Interested adopters and SEVA GRREAT supporters:

During the winter holiday season we are going to temporarily “paws” the adoption process. We would like you to understand why, so here are the reasons.

First, it is very important for a newly adopted Golden to join his/her forever family when things are at their most "normal". The holidays are anything but "normal" in most households ~ it's a hectic time of year with more of everything ~ more traveling, more time away from home shopping and visiting, more guests, more food...and this can be very stressful for a new Golden family member.

Second, our dedicated volunteers are also busy with their families and need a well-deserved break during the holidays.

Also, many of the millions of homeless pets in North America are pets that were returned or abandoned as a result of an "impulse" buy. Since many pets are bought impulsively during the holidays, we support "no pet buying" over the holiday season. 

Adoption applications are now closed and will reopen in the new year. Soon, we also will not be posting any dogs as available for adoption to our already approved families until after the holidays.

In the meantime, all the Goldens in our care are happily spending this time with their wonderful foster families and are safe and sound and happy (so worry not)! They're even probably sharing in the spoils of leftover turkey.

We will be back up and running again in the new year and hopefully we will be able to find many dogs their new families and homes then. We at SEVA GRREAT would like to thank you for being rescue-minded, and wish you and your family a very happy holiday season!
