Q: Why do you rescue from abroad?
Animals in other countries (including the US) are treated inhumanely and have no rights. The need is high abroad and i have made it my personal mission to rescue as many animals from these atrocious conditions as i can, by finding them loving, forever homes in our beautiful country - canada. animals abroad are poisoned, shot, acid burned, raped, abused, left to starve, etc. etc. the list goes on. this is why, even though i also do rescue locally, my focus is on those at greatest risk of death.
Q: What's the difference between fostering & foster-to-adopt?
*Fostering is sort of like pet-sitting. We provide supplies & cover necessary vetting of the animals as they are still under our rescue care but you provide a home for them to live in until they are adopted.
*foster-to-adopt is basically adoption but you have a 2 week trial period before fully committing to adoption. This is a great way to ensure you and the animal are a good fit for one another. we do not provide supplies to foster-to-adopt families. There are specific circumstances where we cannot offer the foster-to-adopt option. for instance, if you do not live near our partner vets and/or if we cannot financially afford to bring the animal to canada without the full adoption fee being paid. the adoption fee in those circumstances covers the animal's flight, crate & other fees & therefore is essential to the animal's rescue.
*Note: in both cases, if any vetting is required, we will cover the expenses as long as the animals are seen by our partner vets. we have partner vets in newmarket, mississauga & schomberg.
Q: how does the adoption process work for animals abroad?
We require an adoption application to be filled out, then we carry out a Phone interview + home/yard tour virtually, then a reference check, and finally, a legally-binding contract. we do not take rehoming an animal lightly and thus, must ensure they are not going to be rehomed again or experience any further trauma.
Q: how much does it cost to adopt?
Please see our "Adoption Fees" page
Please Note: we are a non-profit organization & have many local animals in foster homes & in our care. Our only way of covering their medical care, food, & supplies is through donations & adoption fees.
Q: Do you require the adoption fee prior to adoption?
Please see Our "Adoption Fees" PAge
Q: Does my new fur baby come vaccinated?
Yes, whether locally or abroad, dogs & Puppies are up-to-date on vaccines (rabies & DA2PP); cats & Kittens are up-to-date on vaccines (rabies & FVRCP) - dogs from egypt are always checked for leishmania & have a parasitology test done prior to travelling to canada.
All animals in our rescue are microchipped.
Q: How do I get my new fur baby if they're abroad?
Once adoption is confirmed, your new fur baby is booked on the next flight/transport to the GTA/Airport. Dogs from tennessee and/or texas are driven to canada & arrive in streetsville, mississauga, where you will meet to pick him/her up on arrival.
Q: Are you a charity or a non-profit organization?
We are a federally (Canadian) incorporated not-for-profit organization and can be searched in the canadian database of corporations.
