If you are considering adopting from SSMR, but do not see a dog that interests you, please consider filling out an adoption application and going through the approval process. That way, if a dog that matches your needs comes in, it can greatly expedite the adoption process. We often check with our list of approved homes when a dog first comes in to see if there is a potential match – and sometimes those dogs go straight to their new homes after their vet work is complete instead of going on the website. We update the available dogs weekly, so check back often.
