You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.
If you are interested in one of our dogs, please go to our website, http://www.orphandog.org. Many questions will be answered there. All Orphan Dogs are fostered in private homes by volunteers who graciously take time from work and home life to care for our orphans. We do not have a facility, and most dogs are transported to our scheduled Adoption Events!
Our van is limited on space and because of this sometimes dogs will get time off if the van is overfull. Other arrangements may be made for meeting a dog the dog if circumstances prevent you from being able to make it to events. Remember again though that volunteers foster dogs in their spare time so we encourage you to try to attend the events.
If you are local to Lake County, we do make arrangements to meet dogs here in town. However, please remember that most of our dogs have been in our shelters for weeks before we pull them. We take the dogs that have not been adopted yet. If you visit the shelter, you'll get the dog before I do! The fee there is far less as well.

Adoption Fee Details
Adoption Process: All animals are fostered in private homes. You may certainly come up to the main foster home, our orphanage, which is Karen's place, and arrangements can usually be made for visiting at most of the other foster homes. Karen's house is a bit out of the way, in-between Hopland and Lakeport, Ca and is on a long dirt road. It's a good road, and she drives it every day to get to work, but it's is narrow and slow. Availability for visiting the main orphanage at Karen's house changes thru out the year; she is a teacher and works regular hours Monday thru Friday. She can host a visit in the late afternoon/ evening. Saturdays we are all at adoption events. Sundays are good days for visiting as well. Summer and holiday hours are open. Feel free to call and come up for a visit after you apply. (We would like to know something about you before we invite you to our home.)
