How To Adopt A Pet
Non-violence leads to the highest ethics, which is the goal of all evolution. Until we stop harming all other living beings, we are still savages. ~ Thomas A. Edison
THREE EASY STEPS TO ADOPTING A PET
- Please email to find out pet's adoption status and place pet's name in Subject line
- Fill out Adoption Application
- Via email we can determine if the pet is potentially a good match for you, and if so, an appointment is scheduled and directions forwarded for you to meet the pet. (All pet's are in foster care - some at R-mar's headquarters near Canmore, others in Calgary or surrounding area. We are also expanding to Vancouver. Pet's can also be transported to adopter's city without prior meeting)
- Read, print and bring the Adoption Agreement with you when meeting the pet if an adoption is likely that day.
Adopters Wanting to Adopt Prior to Transport
For potential adopters who want to adopt prior to meeting the pet in person prior to transport from Mexico/California, there are two options:
- You are welcome to submit the adoption agreement and pay in full prior to picking up the dog.
- A deposit for half of the total adoption fee is given to R-mar, with the remaining balance and adoption agreement submitted at time of pick-up.
If for any reasons the adopter decides upon arrival of the pet they don't want to keep the pet, the dog can come back to R-mar minus $150 for the amount of time to coordinate the adoption, pulling the dog from availability, reposting the dog on our website, and contacting other potential adopters who may have been on our waiting list. R-mar is a registered non-profit rescue organization with Canada Revenue, and a donation receipt for tax purposes is provided if interested.
Adopters Who Don't Live Near Calgary or Vancouver
Adopters who don't live near the Calgary or Vancouver area can have a dog they want to adopt transported to their nearest airport. These are special cases and take more time to coordinate but are well worth the effort. Adopters must put down the full amount of adoption costs. If for any reason they decide they do not want to keep the pet, it can be flown back to R-mar's facility at owner's expense, or R-mar will post the pet for adoption in the adopter's home town. The adoption cost is refunded minus $150.
Adoption Costs for Rescued Pets
Rocky Mountain Animal Rescue physically rescues dogs and cats abandoned or born homeless on Albertan First Nations reservations. Most these dogs and puppies have been freezing and starving for months on end, if not their entire lives, yet are otherwise healthy and quickly adjust to their new surroundings at the sanctuary where they are fed twice a day, given fluffy blankets and warm surrounding, toys and chew items, crate trained, housebroken, bathed and groomed, and learn rules and boundaries. This in turn makes them all feel safe, secure, grateful and happy.
We also help animals in distress in Mexico working closely with Canadian's and American's now living in Mexico and got together to start up rescue organizations and spay and neuter clinics to do something about the extremely high overpopulation problem of starving street dogs. If not saved, the helpless cats and dogs all face extremely inhumane electrocution by heartless human beings. Until R-mar has regular and enough funding, the cost to save a pet often varies. Please email R-mar for the cost of the pet(s) you are interested in.
