Adoption Event Announcement

We hold weekly adoption events and are excited to meet you! We always try to hold our events outdoors so please come prepared for the weather. We will have most of our adoptable dogs at our events but please check our website and social media often about the availability of specific dogs.

Outdoor events – dress appropriately

Because of the number of dogs and the ongoing pandemic, we aim to have all f our events OUTDOORS. Please dress appropriately for the weather. In the event of extreme weather, we will move the event to inside the facility and will communicate this through social media. For everyone’s safety, please plan to wear a mask indoors in accordance with current CDC guidelines.

Apply online before you arrive

Please submit an adoption application before you arrive. Note that any family wishing to adopt will need to have all family members present, including resident dogs. Visit our FAQs page for more information.

What dogs will be attending this adoption event?

Please head to our adoptable dogs page to see dogs currently available. Our newest arrivals will be added to this page as soon as possible. We will announce which dogs will be at this adoption event the day before but please understand that this list may change since pre-qualified adopters who are a match for a dog may have a scheduled meet and greet before the adoption event.

I’m pre-qualified and interested in a specific dog before the event – what should I do?

Pre-qualified adopters can email to submit their interest in an adoptable dog! Our team will do our best to connect with all interested applicants before the event.

What if I’m not pre-qualified to adopt with Dog Star? Can I still come to the event?

We highly recommend submitting an adoption application before the event, but we will have limited resources to process application at the event as well so yes, please come! Note that we may not be able to fully complete this process if we are unable to get in touch with your veterinarian (if appropriate), landlords (if appropriate) or references. If you’ve already submitted an application and haven’t heard back from us, check your email spam folder or email regarding the status of your application.

We look forward to meeting you and helping you find your new best furry friend! Thank you for choosing to adopt and not shop.
