Adoption Application

PROCEDURE: Please be sure to provide as much information as possible on your adoption application to help us determine the best possible dog for you and your family. Our main goal is the successful and permanent placement of each and every dog we rescue into loving forever homes. Once we receive your application, we will review it and contact you to discuss finding a dog that is a great fit for your family. After your references are checked, a home visit will be scheduled with you.

ADOPTION FEES: $400 for puppies, $350 for dogs up to age 6, and $300 for senior dogs age 7+. All dogs adopted thru BarkVille Dog Rescue are spayed/neutered, fully vetted, and microchipped. BarkVille is located in Roswell, GA and our dogs are available for adoption in the Greater Atlanta Area. Applicants in surrounding states could potentially adopt a BarkVille dog if their application is approved, they live within 2-3 hours of the Greater Atlanta Area, and they are able to pick up their dog.
