Many non-profit Siberian Husky rescue organizations offer free adoption of Siberian Huskies to applicants. Each of these rescue organizations has its own adoption policy, and some require home visits before adopting out dogs.
The Husky House, a Siberian Husky rescue organization located in Matawan, New Jersey, requires applicants adopting a Siberian Husky to be at least 23 years old, to live in New York City or New Jersey and to live within an hour's drive from the organization headquarters. Representatives of the Husky House perform a home visit prior to releasing any rescued dogs for adoption. The Husky House does not adopt out Siberian Huskies under one year of age to applicants with no experience raising the breed.
Free Spirit Siberian Rescue, based in Harvard, Illinois, also performs home visits with applicants prior to adopting out any of the dogs it has rescued. This organization attempts to educate the public on how to properly care for pets, including the importance of spaying and neutering.
While some Husky rescue organizations do not charge applicants who adopt their dogs, others charge adoption fees. Such fees include the cost of canine vaccines, bathing, grooming, implanting a microchip, and spaying or neutering if necessary.
