About Embrace a Discarded Animal Society
About Our Shelter...
Embrace a Discarded Animal Society received its charitable status in 2012.
We have passionate volunteers and directors and a president, who are dedicated to the society. We all work very hard to achieve the following goals:
Our intent is to not put a value on our dogs (age, health, etc) but rather to charge a base adoption fee so we are able to take the dogs who need a surgery, training, or may need to stay at our Rescue Ranch for long periods of time due to abuse and fear. Once we feel the dogs are ready for adoption, we will introduce these dogs to potential adopters.
Hundreds of adopters have really appreciated our process and stay connected with us and give us updates on how the dogs are doing once adopted.
One of the reasons our Rescue is a little different is, the people directly working and living with the dogs are the ones making decisions on where our dogs are placed. We do not use foster parents. This allows us to coach potential adopters to adopt the right dog for their family. Once approved, you may visit our Rescue Ranch where we have play areas and trails to walk

Come Meet Our Pets...
Thank you so much for your kind interest.
Feel free to contact us at your convenience so we can answer any of your questions or send you an adoption application.
Our Adoption Process...
Before the meet and greet we will ask you to fill out a thorough adoption application. After reviewing and approving the application, we will ask to meet you and your family in your home.
If we establish suitability (that means that we feel that your home will be wonderful for the dog and that the dog will be a cherished family member), You can then meet the dog at the Rescue Ranch in Blaine, WA or if you have already met the dog at one of the Petsmart events in the Vancouver/Lower Mainland area, you will be free to come and pick up the dog and take it home.
Prior to the dog being transferred to you, a legal adoption contract will be signed (must be 25 years or older).
The adoption fee. For our adult dogs is $450.00 and 650.00 for puppies (with full vetting) adopters will be responsible for the full payment. For our adult cats its 149.00 and kittens are 199.00
All of our dogs must be indoor animals, to be cherished and loved pets only.
WE WILL NOT ALLOW OUR PETS TO BE CHAINED OR LEFT OUTSIDE ALONE AND UNATTENDED.
