Adoption Application Form

The adoption process for GoldHeart GRR requires you to complete this application and submit the required non-refundable $30 application processing fee donation. Goldheart volunteers first check your vet reference and will then schedule a home visit and check your personal references. A Home Visit Volunteer will contact you to set up a convenient time to come to your home, meet with you and your family, and answer any questions you may have about adopting a dog from GoldHeart.

PLEASE READ THESE NOTIFICATIONS BEFORE SUBMITTING AN APPLICATION:

(1) Goldheart supports the importance of altering (spay/neuter) of pets, and generally, will not adopt, foster-to-adopt, or place fosters in homes with intact dogs. If your home has an intact dog, and there is a veterinary supported reason not to neuter/spay, please check with GoldHeart for an exception decision prior to submitting an adoption/foster-to-adopt/foster application by sending an email to adoption@goldheart.org. If you proceed to submit an application without exception approval from GoldHeart’s Adoption Application Coordinator, your processing fee will not be returned.

(2) Processing Time:  GoldHeart’s all-volunteer team periodically faces application backlogs, resulting in a 6-12 week processing time. We appreciate your patience and understanding, and apologize in advance, but it may be many weeks before we get to your application.

Note:  Please check your Spam/Junk email folder for communications from GoldHeart if you haven’t heard from us within 6 weeks of submitting your application.  We have no control over your Internet provider and how they block/filter incoming email. 

Please attach a separate sheet with information that you feel is pertinent, or to explain answers more fully.
Applicants must be at least 21 years old.
