Adopt, Don't Shop

Adoption Process

Adopting a dog is a huge life decision.  We want to be sure that you are ready to invite your new family member into your family for the rest of their lives.  We want to ensure that your family is the last stop on their journey.  The 1st step in the adoption process is doing the research to find out what kind of dog would be best suited for your lifestyle.  If you find one at Hank's Haven that you feel would be a good fit, then we invite you to fill out an application form and send it back to us.  Once we go over it, we will contact you to set up a meet and greet with your potential family member.  Please remember that this is the hardest part of the process, and can take time.  But we do what is in the best interest of the dogs, and nothing is ever rushed.  So please be patient with us, we promise the dogs are worth it!!!

All dogs come with up-to-date age-appropriate vaccines, spay/neuter, microchip, one month of pet insurance and any dogs adopted from a heartworm hotspot (Georgia) are provided with 3 months of heartworm prevention from the time they arrive in Canada. Since Georgia is a hotspot for heartworm, it’s imperative these dogs are kept on heartworm prevention for a minimum of one year post treatment or arrival. More details about this process will be discussed with adopters prior to adoption.
