Colorado Front Range German Shepherd Rescue
Adoption Application

Thank you for interest in our rescue and for taking the time to complete this adoption application. Please keep in mind that your answers will permit us to more effectively match your needs with a dog in our program.  If you would prefer that we send you this questionnaire via email or through the regular mail, please let us know.

We ask a minimum donation of $250 for any dog 1-6 years old. $100 for dogs over 6. Puppies $250--$375, depending on the age. Occasionally we ask a little more or a little less for a certain dog, depending on our expenses incurred. If you're a senior and would consider a senior GSD we would love to work with you!

We will contact you once your application is approved. This may take about 10-14 days.
