How does RainCoast Dog Rescue Society rescue their dogs?

RainCoast rescues all their dogs with the utmost love and care for the dogs well-being and rehabilitation, depending on the severity of the case some dogs can take months to rehabilitate, and some dogs are ready in a short time for a loving forever home. All of our dogs are personally temperament tested, assessed, worked with by us hands on, given different levels of training started depending on the dog, fully vaccinated, heart worm test and fungal test if rescued out of BC, spayed or neutered, de wormed and given a flea and tick treatment. All the dogs RainCoast Dog Rescue rescues are either personally fostered by us on the RainCoast farm or placed into professional foster homes before being placed up for adoption, which is usually two to three weeks. This to see if any unforeseen medical or temperament issues come out prior to being placed up for adoption, as we take great pride in the safety and care of all our dogs when rescue, rehabilitate and place our amazing rescue dogs into loving forever homes. We dedicate our lives to rescuing and rehabilitating these beautiful animals.

RainCoast Dog Rescue has a great “Foster To Adopt” program which makes things really comfortable and professional for potential adopters. This means we start off by asking you to apply online on this website, click “adopt now” and fill out the application to the best of your ability. Once we receive your application we will contact you usually within 48 hours or less to discuss your application and answer any questions or concerns you may have, as well as discuss the adoptable dogs you may be interested in. Once we agree on some dogs or a dog being a possible good fit for you, we will then plan a home check of your home, and then the meeting of the dogs or dog you were interested and approved for. When you come to meet the dog or dogs you were interested in we will go for a on-leash walk with the dog, we will see how the dog does in a safe and enclosed off-leash environment by themselves and then with other dogs to see their socialization skills and playful manner. If all goes well and you decide you would like to take the dog home to start the official “Foster To Adopt”, you then will place the adoption deposit down, this is simply to show you are taking the possible adoption seriously and you are financially capable to adopt a dog. The deposit is 100% refundable at any point you ask for it back during the “Foster To Adopt” process if you choose not to adopt the dog. When you start the “foster to adopt” we provide you with the food, treats, toys, bed, bowls, dog waste bags, leash, collar and kennel/crate for the next 7-14 days while you decide whether or not you will adopt that dog, staying in touch with us daily for an update and to ask us any questions you may have, as we are always here to help. Education is key. If you choose to adopt the dog we kindly ask for the crate/kennel, bowls, leash and collar back so you can get your own nice new stuff for your new beautiful rescue dog, and so we can use the items again for the next rescue dog in need. This is also nice because you do not have to go out and spend up to 400$ – 500$ for these items and possibly not end up adopting a dog, leaving you with 400-500$ worth of dog stuff you may not be using if you don’t decide to get a dog. RainCoast Dog Rescue does all they can to make your adoption process as comfortable, safe, professional and smooth as possible. We will always be there for any tips or advice for you and your RainCoast adopted dog for your dogs whole life. RainCoast also takes back any of their dogs no matter what during the life of the dog, the dog is NOT allowed to be given away, sold or surrendered to anyone, shelter or pound. RainCoast never wants their dogs to go back into the system to which they came from. We love all our dogs we rescue and feel once we rescue them we have given them our word to always be there for them for their entire life. A home check is mandatory either before or after meeting the dog, or before any adoption is finalized.
