Adoption Questionnaire

Thanks for your interest in adopting a rescued GSP. This questionnaire is the first step in our adoption process.

We have been overwhelmed with adoption interest due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and simultaneously have very few dogs available for adoption. As a result, we have implemented a waiting list. You will be added to this waitlist and we will contact you when a potential match becomes available. We keep your application active for one year. We appreciate your patience, our team is all volunteers. Thank you!


Our service area is Northern California and priority is given to residents within our service area and adjacent areas. If you are interested in one of our older or hard-to-place dogs, we will consider out-of-area applicants in areas in the western United States; please apply if that's the case. If you reside in Southern California, our colleagues at CA GSP Rescue will be happy to assist you - Southern California residents CLICK HERE. Not in California? Find rescues in your area on the Regional Rescue Group List through National GSP Rescue.

Because almost all of our dogs come to us with unknown histories, we don't adopt to families with children under 6 unless we have a dog that is known to be good with younger children, which will be specifically noted in the foster dog’s posting
