Puppy Adoptions

Adopting Puppies

If you are interested in a puppy, there are two ways to adopt.  If you want dibs on puppies as soon as they are available, we recommend joining the Puppy Adoption Program.  In this program, you do not meet the puppy in advance. You choose your puppy based on a biography and pictures posted to a private Facebook group. If you see a puppy you like, you comment with your first and last name ONLY IF YOU ARE COMMITTED TO ADOPTING.  Our adoptions staff will send you instructions to complete the adoption contract and submit payment online. (Payment MUST be made online. We will not accept cash in person.) You would then pick up your puppy by the end of the next business day (4:30 pm). In order to qualify for the Puppy Adoption Program, you must complete an adoption application in advance.  The application can be found here: Adoption Application

If you want to meet your puppy in person, any puppies in the private Facebook group that are unclaimed 24 hours after posting are moved to the main adoption floor. Their posts will be deleted from the private Facebook group and the puppies instead are posted to our main website, friendshipapl.org. These puppies are available on a first-come, first-served basis to walk-in visitors, so applications will not be accepted in advance.

All puppies are spayed or neutered, have a microchip, at least their first round of shots and have been given flea and tick repellent and a general dewormer.   The adoption fee for a puppy is $250.
