Please ensure that you have considered the above requirements prior to submitting your application. Our goal is to start processing your application promptly. Checking with your landlord and making sure that your fence is secure enough to contain a large breed dog will help us expedite the processing of this application.
We are completely staffed by volunteers who donate their time and resources to help get our dogs placed in the perfect home for them. A volunteer with a good working knowledge of every dogs personality and observed traits will be assigned to walk you through the selection process once your online application is received. That volunteer will take the time to listen to you and ask the right questions to understand the personality and activity level that best fits your families ideal match from our available dogs. We always have new dogs arriving that are not yet on our web page. Working directly with a volunteer that learns your needs and knows our dogs is a huge plus not often seen in rescue work.
We do not have the staff to reply to Facebook or email request from folks who have not already completed the below short application. Email and Facebook messaging is not the way to properly gather and exchange the information we need to ensure that you get the right pup for your family.
The Adoption Process Averages Two Weeks
Lani's is one of the most efficient German Shepherd Rescues around. You won't wait months to be approved to adopt from us. We pride ourselves on being engaged and efficient as we work as a team to process the incoming applications. The time from applying to meeting and being able to get your dog to date this year averaged 10 - 21 days. The time frame was even faster for those with flexible schedules who could meet with our staff right away. The biggest delays in processing applications are submitted applications that lack the required information. You will need the contact information for your current or last veterinarian. You will need to reach out to them and have them email you your pets medical records, even if you no longer have the pet. Most vet clinics are more than happy to email you a PDF of your records.
