Adoption Information

Click on this link for our Adoption Questionnaire

Most of our animals up for adoption have either been spayed/neutered already by one of our veterinarians or, as in the case of a pup or special cases up to the new owner to do within the first year of owning the animal.  We try to alter our animals shortly after receiving them and recommend that adoptive families do the same (when the animal is of age) to avoid any chance of an “oops-pregnancy” or the discomfort that is “heat” in the females or spraying in the males.

Our adoption policy is fairly simple: We are looking for quality, long term permanent homes with responsible owners. We are looking for indoor homes for our small animals, although we recommend keeping small animals indoors as a general rule for their longevity and ultimate safety.  If, for some reason, you can no longer keep your Navan Animal Rescue Corporation pet, adopters agree to return the animal to Navan Animal Rescue Corporation in order to avoid having them surrendered to a traditional shelter where their chances of survival are slim.

Adoption fees are dependant on the veterinary, training and nutrition costs of the animal rescued.  Our fees vary depending on the pet you are adopting!  Our regular prices for dog adoptions vary between $500-$900 to cover spay/neuter, shots, antibiotics, medications, (dental work and major surgeries such as hernias when needed), training and cost of living. If you return our dog (not for puppies) prior to the 4 day foster to adopt program, we will reimburse your adoption fee minus a $200 administration cost.  That is only if you have another dog or cat that our dog is not getting along with – no refunds on regular adoptions or with puppies.  Please see 4 day foster to adopt information for further details. Deposits are non-refundable as we usually do not hold dogs.

Follow up support is always available. If you have adopted one of our animals and are experiencing any manner of problem, from behavior to health, we are always available to offer our input and give you the benefit of our knowledge regarding training and most health issues. We are available by phone at 613-834-7005 or by email at Regardless of how small or large the problem is, we understand the importance of blending a new animal into your home and lifestyle. For our animal to be happy, the new owners must be too and we’re here to help.

When volunteers are available, we can provide doing a walk-through of your backyard and help to identify any area of weakness in the fencing, etc. to ensure your new animal does not become a casualty of traffic or by-law enforcement.

Whether farm animal, dog, critter or reptile, we feel that each of our animals is special because it has survived euthanization, and it is very important to all of us at Navan Animal Rescue Corporation that we have made a good match on behalf of the animal and of the adoptive individual or family. It’s what we live by.

    Hi I would like to see Bunny if you still have her. I`m interested in having a companion for my family and the 1 dog I already have. Could you please give me a call Thanks.

    I was looking at buying a Great Dane and was wondering if the one you have would be available, first as a foster dog to see if it is a match for me and then if everything goes well, I would adopt him.

    My female yorkie is 13 years old and ailing. I live alone and will miss the company of a pet very much when I put her down, I expect very soon because she is suffering and has lost weight. It is hard to make the decision.

    I hear that Great Danes make great pets even though they are giants. I live in a home in Orleans with a yard.
