Hand Me Down Dobes, Adoption Application
Adoption Application

Thank you for your interest in Hand Me Down Dobes!

We are currently accepting applications in most of Ohio, and the bordering areas of Michigan, West Virginia, Northern Kentucky, Northwest Pennsylvania, and Indiana. This limited area is due to our requirement for one of our qualified volunteers to perform a visit in your home as part of the adoption process.

Generally, it is the policy of HMDD, not to place a dog with a family who have children under the age of eight, but we do consider each application on a case by case basis. Although not required, a physical fence is always the safest and most desirable. If an applicant has underground/invisible type fencing or no fence, they will not necessarily be approved for all dogs.

You must complete the application below for the adoption process to move forward.

If you'd prefer a hard-copy application, download the application by clicking HERE, print it, complete it, and mail it to the following address:
Hand Me Down Dobes, P.O. Box 12325, Columbus, OH 43212-0325
Or fax to: 1-844-325-0446

Please list ages and gender of children living in or regularly visiting the home. If visiting please note how often.
