GSRNY Rescue offers a personal touch. We work very hard to save, nurture and care for the lives of each and every dog we take into our program, so in turn, our application process is careful, and thorough.
We make it our mission to find our dogs the very best possible match, based on their needs, behavior, temperament and energy level, and consider heavily the wants, needs, experience and limitations of the adopters wanting a dog.
Returning a mismatched dog is painful and confusing for the dog, and painful for our team, seeing the dog suffer the consequences, and yet again, suffer more loss and upsetting change. It's unfair to the dog, so we ask that you are ready and prepared for this commitment, for the lifetime of the dog.
We seek responsible and loving adopters, who are willing to take the time to find the right match, and put their "all" into settling and training their new family member.
We understand our adoption process may not be for everyone, and encourage people to seek out their local shelters.
Help us learn more about you, your family, and your lifestyle. We ask that in addition to your application, you also include:
- Pictures of yourself, family & other pets
- Please include a couple photos of the inside and outside of your home. Due to COVID, a physical home check by one of our Representatives may not be possible. DUE TO COVID CONCERNS, IN PLACE OF HOME VISITS, EXTENDED PHONE INTERVIEWS AND PICTURES/VIDEOS OF THE HOME ARE REQUIRED.
-PLEASE FILL OUT YOUR APPLICATION WITH AS MUCH DETAIL AS POSSIBLE-

Please understand, we cannot process incomplete applications and will NOT notify you. Fully completed, detailed applications, will be processed in a timely manner, and you can expect to hear from GSRNY within 1 to 2 weeks of submitting your application.
The dogs keep us very busy. We often have rescue missions and emergencies that we need to handle. If you do not hear back within a week, please email us again to check in.
