Adoption Resources

Adopting a dog is a lifetime commitment.

 

LHK9 thoroughly screens each applicant and seeks to make the best fit for both the adopters and our dogs. Because our dogs are living in foster homes, we have a firm grasp on their needs, personalities, and activity levels. Before applying to adopt, we encourage you to put a lot of consideration into what you are looking for in your new pet and to be realistic in your expectations. With an open heart and an open mind, your rescue dog will be your new best friend.

ADOPTIVE FAMILIES FACEBOOK GROUP

 

Once you adopt a dog from us, you are part of the LHK9 family. We maintain a private Facebook group that serves as a digital community for our adoptive families. This group includes helpful information and is a great way to keep in-touch with other LHK9 adopters. If you have adopted a dog from us in the past and are not already a member of this group, please email postadoptions@lasthopek9.org to be invited.

AFTER ADOPTION

 

LHK9 wants your adoption experience with us to be a positive one. If you have any questions, we encourage you to first refer back your dog’s medical packet you received when you adopted your dog. Many common questions, such as “When is my dog due for his vaccinations?” can be found within this packet. You can also utilize the adoptive families Facebook group as a resources for dog-related recommendations, training tips, and other dog-related inquiries.

 

If you are experiencing issues related to your LHK9 dog that can’t be answered by reference the medical packet and/or Facebook group, please reach out to the Post Adoptions team at postadoptions@lasthopek9.org and they can point you in the right direction.

ADJUSTMENT PERIOD

 

Our #1 rule is to have patience. These dogs have been through a lot. There will always be an adjustment period as a dog to gets comfortable in a new home. Change can be stressful for dogs and for people, so it could take a few days to a few weeks for your rescue dog to feel fully settled in and comfortable in your home. As long as you are gentle, patient, and take time to bond with your dog, we promise that you will have an amazing and rewarding experience!
