Apply to Adopt

Due to the rapidly changing threat to public safety, we are reducing our operations team to skeleton team. We are doing this in an effort to minimize the risk to our volunteers while also maintaining our commitment to the well-being of the dogs in our care. As a result, our review of new adoption applications have slowed down. Thank you for your patience. 

Thank you for considering adoption! We are looking for adoptive homes in the Toronto/GTA and surrounding area. This ranges as far north as Barrie, as far south as Hamilton, as far east as Bowmanville (plus Prince Edward County), and as far west as Guelph/Kitchener/Waterloo. If you’re on the border or have a concern, please contact us about your location. Why do we have a radius? Because adoptions and foster situations can fall through, and we always need to be in easy reach of our dogs should they require assistance. It’s nothing personal – our reach can only go so far!

Due to lack of history of the dogs, we are looking for homes with no children under 12 years of age (e-mail us and we will happily suggest rescues who do adopt out to homes with kids).

The adoption fee for dogs is $678 or $791 for puppies born in our care, which includes spay/neuter, shots and any relative vetting. All adoptive homes must have proof of home or apartment insurance and be willing to register their pet for pet insurance for a free 30-day-trial on the day of adoption. For more information please review our F.A.Q. page before you apply.

Thank you for submitting an adoption application!  We are currently working to resolve a technical issue where the occasional application does not submit successfully. Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience as we work through this error.

Please check your junk mail folders – our replies often end up there! If you do not hear a response to your application after 72 hours, contact us at info@redemptionpaws.org.
