What is the process of adopting and getting the dog to me?

After submission of you application. A volunteer will process your application & be in contact with you. (read more about the time is takes here) Once you get through the initial application approval, you will have an interview with a Cane Corso Rescue, Inc. board member via phone or video chat. During this interview the board member will discuss the dogs available that would best matched with your family including any dogs you are interested in. There is a possibility at this stage that the dog you were initially interested may have been adopted or would not fit into your family and thusly the option to adopt another dog will be discussed or, if you wish, be put on a waitlist for a puppy.

The next step in the process is a home visit in which a CCR certified volunteer would visit the home and your family. This is to help with getting the dog prepared for your home. The volunteer will let us know of any concerns and we will help you correct anything before the dog placement.

Once this is done and we are ready to setup a transport of the dog to you, the adoption contract will be sent out for you to complete & eSign. The adoption donation must be paid in full or a payment plan must be setup and approved by a CCR board member.

A transport is then setup using a volunteer network to get the dog to you. We hope that you are willing to take part in the transport as sometimes the longer, cross-country trips can be difficult to coordinate.

Once you get your new dog into your home, make sure to read over the adoption workbook as this will have a lot of information to help get the dog settled in. We are always here to help and you can reach out to the board member that did your interview if you have any concerns.

When you are ready, you can fill out an adoption application here.
