There are many varieties of Griffon dog breeds. The most common are the Wirehaired Pointing Griffon and the Brussels Griffon. The American Brussels Griffon Rescue Alliance, the National Brussels Griffon Rescue and the Wirehaired Pointing Griffon Rescue each have a database of adoptable Griffon rescue dogs. Additionally, Petfinder.com and AdoptaPet.com have search filters which allow a user to enter the Griffon breed and a zip code to find a Griffon rescue dog within a certain distance of the given location.

In order to adopt a rescue dog, all rescue organizations require an application and approval. Most of the time, a trained adoption counselor guides the adopter through the adoption process. This is to make sure the adopter understands the needs of the particular dog that's being adopted. Usually, there is an adoption fee when taking home a rescue dog. Puppies and young dogs tend to have higher adoption fees, while older dogs tend to have lower adoption fees and are sometimes free. This fee helps to cover the cost of feeding and caring for the animals that remain in the shelter.
