Rat Terrier Rescue Canada Adoption Application
All applications, references, home checks etc. are done by dedicated volunteers in their limited spare time. We endeavor to respond to all requests within 3 days*, either our application manager or the foster parent of your selected dog will try to contact you within that time frame.
Our adoption application is very comprehensive for 2 reasons: first because we have invested a lot of time, energy and resources into bringing this dog into our care and we want to ensure the best match for both the dog and the adopter, and second, by answering all the questions, the adopters may better anticipate the commitment they are undertaking.
