In order to encourage people to rescue homeless dogs, the rescue experience ought to be as smooth and pleasant as possible. The screening process should be non-invasive and non-judgmental. The right dog is out there for every family and screening questions should be tailored to help identify the most compatible dog for that individual. The only absolute criteria for adoption that Dogs XL applies are:

·         Favorable vet check for current and previous pet owners

(No history of animal abuse or neglect, animals should be up to date on vaccinations and parasite preventatives and  animals should be spayed or neutered,unless there is a legitimate medical reason for the animal not to receive these services)

·         Adopter must have an open mind and willingness to learn
