Our Adoption Process

We're so excited you're considering adopting your new best friend!  So let's talk about our Adoption Process.

Shenandoah Shepherd Rescue adopts all over the continental United States.*  It is our goal to adopt our dogs into homes which match their individual needs best. This means that while you may apply for a certain dog, there is no guarantee your preferred dog will be a good match for your home.  Our Adoption Application is designed to ensure both you & your new best friend are a perfect match! 

Below is a step-by-step overview of what you can expect as you move through our Adoption Process.


  • We will not discuss adoption details regarding SSR dogs unless you have applied to adopt.

  • All dogs (6mo and older) will be spayed/neutered.

  • All dogs will be microchipped, and up-to-date on vaccinations prior to finalizing adoption.

  • Our Adoption Fees are $325 for dogs 8 weeks - 6 Years, and $250 for dogs 7 Years +

*Adopters are required to travel to meet and adopt any dog from SSR.  SSR does not transport dogs to adopters.
