b1German 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.

GSR’s 3 Step Process:

  • Complete and submit an Adoption Application .  You can submit an application on-line by using this link Adoption Application, or request an application by sending an e-mail to gsrescue1@comcast.net.  Each applicant will receive verification that their application has been received by German Shepherd Rescue, Inc. within 24 hours of receipt.   If you don’t hear from us in 48 hours, please send an email to gsrescue1@comcast.net.
  • The second step is to meet with German Shepherd Rescue, Inc. at one of our Adoption Events.  The applicant meets with a GSR volunteer to review the application, answer any questions, and discuss the dogs available.  Refer to our Events page for the bi-monthly event schedule.
    • Please note that there will be no dogs available for adoption at Meet and Greet events.  These are opportunities for the applicant to meet with volunteers, during which time a more complete understanding of the applicants information can be obtained.  Not every dog is a good fit for every applicant, this meeting allows us to place a dog in the best possible home, one that will truly be ‘forever’.
  • The third step would be the canine Meet and Greet of an available dog by appointment.
