Frequently Asked Questions


Is there an adoption fee?

Yes, the adoption fee is $475. There is also deposit of $100 that will be returned to you once you have spayed or neutered your new furry friend.

Is the adoption fee negotiable?

Absolutely not!  The adoption donations are desperately needed for the rescue to pay for transport of the dogs into Southern Ontario, vet fees and many other costs associated with rescuing the dogs.

I am outside of Southern Ontario, can I still adopt one of your dogs?

If we are able to find a volunteer who can conduct a home visit in your area and you are able to travel to Southern Ontario where the dog is fostered you may be considered as an applicant.  We do not adopt outside of Ontario

I submitted an application - what happens next?

Once you submit your application the application will be reviewed.  If your application is accepted we will call on your vet reference followed by a phone screen with the adopter.  Once this has passed we schedule a home visit followed by calling your references.
