adoption isn't always easy


Thank you for considering a rescue dog. We have a lot of wonderful pooches available to suit every lifestyle and we're sure we can help you find the perfect friend. Rescue dogs are not broken or bad, they simply have been let down by their human guardians. Many are purebred, some were surrendered while others were found in the street. All of our rescue dogs will provide a lifetime of love and companionship. 

All our dogs are vet checked, spayed/neutered, vaccinated and micro-chipped prior to adoption.

Adoption fee: $300 per adult dog; $400 per puppy under seven months.

Fees help with the cost of spay/neuter, shots and microchip, and allow us to continue our work saving homeless dogs. If you cannot afford the fee there are grant opportunities available. To be considered for an adoption grant, please fill out the adoption application to get started.


  • You must be 21 years of age or older and live within six hours of the greater Los Angeles area in order to adopt a dog from GRFF.

  • Filling out an application does not guarantee adoption. GRFF reserves the right to refuse adoption to any applicant for any reason.

What to expect when adopting​

Our ultimate goal is to ensure that we find our rescued dogs a FUREVER home, so that they’ll never have to face abuse and neglect for their rest of their lives. What this means is that we strive to be meticulous and ensure that the adoption is a good fit between dog and adopter.


When thinking about adopting a rescued dog, please consider the following:


  • We will be transparent when communicating all of the details that we are aware of in regards to the dog you’d like to adopt.


  • We do our best to learn as much as we can about a rescued dog for as long as they are under our care.


  • Please note that we are not trainers and we can’t predict a rescued dog’s habit once removed from its foster home.


  • To ensure a smooth transition for your new adoption, we suggest investing in a trainer. Please check back for more information on our trainer recommendations.
