Things to considerate before filling out this application

  • The applicant must live in Colorado year round.
  • Colorado Saint Bernard Rescue cannot adopt dogs to a home with children under 8 years old. An exception MAY be granted if the adopting family currently has a giant breed dog in the home.
  • If you are on active duty or reserve with the military, please wait to fill out the application until you have completed your service. We greatly appreciate all you do for our country.
The Colorado Saint Bernard Rescue is an all volunteer organization so it will take time to process your application. Please let your references know that we will be calling them. The longer it takes for them to call us back, the longer your application will take.
If you can not wait, please do not submit an application.

All of our foster dogs are in private foster homes. Once your application has been approved, we will schedule a meet and greet for you to meet the dog of your dreams.

If you leave any information blank, we will be unable to process your application.

The adoption process generally takes between three and six weeks to complete. We are an all-volunteer organization and have to work a very in-depth process. We do this because it is important to us that our Saints find the right homes, and homes find the right Saints. We hope that you understand and are patient with this process.

Your adoption application fee is $25 (application fee will be applied if you are approved). $25 will NOT be returned if your application is not approved, we will consider it a donation to the Colorado Saint Bernard Rescue.

Once approved, the Adoption Fee is $500. Bonded pairs and seniors may have a different adoption fee depending on individual circumstances of the dog(s)
