Learn about our Adoption Process. APBF is not a rescue or adoption agency, however, we do rescue pregnant female dogs for our Shelter to Service Dog Program, Operation Sidekick and adopt the mothers out. Puppies from the litter may be made available if they do not remain in the program. Our Sidekick puppies are well trained and though they may not be suited for what we look for in a Service Dog, make excellent family companions. The females we select from the shelters have to pass a rigorous temperament test and also make excellent family companions.
