Adoption Requirements

Before you spend the time filling out the Adoption application, please note  these requirements. If you do not meet the requirements please do not submit the applicantion and contact your local shelter to adopt a pet. 

  • Tails of Hope Dog Rescue will adopt to applicants who live outside of the Memphis area provided  one of our volunteers is available for the transport, fence check, home visit and proper introductions. Transport fee is based on mileage from Memphis. 

  • All yards must have a fence securely attached to the home with a door from the home leading directly into the yard . This is not required by apartment or condo dwellers. 

  • We do adopt to apartment, townhouse and condo residents, but please keep in mind not all dogs are a good fit for apartments.

  • For renters: please check with your property manager regarding breed and/or size limitations.  Please be sure to include property managements' name and contact information on your application

  • Please contact your vet and have a medical release on file.

  • Puppies (6 months & younger) will only be adopted to an applicant with at least one  existing dog.  This is to avoid a puppy becoming anxious, from destruction due to boredom, to help them learn from another dog thus lessening the chance of the puppy being returned.
