you're thinking about adopting a dog...

Where do you start?  What do you need to know?  What's the difference between a shelter and a rescue? Can you rescue a specific breed? and yes, you can adopt a puppy!


This page serves as a resource for those who want to or are considering adopting a dog in the SOMA community.  Because there can be so many unknowns and questions when adopting a dog, knowing what to expect from the adoption process can help you feel more prepared and less overwhelmed.

This page was created for the SOMA community by SOMA residents Kelly Conover, Christel Hyden,
Jennifer McManus and Sara Paddock
