How to Adopt

  • Adopting A Rescue Vizsla

Thank you for your interest in supporting Breed Rescue.  To become eligible for a Rescue Vizsla you will need to fill out our SCVC Rescue Application form for review and follow-up with an In-Person and/or Phone Interview; followed by a Home Visit.  Once we have approved you as a potential home, we will add you to our wait list of prospective homes. When a Vizsla Rescue comes into the organization we will evaluate our approved applicants and try to match up the Vizsla to the most suitable home.  Once a match is found we will contact you to arrange for a meeting between you and the Vizsla (often this is done at the foster home of the dog).

If you would like to proceed with adopting the dog, we will have you sign an Adoption Agreement and give a minimum donation to the SCVC Rescue Fund of $350 or more (senior dogs over 7 years are often less).

This donation is applied to expenses generated in re-homing Vizslas. Some of our Rescue Vizslas, particularly those who have been neglected or abused, drain the Rescue Funds because of necessary expenses for surgery, inoculations, and altering, or long-term foster care during rehabilitation.  On the other hand, a Vizsla adopted out of the homes of responsible owners may cost the Rescue Fund only minor expenses (copying, printing, and mailing expenses).

We ask that your donation be based on your financial situation, so that all homeless Vizslas can be helped through Breed Rescue. Generous donations will help us to carry on our rescue work and will be gratefully accepted.
