Adoption Process:

Once your application has been recieved we will notify you of such. We do contact Veterinarians about pets you may have. We do not adopt dogs to "breeders" or families with unaltered animals. Some animals are special needs and their listings will reflect such. We ask that you respect any decision we make.  Once the applications is approved there is a meet & greet.

Beings our animals are in foster we will set up an appointment time to have the animal and your family meet!


After the application & Meet and greet, we do have an adoption fee of $125.00 for canines and $50.00 for felines, and contract. Our contract does state that at anytime for any reason the animal that you adopt cannot be rehomed. It must be returned to FHR.

All of our animals are altered, utd on vaccinations including rabies vaccination, we require you to keep these up to date.

We go through alot to save these furbabies and they steal our hearts immediatly, it seems like alot for a "pet", but we feel they deserve the best and its up to us to give them the best!

Foster Process:  

Fhr will provide all supplies and medical for foster animals. Food provided will be food fed to animal. If you need to feed fosters seperate from others we will be happy to provide crates for you. All vet visits must be approved by Director. If an emergency occurs please contact director first!

All veterinary visits, medications, testing etc MUST be approved by Director.

FHR will give all fosters 24 hour notice for meet and greet or vet appt. If arrangements must be made we will be happy to work around schedules.

All foster animals will be socialized outside of foster.

Canines are NOT to be left outside or housed outside.

Felines are to be litter box trained. We do not approve Inside/outside felines.

Fosters will not take in owner surrenders without Director permission. We prefer to save animals from Kill shelters. But will crosspost any speutered animals.

Any animal pulled from shelter will be approved. All animals pulled must have basic vaccinations and vetting. We are happy to pay the pull fee IF vetting is done.

We do not mind if you foster or transport for other rescues. Please clear this with each rescue as to not cause any conflict of intrests.

All fosters will feed rescue provided foods, any other foods will be at fosters expense.

Rescue does not provide a gas fund unless foster is willing to do a long haul transport.

We require all basic vetting before placement into foster. If animal is not altered an appointment will be set within the few days following. We will request animal not be allowed access to other animals while we await appointment. We ask that fosters (when available) transport their rescue animal to the veterinarian on as needed basis. Fosters are not requested to be in the exam room with fosters as it may cause undue stress for the animal.

We ask that fosters post pictures of their fosters so everyone can see their personality. However anyone interested in adopting must fill out an application and be approved by Director.Fosters do not have permission to interact with other rescues regarding placement of FHR dogs. 

If at anytime any foster is bitten or scratched contact the director IMMEDIATLY!!!

If an animal escapes contact director IMMEDIATLY!

Fosters must be 21 years of age or older. Volunteers that are under 21 should be under parental supervision. Volunteer must follow all rules and regulations of the rescue or event site.

For transport:

Each animal must be in a crate.. NO free riders.

When an animal is tagged NO PAWS ON GROUND. it means just that. animal in crate for duration.
