To begin the adoption or foster home process with ISDF, you will first need to complete the relevant form. Please download, fill out, and then email the completed form to Dawn Trimmel.

NOTE! You must download the form and fill it out on your computer. If you try to save from your web browser, it will be BLANK!

We suggest downloading a free copy of Adobe Reader if you don’t already have PDf viewing software, so that you can easily download, save, and fill out the necessary forms – along with any others you might need in the future!




In order to complete the adoption process, you will need to complete our adoption contract or foster home agreement and also attest that you have read our rescue manual. Please download, fill out, and email the two completed forms to Dawn Trimmel.



There are a few more forms we may refer to during the course of your adoption, depending on your dog’s personality and health background. One is a tick-borne illness information sheet, which is relevant for some of our Thai adopters. The other is document outlining our tips on handling shy dogs, like meat trade survivors, who can unfortunately be prone to bolting. The last sheet here is some more information about adoption, including microchips and pet insurance.
