Guidelines for adopting

Rocket Dog Rescue is looking for responsible and caring people to give a Rocket Dog their much needed second chance at happiness. The following are just a few initial guidelines you should consider before deciding to adopt:

  • You must be at least 21 years old (We look for stable renters history.)
  • Some dogs will require private training before the adoption can be completed.
  • A home visit may be required.
  • The adoption fee is $280. All dogs are spayed/neutered, UTD on shots & microchipped.
  • You must be allowed to have dogs where you live, and be able to show proof.
  • Must be in the greater Bay Area. We do not adopt out of state.


  • You must be over 25 years old to adopt a pitbull or pitbull terrier mix.
  • You must own your home or have written landlord permission stating you can have a “pitbull.”
  • Breed experience is a plus, or you need to have researched the breed and have a good knowledge.
  • Training is mandatory – and required as part of adoption.
  • Pay the adoption fee of $280.
