If interested in Thumbelina these are the steps:

1.  Please read her bio carefully to make sure she's the right dog for you and you meet the adoption requirements. 

2.  Fill out an adoption app from our website at the following link:

3.  If we think you may be a great match we'll contact you within 72 hours of receiving your application.    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.  We're very sorry and we're hoping this will change soon.  Lastly, our animals are in foster care---we're not an animal shelter so meet & greets are by invitation only.


Thank you for your interest, and have a nice day!
