In Home Adoptions

Our Process

At Rescue Rovers our goal is to match the right dog to the right family. We take 3 to 4 applications on each dog and speak to all of them by telephone. Meet and greets are set with each family that seems like a good fit. If none of those applicants work out, we move on to the next applications in the queue. 
To start, fill out an application
here. If you are interested in a specific dog please be sure to list him or her on your application!
Once your application has been submitted it will be reviewed by a member of our apps team. Someone will reach out to you within 48 hours to let you know the status of your application.
Your approved application will then be sent to the foster family of the dog(s) you’d like to meet. They will be in touch within 48 hours. The foster family will choose the adopter they think is the best fit – usually the dog tells them!
If you are not chosen please don’t be discouraged! Our process is designed to benefit both dogs and humans! Your application is good for 6 months and we are happy to help you find another dog to love. If you see a dog you’d like to meet you can call our main line at 435-565-4031 or email

Event Adoptions

We have regular adoption events twice a month, as well as special events sporadically throughout the year. You can find our events advertised on our Facebook pageDogs adopted at events are available to go home the same day*. Adoption events are a great way to meet multiple dogs and see who will be the best fit for your family. Foster parents are often on hand to ask questions of.

Apply online before the event to help your adoption go as smoothly as possible. Bring all members of your family – especially the furry ones! It helps us make sure your new dog is a good fit.

*we reserve the right to require an in-home meet and greet or deny applications.

Adoption Fee

Our adoption fee helps us insure that every dog adopted through Rescue Rovers is prepared for their forever home. We vaccinate, spay/neuter, and microchip all of our dogs. Adoption cost varies by age.
Here at Rescue Rovers we believe training is important for all dogs, so we offer a $50 reimbursement of your adoption fee for any dog under 8. Email your training certificate to You save a little money and your puppy learns some valuable skills – everybody wins!

Captain Peanutbutter

Ahoy! I'm Captain Peanut Butter and I am looking for my forever family. I am about 5 years old and I weigh in at a delicate 70 lbs. I'm a mix of all the coolest breeds (obviously) but the best part about me is that I am the most loyal good boy you've ever met.

I love going on walks with my humans. And I also love napping with my humans. Honestly, I just want to be with my humans as much as possible. But that doesn't mean that I can't be away from my humans. I am quiet as can be in my kennel and I will go in without a fuss when asked. Plus I have never had an accident in the house!

A few other important things about me are that I need a human who understands that I don't really want to hang out with other dogs. I would also prefer a calm home with no little kids. Their fast movements make me nervous (so do fireworks and other really loud sounds).
I am a wonderful companion to the right person. If you think that could be you, apply to meet me at
