The Dog Adoption Process
Thank you for your interest in adopting a rescue dog from All Mixed Up Dog Rescue (AMU). This application will assist us in finding you the right dog for your family and your lifestyle. Please note that we do not adopt out of the state of Colorado.
The adoption fee for our dogs is $250 which includes a veterinary health examination, up-to-date vaccinations, a microchip, dogs will be spayed or neutered, and heartworm tested. They will come with a dog collar and ID tag. Senior dog adoption fees will be posted separately for each dog.
You must be at least 25 years of age to adopt any of AMU’s available rescue dogs. If you feel you can offer the type of stable and responsible home we look for and are under the age of 25, you may submit your application and it will be taken under consideration.
The adopter understands that this is an application to adopt and part of the application process includes contacting your vet and personal references (please inform your references that we may be calling them). If you rent a home we will need the landlord name & phone number. If you rent within a complex, please provide us with the name of the complex and their management phone number. If you rent from an individual who owns a unit inside the complex, please also provide their information. If your application meets our requirements, we will contact you by phone to conduct an interview before making a final decision regarding your application. Please do not send emails regarding the status of your application.
We typically do not adopt to homes with children under 6 years of age. Homes with older children will be considered on an individual basis for each dog.
Please answer all questions with as much detail as possible; incomplete applications will not be reviewed. We know our application is long and detailed, but experience has shown that gathering more information significantly helps us find the right fit for your family. It takes us valuable time to process applications, and if you rush through the questions with yes and no answers and no descriptions, your application may be put on the bottom of the list to process.
