Thank you for considering adopting one of our beautiful dogs. We appreciate you filling out this application and submitting it, but you do not have to do that prior to visiting with us at the Ranch! Visitors are always welcome at the Ranch, seven days a week from 10am to 5pm.
At some point if you find your perfect family member among our adoptable dogs, you will have to fill out an application, but you can come to the Ranch and visit with our dogs first and then fill out the application if that’s easier for you.
Please be aware that submitting an application DOES NOT secure a dog for adoption, or put one on hold.
If you decide to fill out the application prior to visiting the Ranch, please fill out the form below and we’ll be in contact with you as soon as possible.
NOTE: Once you have completed the application process below, you will receive a confirmation e-mail with the title “Thank you for submitting your adoption application”. You must receive this first so please check your spam folders. If you did NOT receive this you will need to re-submit your application.
Hope to see you soon!
If you are a service or veteran member of the U.S. military, you may be eligible for a reduced adoption fee and other valuable support and discounts through our partnership with Pets for Patriots. To get started, patriots can simply visit their website to qualify and apply. Once you receive your approval email, you can make an appointment to visit Big Dog Ranch Rescue to meet honorably adoptable pets (dogs two years or older, a dog weighing more than 40 pounds regardless of age, or a special needs dog). We also require that you fill out the Big Dog Ranch Rescue adoption application below, which we will keep on file while you wait to hear from Pets for Patriots.
