The Grateful Dogs Rescue adoption procedure is designed to find a good match between the dog and adopter. Our goal is a happy human and happy dog in a "forever home." Our dogs live in nurturing foster homes provided by volunteers. The adoption procedure includes an application, interview, and a home visit. Grateful Dogs Rescue incurs substantial veterinary and other expenses in rescuing and rehoming our dogs. Our average cost is about $800 per dog rescued, but can be as high as several thousand dollars for certain dogs that require orthopedic or other surgery or specialized care. In order to recoup some of these costs, we request a tax-deductible donation for each adoption.
You can read more about our adoption process and the requested donation on our adoption application page.
