Before you come to see the dogs we strongly encourage you to complete an application. We do not adopt to anyone who has not submitted an application that has been reviewed by our screeners and approved to adopt. Your application will allow our volunteers to help you pick a dog that will be more likely to fit into your home.

You can apply in one of two ways, either using our own DRNT online application or via the Petango application, which loads directly into our database. Our screeners prefer you to use the DRNT form because it is tailored to our needs, but some people have had problems getting our online form to fill in correctly, particularly for telephone numbers, when applying using a cell phone. If you have trouble, just place the phone numbers in the text field near the end of the application. The other bug we know of is that sometimes it sends Alabama rather than Texas as your state of residence. Don't worry, we can tell where you live from your zip code.
