Adoption Application

If you have visited the ‘Adopt’ menu tab to see the available pets page (on Petfinder), you may have noticed that God’s Dogs Rescue is working with other Texas rescues (who also list their fosters under God’s Dogs Rescue.) Although we rescue from the San Antonio area, we are adopting to qualified families in the Pacific Northwest and Northeast through alliances with dedicated rescuers there. Visit Your TX Rescue Connection to find out more!

Approximately 90% of the dogs and puppies we save have no easily identifiable breed history (They don’t carry their ID card 🙂 ) We use many ways to help identify the breed mixes they may be i.e. size, temperament, appearance, special characteristics. However, on the streets of San Antonio many, many, many dogs wander around unaltered, so the possibilities are literally endless… We will give you our best estimate of what their breed mix is as well as their own individual characteristics and what we feel their approximate size and weight will be when grown.

Thank you for understanding, AND THANK YOU for adopting!!!
We couldn’t do this without YOU!
