No Borders Animal Rescue Society (NOBARS) consists of volunteers dedicated to providing rescue to stray, abandoned, abused, or surrendered animals, to prevent cruelty, to re-home and to promote the welfare of animals.

Our mission is to successfully match adoptive homes with adoptive animals.

Our Adoption Process:

As responsible members of NO Borders Animal Rescue Society (NOBARS), it is our goal to successfully adopt our rescued dogs and puppies into forever families. Our responsibility is to ensure that the animal you wish to adopt is well suited for you, your home, and your lifestyle. We always look for the best possible conditions for each animal. Do note that the animals in our care have uncertain and often unknown pasts. We endeavour to do our best at determining age/breed/size; however, we can never be certain.

Adoption fees help NOBARS cover costs for the care and medical attention of your new adoptive animal. All adoption fees are non-refundable.

Step 1:
First, complete our adoption application form, which can be found under the adoption tab. If you have difficulty with the online form, please contact and we will email a copy of the form to you.

Step 2:
Second, an adoption coordinator will review the application and contact the family as quickly as possible to discuss the application and conduct a telephone interview. Note that we do have the right to decline your application for any reason we feel will not match with the needs of our animals.

Step 3:
Third, once your application is approved, we will put the prospective family in touch with the animal's foster family to arrange a meeting.

Step 4:
Fourth, in every case, we will require a home visit. Please be prepared to have a NOBARS volunteer visit your home.

Step 5:
Fifth, after you have met the animal, we will assess the situation; how the dog reacts to you and how you react to the dog. We do encourage that you take a day to think about it. We will discuss the adoption openly and fully with all members of the family. This ensures that the dog matches with your family. We will always adopt to the most suitable family.

Step 6:
Sixth and final, and if all parties are in favour of the adoption, your new family member will be delivered to you.
Please be prepared for your new furry friend by purchasing food, bed, toys, and bowls before he/she comes home.

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.
