This program allows adopters that may not be sure what breed, energy level, or size dog will fit into their home 10 days to spend with him or her and see if they are the perfect fit. What happens if it doesn't work out? That's ok. We understand it isn't always a perfect match. We give you a report card to fill out on the pet so that we have some much needed information to better pair them up next time and allow you to have a better idea of what kind of pet suits your lifestyle.
