Adoption fees will vary based upon the age of the dog(s) that you select.

Along with daily care costs, the adoption fees help GLWR cover vaccination and medical prep costs for the dogs. At adoption, GLWR dogs will be current on their vaccines and will have the following:

  • Rabies (1 yr. or 3 yr.)
  • Distemper (DHLPP or DHLPP-C)
  • Bordetella
  • Negative Heartworm, Lyme’s, Anaplasmosis and Ehrlichiosis Test
  • Lyme Vaccine (if relevant)
  • Altered – Females Spayed or Males Neutered
  • Micro-chipped

Fees may be paid with cash (for our Canadian friends – we can accept U.S. currency only) or personal check and are payable in full at the time of the adoption. Unfortunately, we cannot accept credit cards at foster home locations. If visiting the dogs at the main rescue site we can process credit cards but there is an additional 5% fee to cover credit handling charges. As GLWR is a federally registered 501(3)(c) charity adoption fees in the U.S. are typically tax deductible, however, we suggest that you consult your tax preparer for confirmation.
