HOW TO ADOPT 

We are always happy to learn of a potential forever home for one of our rescued companion animals. Our volunteer Adoption Team works very hard to match each of our rescued pets with the most appropriate family in the hopes that each new home will be a happy and permanent one.

If you are interested in adopting a pet from ANBAR please contact us for a copy of our Pre-Adoption Questionnaire. Please include a telephone number where you may be reached. Please email us at adoptions@anbrescue.org.

The following is a summary of our guidelines. You must:

  • Be 18 years of age or older to adopt;
  • Complete a Pre-Adoption Questionnaire;
  • Complete an Adoption Agreement. Keep in mind that completing an Adoption Agreement means you understand that all adoption fees are non-refundable;
  • Be able and willing to spend the time and money necessary to provide training, medical treatment, and proper care for a pet;
  • Meet with ANBAR's Executive Director or Adoptions Coordinator prior to adoption.
  • A government issued photo ID (driver's license, state identification card, military ID, etc.) is required.
  • Renters must provide their landlord’s name and phone number, or a copy of the lease. If you are a Renter, be sure to check your rental policy relevant to pet ownership to avoid any landlord concerns.
  • All adult members of the household should be present or in agreement with the selection.
  • All adopters understand our unaltered puppies and kittens are adopted out with the provision that ownership of the puppy or kitten does not transfer from ANBAR to the adopter until after the kitten or puppy has been sterilized.  
  • All adopters agree that the Adopted Animal will not be subjected to any cosmetic surgery, including, but not limited to, ear cropping and tail docking; will not be subjected to declawing or devocalization.
  • All adopters agree that the Adopted Animal will be treated humanely; will not be used for any inhumane purpose; will not be used for any experimental purpose; food; and will not be sold.
  • All adopters agree that the Adopted Animal ill not be used for any illegal purpose, including, but not limited to, dog fighting.
  • All adopters will accept and consider the pet as a household indoor companion, not as an outside pet.
  • ANBAR strongly encourages continued socialization and formal obedience training for all dogs under the age of eight.
  • Adopters agree that ANBAR will always be listed as the primary contact on the registration of the microchip and that adopter can be added as an alternative upon request.
  • For the safety of the pet, all adopters agree to take him/her home with a leash and collar (dogs and puppies) or in a carrier (cats, kittens, and rabbits). These items may be purchased in advance or at the time of adoption at Petco. Temporary cardboard carriers (one animal per carrier) are available for purchase from ANBAR, $5.
  • Adopters understand that ANBAR will disclose any known medical or behaviour issues with an animal but cannot guarantee the health of any animal beyond that.

  

We strongly encourage continued socialization and formal obedience training for all dogs under the age of eight.
If you have children younger than 5 years, and do not already have a canine in your home, understand that adding a dog or cat will be like adding a permanent 2 year old to your responsibilities. For this reason, we will only place our pets in homes with children younger than 5 on a case-by-case basis. Keep in mind that completing an adoption contract means you understand that all adoption fees are non-refundable.
