Our Mission

Sea Paws Rescue (SPR) is a small passionate team of animal lovers dedicated to saving the lives of abandoned and neglected animals all over the globe. Our goal is to give every animal the medical care, shelter, and love and care they need to ensure their successful integration from our foster homes into our #SPRfurever homes.

We partner with shelters locally in Canada as well as in the Caribbean and the Middle East, for whom we directly assist in facilitating adoptions. We strive to protect these innocent lives from abuse and neglect by educating the community on proper animal care and shedding light on our current issue of extreme animal overpopulation to ultimately reduce pet homelessness.

Adoption Policy

Applicants must be at least 21 years of age.
All adult members of the household must attend the adoption interview.
We prefer that applicants have lived at their current address for at least three months. This is to make sure that owners have had time to settle into their new surroundings, and provides stability for the new pup who themselves have already undergone multiple changes in a short time.
Because young puppies require intensive training and care, we do not place puppies younger than 8 weeks of age in a home.
Because of potential behavior/training concerns, we are very cautious when placing young pets in homes with children under the age of five.
If applicants have another animal at home, they must introduce the animals properly. We want to make sure that their animal is happy with their selection and that the transition for both animals' will be relatively smooth.
All adopters must take the animal to a veterinarian within one week of adoption as Sea Paws Rescue (SPR) does not screen for all diseases including, but not limited to, tick fever and heartworm. All further examinations and immunizations from the date of the adoption are at the adopter’s own expense. SPR makes no health guarantees or warranties.
All adopters must understand that there will be an adjustment period and their pet may experience behavioural and/or health issues related to the change in environment. Adopters must seek professional assistance from a trainer and/or licensed veterinarian if they have concerns about issues related to the adjustment period.

If at any time, for any reason, a SPR adopter decides not to keep their animal, they agree to return the animal back to a Sea Paws Rescue representative. Under no circumstance will the adopter surrender a SPR animal to a local shelter. In the event of a rehoming, no part of the adoption fee will be reimbursed.
