ADOPTION FEE 

All of our dogs are spayed/neutered, up to date on vaccines, microchipped, heart-worm tested and fecal tested. A lot of our huskies don't come to us in great shape, and therefore require several vet appointments to get them healthy and adoptable. We hope this helps you understand why we request this fee, and why we are always asking for donations! All dogs come with a martingale collar with a Husky Haven of Florida tag.

$425 – Purebred puppies up to 6 months
$375 – Mixed breed puppies up to 6 months

$375 – Purebred puppies 6 months to 1 year
$325 – Mixed breed puppies 6 months to 1 year

$325 – All dogs 1 to 8 years

ADOPTING FROM
HUSKY HAVEN OF FLORIDA

Thank you for considering adopting from Husky Haven of Florida. Each year we do our best to help as many huskies as possible find their furever home. To ensure we are pairing successfully, there are a few steps that must be done. Please read the following steps and our requirements below:

Step 1: Research the Breed, and Our Available Dogs

Our available Huskies are here. You may also find our adoptable dogs on PetFinder, Adopt a Pet, and RescueMe. We update our listings as soon as possible to keep the most current availability listed. However, due to timing and volunteer availability, updates may not happen immediately, so please allow at least 24 hours for the update to reflect on our website. 

Please note that we DO NOT HOLD DOGS. Also, we could have another applicant interested in the same dog you apply for. We do our best to find the best match for our dogs, and if the one you apply for is no longer available once you’re approved, then we will match you with one that we think would fit your family and lifestyle. 

Step 2: Complete an Adoption Application

The application is the best way to explain yourself and why you think a husky would be a good fit for you. We ask that you fill out our adoption application in it’s entirety. This will give us an opportunity to learn more about you and determine which husky might be a good fit, if any. If the requested husky is pending, or we feel is not the best match, this allows us an opportunity to suggest another one for you. 

Requirements: 

  • Current dog(s) must be spayed or neutered. All animals in home must be up to date on necessary vaccines (Rabies, DH2PP, and Bordatella).

  • Current dog(s) must be current on flea, tick, and heartworm preventative.

  • If you rent, please verify with your landlord a Husky and/or Malamute is allowed. We will verify. 

  • We do not require a fenced in yard, but it’s always a plus.

  • You must be 21, or older, to apply.

  • We don’t adopt to students as they tend have busy schedules, which results in not enough time for a husky.

  • Any dogs under 1 year of age must go to a home with another dog. 

  • We do not adopt purebred huskies under 1 year of age to anyone without proven husky experience. We also don’t adopt huskies to anyone without any dog experience.

  • Huskies have a high prey drive. We always consider this when placing a husky in their new home. 

* Please fill out the online application form, link above. 
** Submitting an application does not guarantee you will be approved for the dog you apply for. 
*** We reserve the right to refuse an applicant if, in our opinion, the home situation is not compatible with the needs of a husky.

 We are a 100% volunteer based organization, we work hard to process as fast as we can, but it may take up to 7 to 10 days to receive an initial response from us regarding your application. We appreciate your understanding and patience. The average time it takes to process an application from beginning to end is 2 to 3 weeks. Please fill out the application COMPLETELY. An incomplete application may cause delays in processing or may not be reviewed at all. 

Do we adopt outside of the state of Florida? We usually do not as the logistics can be too complicated. However, if the application is perfect for the dog, and we mean perfect, then it might be considered. We encourage you to connect with local shelters and rescues to save a life in your state. 

Step 3: Home Check

Applications that are qualified to be a good fit for a particular husky are subject to a home check by a volunteer of Husky Haven. Adopting a new husky into your home is a serious commitment and we want to ensure the dog you adopt will be a good fit within your home environment. How might they interact with the family members and/or other pets? Where will they stay when you're not home? Is your home and yard free of any possible dangers? How will they get exercise and how often? 

Step 4: Meet and Greet / Adoption

Once you have completed the home check, and have been approved to adopt, we will schedule a meet and greet with the foster of the husky you wish to adopt. In order to ensure that the best compatible husky is chosen, it is important that all household/family members, including other dogs, interact with the potential new member of your family before the adoption is finalized. That said, the adopter, their family members, and other dog(s) will drive to the foster home to meet the dog. If all goes well, you will be adopting your new husky right then and there, so please bring your own leash to the meet and greet!
