Adopt

It’s easy to adopt!

A little face has stolen your heart. The first thing to do is contact us by phone or email and let us know which angel you are interested in adopting. We do have a mandatory adoption application that EVERY potential adopter must complete. To request an adoption application, please contact our adoption coordinator, Meryl Alexander (meryl@thesatoproject.com).

Once we have approved you for adoption then we can begin the logistics of getting your new family member to you. So check our available dogs now or follow our Facebook/Twitter pages to get the latest news on our rescues, and meet your new best friend soon!

Testimonials

I would like to thank The Sato Project for the work they do in saving the lives of these precious pups.  Thanks to Chrissy, Meryl, Kari, Dave and Sherrie for saving my guys and making me smile.  When I sit on the couch and my 3 dogs all jump up and lay belly up with their tails wagging my heart soars.  It was so simple to bring them home.  All I had to do was fall in love and they did the rest“. (from Barbara, adopted Chiquita and Toby)

FAQ

Q: I saw one of your dogs and fell in LOVE!! I want it NOW. What should I do?
A: The first thing any potential adopter has to do is fill out our adoption application. We are very serious about our procedure. We want to make sure our pups will get the perfect home for them. So download the form, and send it to Meryl, or get in touch with her directly. Once your application is approved, we will work (fast) to get your new friend to you.

Q: I haven’t found a particular dog I want to adopt yet, but I want to adopt one from you one day. Is it worth filling your application out now, or should I wait until I see the perfect dog?
A: Fill it out now! No need to wait. We will do all our background checks as soon as we can. That way, as soon as you see a dog you want to consider, things will move much faster.

Q: Can you cat test your dogs?
A: Unfortunately, we don’t have the resources for that. But a lot of our foster homes have cats, so we usually are able to get an idea on how good the dog is with cats.

Q: I saw you had a lot of puppies from the same litters. I was wondering if it was possible to adopt siblings, or if they are too much work.
A: We often have siblings, as puppies are often left on the beach by litters. Recently, we had Bobby and Bianca, two adorable puppies, adopted by one same family. This is what Lisa, their new mom, wrote to us: “You need to tell people who are considering getting just one siblings: there is no more wonderful an experience than getting two sibling dogs who have always been together.  They are no more trouble than just one and the enormous pleasure both you and the puppies get from having the two is incredible.  They puppies have a 24/7 playmate, companion, buddy and  security blanket and the owners have a world of fun watching, interacting, playing and loving two very special soul mates“.
