Adoption Process


Thank you for your interest in Grateful Goldens Rescue. If you are interested in adopting one of our dogs, please complete the adoption application and send it back to us. 

Note: Due to the large number of inquiries we receive regarding adopting one of our dogs, we must have an application before we can speak with you about an adoption. 

The application form can be downloaded to your computer, filled out and saved as a Word document. This form can then be e-mailed (preferred method) as an attachment to adoption@ggrlc.org. You can also click on the link, print the form, fill it out and mail to GGR c/o Adoptions, PO Box 2799, Myrtle Beach, SC 29577. 

Once we receive your application, one of GGR's volunteers will contact you to make arrangements for a phone interview and home visit.

All our Goldens receive a veterinary examination and are up to date on vaccines. If needed, they are spayed and neutered and treated for heartworms. Other medical issues are also taken care of prior to any of our dogs becoming available for adoption. All medical records are provided when a dog is adopted.

Adopting a Golden is a life-long commitment and the time needed to find the right dog for each family is well worth the wait. We encourage people who are interested in adopting a Golden from us to submit an application – even if the “right dog” is not currently available. That way, when the “right dog” comes along, you will have been approved. Once you have your new dog – your life will be forever changed - in the best of ways!
