GARD Adoption Application

If you are interested in adopting one of our adoptable pets, please read our adoption policy and then complete this online adoption application or email us with any questions. If emailing us about a particular dog, please put the dog's name in the subject line of your email. Please allow us up to 72 hours to respond to your email.

There is a $10.00 application fee required to help cover the cost of care for our cats and dogs looking for a new home. This fee is not refundable and does not guarantee any adoption. Adoptions are not first-come-first-serve, but are based on the best fit for an animal’s particular needs. We are an all volunteer organization and spend many hours reviewing applications, checking vet references, etc. This is valuable time that is wasted if once we approve an application, the adopter is not serious about adopting and changes their mind. Charging an application fee helps us save valuable time by ensuring those that apply to adopt are indeed serious and ready to adopt because they are willing to pay a non-refundable fee.
