Adoption Process
The DRBC Adoption Process Overview
Click on the icon below to learn more about the different aspects of our process.  Please read all eight [8] sections prior to completing the application.

NOTE: During the Covid-19 Crisis the processing of applications is taking longer than normal.  Please know that DRBC will process every application received in the order in which we received it; however, we are staffed by volunteers and are limited by this. 

Once you have read ALL the sections in the Adoption Center fully and submitted an application, an email will automatically be generated confirming our receipt of your application.  Additional emails will follow as we begin to work your application, so please be prepared.

During the Covid-19 Crisis we are sending out bi-weekly updates on our progress through the list of applications received, so please be patient.

No one is happy about the danger Covid-19 presents, least of all DRBC.  This has hurt the rescue more than you can imagine, but we will continue on, helping and protecting dogs and urge you to stay safe until life someday returns to a more normalized state.

Thank you,
The DRBC Adoption Team
