Kipley is a 10 year old yellow lab that weighs approximately 65 pounds. Don’t let his age fool you though; he has lots of energy that he likes to use throughout the day!

Kipley is great with people of all ages, is very gentle and respectful of children. He does not jump or nip at them ever. He is very docile and knows how to control himself when in their presence. Kipley has never met a stranger in his life – he likes to think of every person as a friend, regardless of if he has met them or not. He is also currently living with two cats and just ignores them, he never chases them – they aren’t interesting enough in his opinion. Kipley is also good with other dogs. He can be a bit shy around dominant dogs but he has never been aggressive when approached by a dominant dog.

Kipley is house trained and can hold his bladder for 8-9 hours. He is crated while his foster is away and behaves excellent in his kennel. He calms down immediately when he is in the crate and he has never had an accident while in it (he will bark if he needs to go potty). Kipley does shed some but he LOVES to be brushed so a couple of good brushes a week will really limit the amount of shedding in the house.

Although he is great in the house, he loves to be outside running around and exploring. He would do best in a home with a fenced in yard but he currently does not live in town and respects the boundaries of his yard. Kipley’s favorite thing to do outside is play fetch! He loves his tennis balls and will throw them at you to get your attention. This is the one of the only times he will bark, in order to get your attention. Kipley could play fetch for hours on end, his foster family is working on creating a specific time and place for the game‐ otherwise he can get too worked up about it. Kipley is also great on walks, he doesn’t pull on the leash and tends to walk in a straight line.

*Kipley is currently on medication for his thyroid. It is just one pill a day, which is foster hides in his food.

Kipley is such a loving and peaceful dog. He is very well behaved, gets along great with everyone and everything, doesn’t require a lot of supervision (he keeps himself entertained), and he loves to play – he is going to make some family VERY happy, could it be you?

About Grey Face Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Grey Face Rescue & Retirement focuses on dogs age 7 and older. We accept all seniors into our rescue and hospice care. We don't discriminate against specific breeds, medical conditions, behaviors or history – we believe all senior dogs deserve a second chance. Our volunteers work tirelessly to match each of our seniors with a specific foster for their continued care. We also seek special and educated adopters to give our seniors their forever homes. We're a 100% volunteer-run organization and rely heavily on our dedicated volunteers and fosters to help keep our organization humming, as well as on generous support and donations from the community.

Our Adoption Process...

Grey Face Rescue’s goal is to place our foster dogs into loving homes and families. We take special care to match the right home with the right dog, ensuring a lifetime of love for both the pet and the adopter. To ensure the best matches are made, we have a process that has been proven effective in determining the best homes for our animals. Our adoption process may seem time consuming or unnecessarily complicated, but please understand that we have our dogs’ best interests at heart. We strive to find the best homes possible for our dogs, as well as find the right dog for you and your lifestyle.

Please understand that our organization is completely run by unpaid volunteers, who dedicate their free time to help the dogs. The entire adoption process takes time; we are unwilling to sacrifice being thorough when the dog’s future is at stake. We thank you for your time and patience throughout our adoption process.

Fill Out Adoption Application

If you're interested in adopting one of our dogs, let us know! Fill out an adoption application so we understand more about you and your lifestyle, training beliefs and background with animals.

Application Review

Our application volunteers will do an initial screening on your application to determine if all necessary information was provided. If not, we will contact you to either fill out another application or to provide additional information.


If you rent your home, we will contact your landlord to make sure you are approved to have a dog in your home. We also ask about any breed or size limitations.

If your landlord does not allow for a dog in your home, your application will be denied at this point.

If you are adopting a bully breed, we will contact your insurance company to ensure there are no breed restrictions within your policy.

Veterinary Reference Contacted

Our volunteers will contact your veterinary reference(s) to determine if all your current pets are spayed/neutered and up to date on vaccinations. If you don’t have any current pets, we will ask about the veterinary care that your previous pets received. If you have never owned a pet, we skip this step.

If your veterinary reference(s) cannot verify the spay/neuter and vaccination status of current or previous pets, processing of your application will stopp until you can provide this information.

Applicant Interview

A Grey Face Rescue volunteer will contact you via phone to get to know you better and ask any questions they may have.

Meet & Greet

Our organization does not have a shelter where you can visit the dogs. Our seniors are all living in foster homes. We do NOT arrange meetings between interested individuals and our fosters until an applicant has been approved via the adoption process.

Once approved, a volunteer (usually the foster) will contact you about scheduling a time to meet the dog(s) you are interested in. This meeting may occur at the foster’s residence or your home.

Please know, just because you are approved as a potential adopter, this does NOT mean you are guaranteed a particular dog. Some dogs receive many applications, and so we may allow multiple applicants to meet with the dog before we choose the home that is the best fit for the animal. If a volunteer involved in the meeting between you and the dog does not feel you are a good fit for that animal, you may be denied adoption for that particular dog. However, you may be allowed to adopt another dog.


If you have decided on a dog that you would like to adopt, and we agree it is a good fit, you will be required to sign an adoption contract and pay the adoption donation fee and spay/neuter deposit, if necessary. At that time, you become the dog's owner.
PayPal - The safer, easier way to pay online!

We will then provide:

A couple of cups of the dog food the dog has been eating.
A Grey Face Adoption tag
All medical and vet documents
A copy of the contract
A transition packet to help in the transition process, a letter from the dog's foster giving you more in-depth information about the dog's likes, dislikes, behaviors, etc.
Any specific toys or blankets the dog has become fond of while in the foster's home.

We have a two-week refund period, meaning if you decide the dog is not a good fit for your family and you return him/her within two weeks, we will return your adoption donation to you. The adoption fee will be deposited upon receipt and refunded only if the adopted dog is returned within this two-week timeframe (or any prior agreed-upon extension of the refund period).

If at any time you are having issues with the dog, please email or call your contact person and inform us. A volunteer will be in touch with you ASAP.

Post Adoption Follow-Up Visit

Our adoption contract allows one of our volunteers or a representative the ability to perform a follow-up visit. We may require such a visit if we feel that the terms of the adoption contract are not being met. Grey Face Rescue is committed to the life, health and well-being of every dog we place for the remainder of that dog’s life. Should the adoption not work out or if you need to rehome the dog, we require, by contract, that the dog be returned to us. Please notify your rep ASAP if this applies to you.
