Adoption policy.

  • Geographical Limitations: We primarily serve the Toronto/GTA area, extending as far east as Kingston, north to Collingwood, west and south to London, and south to Hamilton. This ensures that we can provide assistance if needed throughout the dog's life. If you reside outside of Ontario, you must agree to deliver and return the dog to us if the adoption is cancelled.

  • Age Restrictions: We do not adopt our dogs to homes with children under 9 years old. Given that many of our dogs come to us with unknown histories, we prioritize safety by avoiding potential risks associated with younger children. However, sometimes we have dogs who feels more comfortable with kids than adults and were living with kids before. In this case, we will consider all aspects depending on dog's and kid's temperament and behaviours.

  • Limit on Number of Dogs: We do not adopt out to homes with 3 or more dogs. Our aim is to ensure that each dog receives the love and attention they deserve. Additionally, many cities in Ontario have by-laws limiting dog ownership to three dogs. New dogs require significant attention, especially in the initial stages of adjustment.

  • Age Requirement: Potential adopters must be at least 21 years old to be considered for adoption.

  • Adoption Fees: Please note that adoption fees are not eligible for tax-deductible receipts, as they are considered an exchange of goods by the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA).

  • Where are dogs located currently?
    Dogs are currently located in foster homes in Korea, awaiting flight volunteers and availability for transport to Canada.
  • Can we meet the dog before we apply?
    Unfortunately, we do not offer meet and greets before the interview process. We understand the desire to meet the dog beforehand, but scheduling multiple meetings with potential families can be disruptive to our foster homes' daily lives.
  • Do you arrange public adoption events?
    We do not organize public adoption events. Our dogs are often timid and uncomfortable around strangers, especially in crowded environments. We prioritize their comfort and well-being during the adoption process.
  • What are the benefits of picking up the dog from the airport?
    Picking up your new companion from the airport can help establish a strong bond early on. After a potentially stressful journey, dogs often form a connection with the person who provided care and safety during their arrival.
  • Why is there a virtual meet and greet?
    Many rescue dogs are still learning to trust humans and may be apprehensive around strangers. A virtual meet and greet allows both the adopter and the dog to become familiar with each other in a low-pressure environment, helping to ease the transition into their new home.
  • What vetting is included with the adoption fee?
    The adoption fee covers essential veterinary care, including a physical exam, 4DX testing for heartworm and tick-borne diseases, deworming, flea/tick preventatives, and spaying/neutering. In some cases, additional medical procedures may be necessary, which we rely on adoption fees, donations, and sponsorships to cover.
  • I live in a small home/condo/apartment, can I still adopt?
    Yes! As long as you can provide the necessary care, attention, and exercise for your dog, the size of your living space is not a determining factor in the adoption process.
  • Do I need a backyard to adopt a dog?
    A backyard is not mandatory, but it may be considered depending on the individual dog's needs. For instance, if a dog has extreme fear outdoors or requires a secure space, a fenced yard could be beneficial.
  • What is the average time to adopt a dog?
    We aim to review applications within two weeks of receipt and begin the interview process promptly. In some cases, you may welcome your new family member in as little as two weeks. However, adoption timelines can vary depending on various factors such as vetting results and behavioral adjustments.
