**HPA! does NOT have dogs on-site for casual viewing/meeting. Please review the adoption process below to adopt a dog!**

How to adopt a dog:

  • Step One: Find the right dog for you
    • Scroll through our available pups below. Click on a dog you’re interested in learning more about. If you’re interested in adopting that dog, you can click the “apply for adoption” button on that dog’s page and fill out the application. Or, if you need help finding the perfect pup for you, you can fill out the general dog application! We will contact you within 24 hours of receiving your application. Completing an application neither guarantees nor binds you to an animal.
  • Step Two: Meet your potential new family member
  • Step Three: Fill out the contract and pay the adoption fee
    • Complete the adoption contract and pay the $150 adoption fee (which covers spay/neuter surgery, vaccinations, dewormer, microchip, and heart worm treatment if applicable)
  • Step Four: Take home your new best friend
    • Remember that it takes time for dogs to decompress and get used to their new environment! Be patient!
    • Send proof of a visit to your veterinarian within two weeks.
