Dog adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog and you'll have a friend for life! Contact us, or contact another local humane society, animal shelter or SPCA.
Many times we rescue animals (primarily dogs) that have found themselves unwanted or were having physically abused by human (dog abuse is widespread in this country), stray/live on the street facing very dangerous and difficult life everyday or lost in over-crowded shelters and facing death row.
All animals that come through Ocean Dog Rescue are examined by our veterinarians prior to placing them in temporary foster homes in Taiwan or in Vancouver (only few). Placing our animals in temporary foster care, allows Ocean Dog Rescue time to assess each animal's individuals needs. It also allows the animal time to adapt to his/her new environment and receive any attention he/she requires such as training and socializing. With this, Ocean Dog Rescue is more able to re-home the animal ensuring the best match for both the animal and his/her human companion.
All of our rescued dogs had been altered/spayed, up to date on vaccinations, a micro-chipped, a collar with a rescue ID tag (must on forever) and all the paperwork as well as medical certificate will go with the dog. We always make sure our dogs are health enough and only send dogs that are in very good health condition for long flight.
We look for homes where our dogs will become family members, companions. All prospective adopters must commit to the mental and physical well being of their new family member, by providing food, water, appropriate time, training, shelter, grooming, exercise, veterinary care as needed and of course LOVE.
Ocean Dog Rescue is run 100% by volunteers. We do not have a shelter facility to visit. All our rescues are immediately placed into loving foster homes in Taiwan or Vancouver and cared for in the home until suitable families/companions are found.
Our adoption program also help local dog rescue.
Please DO NOT BUY a dog from a pet store or animal broker as the money you pay SUPPORTS puppy mills. The cute little puppies being sold at pet stores are most likely mill dogs. Don't turn a blind eye while homeless pets die! ADOPT FROM A SHELTER OR RESCUE GROUP near you!
Why should you adopt?
Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog or puppy versus getting dogs for sale or puppies for sale from a dog breeder? When someone is breeding puppies, they are creating new dogs who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog or puppy and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale from a puppy breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog or adopt a puppy at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
