Adoption Application

Thank you for contacting Small Paws® Rescue! Our goal is to adopt loving Bichons, to responsible, loving, permanent homes. We would appreciate you filling out this form, so we may find out more about you and your family, for your sake and of COURSE, the dog's!

Please be sure to answer all of the required responses (designated by an * asterisk) or your application won't make it through to us.

The Small Paws® Rescue adoption fee for a dog under 8 years old is $250 which includes vaccinations, heartworm check, teeth cleaning (if needed) and altering (if over 6 months of age). The adoption fee for dogs over 8 years old is $200.

Due to recent changes in USDA regulations regarding all rescue organizations, Small Paws® Rescue will no longer be able to ship our Bichons directly to adopters.

We encourage you to look for a dog to adopt that is located within a distance that you would feel comfortable driving, to meet and pick up your new friend.

Small Paws® Rescue, as always, is committed to rescuing Bichons and placing them in loving homes.

If your application is received by our server, you'll receive an auto-responder letting you know it was received.
