HOW TO ADOPT A SIBERIAN HUSKY FROM SOUTHERN SIBERIAN RESCUE
THANK YOU for your interest in our dogs. Our adoption process has been put in place to ensure the happiness and well-being of our foster dogs. Below is an explanation of our adoption process.
WE ARE CURRENTLY BEHIND IN PROCESSING APPLICATIONS SO PLEASE BE PATIENT WITH US AS WE GET CAUGHT UP. YOUR INTEREST IN OUR FOSTER DOGS IS VERY IMPORTANT TO US SO IF YOU DON'T HEAR FROM US IN 2 WEEKS, PLEASE FEEL FREE TO EMAIL US AT SOUTHERNSIBES@YAHOO.COM FOR AN UPDATE OR THE STATUS OF YOUR APPLICATION. THANK YOU IN ADVANCE FOR YOUR PATIENCE AND UNDERSTANDING.
Find out if a Siberian Husky is the right dog for you. If you are not familiar with the Siberian Husky, please do your research on the breed because Siberians have many personality quirks that make them more of a challenge to own than other dogs.
Fill out our online adoption application. Once we receive it, we will do your vet and personal references.
After we check your references and decide whether to continue with the application process, we will schedule a homecheck to make sure your home is suitable for a Siberian. The homecheck is done so that we have a visual of where our foster dog will live;
be sure that all family members are on board with adopting a Siberian Husky;
be sure that your house is Siberian proof and ready; to answer any questions you may have about the breed and/or our adoption process and t
o discuss possible foster dogs that will work with your lifestyle and living situation
. We do ask that all family members, or people living in the home, be available at the time of the
If or when your application is approved, we will schedule an appointment for you to meet individual dogs and decide which one is right for you!
Due to increasing veterinary costs, effective January 1, 2019, our adoption fee is $350. The adoption fee helps offset the costs of shelter fees, vaccinations, spay/neuter, heartworm preventative, flea and tick preventative, microchips, food and any other medical expenses and surgeries that need to be addressed with our foster dogs, i.e heartworm treatment, entropion, FHO's, tumor removal, x-rays, etc.
Siberian Huskies are not for everyone. One of the main reasons so many end up in shelters is that people adopt them for their beauty without realizing the large responsibility that comes with owning one. Therefore, if you are not approved, please don’t think we have decided you wouldn’t make a good dog owner. Many times, it’s just that we feel you would be better off with a different breed considering your current situation.
