• MAGRR reserves the right to refuse any application for any reason. MAGRR bases placement decisions on the right home for each dog.
  • A $23 non-refundable processing fee will be charged for submission of an application.
  • Application must be filled out in its entirety. Any application that is incomplete will be rejected.
  • MAGRR will only adopt to well-established individuals to provide stability for the Golden.
  • MAGRR will not consider any application that is submitted for anyone other than the primary applicant. MAGRR dogs may not be given as gifts.
  • MAGRR will not adopt to applicants whose current pets are unsprayed or unneutered unless there is a medical reason. This goes against what rescue promotes and supports.
  • Applicants with children under 8 years of age will not be considered. Click here for an explanation. This does not apply to adoption of puppies under 6 months of age. (NOTE: Puppies are not always posted on our website, as we maintain a puppy waiting list. If you are interested in a puppy, even though you don’t see any, please fill out an application. We never know when puppies will come into our program.)
  • No MAGRR dog is to be used for any purpose other than as an indoor family member. They may be trained as therapy dogs. Dogs may not be left in yards, chained to trees or used as guard dogs.
  • In general, large dogs have a difficult time living in apartments due to their size and need for space. While we do not outright refuse all apartment dwellers, these applications will be reviewed and considered on a case by case basis.
  • In the South, a physical fence is almost always required.
