Steps to Adoption

  1. Visit us at an adoption event or on-line at www.boxersandbuddies.com  
  2. Fill out an adoption application
  3. Get a letter of permission from your landlord or homeowner
  4. A volunteer will call you to review your application and the photos and videos of your enclosure
  5. Once you've found your new family member, a volunteer will schedule a home check to make sure it's an appropriate and safe environment.
