*** PLEASE READ BEFORE APPLYING ***
US APPLICANTS: On June 10, 2022, the CDC provided revisions to
the US rabies ban. As such, we have begun accepting applications
from US applicants for all dogs posted on our website (unless
specified as Canadian adoption only) The process will be slow as
there are many additional requirements and steps for us to complete
before a dog can be admitted into the US. The ports of entry we will
be able to use will also be limited due to the new entry requirements.
Please keep in mind that these pups will not be arriving in the US
until later this fall as their titer results become available and our
only option for a port of entry will be JFK at this time. This will also be
dependent on availability at the ARK for their health examination and
rabies revaccination along with airline availability. We strongly prefer
and request that all adopters make arrangements in order to be at the
port of entry to pick up their pup. In some cases, we MAY be able to
assist with further domestic transport via Alaska Airlines Cargo.
CANADIAN APPLICANTS: Due to the CFIA’s ban that will be
implemented on September 28, 2022, unfortunately we are no longer
able to accept adoption applications for our pups coming from Turkey.
At this time only our domestic rescues (US shelter dogs) will be
available for Canadian adoption to the Vancouver area ONLY due
to transport limitations.
ALL APPLICANTS: Applicants are contacted once vet and landlord
references have been completed. If submitting an application over the
weekend, you may not hear back from the adoption team until the
next 1-2 business days. Vet references must show complete and
accurate history for the lifetime of your pet and ALL clinics
visited must be listed along with their contact information. If you
are unable to grant us access to your records or are unable to
show a complete history for each pet, we will not be able to
proceed in processing your application.
** In order to avoid delays in processing your application,
please ensure to leave an authorization on file with your
vet/landlord references prior to submitting an application.
