Does Camp Barry have normal hours of operation?
No, we are an in home foster and everyone in our household works full time or has full time obligations. We schedule meet n greets, adoptions and events around our work schedule and the schedule of the puppies in our care.
Can I pick out a pup and adopt it the same day?
Usually not, we have strict guidelines that we follow for adoptions. We conduct a mandatory home check for each pup before the adoption can take place and often times those can not be scheduled the same day as a meet n greet. Also, if you do not own your home we will need to make contact with your landlord to make sure there are no breed or weight restrictions.
I wanted “insert puppy name here” but you adopted him/her out before I could schedule a home check or do what I needed to do to qualify for adoption...why?
Our pups are never adopted on a first come first serve basis. These puppies live in our home for weeks before they are ready for adoption so we get to know them and what they are looking for and need in a family to have their happily ever after.
Can I adopt a pup that is unaltered on a spay/neuter contract?
Yes, but not from us. We have strict guidelines that we follow for adoptions, it would be irresponsible of us to adopt out an unaltered pup. People move, phone numbers change and we sleep better at night knowing that when all this happens our adopted pup will not be contributing to the already overpopulated rescue pool.
What is your adoption fee?
All of our pups are adoptable through the Humane Society of Del Norte and the adoption fee is $100. Each pup has been spay/neutered, is up to date on age appropriate vaccinations (including rabies shot if old enough) and has been flea treated. All adoptions include a free well puppy check up with any of our local vets and we encourage you to take advantage of this to get your puppy established.
What happens if “insert reason here” and I can no longer keep or care for my puppy?
Please contact us! Most often we can bring the puppy/dog back into foster or help you with resources on rehoming the puppy/dog!
