How Do I Adopt?
How do I adopt a Golden Retriever from Golden Endings?
adoption fee for a Golden Endings dog varies for the age/needs per
dog. This fee helps to pay the expenses incurred for the dog's medical
treatment, which in many cases is less than GEGRR pays to bring the
dog to an adoptable condition.
Potential adopters are screened, by written application and by
telephone interview. The application and the interview will help the
adoption coordinator, and the adoption coordinator determines which
dogs are most suitable for each applicant. If the applicant has had
other pets, a veterinarian reference is requested. In some cases,
GEGRR will conduct a home visit to see where a dog will live, play,
and exercise. Also, adoptive families consent to periodic follow-up
calls during their first year of ownership.
families are required to sign a contract regarding the treatment of
their new pet. Care of the dog is never to be transferred to an animal
shelter. If the family is unable or unwilling to keep the dog, it must
be returned to Golden Endings. All GEGRR dogs are spayed or neutered
and cannot be used for breeding purposes. The adoptive families agree
to provide medical treatment when necessary and all annual booster
vaccinations at a veterinary clinic of their choice. The adoptive
family will provide the dog with its monthly heartworm preventative.
The adoptive family agrees to keep their pet contained and not let it
roam the neighborhood.
Endings requires the new owner to provide the dog with a course in
basic obedience. Training will help the dog become a valued member of
your family. We also recommend that you feed the dog a premium dog
food, the benefits of doing this far outweighs the cost involved.
