Adopt a Siberian Husky
Siberian Huskies are not for everyone. That said, they make excellent family pets as long as their personality and activity level matches the family environment.
The Adoption Process
Please note that while our application process is long, it does help us decide if you are a good match for our dogs. Therefore, if you are not approved, please do not think we have decided that you would not be a good dog owner. Many times, it's just that we feel you would be better off with a different breed considering your current situation.
After you are approved for adoption and prior to handing a dog over to you, we will require that you agree to the following so please review these items BEFORE submitting an application:
Is a Siberian Husky the right dog for you?
If you are not familiar with the breed, please do your research because Siberian Huskies have many personality quirks that make them more of a challenge to own than other dogs. We recommend visiting these links:

Submit an adoption application
If you choose or prefer to fill out a paper application, please download this form sdf_adoption_application.pdf , print and complete it manually. You can then scan/email the form back to us.
We recommend working on a laptop to complete the application as there are several sections.
We process your application
We will check your references after which we will decide whether to continue with your application. We will schedule a home-check to ensure your home is suitable for a Siberian. During the visit, we will ensure that all family members are on board with adopting a Siberian Husky. We will also take this time to answer any questions you have about the breed or our adoption process and to discuss possible dogs that will match your lifestyle and living situation.
If/When your application is approved, we will schedule an appointment for you to meet individual dogs and decide which one is right for you!
