Coveted Canines Rescue has a rigorous, tiered, application process to ensure that each dog is matched with the home that best meets its needs.


  1. Once Coveted Canines receives your application, the Adoptions Manager will be in touch with you via e-mail or phone to review your application and answer any questions you may have about the process or the dog. Please allow 24 – 36 hours for us to respond to your application.

  2.  Our adoption process requires a home visit and 3 completed references prior to adoption. We will want to set up a meet and greet between you and the dog at some point during your application process. Adoption events are a great place to meet our dogs (and the CCR team)!

  3.  If you are the successful applicant you will be notified by our Adoptions Manager via email and you will be connected with the foster parent to take home your new family member. The adoption contract, medical waiver and fee must be paid/completed before your new dog is picked up.
  4. If you are not the successful applicant but are pre-approved to adopt a dog from us you will be notified by our Adoptions Manager via email and encouraged to continue to look on our social media feeds ( and @covetedcanines on Instagram) for the next dog that interests you. You will already have completed a home study and references so your application will be ready to go for the next dog.

Please note that being pre-approved does not mean you'll automatically get to adopt the next dog that interests you. Pre-approved means we recognize you'd be a good dog owner, however we need to ensure that the dog is the right fit for you and your family.

Please note: we do not call applicants to discuss why they did not get chosen for a particular dog.
