Our Adoption Policy

We must receive a fully completed adoption application. Our applications are reviewed in the order that they are received and our dogs are matched to the most suitable applicant.

PLEASE NOTE WE DO NOT ADOPT TO ANYONE RESIDING OUTSIDE OF THE PROVINCE OF ONTARIO.

If you do not meet the criteria for a particular dog or if we have received someone else’s application prior to yours, you will be notified as soon as possible. If you wish to remain on our waiting list for another dog in the future, you may advise us. Please be patient with us. We receive many adoption applications which are reviewed by volunteers who work full time. We will endeavour to provide a reply within 7-14 days of receipt of your application. 

We will not proceed with applicants in the following scenarios:

  • homes with children who do not understand and display respect and boundaries with animals and people
  • homes with unstable animals (food/toy/space guarding, human or animal aggression,etc.)
  • animals for gifts or surprises· dogs are planned to be used for the purpose of personal or property protection
  • plans for aesthetic surgery, i.e. tail docking, ear cropping, etc.
  • homes with intact animals  male or female.  

We do not adopt out into homes that have intact dogs, unless the dog is intact for medical reasons and proof can be obtained from the veterinarian.
