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.
