How Our Adoption Process Works

Thank you for considering adopting your new best friend through B-Squad Dog Rescue! Dogs in our program reside in foster homes in the Sioux Falls, SD area. Our process is designed to match potential applicants and dogs to be set up for a lifetime of success! 

  1. Application and Review

    Potential adopters view our Available Dogs and complete an application for the dog(s) they are interested in. Adoption coordinators will process applications and reply to applicants within 2-5 business days of submission. All dogs in our program reside in foster homes throughout the Sioux Falls area.

  2. Home Visit

    An adoption coordinator will reach out to schedule either an onsite or virtual home visit. All family members must be home and present for this visit. Our adoption coordinator will talk with all members of the household about bringing home your new dog. Safety concerns may be addressed at that time as well.

  3. Meet and Greet

    All family members must be present for the meet. If you have other dogs in your home, they must also be present for the meet to ensure that everyone gets along. After a meet, you will have 24 hours to decide if you would like to continue with the process.

  4. Contracts & Payment

    Adoption information, invoice for the adoption fee, and the adoption contract will be emailed electronically to be completed.

  5. Go Home!

    An adoption confirmation email will be sent when everything is completed and approved for adoption.  The foster will contact the adopter at this time to coordinate the pick up of their new pet! 
    Your relationship with B-Squad Dog Rescue doesn’t end here… We’re always available to answer any questions, make training recommendations, and assist you in providing a home to your new dog!

Frequently Asked Questions

A:

Our adoption fees are non-negotiable. Our fees are determined by a variety of factors including the level of care required for each dog. The adoption fee includes the pet’s spay/neuter, dental (if needed), routine age-appropriate vaccinations, heartworm testing, parasite testing and/or deworming, and a microchip.
Adoption fees help us cover the cost of medical care, food, and other necessities while in foster care. By adopting from us, you are supporting our mission and helping us make a difference for other dogs in need.

A:

Yes. We do not have a radius that adopters must live in to adopt from us. Potential adopters must follow our adoption process and complete an onsite or virtual home visit and be willing to travel to Sioux Falls, SD to finalize an adoption in person. We do not transport or ship dogs.

A:

Our adoption requirements vary by the dog and are established for their safety. Dogs may require a home with a physically fenced in yard, another resident dog, or homes that do not have small children. Adoption requirements will be clearly posted on each dog’s individual profile. Items listed as being required are non-negotiable while items listed as being preferred have some flexibility based on individual situations.

A:

Welcoming a new dog into your home is a large commitment. We ask that before you apply to adopt a dog, you have a minimum of four weeks without utilizing any kind of boarding or pet-sitting service while your new dog adjusts to your home. We cannot hold dogs in rescue. Please only apply if you are able to welcome your new dog home within 7 days of completing an application.

A:

Applications are held on file for 6 months. We do not have the capacity to pre-approve applications at this time. Applications are only processed and approved for a specific dog as requirements for adoption vary by dog. Please email us if you would like to be considered for a dog not already listed on your application.
