We are happy to answer any questions you might have.  Here are the answers to a few of the questions we get asked a lot.

Frequently Asked Questions
Do I have to own my own home to adopt from jethro's?

No!  Renters may also adopt from us, but you will be required to furnish a letter from your landlord stating that you may adopt a dog and what restrictions are required.

How much does it cost to adopt from jethro's happy hounds haven?

Adoption fees are $350.  This includes spay/neuter, vaccinations, and training.

Do all dogs get trained at the Happy Hounds Prison Dog Program?

No. Dogs are trained both at the prison and at Jethro’s Happy Hounds Haven.  

Can I train my dog myself?

Absolutely!  We believe that training your own dog will allow you to build a stronger bond with your dog.

Do I have to wait until my dog has completed its training to take it home?

That answer depends upon the dog and the home it is going to.  Some dogs come to us never having received any training, including housebreaking.  Many adopters, while willing to train a dog, are not prepared to have to house train.  So this is handled on a case-by-case basis.  We want the best possible outcome for both you and your dog, so we will evaluate with you what is the best course of action.
