Bring them Back

Drop-off time for our sleepover participants is typically at or around 7:00 pm on Sunday OR at or around 1:00 pm on Monday. Drop off will happen in the Saving Grace parking lot UNLESS OTHERWISE NOTED. Your specific time for drop-off will be included in your confirmation email.

Remember that Saving Grace is a PRIVATE residence. You may NOT drop in at any time. You must arrange with our weekend host coordinators for drop off other than our normal scheduled times if there is an emergency.

All visits to Saving Grace must be scheduled as we do not always have volunteers on site.

We sincerely appreciate you taking time to host a sleepover and open your home to a dog in need. Your time and efforts are invaluable.

A shelter environment and group housing are very stressful for dogs but a necessary process in their adoption journey. One on one time in a comfortable, cozy space is so important to any dog, especially those who have found themselves homeless and without a consistent home and family.

We do our very best to adopt the dogs into permanent homes as quickly as possible, but for some, the wait is longer than others.

Thank you for giving them a weekend home until they find their forever family.

Did you form a special connection with your sleepover guest?

All our dogs that go out for sleepovers are available for adoption. While we cannot 100% guarantee you will get your new buddy, start the process by filling out our adoption form. Be sure to let the adoption team know which dog you’ve connected with!
