Adoptions

adopted dog in Canada.

In this section, we answer some of the most frequently asked questions we receive in regards to adoptions. You may have been directed to this page from our automated system on Facebook as you have asked one of these relevant questions or you may be on this page to find out more information about dogs needing homes. If you did not receive the information you needed in this section, please contact us directly on contact@rescue-paws.org and someone will get back to you as soon as possible. Our operating hours are Monday-Friday, 9am to 4:30pm (UTC+7).

Please note that we are not an adoptions shelter. We only adopt out dogs to loving homes when they are unable to return to their packs. It is a big operation for our organisation to send a dog internationally and travelling can be a big process for the dogs to go through. We also have to wait for a flight volunteer to take the dogs to a location close to the adopter and in most instances, we have to ensure that there are enough dogs on the flight. We would like to encourage individuals who are looking to adopt internationally to seriously consider if this is something they have the commitment to proceed with. These dogs need a lot of care and attention, and will need individuals to continue with their training. International adoptions can incur significant fees for which adopters must be prepared.

Do you have any dogs available for adoption? Can I have a `{`x`}` dog, with `{`x`}` energy level and a type of `{`x`}` personality? Can I reserve a dog until I make up my mind?

Adoption is not our primary mission, but occasionally we may have dogs in our care who need to be adopted out to a good homes because they cannot return to a pack. The animals we have available for adoption are available to view on our adoption page.

We would strongly recommend contacting our Adoptions Coordinator to have a full discussion of what it means to adopt a pet internationally.

We cannot reserve animals.

We cannot supply dogs to match certain criteria or put you on a waiting list for a type of dog of your preferences, but you can find out more about the adoptable dogs in their bios.

I adopted an animal elsewhere, how do I get it back to my home country?

We cannot help you with bringing an animal back to your home country. We only organize the adoption of animals that are in our care and cannot, for any reason, return to their packs.

If you have an animal that you would like to take back to your resident country, Relo4paws will be able to arrange taking your pet back home and assist you with the necessary steps in the process.

Do not take animals with collars, even if they are running around the street; these animals are usually “semi-owned” pets, and taking these animals can get you in serious trouble with the local police.

It is also advisable to check in the local area to see if these animals, wearing collars or not, are semi-owned by anyone. Pet ownership is likely seen very differently in Thailand compared to your home country. Please respectfully bear this in mind during your travels.
