Tails of Hope Dog Rescue

Where every dog deserves a happy tail!
Adoption Application

    A few things to know before you submit the application: 

  • We  adopt to applicants that live outside 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 pups under 6 months of age will only be adopted to applicants that own at least one existing dog. Puppies get destructive, stressed more prone to separation anxiety and bored when left alone. Puppies also learn from another dog, which makes them a better adult dog. Many end up being put outside, taken to shelters or returned to us. This is in place for the benefit of the family and the puppy. 

In order to be considered for adoption the following requirements must be met. PLEASE do not submit the application if requirements are not met. It will be not go through and you will not be happy . Our requirements are in place for the safety and best interest of each dog.

  • Must be 25 years or older. 
  • If you have a yard, it must have a securely attached fence. Invisible fences are not approved. Invisible fences do not keep out other animals or people. Dogs more often then not run through them when they see another animal, and sadly many owners simply do not keep the collar on or check to insure it is working. 
  • All existing dogs in the home must be current on vaccinations and spayed/neutered.
  • If renting, you must have the consent of your landlord. They will be contacted to confirm.

We are all volunteers with jobs, families and of course dogs to care for, so please allow a minimum of 7-10 days from receipt of application for a volunteer to contact you. If you do not hear back after that time frame, please email us for a status on your application: tailsofhopedr@yahoo.com.
