We take the safety and well-being of our dogs very seriously and want to be sure that they are going to a great home. Kindly fill out the form below. Once we receive your submission, you will receive a follow up email to discuss the adoption contract and additional details.
It is a MUST that you read the Adoption Information section before you fill in the form. The Adoption Information section a answers most of the questions you might have. Please read it thoroughly each and every step of the process. (FYI, we are not accepting applications from Australia. It takes as long as a year and no vets are willing to do the complicated paper works)
We inform the potential homes when we have received your applications by Facebook messenger, or you send us a note to say that you’ve sent your application. It may take a couple of days to weeks. If you don’t hear from us at all, we are sorry the dog you inquired is already adopted, or reserved, if not being fostered in the US and Canada.
You pick your dog, then we quote you the estimated flight costs (airway bill amount) based on the crate size and the weight of the dogs. We book the flight for you after you have made the payment. The departure date is normally after 5-14 days after your payment.
See under the Flight Costs menu.
Please read the Adoption Information section again before you fill out this form. Most of your questions can be answered in that section.
Please have your six photos ready and attach them. We need three photos of your home/house (prefer fenced front or back yard) for the dogs and three photos of your family members including your dogs. This is a MUST for us to review your applications and your facebook profile.
As the first month is very important to the dogs and to us because everything must be new to your dog, new smell, new people, please keep us updated, post and share the photos/videos from the time of pick up at the airport. We require daily or weekly update first month, anytime when you want to share the progress and adjustments.

DISCLOSURE: SKD recommends all adopters and fosters schedule a thorough vet checkup within 3 months of arrival. As you are aware, these dogs are rescued from the dog meat trade where there is no standard of care or nourishment. Due to their past and the unsanitary environment on dog farms, there may be unknown health issues or injuries. What to look for: Ear, eye, skin, teeth and gum issues, gastrointestinal and respiratory issues, parasites, wounds, and bacterial infections.
That means you will be responsible for all future veterinary/medical care. STOP and think about this last point carefully.
