Read in FULL Before Continuing 

We are a 100% VOLUNTEER run organization with no paid employees. It can take a a little while to process your application, depending on the amount of applications received. This means, please be patient and understanding with our volunteers. If you cannot do this, you will be denied and blocked from adopting through SGER. Once you submit the application, please check your email regularly, including your spam folder, for a reply. If we want to continue the adoption process, we WILL send an email with the next steps. Look for the addresses below:

We do not and will NOT do same day adoptions and you cannot come walk the property to "choose" a dog/puppy.

ALL adopters must go through the same screening process listed below before adopting. Approval is needed for meet and greets prior to adoption, this will help prevent time wasted for all. 

Fenced yards are not required for all animals and we will choose the best home for the animals based on information given. 

Please read this in full before continuing as there are several requirements needed to proceed with an adoption and we do not want to waste anyone’s time. Failure to comply with any of the steps, will result in the application being denied.

Policies and procedures
On adoption day: 
For Cats: you only need a collar and current ID tag.   
For Dogs: You must provide your own collar/harness, leash, and ID tag with your information on it. We highly suggest you also have on hand canned pumpkin and plain Greek yogurt, if there will be any food change, to help control loose stools. We can provide sizing information for supplies. 

If you are adopting a puppy under the age of 6 months, you understand that it is your obligation to spay/neuter your puppy between the age of 6 to 10 months. If you do not do this and send in proof it has been done, you will be required to return the puppy/dog immediately.  This is a requirement not a request.
