Please take note of the following important information prior to submitting your application:
Please answer all questions and provide specific details when requested.
CCRT will contact your veterinary clinic (if you currently have pets or have had them in the last 5 years) to confirm you have taken your pet(s) at least one time per year for an annual wellness check and vaccinations/heartworm prevention as applicable.
CCRT abides by local maximum pet ownership by laws and will verify your town/city’s household pet limits. If you have reached or exceed the limit, unfortunately, we cannot process your application.
All potential adoptive homes must complete a ‘meet and greet’ with the foster family and foster dog, in the city where the foster dog is located. If your application is approved, you must also travel back to that city to pick up your new furry family member. Note, the majority of our foster homes are in Ontario and you’ll find the city and province where the foster dog is being kept in their profile.
If you have not taken your pet(s) to the vet at least one time per year for wellness checks and/or you are unable to travel for meet and greets/dog pickup, your adoption application will not be approved and you may wish to reconsider submitting it.
CCRT charges an adoption fee and these fees help to cover the vet expenses incurred by the CCRT. All dogs are spayed/ neutered, microchipped and up to date on vaccinations and heartworm preventative (if applicable) before ownership is transferred to an adoptive home.
Failure to provide a thorough and well completed application prevents us from processing it.
If you understand the above points and are confident you meet all requirements, including the need to travel, please complete the following application:
COVID 19 PRECAUTIONS: All home visits will be conducted with the health and safety of the applicant and our volunteers in mind. CCRT volunteers conducting your home visit will be free of all pandemic related symptoms and will wear a mask for the duration of the visit. Applicants and all household members must also be free of pandemic related symptoms and will be required to wear masks for the duration of the home visit. Physical distancing will be practiced at all times. Upon arrival or at any time during the home visit, if the applicant or CCRT volunteer feels unsafe in anyway, the home visit will be rescheduled.
In many cases, we receive multiple adoption applications for the same foster dog. We do not adopt out our dogs on a ‘first come, first served’ basis. Instead, all applications are reviewed with a goal of finding the most suitable forever home for the dog.
