Local and International Rescue Programs

Journey Middle School : PET Project

In early 2018 we were invited to Journey Middle School in Sooke, B.C. where we got to discuss with the students all about dog education and our passion for rescuing. This was and honour and something we love to do very much here at RainCoast Dog Rescue Society. We love to talk to the future generations about how to properly treat and take care of their animals. By reaching out and educating the youth, only then will we change the future for the better educated and humane treatment of animals. Thank you to the teachers and students at Journey Middle School we had the pleasure of meeting and talking to that day.


Operation Baghdad Pups : SPCA International

This is a picture of our founder, Jesse Adams, in February of 2015, in the Middle East working with the SPCA International with their fantastic program called “Operation Baghdad Pups”. This program helps bring military dogs and dogs friended by US military members to come back home. This is to ensure no dog is left behind that has served for the military dogs helping save lives. Jesse, is seen here with 6 highly trained Belgian Malinois Shepards, American military mine detection dogs needing to be brought home from Afghanistan to the USA, to be rehabilitated from their military service resulting in PTSD. It was an honour for us to be able to be part of such an amazing and honourable program.


RainCoast PET Project

In June 2018 we took on a litter of puppies from Sooke, BC. We made an agreement with the people who had them to allow us to spay their female when she was able to. To ensure she couldn’t have anymore puppies. Here is a picture of her just after her spay. Please remember how important it is to spay and neuter your animals.

2017 Montreal End BSL Advocacy and Rescue Mission

Here we show our second trip to Montreal to help dogs affected by their Breed Specific Legislation law. This targets a dog simply by how they look, not by how they behave. Regardless, it’s up to all owners to be responsible for their dogs and actions. The fault lays at the other end of the leash, the human side. This trip was in 2017 and we rescued two dogs from Le Berger Blanc. These two beautiful dogs, Hatch and Panther, were sadly subject to euthanasia simply for how they look. We were able to save these two from that euthanasia. Now in 2018, Montreal has a new mayor, Valeria Plante. She has revoked the BSL law and has introduced science based, factual and educated By-Laws.


2016 Montreal End BSL Advocacy and Rescue Mission

Here is a picture of our leader and founder, Jesse Adams, with the four dogs he rescued that were being subject to Breed Specific Legislation in Montreal in 2016. He rescued them from a very questionable, high rate euthanasia shelter in Montreal called Le Berger Blanc.

2016 Montreal END BSL Advocacy and Rescue Mission.

On October 3rd, 2016 and in 2017, RainCoast Dog Rescue was officially at ground zero in Montreal, Quebec to work with the wonderful Montreal SPCA and to stand behind all American Pit Bull Terriers, and any dog considered a “Pit Bull” and their owners to fight against fear, hate, ignorance and profiling. To stand up for what’s fair, just, and humane for any breed of dog, but right now it’s especially about American Pit Bull Terriers, and any dogs with a blocky head that look like them. So called “Pit Bulls. Because that is what Montreals Mayor, Denis Corderre and specific city council members believed was very dangerous to their city and it’s people. Any dog that even looks like it may have a hint of American Pit Bull Terrier, or some type of blocky head look in their genetics. This is due to some humans spreading mass fear, hate and ignorance. This is what is really dangerous, not a breed or breeds of dog. This barbaric attempt at BSL is completely based off fear, ignorance and hate mongering. Not one bit of it is based of facts and science. So we stand up for the ones without a voice. We stand up for the ones that ask for help with their eyes and paws, not their voice. For we are their voice, we are the voice for the voiceless.

END BSL. Education over discrimination. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts and paws.
