Thank you for your interest in adopting a dog! Once you submit the application below, the process is as follows:

1. Your application will be processed by a Social Tees representative. It usually takes between 2 and 10 days for us to get to an application. Because we receive hundreds each week, we are unable to reach out to every applicant upon receipt of their application. If you have questions about the status of yours, please email apps@socialteesnyc.org

2. When processing your application, we will contact your landlord, veterinarian, and personal references. We may also contact you for further information and/or to schedule a home check. Please have patience while waiting for a response. We get mountains of emails each day, and we try as hard as we can to get to all of them in a timely fashion.

3. If approved, you will be notified by a Social Tees representative, and we’ll take it from there!


PLEASE NOTE: We are unable to place any animal on hold while any application is being processed. We sincerely appreciate your enthusiasm about welcoming a rescue pet into your family, but we receive many applications for each animal, and we process them all simultaneously and then choose the best match for each animal to the best of our ability. Thank you for understanding!
