First, you need to fill out an Application online or you can print the application and mail it in. We conduct phone interviews and home visits on all of our applicants. Because we are a 100% volunteer-based organization, it could take 2-4 weeks or longer to complete the process. GRFR reserves the right to reject any application for placement at any given time.

Once we have a Golden or a Mixed breed that is right for you, prior to the adoption approval, you must agree that the Golden/Mixed Breed will live inside your home and will be exercised daily. You must also agree that you will spend the amount of money necessary (between $1200 and $2200/year) to care for your Golden/Mixed Breed Dog and that you are willing to take care of the Pet for the rest of its life.

Special Note: Applicants must have a Physical Fence to adopt a dog under 8 years.

**If for any reason you are unable to care for your ADOPTED GRFR DOG, they must be returned to GRFR.
