Apply to Adopt

Please fill out the adoption application
to start your adoption journey!

You can also click here to download the Adoption Application and submit via email to [email protected] – please save it with a meaningful name (for example: John Doe – Adoption Application).

For assistance, call 317-759-3647. Our online forms have been recently repaired, but please be aware of potential bugs.

Submit the $25 application processing fee using the DONATE button through credit card or PayPal. Alternatively, payment via CHECK ONLY can be mailed to: P.O. Box 20125, Indianapolis, IN, 46220. Applications will be processed upon receipt of both the application and fee, with fees being non-refundable.

Applications will not be processed until the application and the application fee have both been received. Application fees are NON-REFUNDABLE.

Notify your personal references of potential calls, and grant permission to your veterinarian’s office to release your pets’ medical information to our rescue representative. This ensures a swift application process.

Processing time is estimated to take 2-4 weeks.

As a 100% volunteer-operated organization, FFGDR appreciates your patience. While we strive for timely processing, repeated inquiries will only prolong the process. We are committed to keeping applicants informed about their application status.
