ADOPTION PROCESS

Complete and Submit an Open House Registration Form (for scheduled open house). SERIOUS ADOPTERS ONLY.

Attend a Pre-Registered Adoption Event.

COME READY TO ADOPT.

THE RESCUE DOES NOT HOLD A DOG FOR ANY REASON.

Meet perspective adoptable GSDs.

Discuss needs and determine best possible match.

If potential match is found, a formal application is then submitted. Once approved, adopter has 3 days to formally adopt GSD. Boarding charges of $15 per day will be added for adopted dogs not picked up after 3 days. The rescue is a shelter with very limited space. Come ready to adopt.

Personal dogs are not allowed. All family members must be present during open house. Only one meeting per family is available due to time constraints of running a dog kennel. Please plan accordingly. 

IMPORTANT: The rescue cannot test for cat friendliness. For those who currently have dogs, the rescue relies heavily on outside assessments by Indy Downtown Doggie. Families are provided a 5-day grace period to ensure compatibility. Adopters have an option of having their particular dog and adopted GSD evaluated for a nominal donation of $30. This gives families assurance who don't feel comfortable introducing a new dog themselves. Indy Downtown Doggie provides this assessment free to the rescue however the rescue chooses to tip the certified trainers.  Please email with any questions.
