Adoption Process

  1. Complete an online application via our website or for a specific dog using Petfinder. Completing the online application is the first step and does not obligate you in any way.

  2. An adoption coordinator will contact you. Applications are regularly reviewed, but please allow up to one week for processing.

  3. Once you have spoken to an adoption coordinator, we’ll call your veterinarian to ensure that your current/previous pets have been spayed/neutered, vaccinated, and well cared for. For renters, we’ll check with your landlord to verify applicable pet policies, and whether there are any size or breed restrictions.

  4. If everything looks good and you want to process, we will arrange a Meet and Greet. We require adopters to meet our adoptable pets in person, and therefore prioritize applicants in the Savannah, GA area.

  5. After a successful Meet and Greet, we will schedule a home visit. Due to Covid-19, most home visits are currently virtual.

  • ​Applicants must be at least 21 years old.

  • Information for senior adopters here.

  • Applications are reviewed in the order in which they are received.

  • We focus on matching the right animal to the right family to ensure successful adoptions.

  • Our goal is to place these wonderful pets into homes where they will be safe and loved forever.

  • We do not transport or ship animals outside the greater Savannah area.

  • All of our rescue dogs are fostered in private homes. Please allow for flexibility in coordinating the adoption and review process.

What is included in your adoption?

Upon adoption, all dogs are microchipped with lifetime registration, spayed or neutered, and fully vaccinated. This includes bordetella (kennel cough), DA2PP, and rabies vaccinations. All dogs are heartworm tested and receive monthly flea and heartworm preventatives throughout the duration of their time with Renegade Paws Rescue.

Adoption fees help offset the medical, transport, supply, and other expenses associated with rescuing our animals. The expenses for each rescued animal almost always exceed our adoption fee for them.

Please note that adoption fees are not tax-deductible. Online payments preferred.
