We regret that New Rattitude has temporarily suspended most adoption applications due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Out of concern for the safety and well-being of our membership, other volunteers, potential adopters, and the public at large, New Rattitude supports full compliance with recommended social distancing, travel restrictions, and shelter-at-home orders across the country. This impacts our ability to safely carry out home visits, transports, and meet with prospective adopters, necessitating a moratorium on most adoptions, which will be in place until further notice.

In some circumstances, LOCAL adoptions may be possible. If you live in close proximity to a currently available dog, you may email adoption@newrattitude.org to indicate your interest in adoption and your location. You will then receive further instructions if we can safely process an application.

New Rattitude will continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation and will fully reopen our Adoption Department as soon as we feel able to do so safely. Please check back later.
