1 Love 4 Animals places our dogs and cats in carefully screened homes. Excellent veterinary references are required if you have pets or have had pets in the last five years. We require a fenced yard (better underground fence systems accepted) but we do make exceptions if applicants live in townhouse communities with rules prohibiting dogs from running at large. All of our animals are fully vetted, spayed/neutered, vaccinated and assessed for temperament.

Our adoption counselors will process your application within 48 hours. You must complete our easy application (scroll down) before we can move forward with any adoption. 

Please understand 1 Love 4 Animals conducts home visits prior to adoptions so our volunteers must drive to applicants' homes. If you live outside of our adoption area (which is quite large) we may have trouble traveling to your home/city/state so we suggest you adopt from and support your local animal shelter or rescue. There are many great dogs and cats looking for their forever homes in shelters all across the country (unfortunately.)

“Max”  is smart, sassy, affectionate, alert, energetic and listens to commands. Great with other dogs. Cats? Who knows, but he shows a bit too much interest in Eliot the parrot.😊. He really wants to be someone’s special boy and he will not disappoint. He’d love to sleep on your bed. He is an excellent watch dog. He talks a lot and he smiles! Housebroken, but not perfect. Probably best with older kids as his mild mouthiness could be misinterpreted as an attempt to bite. He is not a biter! He loves to go for walkies. He is going to make someone a fantastic sidekick.
