Adopt Your New Best Friend!

Thank you for considering adopting a rescue dog!  GSRNE works very hard to match the right dog with our adopters, so that you’ll be happy and our dogs will have a forever home. We place dogs in the six New England states (ME, NH, VT, MA, CT, RI).

  • The adoption fee for our dogs is: $300 for dogs ranging in age from puppies to age seven
  • $150 for seniors, age eight and older

The fees help us meet expenses incurred by our nonprofit organization, although our average expense per rescue dog is approximately $2,000 each. These include the following if they have not already been given to the dog before coming into GSRNE’s program:

Spay or Neutering

  • They are all spayed or neutered prior to adoption

Vaccines:

  • Distemper, Hepatitis, Leptospirosis, Parainfluenza and Parvovirus (DHLPP)
  • Rabies
  • Bordetella
  • Lyme

Tests:

  • Heartworm, Lyme, Elrichea, and Anaplasma (4DX)
  • Fecal
  • Complete blood panel for seniors dogs or dogs that have apparent health issues

Exam:

  • Check for any apparent health issues
  • Microchip implanted

Flea, Tick & Heartworm Treatment

  • Flea, tick and heartworm preventatives

Grooming

  • Sometimes our dogs come in needing a grooming (bath and nail clipping) and we try to have this done either before the dog goes into a foster home or when they get to the foster home if the foster home is unable to bathe the dog.

Training

  • Some dogs require professional training to work on additional skills and socialization to prepare them for a happy and healthy life.

Boarding

  • At times we need to board our dogs.  It is usually because the dog needs out of the situation it is in and we don’t have a foster home available.
