General Information and Completion Instructions:

GRRI-NJ is currently accepting applications from residents of New Jersey, and Westchester and Rockland Counties ONLY.

Please fill out this adoption application and press the submit button when completed.

All of the information is required. Please look over the application and make sure you have everything you need in order to fill it out.

Due to volunteer time constraints, incomplete applications will NOT be processed or returned to you for completion. Please double check your application BEFORE you submit it to us.

Applicants will be called by a GRRI-NJ volunteer within approximately 2 weeks of submission for an application review. If your application review is favorable you will then be contacted by a GRRI-NJ volunteer who will arrange for your home visit. Pending a favorable home visit, the application approval process will then be  completed.

GRRI-NJ reserves the right to refuse adoptions to any potential applicant(s).

Adopters must be over 21 years of age.

GRRI-NJ does NOT accept applications for specific Goldens. You must apply to adopt a Golden from our program. If you are approved, you will be matched based on available Goldens in our program.

GRRI-NJ adoptions are NEVER determined on a first come basis.  GRRI-NJ always chooses the most compatible environment for each Golden. Wait times may vary and depend on many factors.

GRRI-NJ rarely has puppies available for adoption. The vast majority of the Goldens we help are adults.  For information about local breeder referral, please email us.

Fees:

Non-Refundable Adoption Application Filing Fee:  $10.  This filing fee  must be submitted prior to your application being processed.  Payment of this fee does not guarantee that the application will be approved, nor does it guarantee that you will be given a dog by GRRI-NJ.  The adoption application fee will not be applied towards any adoption fee.

Non-Refundable Adoption Fees:  These fees are paid at the time of adoption, as follows: 

Puppies to 11 months:  $350
1 year to 7 years:  $325
Seniors (8+): $100
Pair: $350
Special Needs: $100

*  Puppies and (rarely) adult dogs are sometimes placed intact due to health or other concerns that prevent altering before adoption.  In those instances, adopters must also remit a $100 Spay/Neuter deposit which is refunded upon GRRI-NJ's receipt of documentary proof that the respective procedure has been performed.  Such proof must be submitted to GRRI-NJ within 30 days of adoption unless otherwise agreed  by GRRI-NJ  in writing at the time of adoption.
