GOTGM Adoption Application
  • Guardians of the Green Mile Inc.

  • Adoption/Foster Application-Thank you for your interest in adopting a pet from Guardians of the Green Mile Inc. We are a group of individuals that have come together to save the lives of animals that are in danger of being euthanized. We raise funds to fully vet the animals and to provide them with a stable home until they are adopted. All of the dogs in our Rescue are in Foster homes while they are looking for their forever family. The only time we put a dog in boarding is for a Foster to go on vacation if another Foster is not able to care for them. We spend time with the mother dogs before they have their puppies and then 8 weeks with the mom and pups after. We appreciate your taking the time to fill out the application to adopt one of our Guardians of the Green Mile pets. The questions that we ask are to only find the right fit for all of our dogs and the families that will be adopting them. Adoption fees are $250 for dogs that are 1 year and older. $300 for puppies under 1 year. PLUS A $50.00 Deposit that will be Refunded after the Puppy is Spayed or Neutered. Included in the adoption fee: All animals will be fully vetted, micro chipped and spayed or neutered. Renter’s will be required to submit a copy of their lease agreement to verify Landlord and also All Fosters and Adopters that have personal animals must be spayed / neutered. Age appropriate and healthy enough for surgery, We will verify that with the reference call to your Veterinarian.Please complete the form to the best of your ability. Enter N/A if a question does not apply to you. We are 100% volunteer operated and will process your application within a few days to a week depending on volunteer availability.
