ASK Cynthia!

What to expect after you fill out the application.....

After we receive your application, we will contact you if your application is approved. We schedule a home visit and a meet and greet with the approved applicant. After the home visit and the meet and greet, we will ask you for a 5 day trial before having you commit to the adoption so you can be sure the dog is a good fit in your household and give you a better idea of what to expect having a new family member. We ask this adoption process because all our rescue dogs came from life threatening situation. We would like to try our best for finding the best matching home for our rescue dogs.


Our Adoption Coordinator, Cynthia Dofton, or other coordinators will contact you after the completed adoption, offering continued support to the adopters. Cynthia has been a partner of DOGzHAUS founder, Yoko Furuno, and is a board member of the rescue. If you have any questions, concerns and issues after the adoption, Cynthia  and DOGzHAUS will try our best to find the best way to find a solution. Also, Cynthia would like to hear updates and see how happy you and your new dog are!! The adopter can feel free to contact Cynthia for advice and support.

Okay, so here is the first step. Let's fill out the adoption application below.

If you have any questions or would like to respond us, please EMAIL US to  We normally receive 100-150 emails a day and high volume phone calls. Unless it is an emergency call, we may not be able to call you back. Our volunteers work during the day and have a very limited time to visit the shelter, rescue dogs, give the vet treatment, provide a dog training and respond all messages. We try our best to respond your email within 48 hours.
