Adoption Info


Thank you for considering a Neuse River dog. 
The decision to place one of our dogs into an adoptive home is our most important work.  We do not operate on a first-come, first served basis.  Our goal is to find the absolute best forever homes for our dogs.  

You must be a resident of North Carolina to adopt one of our dogs.  If you live more than three hours from the Raleigh-Durham area, adopting from us will be challenging.  We do not do same day adoptions, nor do we allow our dogs to be transported by commercial aircraft.  You will have to travel to the Raleigh-Durham area - possibly multiple times - to visit with our dogs and their fosters.   

Our fosters, who understand the needs of the dog(s) in their care better than anyone, make the final placement decision.  You may be asked to provide videos and photos of your home and we may ask another rescue in your area to make a home visit for us.

Our application fee of $30 is non-refundable and we reserve the right to deny any application.  If you are interested in applying for a Neuse River dog, please click here.
