How adoption through Dog World works

Put in your adoption deposit

A reservation deposit gets your spot on any waitlist, or the ability to get immediately approved for adoption if there is no waitlist. 100% of your deposit goes into the final cost of your puppy.

Meet your puppy concierge

Your Puppy Concierge will help guide you through every step of the process. They can help from the early stage, with questions about the breed, all the way to the final logistics such as transportation of your puppy.

Video or phone call with the shelter

Your adoption deposit immediately allows you to message shelters and to request a video call to ask final questions, and to see the dogs available for adoption.

Since the message portal is exclusive for users who have placed the adoption deposit, shelters can dedicate extra time and attention.

Receive your new best friend

Here comes the fun part! Your Puppy Concierge will help you organize transportation, and ensure you receive the necessary health documentation- so that you can relax and get ready to welcome your new family member.
