Due to COVID-19, shelters need foster and adoptive homes now more than ever. If you can open your home, please take our Adopter Survey. If a dog you match with is available for foster, it is noted on the dog’s profile.

Every dog is different and so is every person looking to adopt a dog. The How I Met My Dog survey will custom match you, based on behavior and lifestyle compatibility. Now the dog you fall in love with will be a dog you can truly live with.
