Hello Everyone!

Pumpkin Spiced Latte season is over but I can offer you Pumpkin and Spice all year round. My name is Valerie but my mom calls me Pumpkin when I am a good girl and Spicy when I am not that great. Hehe. My pumpkin side ... I am very sweet, I love to snuggle, love my people, am crate trained, housebroken, love to play with other dogs, and do amazing at doggie daycare. Ohhh, did I mention snuggle? I will make you feel like you are the most important being in the whole planet. My Spice side ... sigh.... well I do love to play with other dogs but don't like to share my things at home with other dogs (I share with humans). I have a thing call resource guarding, so playdates (without toys or food) are ok but sharing my home with another dog is a no no... but who needs another dog when you have me? No one!!! I am so full of love that I will fill up your heart and your home with joy.

I am currently 7 months old and have been in KGARL since I was 2 months old. My foster momma says that I likely was separated from my siblings at a very young age because I was lacking manners, but we have worked through most of the issues ... except the no sharing with other dogs part ... ugh, I can't seem to control myself on that one. When I was a baby, I was very malnourished so I am still not ready to share my food and my toys. Oh! My foster momma says I am a very smart girl and enjoy learning new things. I am still an energetic puppy and need to keep learning a few things here and there, but I promise I am worth the effort. Everyone who meets me thinks that I am the cutest and sweetest thing!

If you are interested in adding me to your family, please visit our website and send an application online.

Adoption process

Once your application is received, the application process begins.  We will review your application, check your references, check with your vet (if there are other animals in the household), speak to a landlord (if you rent), and arrange for a home visit. 

Submitting an application does not guarantee a specific dog or cat.  We strive to match the personality and needs of our foster dogs and cats to a family who will best fulfill those needs.  If a family is not approved for a particular pet, it does not mean they will not be a good pet owner, it just means that their needs and the needs of the particular pet don’t match. We do not adopt on a “first come, first serve” basis. 

Please note that we do not do same day adoptions. If you are applying for a popular animal (such as puppies, small dogs, or special breeds), it can take 7-10 days for our volunteers to reach a decision that is best for the animal. We understand that it's difficult to wait, but please don't email us multiple times a day to check on the status of your application. We are a very small group and the same people that are reviewing your application are also replying to hundreds of emails and facebook messages. We are all volunteers and have full time jobs outside of KGARL, so any time spent replying to emails/messages is time we are not reviewing your application. 

Once your application is pre-approved (meaning, we don't see any red flags based on our preliminary review of your application), the applicant may be invited to meet their potential family member at a location convenient to the foster family (usually at the King George Petco).  Adoptions will NOT take place at the meet & greet, this is just a chance for us to get to know you and for you to spend time with our animals. After the meet and greet, we will ask that you spend some time thinking over your decision and we will do the same.

After the application review process is complete (meet & greet with animal, home visit, reference/vet checks, background check, etc.), if all is acceptable to both adopter and KGARL and we all agree to move forward, we will schedule a day/time to finalize the adoption. The adopter will be asked to sign the final paperwork and we will collect the adoption fee (cash, check, or paypal are all acceptable).  At this time, you can either pick up your pet, or schedule a time to do so. Adopters will be required to schedule an appointment with their veterinarian of choice within 10 days of taking your new pet home.
