Temporary change in Adoption Policy

Sadly, with the present situation regarding the COVID-19 restrictions, we need to make a few TEMPORARY  adjustments:
Effective immediately, we are suspending out-of-state adoptions longer than a 3 hour drive from our location in Bath, OH.
We will also be prioritizing the apps that presently have a fence and another dog, due to the fact that the majority of our rescues are Mill Dogs.
If you do not presently have a dog, but have a fence and are seriously willing to adopt a pair, we will also put your application on our priority list.

Please keep in mind, this is a temporary situation, but one we must implement. Our first priority is finding the right forever home for our precious rescues.
We also have to be considerate of those who step up to meet our needs by volunteering. 
We are in unchartered territory at this moment and we ask you to be patient as we navigate through the ever-changing restrictions being set by our state to keep everyone safe and healthy.

Emergency Plans for Your Dog

Golden Treasures requests what may seem to be a lot of information, but our goal is to find the right fit for you and for our dog.  We ask about your home, interest, and lifestyle and then work to have that coincide with our dog's social, exercise and training needs.  Our application process is designed to match the attributes and personality of our rescued Goldens to the home best-suited to each dog.  If you are able to provide the special home that a rescued Golden deserves, we hope to be able to match you with the right dog.

 FOR OUT-OF-STATE APPLICATIONS, IF YOU ARE APPROVED AND MATCHED WITH A DOG, YOU WILL BE REQUIRED TO MAKE THE DRIVE ALL THE WAY TO US, BRINGING THE FAMILY AND ANY DOGS YOU CURRENTLY HAVE.  IF THE ADOPTION DOESN'T WORK OUT, YOU WILL HAVE TO BRING THE DOG ALL THE WAY BACK TO US.

ENTERING YOUR INITIALS IN THE FIRST FIELD BELOW, INDICATES YOU HAVE READ THE ABOVE REQUIREMENT AND AGREE TO SAME.

Agreement & Signature
TERMS & CONDITIONS

The information I have provided in this Adoption Application Form is accurate and complete.

I understand and accept that Golden Treasures' adoption and matchmaking process involves mutual decision-making between the adopter, the adoption team and the foster home and is based on determining which family or individual can best meet the needs of each dog in the program.  Golden Treasures' adoption team will take my preferences regarding age, activity level, etc. into consideration, but the completion of this application does not in any way guarantee that Golden Treasures will adopt a dog to me.

If I adopt a dog from Golden Treasures, it will reside in my home as a pet.  I will provide it with adequate shelter, food, water, training, affection and medical care, including monthly heartworm preventatives.

I understand that I must consent to an interview and a home visit before approval to adopt a Golden Treasures dog is granted.  Reference checks may also be required.

I understand and agree that Golden Treasures may refuse my application for any reason, at its sole discretion.  I also understand that Golden Treasures may not disclose the reason for not approving my application, in order to maintain the privacy of both myself and the Golden Treasures volunteers.

I understand that upon completing an adoption, I must sign a mutually acceptable Animal Adoption Contract, which shall be provided by Golden Treasures.
