Are You Ready?
Adopting an animal is a LIFELONG commitment. With proper care, most dogs can live 12 to 15 years which is a critical consideration before you adopt a pet. Applicants must be at least 21 years of age and currently employed.
Courtesy Cupid Adoption Process
NOTE: Visual breed identification in dogs is unreliable so for most of our adoptable Cupids we are only guessing at the predominant breed or breed mix. We think what is more important is to get to know each dog as an individual and then do our best to describe each of our adoptable Cupids based on their personality in order to determine if they will make a good companion based on your lifestyle. We don't like a dog to be "labeled." Dog behavior is not a breed thing exclusively. It is a complex mix of nature and nurture.

Courtesy Cupids are beloved pets that need to be re-homed because of varied circumstances. They are living with their current families, and are not part of the Canine Cupid foster system. Due to the third party nature of these courtesy postings, Canine Cupids makes no guarantee, and claims no knowledge as to the accuracy of the information provided regarding the pet and cannot be held liable for any misrepresentation or misunderstanding between the current owner and the applicant. Cupids processes the application and screens the references provided as a courtesy to the family surrendering the pet. Applicants must fill out the online application in order to be placed in contact with the surrendering family. We encourage both parties to ask many questions and have detailed conversations regarding the animal's age, health, behavior, background, schedules, eating habits, sleeping habits, play styles or anything else that may assist in making a good match between the surrendered pet and the applicant.
