Adoptable Pets

Adoption Procedures

Prospective adopters will be required to complete an adoption process, which includes:

  • an adoption application
  • a phone interview to review the application (if applicable)
  • a vet reference check (release of medical records for proof of vaccination history)
  • a home visit with the pet (if applicable)
  • if approved to adopt, you must pay the adoption fee and complete an adoption contract

We understand that not everyone will agree or be comfortable with our adoption policies, procedures, and requirements. Everyone has very different philosophies about pet ownership and what is in the best interest of a pet. Our beliefs are based on our knowledge and years of experience with various situations (mostly learning from others’ tragedies) and what we believe to be in the best interest of the pets that we have for adoption.

Adoption Policies

Thank you for your kind generosity in considering a GARD rescue shelter animal! It will take time and energy to nurture your new pet. In order to assist you in insuring its safety and well being, we urge you to review our adoption policies. Please give your new pet a week or two to settle into your home. Particular care should be exercised when letting the animal out. A newly relocated animal has no sense of home and should be kept on a leash or in a fenced-in area until this process has taken place (usually a few weeks at best). Do remember that your new pet has been, until recently, living in a kennel so home life constitutes a major adjustment on his/her part. It may not sleep through the night at first and may or may not be house trained. Other adjustment issues may present themselves if your home already has other pets. In our experience, time, love and patience will overcome most issues that arise. By submitting an adoption application, you consent to the following if approved for adoption (click the button below)

Adoption Application

Please take note of the animal LOCATION when viewing a particular animal. Some of our animals are in New Jersey foster homes and some are in Georgia foster homes or our shelter.
