Our Adoption Process in 4 Easy Steps

Step 1

Whether you’re looking for a cuddly puppy to raise, a high-energy adult to roam the outdoors with, or a seasoned senior that already knows the ropes, you’re sure to find a great match for you and your lifestyle among Ruff Patch’s dogs.

Step 2

Check out our available pets in person by visiting us at the PetSmart in Riverton at Mountain View Village during our adoption events from 1pm – 3pm on most Saturdays.

PetSmart address: 13296 S. Kestrel Range Rd, Riverton, UT 84096

Want a private meet-and-greet with an adoptable? Schedule one directly with the foster family after filling out an adoption application online.

Step 3

To learn more about a pet in our program, or get started on the adoption, you will need to fill out an adoption application.  Please allow 2 – 4 days for one of our volunteers to respond to your inquiry. 

You can also visit us at our adoption event at the Riverton PetSmart on most Saturdays from 1pm to 3pm.

If a decision is made to adopt a dog, an application and contact are filled out on site. In most cases, the application can be approved right away and the dog can be released to go home that day.

Step 4

Each of our rescue pets have their own adoption fee, ranging from $160 to $350. The amount depends on the specific dog and the needs he or she had while in our care. To find a dog’s adoption fee, take a look at their bio by clicking the link below. If you don’t see the adoption amount, or still have questions, feel free to contact us or visit us at one of our adoption events!

Besides your new best friend, every adoption also includes:

  • Spay / Neuter
  • Up-to-date vaccines and deworming (excludes rabies)
  • Microchip implantation and registration
  • A free wellness exam
  • Discounts and coupons for a variety of vendors

Microchip registration and paperwork is processed and emailed to the adopter the following business day.
