At Rescued Paws @ Alpine, we are family ran and owned facility. We have integrated a small rescue to our 'home away from home' for dogs that find themselves displaced, in a home that they don’t fit in well with, or other special circumstances.
Our surrender contract allows the current pet parents to give us information on behavior and medical needs, and then to be able to decide if we can help them. Rescued Paws is not a typical ‘rescue’ as we do not seek out to pull dogs from homes or situations, but are more than willing to help other rescues when the time comes!
Dogs brought to us are in situations in which it simply is not healthy for the dog to continue or there is no one to care for the dog and they are surrendered to us. We locally adopt and locally re-home dogs by world of mouth from clients and friends. We pride ourselves in knowing that we will see them again in visits or contact through the years after an adoption.
Why we accept a surrender: We understand that sometimes humans can choose dogs that are not suited for their family, it can create anxiety, behavior issues, fear, issues with children, other dogs, and energy levels that you are not prepared for. Our main goal is find homes that are well suited for the dogs and the new pet family. We are only a home between homes for our furry friends and we love and care for them as our own.
We may not always have lots of dogs to choose from, as our dogs fluctuate depending on situations they are in.
CHECK BACK OFTEN!
How ADOPTION works
We appreciate you taking the time to fill out our adoption or foster application, and will keep it on file for when we have a dog come to us that may suit your requests and their needs close to perfect.
After we receive an application, we can set up meet and greets with you and the requested dog, to see how they feel about you. If we choose to move forward, all is well, we will arrange to come to your home, and home check.
During this we also let the dog check you, after all it’s for them! If they are happy to be there, we watch the behavior and comfort of the dog, help you introduce them to your home, other animals or children. Then we will continue to the adoption contract, and do a 24 hour trial. During your 24 hour trial, for any reason, you may cancel and full refund is given. We continue on if things are well to a 7 day trial, whereas the same return policy’s upheld, full refund within a week.
Once you’re made your full week and during that time fell in love and can’t look back, we officially transfer files from vets to your vet and allow full ownership.
FORMS & WAIVERS
Thank you for considering an adoption and we look forward to building more furry relationships over the years to come.
We have a partner vet, Animal Care Center in Strathmore to care for and vet check our Rescued Paws dog. Our dogs are fed on donated food from our pals at Strathmore PetPlanet and other donators. We do accept bedding /leashes/collars/food /toys /treats etc. and use these to care for and send to foster and adoption homes when needed.
*we do not intake severe medical needs dogs, or dogs with human aggression. We kindly defer these cases to other rescues that are larger with the appropriate trainers and vet care.
*we are non-profit, but are not registered. We offer a simple process and avoid a lot of the complex rescue adoptions by keeping things simple.
He’s a 3 year old Great Pyranese/Lab, neutered, vaccinated and ready to find a home to love him!
Loki has spent a great deal as an outside pet, but is home worthy. Smart and easy to train, very loyal and sweet natured boy. Loki wants a family to love and teach him a great family life! Take him for walks and cuddle!
He will need a home with no livestock, but is good with other dogs. Cats we are unsure on still, so best to be a cat free home.
Please fill out adoption application, if you have any specific questions regarding adoption please message us.
Ziggy is a Great Pyranese/lab, spayed and vaccinated beauty!
She is shy, but so sweet once she trusts you. She is 3 years old, walks on leash well but is very timid and needs to be shown encouragement to become relaxed with new adventures.
Like her brother Loki needs a family to teach her what a loving family can offer her! Take her for walks and cuddle her. They have been mostly outside dogs, however they are so smart and have learned their bathroom areas already!
There will need to be a quiet home for Ziggy and as with Loki, no livestock. Ziggy doesn't like dogs that are loud and barking in her face. We are also unsure of cats, so best for a cat free home.
Please fill out the adoption application for her and if you have a specific question regarding the process please ask.
This is Toby!
Toby is a 9 year old Jack Russel/Chihuahua mix. He’s neutered and vaccinated, ready to start looking for his
new dog parents!
Toby has been through a lot in his life so far, two steel back legs, and ear infections due to food issues but we have figured out a healthy balance and he will need to stay on a good limited diet to avoid ear infections.
He’s such a good boy, calm, affectionate and patient, he is great with other dogs and kids. Cats we are u sure on, so cat free home at the moment.
Please fill out adoption applications to inquire for Toby!
Max is a unique boy!
Meet this fluffy Wolf hound/terrier who is FULL of personality! He is so sweet, bouncy and playful, excited to see everyone and so gentle!
Max is unknown on his age, approx 3, neutered and vaccinated and ready for his new adventure!
Max will need a home to give him exercise, love, a yard, but no livestock or cats please. His yard will need to be safe, as he can squeeze his big body through little holes to be near his humans! He just wants love, he is kid friendly.
Please fill out adoption applications for Max!
