Meet the Dogs
Brandy Sleddogs Rescue holds dog adoption fairs every FIRST-SECOND AND THIRD of the Month. To introduce people who are interested in adopting a dog to the many wonderful Huskies, Malamutes, and northern breed mixes we have. The fairs are held in different locations around of the BAY AREA,so please see the “Adoption Fair Schedule” to find out where and when one will be near your location. If you know which dog you are interested in, and can’t make the fair, you may make an appointment to meet the dog either at the foster home or kennel…depending on where the dog is located.
It’s a Family Affair
We find it important to include your entire family when meeting a potential dog you’re considering for your family. We also encourage you to bring your Whole Family to meet with a dog(s) you may like. His is especially important, because some of these dogs have had very difficult lives.
If you are considering adoption, We will ask you to fill out an adoption questionnaire.
Please Click on the ADOPTION ONLINE QUESTIONNAIRE Icon and just fill it out and after you fill it out just email it back to us. You may find some of the questions a little strange, but they are very important to us in helping you find the right dog. Many people are surprised by how rigorous we are when matching people to dogs, and even if you, and your family, are capable of taking care of these special dogs. The breed is known for being great escape artists, as well as very prey driven. They are NOT typical dogs. We want to try to make sure it is a good fit for you and the dog.
Once you have filled out a form, we will ask to do a home inspection. This is required of all potential adopters. We are primarily looking at your fence to see if it will possibly contain these high energy dogs. A six foot, very secure fence, or a kennel, is usually required. If you live in Apartment or a Condo if NO fence you would still be able to Adopt. If needed, we will ask you to repair the fence before we allow the dog to be brought to its new home. We also want to see where the dog will sleep, if you have items that need removing away from the fence (they use these as launching pads to get out), and we may recommend certain items in your home to be moved or removed, either for the dog’s health, or the protection of your property.
If you decide you want to adopt, and we have approved your home environment for a northern breed, you will be asked to fill out an Adoption Contract
Brandy Sleddogs Rescue reserve the right to refuse to adopt.

Why Would a Brandy Sleddogs Rescue Dog Need Medical Care?
Brandy Sleddogs Rescue will pull dogs from shelters with treatable medical conditions. We nurse them and get them the veterinary care they need while finding them homes. In recent times we have treated dogs for conditions ranging from torn knee ligaments, heart worm and hookworm, to broken bones and gunshot wounds.
Our adoption fee are $200.00-$400.00. Puppies are $600. Adoption fees go towards vaccinations, heartworm, spay/neutering, micro-chipping, and medical care if needed. Fees help with kenneling, food, collars, leashes, sometimes even toys, and possibly the use of a dog trainer to help with behavior problems. These fees all go towards helping the dogs. We are an all-volunteer organization, with no paid staff. You don’t get this kind of full service and care when “buying” a new dog. Your new dog will come to you altered, micro-chipped, and vaccinated. Now all you need to do is get ready to meet your new best “fur”ever friend.
Where Do Brandy Sleddogs Rescue Dogs Come From?
Most come from shelters. Realize, many of the local shelters are “kill” shelters; they euthanize the dogs that are not adopted or recovered quickly. We try to work with the shelters as much as possible, even putting dogs up on our site while still in the shelter.
We also sometimes have owner surrenders; people who can no longer keep their dog, for whatever reason. If at all possible, we encourage owners to keep the dogs with them while we try to find the dog a new home. This is less traumatic for the dog.
(All money collected from your adoption fee over and above costs will be put toward expenses for other wonderful dogs.)
