Adopt a Dog

Adoption Information
While each dog has its very own unique personality, one must seriously research the breed before deciding to bring one into their home. For this reason, Before the Bridge will have many questions for any prospective adopter, and reserves the right to refuse anyone deemed unsuitable.

BBSK9R’s adoption fee is $225 for all dogs and includes the dog’s spay/neuter plus vaccinations (distemper, adenovirus/hepatitis, parainfluenza, parvovirus, and rabies) and deworming. Also included in this fee is a charge of $25 for tags, which will be reimbursed in full when they are returned to the rescue following the adoption trial period. In accordance with Winnipeg Animal Services, all dogs adopted through BBSK9R must be licensed within 48 hours of the adoption being finalized.

BBSK9R’s adoptions are not finalized until the adoption application has been submitted, accepted, and a home visit has been conducted.

BBSK9R’s adoptions have a two week trial period, where if for any reason the dog is not a good fit for your family, the dog is returned to BBSK9R and the adoption fee (minus a $25 administration fee) is refunded.
