Others can come with you, but they must remain in your vehicle.
- We will give you the remaing paperwork and send your medical records to you at this time.
- Then, you can take home your forever friend!
To adopt a puppy from Lifeline you will need to complete a qualifying questionnaire and sign a contract. You must be over 18 to adopt a puppy. Average adoption fees range from $125 - $400; Cash, Visa, MasterCard only (sorry no checks are accepted).
All puppies have current shots, are spayed/neutered, microchipped and have been dewormed.
With every adoption, you will get:
- A Puppy that has been well-cared for by trained staff and volunteers at our shelter
- Free - Veterinary wellness exam at over 44 Vet Clinics
- Preliminary vaccinations. Please discuss an appropriate vaccination schedule during your free veterinary wellness exam with a participating veterinarian.
- Microchip identification implant
- Basic and advanced training referrals
All of these changes are to protect the health and safety of adopters, fosters, and staff. We appreciate your understanding as we try to safely bring together rescue puppies and loving adoptive families! Thank you!
