Application for Adoption

Before completing an application for adoption, please read the following.

1. Overview - All of Karuna Dogs are rescue dogs. Some have suffered neglect, abuse, and unimaginable horrors. All applicants should have a clear understanding that the dogs arriving overseas, are most likely going to require an adjustment period. Karuna team members have spent countless hours with these dogs, and will always guide and support during this time.

2. Application Approval - Once we recieve your application we will contact you. We need to ensure you and your future furry companion are the right fit. For eg. Some of our dogs, we do not recommend for families with small children. We will always outline this in each dog's bio.

3. Fees - To offer a dog for adoption, we have for the most part spent thousands of dollars in vet care, neuter/spay, rehab. and boarding. We ask all adopters to cover the transport cost, including paperwork, for their newly adopted dog. As we solely rely on flight volunteers, we are often at the mercy of the Airlines available, and flight costs vary. But as a ball park figure you could expect to pay between 600 to 650USD for a smaller dog. And 700 to 850USD for a larger dog. Karuna makes zero profit on any of their adoptions. We simply need to cover basic costs.
