Important Note

Shaney is best friends with Miley. Please adopt both of them so they can stay together!
Shaney & Miley are mother and daughter and are very bonded; both have been residing at GGOH since 11/ 2009.
These girls have been with GGOH since they were brought in from one of our rescue missions on a reservation in South Dakota. Shaney, Miley and Bandit (who has been adopted) were taken after they were found beaten, with broken jaws and multiple injuries. It was reported by persons on the reservation that Shaney and Bandit were trying to save their puppies (who all perished) who were being beaten by some children and in their attempts, they were hit with baseball bats, breaking their jaws and Shaney's ear. It was heartbreaking to know they had suffered so much but it was heartwarming to know we were there and could get them out safely. Shaney, Miley and Bandit came to GGOH where they had to learn to trust and understand the world was not always a scary painful place. Miley was Bandit and Shaney's daughter from a previous birth so mom and daughter rely on each other heavily. Both love to go for walks and are great on their leashes. Love to snuggle and just be with you. They will need some time to adjust to a new environment but will do great with an individual or a family, with older children, who will give them love and patience. They are ok with cats but do have some issues with other dogs as they are afraid of them sometimes due to their beginnings, running among the packs. We know they are special souls who just need understanding and a peaceful place to call "home". Red Heeler mixes; approx. 6 1/2 and 5 1/2 yrs old (as of December 2014). Please don't overlook these wonderful pups ~ we know you would be happy with them, if you just gave them the chance they deserve.

PLEASE READ OUR ADOPTION PROCESS INFORMATION BEFORE SUBMITTING ANY COMMUNICATION OR APPLICATION TO US. Thank you!

About Gregory's Gift of Hope, Inc

About Our Rescue Group...

Established in 2003, we are a no-kill rescue/re-home program that takes in abandoned, homeless and unwanted animals. We work tirelessly to find new, permanent homes for our rescues. Our program's Director began this journey when our county's humane society was closed down.

A note from our Director:

"I have been a lifelong rescuer; all of my pets (currently, 10 dogs and 5 cats) are rescue animals. They mean the world to me and I want to help as many animals as I can while I am on this earth. Back in 2003, I gathered together many animal lovers in the area and we started our rescue efforts; we've continued to grow over time and are now operating as a 501c3 organization, which has helped us strengthen our efforts to save the animals. We want to see that no animal goes without love, shelter, food or a happy life. We work on educating the public about the overpopulation problem, we promote spay/neuter programs, and we do group tours at our facility to teach about the rescue re-home world. To get our youth community involved, we visit schools to teach about responsible pet ownership, animal abuse and neglect, and what they as an animal advocate can do to help prevent these tragedies. We are proud of what we do here at our rescue and we believe it is our job to protect those that speak another language and quite honestly, we just could not imagine a world without them. I invite you to join our efforts by becoming a sustainable monthly donor, a volunteer with our program or, simply to be another voice for the animals. Contact us today to find out how you can help."

Come Meet Our Pets...

Our facility is located at 1374 Hwy 65 in New Richmond, WI.

We are open to the public:

For Dogs -
By appointment only which is set up after application is approved.

For Cats -
Daily from 9am - 12noon, and again from 5pm - 8pm.

Our Adoption Process...

As we are a small rescue/re-home facility with an equally as small volunteer staff, at this time we are forced to limit our adoptions to suitable adopters that reside within a 100 mile radius of our facility. Before you proceed with any adoption inquiries, be aware of where we are located in relation to your personal residence. Please continue reading for our adoption policies and procedures.


BASICS

Be aware that we have Fencing, Indoor Living and Declawing policies. We will not waiver on these policies as it is our responsibility to ensure the animals in our care are placed into the safest and healthiest environment possible. No exceptions made.

* You must be at least 21 years old to adopt
* The entire household must be in agreement about adopting the animal you choose
* You may not adopt for someone else or for a gift
* We encourage that all dogs under 3 years old attend training sessions, either private or group 
* Dogs and cats must live indoors
* Dogs require fencing. Please read our fencing policy which can be found here, by pasting this URL into a new browser window: https://www.ggohinc.com/ggohfencingpolicy
* No declawing of cats allowed

Adoption Process for Dogs:

* Agree to our Fencing Policy
* Complete and submit an adoption application
* Your application will be reviewed and references contacted
* Application approved - we will contact you to set up an appointment for you (and your family) to meet the dog
* Application denied - you are contacted and informed of denial
* If dog meeting goes well, a home visit is then scheduled
* And finally, if everything works out, a pick-up time will be set for you to bring your new canine companion home

Adoption Process for Cats:

* Agree to our Indoor Living and No Declawing policies 
* Come to our facility to meet the potential cat to be adopted (we will not adopt cats out sight-unseen). Public visitation hours for cats, daily: 9am - 12noon & 5pm - 8pm
* Complete and submit an adoption application (you are welcome to do this ahead of time, but we still require you to come meet the animal you wish to adopt)
* Your application will be reviewed and references  contacted
* Application approved - we will contact you to set up a pick-up time for you to bring your new feline companion home
* Application denied - you are contacted and informed of denial

Our applications can be found on our website or, cut and paste the below URLs into a new browser window:

Dogs - https://form.jotform.us/71966836695174
Cats - https://form.jotform.us/72185970695167

NOTE: If you live in an apartment, town home, condo or rent a single family home, do you have permission from your landlord or association to house an animal? Proof of this is required BEFORE we can continue with any adoption request. We will not consider an adoption application until we have this authorization in hand. Please be sure your authorization form contains your property owner's name and phone number as we will call to validate.

​We cannot guarantee a time-frame for completion of the full process - each application has its own considerations and if there are multiple applications for the same animal, the process is obviously lengthened. Exit veterinary visits can sometimes take a few days depending on their availability. You must also take into consideration that we are an animal "rescue" facility and emergencies often arise which take precedence over everything.  We will do our best, however, to move things along in as timely a manner as we possibly can.
