We are no longer open for meet and greets on

Saturday afternoons after 1.30pm or Sundays.

Please read and answer all questions thoroughly.

It is ADVISED to not work on this application on a phone, some people have issues, spend time completing it, only to have problems submitting it.

If the form won't submit then it is something that has been missed or not completed properly, there is nothing we can do and ONLY accept applications through this form.

All pets are located at the rescue in Sebec, Maine. If you see a dog posted in another state, the dog is still located at the rescue in Sebec. Be sure to check the distance and decide if you are willing and able to travel here.

We are a rescue, not a staffed funded shelter. We do not allow walk-in's we work strictly on an appointment basis only. Appointments are only given once applications have been approved.

We post in various states along the east coast and Canada where we have had lots of successful adoptions to enable more exposure for these beautiful saved souls. Families will need to be prepared to travel to the rescue to meet and take home their new best friend. Sebec is located just outside the towns of Dover-Foxcroft and Milo (approx 8 miles) and approx 45 miles from Bangor. There are also lots of hotels, motels, pet friendly accommodations  and wonderful camp-sites for the more adventurous families and what a great way to get to know your new best friend. Adoption fee's are in US DOLLARS.


  • Call your vets office and give them permission to talk to GaDaH, do this BEFORE you submit the application.
  • You will need 2 or 3 personal references. These need to be people who have known you for a few years and can talk about your lifestyle in general. Speak to them BEFORE you complete the application, find out what times they are available and what is the best number to contact them on. Do not just presume or guess. Your references are the key to your application getting processed quickly. 
  • If there is a link for you to click on, it is best to "right click and open in a different window" otherwise your information will be lost!

We cannot  / will not process applications if information is missing or incorrect. 

Applicants MUST be 21 years or older to adopt a pet from GaDaH

This is a LONG application,  this is because we take this process seriously and the more information we can gather, the better we are able to be sure it is a right fit for the dog and family. We ALWAYS take our pets back should it not work out, in fact this is written into the adoption contract you will complete if you are approved, however, it is best for pets, families and the rescue if we get it right the first time in finding the perfect forever home. We appreciate you understanding and being part of the solution in saving dogs lives.

Please be sure to check your email specifically because if we are not able to respond to receiving the application, we are not able to move forward on processing it. This happens often!

We DO contact current and former veterinarians and references.

Due to the rescue being extremely busy and not sat at a desk all day - most correspondence, other than application interviews is conducted by email. 

We reserve the right to deny an adoption for any reason at our sole discretion.
