Adoption Process


Adoption application

Phone interview


Home visit


All the steps above will ensure that you are able to care for a dog. They will also help you find the most compatible dog for you, and help minimize the risk of mismatching a dog.

We will do everything possible to ensure that the adoption process is a smooth one.

Here is what you can expect:


-Once we receive your application, we will send you an e-mail acknowledging receipt of the application.

-We will request a telephone interview to discuss the application. 


If you have not heard anything about your application two weeks (14 days) after applying, please e-mail us at

-Once you have completed the interview, we will check references.  

Please contact your references to let them know in advance of our call. Our volunteers use our own phones to make the calls, and are therefore not identified as Voz Animal Mexico.

– Once references are checked, you will move into the home visit stage. We understand that this can be  tricky to schedule, but it is necessary to ensure the safety of the dog. In some cases, there will be instances where photos, or a virtual visit of your home may be done instead of an actual home visit.

-After the home visit, you will be told whether or not your application to adopt a rescue dog was successful.

– If all goes well with the meet and greet and it is determined that you are the best fit for the dog, you will be sent an adoption agreement to complete and sign.

-The adoption fee is requested at this time, and must be received before picking up the dog.

Once you adopt your dog, they will need time to adjust to your home and their new family. Over time, the dog will begin to trust you, and feel more supported. Please remember to be patient and ease into introductions to new people, animals, and  places. Overall, this will all help you and your dog have a healthy and positive relationship together.
