Begin your journey by learning how the NorthStar adoption process works. When submitting your application, please choose the name of the dog you are submitting an application for. Due to the unprecedented recent demand for adoptable dogs, if you are not interested in any of the particular dogs on this page, we strongly suggest submitting an application and choosing the “**No Specific Dog** option. An adoption coordinator will be in touch with you in order to determine what type of dog would best fit your needs and once your application is approved, you may gain access to dogs before they are listed here. NOTE: Processing of adoption applications is currently taking longer than usual. We are a 100% volunteer organization and are working as quickly as we can, and strive for frequent communication, so please be patient throughout the process. Your new friend is out there waiting for you!
Hold on just a doggone minute!
