The process takes approximately two weeks or less to adopt a dog through Texas Sweeties Dog Rescue (TSDR). The process begins when you submit your application. We ask that you be prepared to adopt (i.e., moved into new house, done with vacationing, etc.) before you submit an application. It becomes difficult for volunteers tracking all the applications if you’re not ready to adopt when you submit an application. If something occurs after you submit your application that will delay adoption, please contact TSDR and we will file your application and take it off the active list. When you are ready to adopt again, we ask that you please submit a new application to restart the process.
