bonapartes retreatADOPTION


Our mission is to insure that all our rescued dogs are adopted into loving and permanent homes.  We thoroughly screen potential adopters and do all we can to insure that you adopt the right dog for your home, family, and lifestyle.  At Bonaparte’s Retreat Dog Rescue, our adoption process works like this:


  1. You complete and submit our easy online Adoption Application.
  2. Our director may contact you for additional information.
  3. If your application is accepted, we arrange for you to meet the dog you want to adopt.
  4. If you are still interested after meeting the dog, we arrange for a home visit with dog.


If you make the decision to adopt, a minimum three-week trial adoption period begins during which either you or we can change course and cancel the adoption decision. During the trial period, Bonaparte’s Retreat is committed to doing everything possible to assist you and your adopted dog with adjusting to a new home and living environment. Our adoption fees are $125, OR $75 for a senior dog or special needs dog. A senior dog is 7 years of age or older.


All our adoptable dogs have received vaccinations, been spayed or neutered, tested for heartworms and either treated or started on prevention, and are current on flea and tick prevention.


Because of our process, we regret that we are unable to do out-of-state adoptions.
