Homes for Paws Dog Rescue

Adoption Process

Looking for your new best friend? Homes for Paws is an all breed dog rescue dedicated to saving dogs on death row. When you adopt a dog you’re not only saving one life but two! The dog you’re adopting and the dog that will be rescued in its place in the shelter. The dogs have also been in a home environment while in our care so we know their personalities and needs quite well!

Steps in the Adoption Process

  • Fill out an adoption application. Please answer as truthfully and thoroughly as possible. 
  • The application is screened by the Homes For Paws team and then passed on to the foster home.
  • If the foster home believes you to be a good fit they will contact you to set up a meet and greet with all members of the household (including pets!).
  • You can get to know the dog and ask any questions you may have. The foster home has spent the most time with the dog so they will know best! 
  • Take some time after the visit to think and discuss with all members of the household. If you decided to proceed with adoption please contact the Homes For Paws team and we will move forward with your application. 
  • Vet and personal references are contacted and a homecheck will be completed by one of our volunteers. 
  • If all goes well the last step is to complete the adoption! An adoption contract will be signed, all medical records will be provided and the applicable adoption fee will be collected via cash, cheque or etransfer.
