The Adoption Process 

 
Home Adoption/Foster Application Contact us
GRRAND is an all-volunteer organization.  Everyone involved donates their time and labor to seek homes for these wonderful dogs. We do not have a paid staff, office or kennel. Every effort is made to process your application on a timely basis and take great care to match the right Golden to the right home. The adoption process is outlined below.
1.  Interested parties must begin by submitting a completed adoption application. You can fill out the online application, download a printable version or if necessary, you may contact us to send you one. Note: Submission of an application does not guarantee an adoption.
 
2.  Your application is received and reviewed as quickly as possible.  Please let your references know that we will be contacting them.  Upon application approval, we will contact you and set up a home visit where everyone in your family will learn about adopting a GRRAND dog. Additionally, the GRRAND volunteer will make sure your home is safe for a rescued Golden. This visit takes approximately one hour.
 
3.  After you pass the home visit, a rescue coordinator will work with you to determine which dog(s) might be a good match for you, your family and your lifestyle. We will then arrange for you to meet our 4-legged friends!
