Additional Information:
All dogs are coming from a high kill shelter or from an owner surrender/life change situation. We generally do NOT have back history on our adoptable dogs. We do not take in aggressive dogs, as we cannot risk adopting them out to the public. We post generic information on our canine profiles because they are all very sweet and we love them. If there are any concerns about fitting into your particular household, we will discuss them with you once we phone interview you. 
Adoption Fee is $450 (non-negotiable) and includes:
Spay/neuter, rabies, distemper, bordetella vaccines,
heart worm test, fecal test (as needed), de-wormer and microchip
Adoptions are done on Saturdays ONLY between the hours of 10am to 3pm. All  household members and current dogs MUST be present for the meet and greet prior to the adoption. Please contact your veterinarian and give them permission to speak to a BCRA representative. ALL animals in the household must be vaccinated in accordance with Connecticut State Law and MUST be spayed/neutered. We do NOT adopt to out of state residents
We do our best to ensure that a proper match between dog and family is made every single time. Please keep in mind that it can take up to three months for a dog to properly decompress and relax outside of a shelter environment. Training is usually almost always needed but it is well worth the effort. If the meet and greet with your prospective dog is a success, then we will complete the adoption contract that day. You will receive an adoption packet with all original vet records and helpful tools and tips to have a smooth transition for your pet into your home. We are always here to help you, night and day. You will receive personal contact information in the adoption packet to reach us anytime. When you adopt from Brass City Rescue Alliance, you become a part of our united family. 
We love our dogs and cats and we want to ensure they are always happy.
If you have further questions, please be sure to discuss them with one of our Adoption Coordinators when they call you. 
It usually takes 24 hours to complete an application and they will reach out to you and let you know it was received and being processed.
We look forward to meeting you and your family!
The Brass City Team
