Congratulations on your decision to adopt and save a life from a shelter! We at Daniel’s Dream Dog Rescue believe that once you adopt from us you become part of our “family”. We will stay in contact with you long after your adoption has been completed so you stay a member of our “family”. Please complete all of the information on the following pages. Your application will be screened and someone from Daniel’s Dream Dog Rescue, Inc. will contact you. Our adoption donation is $300. This donation goes towards various costs pertaining to our rescues (vet visits, spay/neuter vaccines, etc.) but does cover the whole cost. Any additional donations are appreciated!
