My story

Walter is a very sweet little gent who came from Orange County Shelter in CA.

Little Walter was confiscated from his home in CA, so cannot imagine what the little guy has gone through. 

Walter has been recuperating at the Rescue Ranch for over a month.  He has gained a lot of weight, is much healthier, and has calmed down and 

loves being a loved dog. 

He is very affectionate once he trusts you.   He has some reactions to getting a leash on.  We are not sure if this is some form of abuse from his past.  If a person he trusts is patient and sits down, cuddles and talks to him, he will allow harness etc to be put on. 

In no way can Walter be adopted to a home with children or other pets.  He needs one on one time and go to training to be properly socialized.

Walter really wants love and now really tries hard to get your attention to get it.

Their adoption process

Additional adoption info

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.

More about this rescue

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
