Though we realize people are well-intended, we do not allow our dogs to be adopted as gifts or surprises. This is because we want to make sure all parties are on board and understand the individual dog’s needs before taking on a lifelong commitment.

We believe a collar tied to an invitation for a meet-and-greet is an exciting way to surprise loved ones about a potential pet. Plus, this allows them to be part of the adoption process – which is half of the fun!
