Love Them!

Once you take your new pup home, a new life begins for all!

Just like people, every dog is different since he/she has been exposed to different things and will react in different ways. Always put them in comfortable situations. Even though you have a loving home to offer them, you are still an “unknown” and they will slowly learn to trust you as well as the new routine and expectations.

Here are some resources to help you be successful, and some Happy Tails of others who have adopted/been adopted!

Return policy

We understand sometimes an adoption doesn't work out and we will take back our adopted dogs. We are here to support you in this process and need you to partner with us and begin communicating early if there are any concerns. Each return is handled on a case-by-case basis. The more information you can provide for us, the better decisions we can make about his/her viability within our program.

Please follow these steps:

  • Begin email communications with the Adoptions team as soon as possible. (Adoptions@savinggracenc.org)
  • Request and receive a scheduled, confirmed appointment to return your dog.
  • Complete a relinquish form and bring with you:
    • the original medical sheet
    • adoption packet including rabies vaccination certificates and tags and microchip information
    • UPDATED medical record information from your vet
  • Remember- a partial refund of your adoption fee in the amount of $295 is offered within 7 days.

Please note: While we accept our adopted dogs back, we will not knowingly place aggressive animals into another home. In these instances the dog will be fully evaluated and observed once returned before acclimating back into our program.

If you need copies of your records after Adoption has already taken place, we charge a $25 Administrative Fee that must be paid by credit card prior to the records being pulled from archives and copies sent.

Congratulations!!

STEP 1: Understand the responsibility

Make sure you understand how adopting a pet will impact your life.

STEP 2: Fill out our adoption request form

STEP 3: Take them home

Once we agree you’ve found your new pet, pay your adoption fee, and take them home!

YOU ARE HERE

STEP 4: Love them forever!

We have some great resources to help smooth the transition, and keep your pup happy and healthy!

Happy Tails!

Tails are wagging for today's happy tail! Auggie's (fka Gertie) adopters shared the below update with us. We are pretty sure most of us can relate to Auggie and love a good couch nap. "Thanks for reaching out. Auggie, aka Gertie, is doing great. She's becoming a great dog. She has become the center of our home and we don't know what we'd do without her around. She's graduated puppy training, been out and about on the town with us but really loves sleeping on the couch. "#adopted #weloveourvolunteers #happytails ... See MoreSee Less

Our Happy Tail today is featuring Tucker. Tucker was a long time SG resident and holds a very special place in our hearts. We couldn't be more thrilled with this update <3 "Tucker is doing fantastic!!! I could not have imagined or hoped for a better dog. He gets along well with both of my other dogs, but he and Bolli have formed a special bond and act almost like litter mates, even though they are three years apart in age. They rough house together, and chase each other in the yard, and in the house, and even though he could easily overpower her, he is amazingly gentle with her.Tucker and I have also formed a very tight bond. He is attentive to where I am and what I ask him to do. And it is clear to me that he is genuinely joyful when I come home. Fortunately, because of my role as a pastor in a parish, I am able to bring him with me 90% of the time. He sits in on interviews with parishioners, and helps me console the grieving. Multiple people have asked if he is a service dog because of how great he is with them. I’m pretty sure that there is not a day that goes by that I have not called my sister and bragged about him.In my opinion, he is the perfect dog, and he was well cared for by saving grace until he found his forever home with me. Thank you so much for the wonderful way you nurtured him while he was with you. I have attached a few pictures of Tucker in action. Enjoy! Please feel free to ask questions about anything that I have not addressed or have us come out for a visit so you can see him in person if you would like."#adopted #weloveourvolunteers #happytails ...

Oh sweet Tucker! Makes my heart happy that he found his perfect home. It was always a joy to see him at the farm!

Tucker!!! I’m so happy he’s doing so well! He is a great dog and I’m glad he offers joy, fun, comfort and love. Sounds like he has excellent listening skills to the parishioners. I’d love to stop by and see our boy!! Thank you thank you for giving him the best life imaginable!!!! I do miss that boy. I think all the shift workers do.

I'm so happy for Tucker. I spent 2 hours with him at Saving Grace when we were looking in Feb 2023 and he is a sweet boy, but didn't seem like a match for us. I'm so glad he stayed with SG until a truely great home came looking for his big self. Wonderful update. Congrats for finding the right dog at the right time.

My Tucker boy!!!! So happy he has his family. He’s clearly happy and healthy and well loved. ❤️

So happy Tucker found his forever home.

I love hearing this!!! He is a special one for sure!! Thank you for the update! ❤️

He is such a great dog!

I love this. He waited an extra long time to find his perfect home!! I hope he’s playing ball as much as he wants!!

Tucker you are one lucky doggie!! Enjoy your new family and home

What joy this brings to my heart ❤️

Any chance that Tucker was part of the litter that originally had names for sauces? He looks much like our Lucy from SG (a.k.a. “Yum Yum”), born in Dec. 2022. Her temperament is also wonderful!

💜💜

Love this.

Sweet!!!
