Big Love Animal Rescue will consider adoptive families in the Valley Village and surrounding areas only. This is simply due to logistics and distance of travel for our volunteers. Our goal is to make the best rescue match taking into consideration the dog's background and your family's needs. Every dog is different: personality, temperament, energy, comfort with kids and other animals, medical needs and more. We take all these factors into consideration when making a furever-home match. We are very careful about the placements we make. We do our best to match the right dog with the right adoptive home because we want this to be the pet's permanent home.
We appreciate you wanting to bring a dog into your home. In order for us to find the right pet for you, we need you to submit an adoption application.
We will review your application upon receipt. If we have any questions or concerns, we will contact you for clarity.
Once your application review is complete, a Big Love Animal Rescue volunteer will send you several interview questions to fill out. These questions and your answers will help us ensure that the pet you selected is the appropriate fit for you. These questions will also require you to submit a video of your home as part of our "virtual home visit" process.
Once approved to adopt, a volunteer will schedule a time for you and your family (including current dogs) to meet the Founder of the rescue and your chosen pet at our meet-and-greet location in the Valley. This meet and greet will ensure that all parties are happy with the match and also gives you a chance to ask the Founder any questions you may have.
If the Meet and Greet goes well, you will take your chosen pet home that same day for a short trial period (typically 3-5 days). You will be provided with a small amount of food, a leash, collar, and tag, as well as instructions for this period of time. During the trial period you will be sending us updates via text or email with photos to let us know how everything is going. At the end of the trial, if everything went well, we will send you a contract and payment information. Your dog will then be officially yours!
