Dog adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog and you'll have a friend for life! Contact us, or contact another local humane society, animal shelter or SPCA.
A volunteer with ECGRR will contact the applicant and discuss the home visit procedure, vet reference check and talk about the right dog that might fit with the applicants lifestyle.
IMPORTANT: Due to safety concerns, we are unable to adopt dogs to families with children under the age of 6 years old.
Also, ECGRR requires all of their rescued dogs be kept as pets and become indoor dogs.
We have implemented a "recommended donation structure" as information for potential adopters. These amounts are negotiable, but serve to provide a ballpark figure. Please remember, donations and fund raisers are the sole income for our organization. All funds are used exclusively in returning these gentle animals to good health and finding appropriate homes. All of our members volunteer their time and transportation services and we receive no compensation.
All adoption contributions include spay or neuter and all vaccinations as of the adoption date. ECGRR will disclose any known health issues before adoption.
Our 2011 average expenditure on each rescued dog taken into our program was $320, with 97% of the monies being used for medically treating these surrendered and homeless dogs including heartworm treatment and spay/neutering.
0-11 months $350
9 + years $250
Special Needs TBD
Why should you adopt?
Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog or puppy versus getting dogs for sale or puppies for sale from a dog breeder? When someone is breeding puppies, they are creating new dogs who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog or puppy and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale from a puppy breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog or adopt a puppy at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
