Adoption Application

Thank you for your interest in adopting a rescue dog from German Shepherd Rescue of the Rockies (GSROR). This application will assist us in finding you the right dog for your family and your lifestyle. Please note that we do not adopt out of the state of Colorado.

The adoption fee for our dogs is $250, which includes a veterinary heath examination, up-to-date vaccinations, a micro-chip, dogs will be spayed or neutered, and heartworm tested. They will come with a dog collar and ID tag. Senior dog adoption fees will be posted separately for each dog.

You must be at least 25 years of age to adopt any of GSROR's available rescue dogs.

The adopter understands that this is an application to adopt and part of the application process includes us contacting your vet and personal references. If your application meets our requirements, we will contact you by phone to conduct an interview before making a final decision regarding your application. Please do not send us emails regarding the status of your application.

GSROR reserves the right to refuse adoption to anyone.
