Barks and Meows Rescue
Our Featured Pet...
Who We Are
Barks and Meows Rescue is a non-profit rescue group. All of our rescues are rescued from situations whereby they no longer would have had a chance to survive. Our goal is to find wonderful "loving companion homes" for those adoring canines and felines who deserve as second chance in life. We are committed to adopting these companions out to homes where they are indoors, treated as family members and are continued to be well socialized and provided with both premium nutrition and health care.
Adopting a friend
Along with having fosters that have had the best nutrition while in our care, we promise to socialize our animals as much as possible. We will have them interacting with all members of the home including cats, dogs, children and both males and females. If we do not have all these factors in our home we will take them to places where they can interact so that we may advise the adopters honestly how truly social they are.
Our fosters will come from many sources, they may be surrenders, they may be from local shelters, they may be from rescues that require our assistance. It matters not to us as to the source, just that the animals we take in our kind and wanting only another chance to show how truly loving they really are!
Finally our committment to our new adopters will be full disclosure of how they came to be in our home, our experience with them during foster care and documentation from our Veterinarians on the status of their health. We hope that you will be pleased with our dedication to having well rounded fosters in our system. The team of foster homes are key to making this happen, and we couldn't do it with out them. If wish to apply to become a foster parent for Barks and Meows, please e-mail us for an application and we shall be very happy to send one onto you.
All of our animals are adopted out to Ontario, Canada resdients only. Foster Families will reside within Southwest Middlesex and Chatham Kent. All felines are FIV tested and all canines are tested for Heartworm if they are deemed old enough to have contracted it. Our fosters are all spayed or neutered if over the age of 6 months. They are all on heartworm prevention and or Revolution to ensure fleas or ear mites do not exist. Each "adoptee" is up-to-date with vaccines and vaccination certificates and health records will be given to the "adopters".
Our Adoption Process:
1) Please review the various fosters on our "Available for Adoption" page. Read the bio's carefully. Look for a foster that matches the dynamics of your current home. Each foster has different temperaments, and characteristics, so know what you want to have in a companion. If you don't see a possible match, then please continue your search for a rescued canine elsewhere as they are hundreds of groups with thousands of animals looking for their ideal "forever home".
2) If you find what you believe may be a match for your family, please complete the adoption application by clicking on the "Application for Adoption" page then, clicking on the link found on the page.
3) Your application will be reviewed within 48 hours and you will be responded to by e-mail advising you or whether or not we feel you are a potential match.
4) If you are considered a potential match, will will make arrangements via e-mail to setup a telephone interview with both spouses in the home. If we mutually agree, after the interview, that it the may very well be a match, the foster home will setup an interview with you either at your home or at the foster home. All family members who reside in the home as well as as any resident canines that live with you must be present for the home interview. If you live locally, there will be a 24 hour waiting period in order for both parties to think about the foster you have just met. If you live more than 1 hour away from the foster home then the foster home will have the choice of making a decision while you are there or advising that they wish to think about it over a 24 hour period. The foster home will have final say on whether or not it is deemed to be good choice and will advise the applicant of their decision. All decisions are final so we please ask that you respect the knowledge of the foster home as they really do know the animal they are caring for best.
5) If your family are chosen as a "forever home" for our foster, then you will need to complete and sign an adoption contract outlining our policies and procedures.
