Adoption Details 


Thank you for your interest in adopting through Nickel City Canine Rescue! Below you will find our application. Once received, we will begin processing it as quickly as possible. Our process includes checking your personal and veterinarian references, and a meet and greet if you have current pets. 

We do our best to respond to each email, inquiry, and application in a timely manner. Please be sure to monitor your email account and your phone to ensure we are able to contact you. Furthermore, please make sure your personal references, your veterinarian, and your landlord (if applicable) are aware that we will be calling to ensure no delays in processing your application. If you are concerned because you haven’t been contacted in a timely manner, please do feel free to follow up with us, check in, & let us that you are still interested!

*Currently we only adopt out within the Buffalo and Rochester, NY area.  We will considered processing applications outside that area if the family has no other pets in the home and is willing to come to Rochester for the Meet and Greet.  The rescue does not provide transport services to out of town adopters

If you have any questions or have trouble with the application, feel free to contact us at
