If you are interested in adopting one of our rescues, you must fill out the Adoption Application which is on our website, www.k9countrylodge.ca. Bring the application with you to our facility or send via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. We ask that you call ahead and arrange a time to come out to our facility and meet our rescues. We are very busy caring for all of the dogs and it helps when we know when to expect you. We also ask that you have an idea of which rescues you would like to meet as we do not allow people to walk around our facility to look at the dogs. This upsets the dogs and we do our best to keep a calm, comfortable environment for our rescues. Many of our rescues have come from bad situations and do not trust humans and we do not want to scare them or upset them by allowing strangers to wander our facility. We are also a boarding facility and have customer dogs on the property and we do not want to get all of their dogs excited or stressed. If you do not follow these rules, you will be asked to leave the property. The dogs in our care are our #1 priority.
At our facility, there is a large fenced in park where you can meet the dog(s) you are interested in, or we can bring them into our office if the weather conditions aren't good. Using the information you provided on the application and through conversations, we will help match you with the dog we feel is best suited to your family and lifestyle. If you are interested in adopting an adult dog, we allow a one week trial period for you to get to know him/her and decide if you’d like to make them a permanent member of your family. During the one week trial period we provide food, collar and leash. There is an On-Trial Agreement to fill out and a $100.00 deposit is required. **The On-Trial period is for adult dogs only**
If you decide that the dog is not the right fit for your family, you may bring him/her back to our facility and we will refund half of your deposit ($50). The other half ($50) will go towards the rescues. The dog MUST be returned within the one week trial period or exactly one week from the date which you signed the On Trial Agreement. If you do not bring him/her back within the required time period, you will not receive any of your deposit and the $100 will be donated to the rescues.
If you wish to adopt, you must fill out an Adoption Agreement and pay the adoption fee of $250. The $100 “On-Trial” deposit goes towards the adoption fee. We also ask that you bring back the collar and leash that were provided during the trial period. We like to keep these items for other rescues to use. Once you have filled out the Adoption Agreement and paid the adoption fee, we will provide you with your new family member’s health record, vet booklet and microchip info.
The adoption fee for all of our rescues is $250.00 which includes full set of vaccinations (DAPP & Rabies), microchip and spay/neuter. All adults and puppies over the age of 6 months will already be fully vaccinated, microchipped and spayed/neutered. If you adopt a puppy that is not yet spayed/neutered, we will arrange a date with you to have them spayed/neutered. We have certain days booked every month at our vet clinic for our rescues to be spayed/neutered. We will contact you with these dates once your puppy is between 5-6months old and we will get him/her booked in. Getting your puppy spayed/neutered is part of the Adoption Agreement and if you do not wish to have this done, you cannot adopt one of our rescues.
We All Need a Rescue K9 Rescue is an organization dedicated to saving lives. Whether it is physical or emotional damage these dogs may have, we plan to do everything we can to give them a second chance at life.
Our mission is to rescue, rehabilitate and rehome abused, abandoned and neglected dogs – unwanted dogs. We believe that with time we can sooth away the memories of their old life and be the bridge between what was and what can be. The rescue’s in our care today and the ones who come after are the reason we do what we do. No dog deserves to go through life without being loved and without a home. Dogs deserve love just because they exist and they give us a reason to open our hearts.
We aim to be the pathway to a new life for all the dogs we rescue and teach them what it means to be loved and that humans do care. Their lives will not be wasted and no matter how young or how old or whether they have 4 legs or 3, there is the perfect home for every rescue and there is the perfect rescue for every home.
We are located 18 kms west of Saskatoon at a boarding facility. Head out on Highway 14 West and drive 13 kms until you get to Cameron Hill Road. The sign points left, but turn RIGHT. We are located 5.5kms down the gravel road, on the left. You will see our sign "Ta Ta Fur Now K9 Country Lodge, also home of We All Need A Rescue".
