Meet and greet adoption events are held every Sunday from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm. We are located in the PetsMart in Crossgates Commons, 161 Washington Ave., Ext., Albany. Stop by to visit with our wonderful dogs, all waiting for their forever families!

Forever Home consists of a group of volunteers dedicated to matching the needs and personality of our dogs with your family. We are not in a hurry to adopt out our dogs; we want to make sure the match is perfect for everyone. All of the dogs in our rescue live in our homes with both the human and furry members of our families. Our adoption process begins with an application which can be found by clicking the above link. Please complete the form in full; the questions we ask help us understand what type of dog you are looking for. Incomplete applications will not be processed. We will contact your Veterinarian, so please make sure to call them to release your vet history to our volunteer. If you rent, the first call we will make will be to your landlord. After these checks are made, you will receive an e-mail inviting you to our next adoption event Albany, NY 12210, right to meet the dog(s) you are interested in. After we meet you at PetsMart, we will speak to your personal references and call you to schedule a home visit with the dog you are interested in adding to your family. All members of the family must be present at the time of the home visit. If at that time everyone, including the dog is comfortable with the visit, the adoption can take place. We ask for a minimum adoption donation of $250.00 to help us cover transportation and veterinary expenses incurred. All of our dogs are altered, up to date on their vaccines, microchipped, heartworm tested (age appropriate) and already receiving heartworm and flea and tick prevention before being adopted. ****Please note – we are only able to accept applications from locations within a 50 mile radius of the Albany International Airport**** Thank you for visiting our website and remember, rescue dogs are the best!
