Adoption Application


Our primary form of contact with our adoption applicants is email, so please be sure to check your mailbox frequently for responses/information from us regarding your application.   

PLEASE remember to check your spam/junk folder as well.

--------------Thank you-CPCRN---------------


We are National

National, in this case, means we do NOT have a brick and mortar facility.  Instead our Board,

Officers, Volunteers and Foster Homes are located

all across the USA.




IMPORTANT:  As of 7/20/2020, if you applied to adopt a dog seven (7) years or younger, and a full terrier breed;  your application will not be processed , as we do not have any dogs that are in that category. Due to the high volume of applications and limited dogs in Col. Potter, we are forced to accept applications only for our long term fosters, i.e. senior dogs, dogs in our Mix It Up program, and/or dogs with ongoing medical issues.  If you apply for one of these dogs, we will process your application in a timely manner.  We have many, many homes who have been approved and are waiting for a younger dog and our volunteers are getting swamped and just cannot keep up with the volume. 

We also cannot accept any application from a Canadian home at this time due to the border being closed.  As soon as this pandemic is behind us, we will again open our applications to Canadian homes.  

If you submit an application you will receive an EMAIL confirmation of that app almost immediately. If you do not receive that email, we are sorry to say but your app did not submit (for any number of reasons), and you will have to resubmit.  Our website and application (forms) all work the same way and an email confirmation copy is always provided.  Thank you so much for your patience.  Make sure to check your SPAM folder.  Patience is the new normal.
