Making the decision to welcome a new family member is a big deal. Before you consider filling out an application or looking through our adoptable dogs, here are some answers to frequently asked questions you should know.
We currently do not have a facility and are a foster based organization based out of southern Ontario.
As most of our rescue dogs are not located in Canada, meet and greets are usually not possible. If the dog is fostered in Canada you will be able to meet the dog once you are approved to adopt.
As most of our dogs arrive from the southern states in the USA, many of them remain in the US until they find their Canadian homes.
The process to adopt a dog includes filling out the adoption application, going through a phone interview, having references checked and completing a home visit (due to COVID-19 home visits are done virtually).
The process can take some time depending on the volunteer and applicant schedules.
If you are willing to travel to pick up the dog on your own expense we are open to allowing adoptions outside of the province once you are approved!
To adopt a dog through Full Circle Rescue you will need to be 21+
Although Full Circle Rescue cannot guarantee a dog’s health or temperament, we try to disclose everything we know about the dog during the adoption process.
All dogs will receive basic vet care before being adopted out, including up-to-date vaccinations and spay/neuter surgery. You will receive your dog's vet records upon the adoption day.
Yes, Full Circle Rescue adopts dogs out to families with kids, but it should be advised we try to home our dogs to safe homes. This means kids must also be aware that rescue dogs can be scared or very exciteable.
Everyone in the home should understand their new rescue may need space and also will have to learn the proper rules and boundaries in the house. This means kids should not overwhelm or over excite the new rescue the first several weeks of being home.
If you are not approved to adopt and you have kids, please know this is because we care and ensure for the safety of our dogs and the kids in your family.
