[Dogs available on this page are PETS and not service animals. Use this link you are interested in applying for a service dog.]
Our ADOPTABLES program has been extremely successful. Most of the dogs are spoken for before their training is even completed. If you are interested in adopting a dog through our program, please sign up on our Adoption Application page and we will advise those on our waiting list prior to posting dogs on social media sites or our website.
Domesti-PUPS is partnered with the Nebraska Correctional Center for Women in York (NCCW) and the Tecumseh State Correctional Institution (TSCI), to provide vocational training programs for inmates. Canines are selected from various area shelters or rescue groups and trained for 12 weeks by inmate handlers. Behavior management with shelter and rescue dogs is growing in popularity as these dogs have a greater potential of staying in their lifelong homes rather than being displaced due to behavior issues.
Each dog is hand selected and temperament tested. Then they receive 12 weeks of basic obedience training including the AKC Canine Good Citizen designation. The minimum adoption fee is $400 (plus tax), unless otherwise noted.
