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.
