Thank you for applying to adopt a rescue pet! A volunteer will be in contact with you within 48-72 hours for most pets. For German shepherd dogs, applications may take up to 10 -14 days to process. To help speed up the application process, please read the Adoption & Application Process page and follow through with sending a virtual home visit. If you do not hear from someone within that allotted time and would like to inquire, our phone number is 269-671-5257.
