Adoption Events

Adoption events are run by PRS volunteers and foster families. These events allow for PRS foster pups to meet and greet with people looking to adopt, and speak with the volunteers fostering the pups. Since the adoption application process takes about a week, families are not able to adopt impulsively at the event.

The fostering program runs concurrently with the adoption events and events are typically held about one week after transport. Events are held outside the main exchange and usually run for 3-4 hours. Because of the weather, adoption events as well as the fostering program only runs during the warmer months, typically late March through early October.

Because the adoption events are so vital to promoting a foster pup, we only schedule fostering if the foster care provider is able to attend the event. Adoption event dates are locked down before the pups are scheduled for transport, so foster care providers will be able to know in advance if fostering is possible for their schedule.

  • If you are interested in fostering, please visit our fostering page for more information. To apply, please send us your fostering pre-application.
