Adoption Application

We have been experiencing a gradual but significant decline in the number of dogs coming into Rescue for the past 10+ years. This resulted in a long waiting list – so long that we stopped accepting adoption applications in January 2018.  In June we resumed accepting adoption applications.  However, most people will wait a long time and many will not get a dog from us.  We request your patience with this process and encourage you to explore other avenues to acquire a dog including considering another breed or a mixed-breed.

If after reading this you are interested in adopting, please submit an EGRR Adoption Application.  We require an adoption application, home visit, reference check but are waiving the $25.00 adoption application fee.

There are two payment options for our Adoption Application.

1) PayPal, Click on the “Add to Cart” button below and then the “Checkout with PayPal” button. Please retain your PayPal Transaction ID to be entered when you start filling out the EGRR Adoption Application. Upon payment completion return back to this page to complete your choice of application forms below.



2) Mailing in a check. If mailing, please make your check payable to E.G.R.R. and send it to:

Evergreen Golden Retriever Rescue
PO Box 3088
Renton, Washington  98056


Please fill out the form completely and choose your method of payment for the $25.00 application fee.  If you choose to pay by sending in a check, please write “sending check” where it asks for the Paypal number. A phone number is required to process your application.  Submitting this application is the first step in adopting a homeless Golden Retriever but it does not guarantee that you will be approved to adopt a dog, as we reserve the right to refuse any applicant.
