If you want to adopt a WIN Wheaten, the first step is to complete our online application. The application asks many questions that will help us to determine if we have any wheatens that would be a good match for you and your family. Your application is kept on file for six months. If you have a change in status please let us know us immediately.

Once we receive your adoption application you will get an email stating that we have the application. After looking at your profile, a WIN volunteer will contact you and email photos of available dogs to you, along with a detailed description of the dogs, i.e. age, sex, temperament, and etc. If you are in close proximity of where the dog(s) are being fostered, a visit with the dog will be arranged. Please complete the application in full so that the application can be processed. We thank you for considering a WIN wheaten as your next pet.
