If you have read through our adoption process and FAQs and still have a question, please direct it to adopt@dogswithoutborders.orgplease DO NOT email asking if a dog is still available. When dogs are adopted they are removed from our site and Petfinder!

If you think you might like to adopt or foster a dog but have some questions about their temperament, behaviour, needs (etc) please fill out an application FIRST. These applications are not binding contracts and in no way obligate you to foster nor adopt any dog. Our office manager is extremely busy and can more adequately answer your questions if she has all your information first.

Need to surrender your dog?

We can sometimes take dogs from the general public into our rescue but you should first exhaust ALL OTHER OPTIONS including your friends, family, and colleagues. You should also expect to wait several days before hearing back from us if you choose to submit your dog for consideration. If you need to re-home your dog immediately take it to your local shelter.

Please note we are a small dog rescue and cannot take Pitbulls, German Shepherds, Huskies or other large, high energy breeds. If your dogs is overly aggressive or has a bite history we cannot take your dog.
