We are currently experiencing a tremendous overload of applications and with the canine flu we are not currently able to do home visits. If you apply, please understand that you may not hear from us quickly.

Would you love to adopt a Golden? Or perhaps you’d like to become a rescue hero by fostering one? Information is key!
Please read these Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)BEFORE submitting your application.
If you are interested in adopting a Turkey Dog be sure to read TD Expections before applying.

If you are sure that you can commit to giving a Golden the forever home it deserves, we’d love to hear from you! After we receive your application we’ll be in touch with you within 24-48 hours. Applicants must live within the EGRR territory, which consists of the following counties: Indian River, St. Lucie, Martin, Palm Beach, Broward, Miami-Dade, and Monroe. Applicants outside of this area will ONLY be considered for senior and/or special needs dogs, and bonded pairs.

  • Adoption applicants- There is a $10 non-refundable adoption application fee payable through PayPal. You do not need to have a paypal account in order to process a credit card via paypal. ** please take note of your PayPal transaction confirmation number as you will be required to enter in the Adoption/Foster Application form below. 
  • Former EGRR adopters – If you are only updating information, the adoption application fee is waived. Please put FORMER ADOPTER in the space for the paypal confirmation.

We’ve been having some problems with our web hosting company, which has caused some applications to go unseen.
