All applicants must pay a $23 non-refundable application processing fee. We appreciate applicants being mindful of their capitalization. It is difficult to read submissions with all capital letters.

To begin our adoption process, all applicants are required to fill out this online questionnaire. We recommend reviewing the various links throughout our site to understand more about our organization and what a major undertaking it is to adopt a golden retriever. We expect applicants to have read all adoption policies at the time of submission, and by submitting this application, it is understood that all policies have been reviewed.

We appreciate your interest in our organization and in our dogs; however, please understand perfect dogs simply do not exist. Also keep in mind, we have a two to three month waiting period to adopt a dog. In order to make a successful match, time and patience from both the adopter and the adoption team is required. Many applicants are disappointed to undergo such a lengthy process, but this is a necessary step in meshing a successful match.

Adoption fees:          Regular:  $475           Senior:  $300          Northeast have added cost of transport.
