German Shepherd Rescue Adoption Process
"A Shelter Without Walls"

Requirements:

  • Be at least 21 years old.
  • Have the knowledge and consent of all adults living in the household.
  • If you rent, must have the written approval of the owner of your residence.
  • Have valid ID with current address.
  • Be approved as a suitable adoptive home by German Shepherd Rescue.


Process:

  • Each applicant will receive verification that their application has been received by German Shepherd Rescue within 48 hours.
  • Applicants will be contacted ONLY if there is an immediate match between the applicant and an available German Shepherd dog. If you are not contacted, your application will be placed in a pending file awaiting a match with a dog. A good match may take some time to accomplish, please be patient.
  • It is expected that you attend an event to meet with us and review your application. Refer to our Event Page for upcoming adoption events.

Due to the amount of applications the rescue receives on a weekly basis, it is impossible to contact everyone.


Adoption Fees:

Less than 12 months old...................$400
1 to 5 years old................................$350
6 and 7 years old.............................$250
8 years and up.................................$200


Note: Older adults, 65+ years, can adopt a senior dog for $150.00 Special fees are available for former adopters and/or multiple dogs.

All adopted dogs go home with a bag of high quality dog food, I.D. tags, rabies vaccination, and a microchip.  In addition, the new owners are provided a list of locations in which they can purchase quality dog food in their area and a list of local positive reinforcement trainers who place emphasis on positive rewards based training.
