We match our Goldens in foster care to each applicant based on criteria noted on your application and the home visit report. It is very easy to fall in love with a picture or a story, but that may not match what you are looking for in a dog. For this reason, we do not allow applicants to select the dog they want to adopt. A great testament to this policy is the low rate of returned Goldens that were adopted from GRRoW.
Our applications are currently ONLY open to families, or individuals, who are interested in adopting one of our wonderful rescued Golden Retrievers, ages eight years old and older (our senior boys and girls), or dogs who have medical and/or behavioral special needs. These dogs have plenty of love to share and energy for play and walks, with the added benefit of being past the sometimes-challenging puppy and toddler years! If you are interested in adopting one of these amazing dogs, please fill out the Pre-Adoption Inquiry on our Adoption Application page and a volunteer will contact you within 48 hours to get the process started.
GRRoW reserves the right to cancel an adoption application or deny an adoption at any time during the adoption process.
A non-refundable fee of $25 is required with each adoption application.
