WHAT WE DO

CARE PRIOR TO ADOPTION

We provide all our dogs with vet checkups and ensure they are spayed or neutered and vaccinated as required.

ADOPTION

We believe every dog deserves to be treated as a cherished member of the family.

 

Our adopters must meet our very high standards of compassion and commitment to their new family member.

If you are interested in adopting one of our dogs, you must complete an application form. If we think you are a suitable match for the dog you have chosen, we will contact you to arrange for you to meet our dog. If there is a good match, we will come to your home to do a home visit to ensure it is a safe place. If, after meeting the dog, all is satisfactory, you will sign an adoption agreement and take your new family member home.

All of our dogs are either with their current owners or in temporary foster homes where they are loved and well cared for.

Adoption fees vary.

REHOME & RESCUE

We understand that there are times when finding a new home for your canine family member is in the best interests of the dog. Dog owners who want to ensure their dog gets a loving and responsible home come to us for help, as we are very diligent about the quality of the homes into which we place our dogs. Because of our thorough vetting process, we cannot guarantee a quick placement. How quickly a new home can be found depends on the age, size, health, temperament and behaviour of the dog. We carefully assess the needs of each dog and match the dog with the most suitable applicant.

Dogs may remain in their home until a new home is found or we may be able to provide an appropriate temporary foster home depending on availability.

There is no cost to the surrendering family, but donations are always welcome.

Stray, abandoned dogs and those rescued from an abusive situation are placed in foster care.

We do not adopt dogs on a first-come-first-served basis; we carefully assess the needs of the dogs and match with the most appropriate applicants.

VOLUNTEER

We are always in need of more dedicated volunteers. If you love dogs we could really use your help.

Volunteers willing to provide foster homes for our dogs while they wait for their forever homes are greatly needed.

Foster families must be willing to take a dog into their homes and provide daily care.  Daily needs include nurturing, feeding, training and exercising. Don't worry, we cover the costs.

If you can't foster, perhaps there is another way you could participate.  Please contact us!
