Adoption Process

  1. If you have not owned a GSP before, please read the article “Is a GSP Right for You?” to gain a better understanding of the GSP breed and the type of environment in which he thrives
  2. Apply Complete our adoption questionnaire. Please provide as much information as you can about your family, other pets, activity level, and why you are wanting to adopt a rescue GSP. This will help us to determine which dog might be best suited to your family.
  3. Introduction You will be emailed shortly after your application is received, usually within 3-5 days, to further discuss your application and what you are looking for in a GSP companion. We will also determine whether we currently have any GSPs that we feel might fit in your family situation.
  4. Meet & Greet If a GSP is identified as a potential match, we will have you contact the foster home to arrange a visit with the dog(s). The rescue dog will need to meet all members of the family, including other pets, at some point during the process.
  5. Home Visit If after meeting the dog, everyone agrees he/she is a good fit for your family, we will schedule a home visit. The home visit will either be done by one of our volunteers or another affiliated rescue group. Home visits are required before any dog leaves our rescue program.
  6. Contract Once the home visit is completed and you are approved, we will ask you to complete an adoption agreement. If you do not agree to the stipulations in the contract, we cannot adopt a dog to you. Please note that we reserve the right to deny anyone the ability to adopt any dog from our rescue program for any reason. All adoptions are at our sole discretion.
  7. Fee Our adoption fee is $375. This covers spay/neutering, vaccinations, heartworm and fecal checked and microchip. Occasionally, a dog requires special vet care while in our program. We will provide you with the dog’s veterinary records so you will be fully informed of any known medical conditions.
  8. Forever Lastly, and most importantly, comes a lifetime of love and laughter with your new companion! We love to get periodic updates and photos of our rescues. They all have a special place in our hearts. If you would like to share a story and photos, please email us.
