How do I adopt from Saving Grace?

We provide a unique adoption experience to pair you with dogs that fit your needs and profile.

Host a Dog for a Weekend!

Most weekends, we have dogs that would love to sleepover at YOUR house.

Join our Foster Team

Before our guests are ready for adoption, they often need to spend some time in foster getting healthy and socialized. Do you have space in your house and your heart to help out?

Volunteer with Us!

There is always a lot to do both at the farm and off to support the mission of Saving Grace. Let's see if there's something that you can do to help us out!

Willie Nelson my best buddy. Walked me around/patrolled the neighborhood and protects me as always 😉

Ghost ( previously Althea from Saving Grace) loved her snow day! ❄️

Mine was so excited about the snow! Loved playing outside!

Sasha (formerly Amaya) did what she knew how to do. If I let go of the leash she would of pulled the kids around the block.

My pups got baths- not happy!😂

This gorgeous gal Glencoe is ready for her furever home! Check out what her host family said about their sleepover with Glencoe:"Glencoe is a super sweet dog and will make a great family addition!When we picked her up she literally tried to sit on me the whole drive home. From that moment I was her person, following my every move. Once we arrived home she stayed with me as I moved about the house. At night she went in the crate but still wanted to be near me, so we slept near each other and she did great all night.She quickly warmed up and was very gentle with our three kids (ages 2-11). She will just need a little time adjusting to sudden movements and loud noises. We took a couple of walks and she was curious about many things she saw along the way. She will need someone to work with her a little more on her leash walking but she is super smart and willing to learn!!By just the second day, she had settled in even more and began to play with the toys we bought for her and relaxed with us as we watched a movie. She does seem to love to be on the couch to curl up with people!! She is so sweet and gentle, and she hardly barked during her entire stay. She did great eating all of her meals and taking her bathroom breaks outside. She also had great table manners, settling next to me as we ate our meals at the table. We hope she finds her forever home soon!"Glencoe is ready to meet you!!! To schedule an appointment to meet this sweet girl, submit an adoption request on our website's 'Adopt' page. ...

Romeo, oh Romeo! You just have to meet sweet Romeo! Before you make an appointment to meet this fabulous guy, read all about his sleepover last weekend:"I had the pleasure of hosting Romeo this weekend and what a sweet little dude he was! He is a little apprehensive when it comes to getting in the car, but once he is in, he does well and relaxed in the back. When we got home on the first night, he sniffed for about a second and immediately jumped on the couch. As soon as I sat down he immediately snuggled in. Romeo LOVES humans (children included!!) as long as they love kisses. He is very curious about other dogs and will be able to quickly learn how to properly say hello to other dogs on leash. He is definitely still a puppy but does pretty well on a leash. He didn't pull much and if he did he was very easily corrected. He likes to make sure his human is still close by so he'll stop and look back!He loved his toy and loved tossing it around and catching it, but his absolute favorite past-time is snuggling. He nudges his blanket to let you know he wants to be wrapped in it or under it and will pass out in your lap, along your side or on your feet and can stay there for HOURS. By the last day, his true puppy energy kicked in and he explored my place a little more, and any signs of common puppy behaviors were very easily corrected. He didn't mind his crate once he got in and slept through the night each night with no issues. I left him in his crate for a few hours while I wasn't home - he easily went in when I left and was just sweetly curled up in it when I got back. He wasn't super bothered by the noises that come with living in an apartment (people going up and down stairs, other dogs, etc) - he notices but didn't bark. The only time he barked was when he saw his own reflection in the window at night 😂. He is also a great workout partner, really tries to motivate you by licking your face and jumping when you start jumping around!!Ultimately Romeo is a sweet boy with playful bursts of energy who mostly prefers to sleep and snuggle with his human but is also cool with seeing lots of other human friends and will 100% melt your heart! He will make a perfect companion!"To meet Romeo, schedule an appointment by submitting an adoption request on our website's "Adopt" page. To host great dogs like Romeo, sign up for our next weekend sleepover on our "Host a Dog" page.Learn more about Romeo: loom.ly/yhmUNco ... See MoreSee Less

We have Juliet in the Dog House and I remarked earlier this evening while walking her outside, “Juliet huh? Where’s your Romeo???” Apparently we DO have him. 😂

Oh I love him!!! He’s so cute!

He sounds perfect

Host Update for Gridley!!! Gridley is a big, beautiful hound that enjoys all the people friend and dog friends on the farm. He is searching for a wonderful furever home (and maybe a cozy couch or a yard to play in)! Check out what his host said about their weekend sleepover:"Gridley is incredibly loving and trusting of humans. He sought pets constantly, and if you were distracted doing so he gave you a gentle paw-reminder to keep it up! He loved couch time most of all, and cuddled up for movie night as though he were a small dog. While a natural with leash walking, we would recommend some consistent reminders as he sometimes pulled towards dogs to say hello on walks. High marks to him, as Gridley knew to only go the bathroom outside, and quickly pottied when on walks!!He was outstanding in his crate. He was happy to eat and sleep there, and was quiet the entire time (besides some endearing snores!). He slept until we awoke him each morning (a solid 8 hours!). He was great in the car too, settling in immediately and happily, without any clue where he was headed. Gridley is highly food motivated and not picky, which will make him a quick study when it comes to training. He is a speedy learner, be it climbing stairs, sitting for treats, or hopping on the couch. He also adjusted to our routine seamlessly. He was indifferent to our 20 pound terrier and let her do her own thing; this meant ignoring her attempts to play - he was all about pleasing the humans in the house.Gridley was an absolute delight to have over the weekend and we already miss him dearly! We cannot wait for Gridley to make his forever family as happy as he made us."Are you looking for the best boy to make you happy every single day?! Gridley is your boy! To schedule an appointment and meet Gridley, submit an adoption request on our website. Gridley will be eagerly awaiting your arrival and can't wait to meet you!!!Learn more about Gridley: loom.ly/-PhsRsM ... See MoreSee Less

Kira is a sweet, calm, gorgeous girl looking for a perfect home. Check out what her host said about their weekend together:"Kira is the sweetest girl with not one ounce of aggression in her body! She is a little shy and timid, but she warms up quickly. She quickly chose her safe space in our house - a corner by the door in the mudroom - and took lots of naps there. She did great in her crate overnight and told us when she needed to go outside to potty. She is very sensitive to and nervous of unfamiliar noises at first. She quickly got used to noises around the house - washer/dryer, microwave, etc. - but she was very nervous of cars on the street when we went outside. She did okay walking on a leash but will benefit from some practice in a quieter area without scary noises. She also did fine with our dog, following him around in the yard and nicely co-existing. She seemed comfortable with him and did not seem territorial with food or toys. She ate well and was polite with treats. She will easily fit into the life of a lucky person or family!"If you're looking for a loving and gentle girl to join your pack, Kira is ready to meet you!

Kira is so lovely and sweet! It has been wonderful to see her blossom on the farm, at first quiet and shy-learning to trust the volunteers , her new surroundings. Now she welcomes all the love and care she receives! Her confidence has increased tenfold and her beautiful, gentle spirit shines brighter every day ❤️ Thank you for hosting our sweet girl!

She and her brothers deserve the best homes after their previous life. Whoever adopts them will be super lucky.

Jenn King Pelzer Saving Grace has 3 of these guys right now and they reminded me so much of your guy! I'm sure they're not really Irish terriers but just thought I would share in case you were interested!

Love her. she is so sweet looking!

She is a beauty inside and out!

Say hi to Hoss! This gorgeous dude can't wait to find his cozy furever home where he can snuggle with his humans and curl up by the fireplace. He had the best time with his host family over the weekend doing all of his favorite things. Check out what his host family said about their weekend sleepover with Hoss:"We had a wonderful long weekend with Hoss in the house! What a well-behaved and sweet boy. From the moment we picked him up for the car ride home, we were smitten with his curiosity, energy and warm disposition. He loved snuggling up next to us on the couch, switching only to curl up in front of the fireplace with a chew toy, and was eager to show us his ability to sit, lie down and even go to the door when he needed to go outside. I am happy to report Hoss had no accidents! We never heard him bark the entire weekend. He's just a fun, easy-going, chill dude. Hoss is going to make some lucky family a wonderful companion!"Hoss is the best boy looking for the best family to snuggle up with.
