Adopting a dog is a serious responsibility and you should consider all the factors before adopting. In order to adopt a dog, dog rescue groups and shelters have to match you with the right dog. You fill out an adoption application and then interviewed. This is done to ensure that the dog and adopter will be compatible.

Lastly, you’ll pay an adoption fee; the adoption fee can range from $90 – $150 and it all goes to helping other dogs in need. Another way to help is by donating money or supplies, or by volunteering.
