|ALL adoptions START by completing the ADOPTION APPLICATION and sending it to us.
Our adoption fees help to defray our expenses for mandatory
spay/neutering, vaccinations, and any necessary health care (prior to adoption) of all
The adoption fees are:
- $175 for dogs up to the age of 5 years old
- $150 for 6 and 7 year old dogs
- $87.50 for dogs 8 years and older
- Seniors For Seniors program - qualified seniors can
adopt dogs 9 and older free of charge and our rescue group will help offset any medical
costs in regards to the dog for the remainder of their life
The new owner signs a contract that they are
responsible for the dog, will provide adequate care, never keep it on a chain and will
return the dog to German Shepherd Breed Rescue if they EVER cannot keep the dog.
Within a few weeks after the adoption, one of our volunteers makes a home visit to see how
the dog and family are adjusting.
We are always available for help with training,
housebreaking or other issues that may occur.
If you are interested in a particular dog, fill out
our ADOPTION APPLICATION
and note on the top of the first page the name of the dog you are interested in.
Or send us an email by clicking HERE and include your name,
address, home phone, current pets, dog experience, and the dog's name you are interested
in. We will get in touch with you and send you an application.
And we are always in need of more volunteers,
especially for foster homes! If you live in the Northern IL area and would like to
be a foster home or volunteer at our adoption days, fill out the Foster Application or contact us at GSRescue1@aol.com.
