Welcome to GRRoW! Thank you for your interest in adopting one of our rescued Golden Retrievers. Rescue dogs are rarely perfect—they may come with medical or behavioral special needs and financial costs. Please understand that these dogs will have a huge capacity to love, and will require love and patience in return.
Many people want to choose a dog from our website— we use a matching system when selecting adoptive families for our Goldens. This system is focused on considering the dog's needs first, then an applicant’s preferences. Once we find a dog whose needs are best met by your home life, you'll be contacted by a GRRoW volunteer.
At this time we are accepting applications for limited-conditions ONLY. Please see the Application page of the site for details. https://www.grrow.org/adoption-application We are only able to accept applications from Wisconsin residents. Children living in the adoptive home must be at least nine years old. A non-refundable application fee of $40 must be submitted with your application. More information about our process can be found on our FAQ page.
GRRoW reserves the right to cancel an adoption application or deny an adoption at any time during the adoption process.
