Fundraising Goal: $500.00

Once we picked Gladney, we were required to fill out a preliminary application. This paperwork provided Gladney with our demographics as well as information regarding whether or not our values aligned with theirs. The $500 goes towards a day-long orientation and access to Gladney’s online adoption portal and resources.

Finally, expectant parent(s) will be able to review our profile and choose if they would like to reach out to us. Then we will mutually decide if we are a right fit for each other.
