FAQ

  • What is your adoption process?
    • The first step in our adoption process is to complete an application here.  We do our very best to respond to applicants within 3 - 4 days days of receipt of an application.  However, we are all volunteers, so sometimes it can take a bit longer depending on the volume of incoming applications The process typically takes no more than 1 week.  We do sometimes perform home visits as part of our adoption process. If your application is approved, we will schedule a meet and greet during our Saturday adoption event at the Perimeter PetSmart (128 Perimeter Center W, Atlanta, GA 30346). Applicants must be at least 21 years old.  

  • What are the adoption fees?
    • The typical adoption fees for dogs are below, though there are some exceptions on the fees, which will be noted in the write up provided for the dog.  The fee includes the shots up-to-date, spay/neuter, heartworm test, microchipping, deworming, and treatment of any known medical condition.
      • $275 for puppies under 6 months old
      • $250 for dogs 6 months - 7 years 
      • $150 for dogs 8 years and older 

  • Do you have a physical shelter?
    • No, all of our animals live in loving foster homes until they are adopted.   
   
  • How can I meet your dogs? 
    • Adoption events are held every Saturday at the Perimeter Petsmart (128 Perimeter Center W, Atlanta, GA 30346) from 12-2:00/2:30.   Please note that not every animal we have comes to every adoption event.  If you are interested in meeting a particular animal, please complete an adoption application to begin the adoption process.  You can email orphanannierescue@gmail.com with any questions.  Our dogs are not available to meet during the week, since they are all living in the homes of volunteers.

  • I am not ready to adopt now, but I am interested in a particular dog. Will you hold that dog for me until I am ready? 
    • We are unable to do this for a few reasons.  First, it is in the dog's best interest to get into their forever home as quickly as possible.  Also, we have a limited amount of space. When a dog gets adopted, that opens up a space in a foster home for us to save another dog in need. We recommend waiting to look for your new family member until you are ready to welcome one into your home.
