If interested in Kelly these are the steps towards adoption:

1.  Read her bio carefully to make sure she's the right dog for you and you meet the adoption requirements (we don't want you wasting your time!).

2.  Fill out an adoption app from our website here:

3. We'll contact you if we think you and Kelly seem like a great match.    We're a very small volunteer-based rescue taking care of lots of animals so we don't have time to contact everyone who applies or respond to all inquires.
