Right Dog - Right Home

Placement: Families needing to find new homes for their dogs are asked to complete a courtesy listing agreement. After interview with the program coordinator dogs accepted for listing are advertised through the PAWS Petfinder™ account and other PAWS promotions. Potential adopters are referred to the owners for private placement. To be accepted for courtesy listing dogs must be: at least 6 months old, spayed or neutered, up to date on vaccinations, (DHLPPC & Rabies), clear of fleas, worms and ear mites, and reside in North Kitsap or on Bainbridge Island.

Contact Melissa at melissa@pawsbink.org for more information about courtesy listing a dog with PAWS.

Adoption: Adoptive families are interviewed to determine the most appropriate type of dog. The program coordinator then reviews available dogs from the PAWS courtesy listings, area rescue groups and shelters and provides guidance and advice to match families and dogs. Adoptions are completed by the rescue or shelter in posession of the dog. Contact Melissa at melissa@pawsbink.org today if you are thinking about adding a dog to your family.

Selecting the family dog should be a well-researched and carefully soul-searched activity. Are you and your family willing to make a 10 – 15 year commitment to this sentient being in sickness and in health, for richer and for poorer, for as long as all shall live?
