Adoption Application

This Application is for your benefit as well as ours. The information you provide will enable us to better determine exactly what you are looking for when adopting a senior dog, which dog will fit best into your lifestyle, and how a Tails of Gray dog would fit into your home. Please be as detailed in your answers as possible to help ensure the best match between you and one of our senior dogs.  Remember, this is a lifetime commitment.

The $200 adoption fee helps cover the cost of the initial rescue, vaccinations, spay/neuter, microchipping and other medical/health expenses incurred in caring for the dogs and helping to get them ready for adoption.


By signing and submitting this application, I certify that all of the information I have given above is true and complete.
