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.

Please take note of the following important information prior to submitting your application. If you do not meet/ agree with the below information, please reconsider submitting an adoption application. 

  • All adoptions include a ‘meet and greet’ between the applicant and foster dog as part of the approval process. You are responsible for all costs and logistics associated with getting to that meeting (i.e., gas, flights, hotels, meals, etc.) in the city where the foster dog is being cared for. If your application is approved and the dog must be transported to your home, you are fully responsible for all costs and logistics associated with that transport. If the transport involves flying the dog, the dog must fly in cabin (no cargo) in an airline approved soft sided carrier accompanied by the adopter. If you are not prepared to travel to meet your future family member, please do not submit an adoption application.
  • The CCRT mandates that all pets currently in an applicant’s home be spayed or neutered (unless as per the advice of your veterinarian) before CCRT will consider placing a rescue dog with you. We believe very strongly in the importance of spaying/neutering for many reasons, including the improved health of the pet as well as helping to curb the high incidence of unnecessary/accidental breeding. Just like humans, our pets need annual wellness checks as well and your pets should be seen at least once a year for a check-up. CCRT also mandates all pets need to be appropriately vaccinated/titred as per vaccination protocol (unless as per the advice of your veterinarian).
