Adoption Application

You can submit an application directly through our Available Dogs page. After your application has been submitted we will be in contact with you within one business day.  If you are interested in a particular dog, just let us know which one and we can arrange a meet and greet at one of our adoption events each Saturday.  

Our goal is to place each dog into permanent and loving homes.  We will do our best to connect you with the dog that best compliments you and your family .  

Adoption Policies

  • We do not adopt to outdoor homes or to chained situations.
  • All adults in the home must be in agreement before adopting.
  • All owned cats and dogs must be up to date on vaccinations; medical history may be requested.

Our Promise

Our commitment does not end at adoption. If you have any questions or concerns years down the road, we will give you and your adopted companion ongoing support.  


Our adoption program runs on donations. Please consider donating directly to Anicira, or purchase something for our pets from our Amazon WishList.
