Adoption fees generally cover only a part of the cost of adoption expenses. Adoption fees are requested to help offset the cost of the animal and put toward the rescue of others. No administrative fees are taken from the adoption fee. Once we receive your completed application, a representative will contact you. Please remember we are all volunteers and work as quickly as we can to process applications, however the length of time for the application process varies. Also, we cannot proceed with your application if your references do not return e-mails or phone calls. If, at some point during the application process, you decide for any reason not to go forward, please let us know. In order for GRRSN to consider your application, all other companion animals in your household must be spayed or neutered and up to date on required vaccinations. No exceptions.
PLEASE NOTE: GRRSN is only able to place dogs in the Las Vegas, North Las Vegas, Henderson, Boulder City, Pahrump and immediate surrounding metropolitan areas. Remember the Golden Retrievers that come into rescue are in transition. Although we do have goldens that come in who are perfect, many times they have experienced difficult times. They may have health issues, they may have been shaved and do not have their beautiful golden coat (it does grow back), they may be over or underweight and need healthy and nutritious food. Some of the goldens will have training requirements that take time and energy on your part. The one thing that they all have in common is that they all need love and acceptance for who they are and what they are going through at this time in their lives. Sometimes we know alot about a rescued golden, but sometimes we don’t know very much at all about these wonderful dogs. They could be strays, they could be shelter dogs, they could have been left in a backyard for an owner never to return. Are you willing to give a dog such as this an opportunity at a new life? We can work with you in rescuing a dog that is housebroken, if required, prefer a more mellow personality or, on the other hand, would like a dog that can run and jump and play with you. However, if you have very particular requirements for a golden, such as the color or size or shape of the head, or will only consider a very young puppy, it may be that rescue is not the avenue for you and we would recommend you research and find a reputable breeder.
Please Note: “Puppies rarely find themselves in a rescue situation, but we do get young dogs in often. We will try to get you a dog as young as possible, if that is your preference, but you must be willing to consider dogs up to age 3 in order to adopt from GRRSN.” If you have not gone up to 3 when notating the age you prefer, your application might not be processed. We reserve the right to deny anyone to foster/adopt at the discretion of the GRRSN Board of Directors.
