Adoption guidelines

Our commitment

We are committed to matching our dogs with good, responsible and loving new owners. We strive to make the best match we can. Our number one concern is for our GSPs. Below you can find detailed information on our adoption requirements.

Applicant requirements.
  • All adoption individuals must be at least 21 years old.

  • All adopting individuals will have to completely fill out and sign the Adoption Application which must be verified and approved.

  • We will not discuss individual dogs with applicants until the adoption process has been completed because there may be more than one applicant interested in a particular dog, and we do not want to promise the same dog to more than one applicant.

  • Applicants who live in other states are welcome to apply. Being a donation based rescue, having the applicant arrange transport is the best, but we can help facilitate if needed.

Environment requirements.
  • All adopting individuals, who live in a single family home, must have a fenced yard with a fence in good repair or be able to show that they can properly and safely exercise the dog.* 

  • All adopting individuals, who live in an apartment / condo / townhouse must be able to show how the GSP will be adequately exercised.*

  • All adopting individuals who live in rental property will have to have a signed approval document from their landlord.

  • All adopting individuals must have a home check in order to verify application and conditions of the potential “forever home”.

Care requirements.
  • All GSPs will be spayed/neutered prior to any adoption.*

  • All dogs and cats in the adopting home must be spayed or neutered unless there is a medical reason that a spay or neuter cannot be done. This will be verified by a vet.

  • All dogs and cats in the adopting home must be current on vaccinations.

* We will take each application on a case by case basis.
A note about hunting: Because we know nothing about the background of the majority of the dogs we rescue, we cannot guarantee the hunting ability of any dog. We do not have the volunteer resources to hunt test dogs. Any dog you adopt from us should be a family companion first, and if the dog is inclined to hunt that will be a wonderful bonus.
Please do not apply for a young puppy if you intend to be gone all day. The general guideline is that puppies may be left alone, for no longer in hours than the number of months of their ages. 
We do not have a physical location, as all of our dogs are fostered in individual homes. 
Adoption fees.

Puppies up to 16 weeks $500
4 to 12 months $450
12 to 24 months $400
2 to 7 years $350
7+ years/Senior $300

If you are a prior adopter, you can add a Great Senior (those dogs that are designated as seniors on their posting) to your family for free – simply mention it to our adoption team.
