Traditional Adoption:
Working With a GRRA Foster Dog

An Adoption Consultant (Consultant) will contact you to explain the adoption process and to help you determine what dog attributes and personalities are best suited for your family and home.  The home-check helps the Consultant.  This step will hopefully make perfect matches between people and our rescued dogs.


Once your interview with your consultant, your home check, and the reference checks have been completed, and your application has been approved for adoption, your Consultant will begin searching for the perfect dog for you.  Your Consultant will send you information about dogs within our organization that fit within the parameters you have decided on. 


If you are interested in possibly pursuing the adoption of a particular dog, your Consultant will then send your information over to the dog’s foster for their review.  If you are selected as the best potential match for that dog by his/her foster (the one who knows them best), they will reach out and schedule a meeting.  Dogs must have two meetings on two separate days to be eligible to be adopted by an applicant.  Adoptions can be completed at the second meeting as long as all parties (foster, dog, and applicant) are in agreement.
