Adoption Process

To begin the adoption process, interested individuals or families are required to fill out our comprehensive Adoption Application Form. This form is available via out RightPaw page.  This helps us understand your preferences, living situation, and what you're looking for in a Sheepadoodle puppy. It also allows us to ensure that our puppies are placed in loving and suitable homes.

Review and Approval: Once we receive your Adoption Application Form, we will carefully review it. We may reach out to you for additional information or to clarify any details. This step helps us match the right puppy to the right home, ensuring a happy and harmonious companionship.

Deposit: After your application is approved, you will be required to place a deposit to secure your place on the waiting list for one of our puppies. The deposit is a commitment that you are ready to welcome a furry family member into your home. This $250 deposit is non-refundable but will be applied to the total adoption fee.  Should your situation change or you don't find the pup of your dreams you are most definitely able to transfer your deposit to a future litter. 

Waiting List and Notification: Our waiting list operates on a first-come, first-served basis. As litters become available, we will notify individuals on the waiting list in the order in which they placed their deposits. You will receive notification when a litter that matches your preferences becomes available.

Puppy Selection: Once notified, you will have the opportunity to select a puppy from the available litter. We encourage prospective owners to visit and interact with the puppies, helping you to choose the one that best matches your family's personality and needs.  Finding the absolute best homes for our pups is priority.  If a pup has particular needs we may exclude a pup from your choice. 

Final Adoption Agreement: After you've selected your puppy, we will provide you with a Final Adoption Agreement. This agreement outlines the terms and conditions of the adoption, including the adoption fee, spaying/neutering requirements, and our commitment to the puppy's health.

Bringing Your Puppy Home: Upon signing the Final Adoption Agreement and paying the adoption fee, you will be able to bring your new puppy home at 8 weeks of age.  We provide guidance on puppy care, training, and adjusting to your new family member to ensure a smooth transition.

Our aim is to make the adoption process as seamless and enjoyable as possible, and we are always available for support and guidance throughout your journey with your Serendipidoodle puppy.

Transport options:  We are able to help you organise puppy transport for our interstate and local buyers who are unable to travel or are too far away for this to be viable. We only allow air transportation for pups if we believe the road travel is too long.  Air transportation is faster and less stress for your new furry family member.  There are also road transportation options for the shorter trips.
