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.
Dogs are fostered by volunteers until their forever homes are found. While in foster care the animals receive full vet care in both Canada and Puerto Vallarta, Mexico where the transport originates. All animals adopted out by NOBARS are spayed/neutered, fully vaccinated, and dewormed.
We work with rescue groups in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, as well, we work closely with several local rescue groups in Alberta. We will transport small and larger breed dogs then place the dogs in foster homes until a forever family is found.
Adoption process – An Adoption Application Form must be filled out and a phone interview must be completed. A meet and greet will be set up to so that the potential adoptive family can meet the pet(s) they are interested in. We also complete a home inspection prior to the adoption and we also complete a small education session that covers many areas of being a responsible pet guardian.
We will require proof of home ownership or copy of lease or rental agreement along with landlord permission to have an animal companion. If applicable, copies of the condominium by-laws to assure animals are allowed in the complex.
Applicants will be required to sign our contract agreement.
All animals are spayed or neutered and have all vaccinations.
We will recommend applicants sign up for obedience classes when adopting dogs.
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.
