Rescued Dog: Maddie
Parents: Tim

Adopted!! Yaaaay Maddy!

Happy Tail –

Madeline is the reason you adopt a rescue dog. A dog this sweet and loving deserves a home and I am so thankful it is with my family. She has fit in so perfectly with our family that even our cat puts up with her. It took us along time to find the perfect dog. But thanks to Jesse at RainCoast Dog Rescue we have her. He matched us up perfectly. Jesse takes a personal approach to adoption. You never feel like you are just another application laying in a pile of paperwork. My family thanks him everyday for finding us our new family member.

Rescued Dog: Frodo
Parents: Sue

Adopted!!! Yaaaay Frodo!

Happy Tail –

Well what can I say about the lovely Frodo my fur son, he is just the best. We have come along way in the last 6 months from him being an untrained BC puppy mill stud, rescued by the fantastic RainCoast Dog Rescue. To the well trained and well behaved, sucky boy goofball he is today. I am so in love with my little fur son Frodo and could not picture my life without him. Losing my husband so quickly was so difficult for me, leaving me so lonely and desperate for affection. I felt so empty and lost. Thanks to Jesse from RainCoast Dog Rescue my life feels whole again with love, affection and laughter. I know my dear late husband would have been so in love with Frodo and is happy to look down on me, and see how happy I am today. You truly brought back my life to me with Frodo. Words cannot express how grateful I am. Thank you.

Sue and Frodo. ❤️

Rescued Dog: Katie

Adopted!! Yaaaay Katie!
(Formerly Eden)

Happy Tail –

We are enjoying life with Katie, who has quickly become an important member of our family. She adores our first grandchild, who arrived a couple of weeks before she did, and people in general. She is now registered at the middle earth canine academy nearby for basic obedience classes, which we are hoping will ensure we’re all “on the same page” moving forward. Katie is excited to meet and play with other dogs, but until we have a solid recall from her, we are hesitant to let her off the leash, except at home. We are hoping that by the end of summer, we’ll have crossed that important reliability threshold and will be confident in her understanding of English commands, etc. LOL! We have also discovered she is not a fan of Peacocks, haha.

Thank you for all the wonderful work that you do. Se are overjoyed to have found katie through RainCoast Dog Rescue and the amazing Acopio Shelter Team in Mexico!!!

Rescued Dog: Koda

Adopted! Yaaaay Koda Bear!!

Happy Tail –

We are overjoyed to have gained a family member. Kodabear is the sweetest, silliest, most gentle dog I have met and I couldn’t have dreamed up a better fit for us. He loves to play and go on big adventures but is also just a big cuddle bug who loves kisses. We want to thank Raincoast Dog Rescue for bringing us all together and helping us give Koda the life he deserves.

Rescued Dog: Blue
Parents: Roxburgh Family

Adopted! Yaay Blue!

Happy Tail –

Our family had been looking for a dog to join our family. We believe in rescuing dogs rather than adopting a puppy, and spent a couple months looking for a dog to rescue. We have a small child, so finding the right dog was very important to us. We saw Blue online we were immediately in love with him. As soon as possible we went to see him. He was perfect. We met Blue at a Raincoast rescue adoption event in Victoria and brought him home to Cumberland as a foster to adopt family. Blue is an ambassador for the breed, he is calm loving and wants to please. He is good with our cat and the other dogs he has met. He loves children and adults alike. He has kisses for everybody. He loves to run with the mountin bike on trails, fetch and chew his toys. He came to us house trained, walks perfectly on a leash, fetches and can recall. Wow what a boy. We adore Blue and are so pleased we are his forever home. We already couldn’t imagine life without him. So happy Raincoast rescue is saving dogs like blue, and giving them a second chance. We have a happy tail.

Thanks Raincoast Rescue-you guys rock. The Roxburgh Family

Rescued Dog: Maya

Adopted! Yaaaay Maya!

Happy Tail –

Maya was so timid and shy when we first brought her home with us, but she’s opened up amazingly quickly to show us her adorable, silly self! She comes from Romania, where she went through a very hard life, before coming to Canada . We love her funny sighs and little paw slaps! She is such a sweet girl, winning hearts everywhere we’ve taken her. We feel so lucky to be able to give Maya a loving home after having such a rough start at life. We loved the foster to adopt process to make sure we were the right fit for Maya, thanks so much to Jesse and Raincoast for all the help and support!

Rescued Dog: Jura

Adopted!! Yaaaay Jura!
(Formerly Chance)

Happy Tail-

Yay, happiest of tails!!
Jura, formerly Chance, came into Jesse at Raincoasts’ loving care all the way from the streets of Bucharest, Romania. Being friends of Raincoast, we had been looking at adopting a dog for a while. When we saw Jura’s goofy smile and handsome fluffy coat, it was one spaghetti noodle away from a lady and the tramp love story. We picked Jura up from Raincoast HQ in the depths of Sooke, and headed straight for camping on utopian Galliano island. Day one was hiking the pine bluffs and playing in the sand. From Victoria to Campbell River, we haven’t looked back yet. We love Jura for his goofy bum wag, aversion to car rides and old men, and everything in between. We cannot thank Jesse and Raincoast enough, for all that they do and have done! To all the prospective doggy daddy’s out there, please check out the stunning pups at RainCoast.

Adopt don’t shop!

Rescued Dog: Meira
Parents: Pamela and Kevin

Adopted!! Yaay Meira!

Happy Tail –

Meira (was Beauty) came to live with us 3 weeks ago and has settled right into her new home very well. She is an absolute sweetheart and is so gentle, we couldn’t have asked for a better dog to join our family. She gets along really well with her new big brother Simon and likes to play with him when she’s in the mood. He can be quite pushy when he want to but she holds her own and lets him know when she’s had enough. Meira likes to spend the nice days sitting outside on the deck or the lawn watching the birds on the lake and chasing squirrels out of the yard. She is so laid back and easy going and loves going for walks. Meira’s not used to car travel but does ok on short trips in town to the local parks.
We are very lucky to have met this sweet girl, who travelled all the way from Romania, and are looking forward to giving her the happy life she deserves. Thank you to Jesse and RainCoast Rescue for introducing us to this little princess!

Rescued Dog: Sylvester

Adopted!! Yaaaayyy Sylvester!!

Happy Tail –

We decided to get another furbaby awhile after we had to get our old girl put down. We still had 2 other dogs but there was still an empty spot for us and especially for our 10 month old minpin. We ran into our friends daughter who had just adopted their dog from Raincoast. Although we were thinking of getting another minpin puppy we didn’t think it would hurt to just take a look at the website. The first picture we came across was Sylvester, close to what we were looking for. Well he turned out to be exactly what we were looking for. He is the most sweet loving boy. He adores Millie. They are inseperable. We couldn’t be happier with him. Thank you Jesse for Sylvester and for doing what you do. I would recommend Raincoast rescue to anyone. We are sure glad we didn’t pass up the opportunity.

Rescued Dog: Wilson
Parents: Shane and Sherri

Adopted!! Yaayy local boy Wilson!

Happy Tail –

Happy tails for Wilson !!! Wilson has been with us for a few weeks now and thing could not be going better !!! He has fit right in with our family and his also recently adopted bro. Pepper. Wilson is super smart and eager to please as well as amazingly patient.He has been a huge help in training his furry brother who had a few more issues due to his rough start in life. Pepper is doing great now as well !!!! Thanks again Jesse for doing what you do. We would highly recommend anyone thinking of adopting a rescue to speak with you first, as raincoast is an example of how to do things right.
