Ridge Rescue Adoptable Dogs
 
Dogs up for adoption have received all vet care required; puppies may still require some vetting after adoption but this is covered by RRS (spay/neuter, vaccinations, Rabies, micro chip, deworming, flea/mite/tick treatments).  

Adoption fees include GST and are as follows:
Puppies born in Rescue or under 1 year old: $472.50
Dogs 1 year old to 7 years old: $420.00
Senior Dogs over 8 years of age: $315.00

In special cases, some dogs may exceed these fees. This can include but is not limited to: dogs with extensive dental work; dogs who need amputations; dogs who need complicated surgery; etc. You will be informed of the extra costs of these "special needs" dogs when your application is received. Most special needs dogs will have an adoption fee of $500 (plus GST, these dogs generally have an intake vet bill of $800 +).

Ridge Rescue Society is a not-for-profit society. These fees go directly to the care and vetting of the animals in rescue. Many times, these fees do not completely cover the care of the dog in rescue. Think if you were to buy a puppy from someone: Cost of puppy: $700.00 +. Cost of vetting: $350.00 +. We strive to keep our fees as low as possible so we can keep our rescue running. Thank you for considering adopting and not shopping!

Ready to apply for adoption? Please review our Adoption Terms & Conditions. After you are finished, there will be a link for the application. Remember: if you don't have time to read the Terms & Conditions, you do not have time for a new pet!

Max - approx 4 years old, Border Collie. This boy was found at large, skinny, limping, and in poor body condition. Through his rabies tag it was found he was previously a rescue dog that was not neutered nor his leg treated that had 3 fractures! Max has been improving everyday while at rescue. He has learned to interact with most dogs (not dominant males) appropriately, he will bond extremely well to one person. He does have a higher energy level but typical of his breed. Max is not fond of cats.Due to his leg injury that was not treated prior, down the road this may cause him some issues. Currently, if he over does activity he will limp and drag the back leg slightly. We will be looking for a home that will be prepared for what the future may hold in regards to his leg. Max very well may need an amputation in the future. Max is neutered, vaccines up to date, and microchipped.
