Adoption Application

As of January 1, 2022, we are not accepting applications for adoption as we have an overabundance of potential adopters already waiting to adopt. However, if there is a dog on our website and applications are not closed, we invite you to apply. Please do not apply for a dog whose profile states that applications are closed as that creates additional administrative work for our volunteers.

Be sure to follow us on Facebook and Instagram and subscribe to our email list for updates on when applications will re-open.


Due to COVID-19, adoption applications are currently closed.

Prior to submitting the Golden Beginnings Adoption Application below, please complete the following two steps:

  1. Read our Adoption Requirements.
  2. Review a PDF of our Adoption Contract here (you will receive your actual Adoption Contract when you finalize your adoption).
  3. Submit your application fee. After submitting the fee here, you will be redirected back to this page so that you can complete your adoption application. Adoption applications will not be processed until you have submitted your application fee. Click here to submit the fee.

Done? Great!
