Thank You

Thank you for submitting an adoption application. To expedite processing of your application, be sure to notify your vet in advance that you give GREAT permission to do a vet check. ALSO, please upload photos of your home and fenced yard below. Or you may, email them ASAP to adoption@greatrescue.org; include your name and date you submitted the application online. We cannot process your application without vet check and photos. Thank you.

Please allow 14 days for your application to be processed and for one of our members to get back to you. We reply to all applicants so if you don’t hear from us within 14 days, please contact us. We make every attempt to reply promptly but please keep in mind that we are all volunteers.

Please allow 14 days for your application to be processed and for one of our members to get back to you. We reply to all applicants so if you don’t hear from us within 14 days, please contact us. We do make every effort to respond quickly but please bear in mind that we are all volunteers.

PLEASE NOTE: All dogs are placed on PetFinder when they are deemed adoptable. We then go through approved applicants on file in order of priority (prior adopting families, fosters, vet referrals and approved applicants have first consideration in the order of submission) to determine if there is a potential match. We then contact the first potential adopter to see if they are interested in “interviewing” the dog. If they defer, we go to the next approved applicant, and so forth until the dog is adopted. The dog is then removed from PetFinder.

If after you have received notification that your application has been approved, you see one of our dogs on PetFinder in which you have an interest, please contact us with the name of the dog. We will make a notation in your records. You will be contacted if and when that dog is available for your consideration.

Due to the high volume of requests for particular dogs, we cannot respond to individual phone calls or emails inquiries on a dog.

If at any time you no longer wish for us to keep your application on file, please contact us and let us know.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.
