Shar-Pei Rescue of Virginia uses the following guidelines and policies when processing applications. We thank you in advance for your understanding of our requirements.
- We adopt to homes on the east coast of the Unitied States (CT to FL) and some adjacent states including PA, WV, Eastern TN, and Eastern KY (other areas depending upon availability of volunteers for home visits and transportation). If you are not located in these areas, please inquire before submitting an application. We limit our adoption area because we must travel to the applicant‘s residence for a home visit and arrange for transportation of the dog to the applicant‘s home. We do not ship our dogs.
- We require that all animals in the home be spayed/neutered, up-to-date on vaccinations, and on heartworm preventative. We will contact your veterinarian to verify this information. Many veterinarians require permission to release information, so please let them know that we will be contacting them and provide the appropriate permission.
For additional details about our adoption process, please visit our FAQ page.
Application and Adoption Fees
Adopters, a non-refundable $10.00 application processing fee must be submitted with your application. This fee offsets application processing costs. Payment can be made via Paypal or check. Instructions will be provided on the application submission confirmation page. Please note that we cannot guarantee the availability of any dog on our website because we often have several applications being processed. If you are interested in only one specific dog, please inquire about the availability of the dog before applying.
There is an adoption fee of $300 for dogs under 7 years of age and $200 for dogs 7 and up. All dogs are spayed/neutered, up-to-date on vaccinations, and micro-chipped before leaving rescue. Entropion surgery is also done upon vet recommendation. Before the average rescue dog enters its adoptive home, an average of $400 - $1000 may have been spent for medical treatments & foster care. We care for each Pei as if it were our own pet.
