Adoption Process


So You Want To
Adopt Your New Best Friend

Thank you for your interest in rescuing a dog from Road to Freedom Rescue! We are excited to help you find a new best friend. Please remember, all of our dogs are survivors of living a life of homelessness, neglect, abuse, or living in a shelter. Our rescue dogs have been through a lot, so we are really committed to finding the very best forever home and happily ever after for each one of them.  If you are ready to open your heart and home we are here to help.

Our goal at Road To Freedom Rescue is to make the best adoption match taking into consideration the dog’s background and your family's needs. Every dog is different: personality, temperament, energy, comfort with kids and other animals, medical needs and more. We take all these factors into consideration when making a furever-home match. We are very careful about the placements we make. We do our best to match the right dog with the right adoptive home because we want this to be the dog's forever home.




We appreciate you wanting to add a rescue dog to your family. In order for us to find the right dog for you, we need you to submit an adoption application.



We will review your application upon receipt. If we have any questions or concerns, we will contact you for clarity.

Finding Your Dog


After the phone interview if we feel you are good candidate to adopt a rescue dog the search for your new fur baby will begin. We can discuss  dogs in our care that you are specifically interested  in or we can  discuss the  dogs  currently in our foster care program or the dogs who will be coming up for adoption soon. We will determine who may be a good fit for you and your family.

Home Visit


Once we determine the best potential fit for you a Road To Freedom Rescue representative will conduct a home visit. During the home visit, we look for potential hazards for the dog that the potential adopter may not have considered.

Meet & Greet


Once your home check is complete and approved we will schedule a time for a meet greet. This process is when a representative from Road To Freedom Rescue will meet you and all members of your household including your dogs that are part of your family. During the meet and greet we will determine if it is a good match for you and the dog.

Move Forward With Adoption


If it a good match you will sign the adoption agreement and pay the adoption fee. Then the best part happens. You take your new family home with you that day.
