    Adoption procedures for adopting a dog from GRRR

    How to adopt a dog with GRRR

    ​1.  After you see a dog you would like to meet,  please call us at to set-up a meet and greet and home inspection bringing the dog to your home.  We will provide you with an application prior to the meet and greet appointment , where you will be asked information regarding your home environment, family information, vet references and personal references.   While a fenced yard is not required, GRRR prefers to do adoptions to homes with a fenced yard environment.  

    2.  Upon approval of your application and successful completion of the meet and greet appointment,  you will be given an opportunity to  have the dog stay with you for one to three days to insure that the  environment and your family are a good fit for the dog.  This part of the adoption process will require you to sign a short term foster agreement  with GRRR required by the State of Georgia Department of Agriculture.
    3.  Upon successful completion of the short-term stay, you will be given an opportunity to decide if the adoption  should move forward.  GRRR will also decide if the adoption is a good decision to insure that the dog that you have selected will be provided a loving, forever home and will be well cared for and loved.  Our experience in finding rescued dogs forever homes may determiner that your home might not be the right fit for a particular dog.  Other dogs might be available for you to meet should this situation occur.
    4.  The finalization of the adoption process will be done at your home. 
    You will be provided an adoption contract, all medical records, rabies certificate, spay/neuter records and your microchip information for registration.
    5.  Adoption fees are $200.00 for all dogs up to the age of seven.  Adoption fee for all dogs seven years old age and older are $100.00.  All fees are due upon final adoption  are are non-refundable in the event that the adoption does not work out.  All adopted dogs will be up-to-date on all immunizations, rabies vaccine, spayed or neutered and will be microchipped
    ​Volunteer with GRRR

    Alone we can do so little. Together we can do so much.” – Helen Keller

    We have a small volunteer staff and there are so many dogs and people who need our assistance. That's why we're always looking for people who love dogs and are interested in getting involved in the community. Volunteers are an integral part of  GRRR's history and mission and provide support to ensure that every dog receives the highest quality of care and compassion.  There are many ways to get involved as a volunteer, here are just a few.

    1. Satellite Adoption Event Volunteer

    We need volunteers to help with our satellite adoptions, which generally take place on Saturdays or Sundays.. This opportunity involves hanging out with dogs at adoption locations in order to try to find homes for them. Volunteers can also assist the dogs for these events by providing transport from their foster home to the event and back home again. We need outgoing persons who are especially comfortable and experienced with dogs.

    2.  Special Events Volunteer
    Volunteers are needed to assist with special events such as Wag-O-Ween, Bark in the Park and other fundraising events through out the year.  Much preparation goes into making these fund-raisers successful and we really count on our volunteers to make it happen!  Volunteers are encouraged to plan these events as well as lead events.   If you have ideas for a fundraiser, please contact us so that we can provide you the tools needed to plan and lead your event.

    3.  Administrative Volunteer

    As an administrative volunteer you would assist with operational responsibilities in our foster and adoption process,.  These duties could easily be performed from your home.

    ​The GRRR Mission
    Founded in 2011, GRRR is a small 501(c)(3)  rescue organization that serves Chatham County in coastal  Georgia as well as the surrounding counties in the area.  Based in Savannah, we are dedicated to rescuing dogs from owners who are no longer able to care for them, from public shelters without a "no-kill" policy and from situations where a dog has suffered abuse or neglect.  We are committed to helping dogs of all ages and believe that no matter what the age or health condition of a dog, we are dedicated to insuring that every dog deserves love, care and compassion.   All donations are tax deductible, and every dollar goes directly to the care of our rescued dogs.  All dogs rescued by GRRR are then spayed or neutered, receive full veterinary treatment, immunizations and microchips.  We are a foster based organization and all dogs are placed in loving foster homes while awaiting adoption into carefully screened, loving forever homes.
