Terms of Adoption

Applications will remain active for 6 months, unless otherwise notified by the applicant, if no suitable match has been found. Prior adopting families, fosters, vet referrals and approved applicants on file have first consideration in the order of submission for adoption of a suitable Golden Retriever/Golden mix. Once a dog has been “interviewed” by a family, the family must make a decision, sign the paperwork and pay the adoption fee within 24 hours to be guaranteed the right to adopt the specific dog visited.

All new owners will be expected to pay an adoption fee for the preferred Golden Retriever on the day the adoption takes place. There will be no extended credit or late payments accepted. Adoption fees help defray expenses in rescuing this and other Golden Retrievers brought into G.R.E.A.T. Rescue.

All G.R.E.A.T. participants are volunteers and are not responsible or liable in any manner, at present or into the future, for any problems or mishaps that may occur following the adoption of a G.R.E.A.T. Golden Retriever.

The decision to place a Golden is at the sole discretion of G.R.E.A.T. Rescue and its Board of Directors and that which is deemed to be in the best interest of the Golden Retriever. We reserve the right to refuse any application.
