Frequently Asked Questions
How does a potential adopter contact you?
What is the adoption process?
Our adoption process beings with a phone interview during which you are invited to ask any questions you may have about the dog you are considering for adoption. This is followed by an opportunity for you and any members of your family, to meet and interact with the dog being considered. Should the adoption proceed, there is a contract provided.
Following an adoption we provide follow up contact to ensure that the process is going smoothly. As well, we are always happy to answer any questions or provide advice to ensure the transition of adding a new family member is a successful one.
Where do the dogs come from?
The dogs in our rescue come from a variety of situations where they are at risk of or have faced abandonment, neglect or potential euthanasia. Don’t let their past troubles fool you, though. Most of our dogs have thrived when placed in the right homes.
What is included in the adoption fee?
All dogs that come in to our rescue are provided with full vetting, which includes being brought up to date on vaccines, ensuring they are spayed or neutered, and any other vetting to bring them to their optimal health.
What happens if the dog isn’t a good fit?
A trial period is an important part of our adoption protocol. It is our goal to ensure the best possible fit between dog and family, and we will do our best to assist with questions, concerns or advice on how to try to achieve the best possible outcome. However, unfortunately, on occasion, it turns out that a specific dog is not the correct fit for a family, for any of a number of reasons. When this is the case, the dog can be returned to our rescue.
Do you accept donated items?
We are always happy to have gently used items, food, or other appropriate canine supplies, donated to our rescue. If we find ourselves unable to use a donated item we will find someone else who is in need and pass it along.
Is it possible to adopt a dog which is not spayed/neutered?
We ensure that all animals we seek to help are spayed or neutered. Rescues such as our exist, in large part, due to backyard breeding and unwanted pregnancies. We do not adopt dogs for the purposes of breeding.
