Dog People of Oahu's adoption process is designed to ensure that all dogs are safe, taken care of and loved.
1. APPLICATION – All applications must be filled out completely. Incomplete applications will be declined immediately. PLEASE CONTACT OUR FACEBOOK PAGE MESSENGER AFTER APPLYING:
If not, your application will be dismissed.
2. APPROVAL – An adoption coordinator will be in touch within a week. The application will be approved or declined. It can be declined for many reasons. At this time, we will discuss which dog/puppy is the best fit for your lifestyle and home and to schedule a pick up time.
3. Pick Up Day! - You must come pick up your puppy/dog. A ONE week trial run (minimum) must be completed. The dog/puppy will be staying with the potential adopters. At this time, the family will be deciding if they would like to adopt or not. A NON-REFUNDABLE DEPOSIT (half of the adoption fee) WILL BE MADE AT THIS TIME. At this moment, the health and temperament of the puppy/dog will be disclosed, but we will not be releasing any paperwork.
4. Finalizing - Adoption papers are signed, medical records of the dog/puppy will be released to the adopters, and the rest of the adoption fee MUST be paid.
All dogs and puppies are neutered/spayed, microchipped, vaccinated, dewormed, given heartworm, tick and flea prevention, and tested for heartworm and other suspected illness or diseases when needed prior to adoption.
Puppies (8 weeks to 6 months) = $260
Adult Dogs = $180
All our adoptable dogs are posted every Monday on our Facebook page!
Adopting a New Furry Family Member
Welcoming a new furry family member is an exciting event for everyone in the family. However, it takes time for your new puppy or dog to get acclimated to their new home and new family members - both human and animal. It is important for everyone to give their new family member time to adjust. It takes about 3 months for your new pup to feel comfortable. Give it time! and support your new best friend!
