As of July 1, 2016, AGR charges a $25 nonrefundable adoption application fee. If, after an application review and a home evaluation the applicant is approved and a dog is placed with the applicant, we will subtract the $25 fee from the dog’s adoption fee. If the applicant does not qualify to adopt, or if AGR is unable to place a dog with the applicant within a year, the $25 becomes a donation and will be acknowledged accordingly.
