Thanks for your interest in adopting one of our Grey Face dogs! This application is not binding, and it does not necessarily mean you will adopt a dog, only that you are interested in meeting the animal to decide whether you would like to adopt.
Meeting one of our adoptable dogs does not guarantee adoption. We often receive multiple applications for the same animal and must make a determination on what home is best for each dog. Unfortunately, this means that sometimes we have to turn down great people for adoption on a particular dog – please don’t take that personally!
Other things to note:
Once you submit your application, our adoption manager will be in touch,
so please check your spam folder if you do not see something from us within 7-10 days.
Thank you again for your interest in a Grey Face senior. We appreciate your support!
