Canine Adoption

We're so happy you've decided you'd like to adopt a dog from Start Over Rover! Please fill out the following form and we will be in touch as soon as possible. You can download the FULL ADOPTION FORM or come see us and our furry friends at 134 N. Barnes Ave. in Hastings to pick up an application! We look forward to meeting you and cannot wait for you to find your forever friend.


Please read before filling out this application: Start Over Rover requires that all of your current cats and dogs living in your home must be spayed or neutered and up to date on their shots before an adoption can occur, unless there is a medical reason or due to age that your veterinarian does not recommend it. One of our goals is to reduce the pet over-population, thus reducing the number of pets that die in shelters.


Please completely fill out our Adoption Form.  

Each form is reviewed prior to adoption.

We will contact you after your application is processed.

Should I decide not to keep a dog that I adopt from Start Over Rover, I will contact Start Over Rover and arrange a time to return the animal when a kennel becomes available. Until that time, I will continue to properly care for and house the animal.
I understand that I am required to have the animal spayed/neutered within 30 days of the adoption date, or at 6 months of age if the animal is not old enough to be altered before it leaves the rescue.
DISCLAIMER: All of the above information I have given is true and complete. I agree to follow all of the rules and procedures of Start Over Rover. I understand that it is my decision whether or not to adopt any particular dog. I will not hold Start Over Rover responsible for any damage, injury, or harm caused directly or indirectly by any dog I may decide to adopt.
