How to Adopt with NHDR (F.A.Q's)

Thank you for considering adopting from New Hope Dog Rescue, you will be helping to save a homeless dog. By adopting rather than buying, you will reduce the demand that drives the commercial breeders (puppy mills) of puppies. The Adoption Option: Let's make it the first option.

Every dog adopted from New Hope comes with a life time promise: If you can no longer look after them, they will always have a place with us.

What are your adoption fees?
    Please note that paying your adoption fees online includes a small fee (2.9% + $0.30) in order to cover the costs of processing.
  • Adult dogs $295 + processing fee
  • Puppies <6 months $495 ($295 adoption fee + $200 spay/neuter deposit which is returned to the adopter once proof of spay or neuter is submitted) + processing fee
  • Senior dogs are $200 + processing fee
  • Small 25 lbs (<11kg) and less - 9 years
  • Medium 26-60 lbs (12 - 27 kg) - 8 years
  • Large 61-100 lbs (28-45 kg) - 7 years
  • X-large 101 lbs and over (>46 kg) - 6 years

Our adoption fees do not cover our expenses. We fundraise and accept donations to cover costs. Please consider making a donation so that we can continue to rescue and rehome the many dogs who come our way. Click here to visit our donation page.

Which one do I choose?

We have a wonderful selection of dogs; if you find one that catches your eye and meets your lifestyle please put their name on the application. Take a look at our available dog list here.

Don't see the right dog for you?  Check back frequently!  We always have new dogs looking for good homes, and we want them to find the perfect match for their personality, energy level, and needs!

How do I apply to adopt?

To apply to adopt a New Hope dog please fill out our Application Form by clicking here

What happens after I apply?

After we look at your application, you may be contacted for clarification or to give you the status of the dog you are interested in. 

If the dog is available; the foster home will get in touch with you to tell you more about what the dog is like to live with and how will fit into your home. If everyone agrees this is a match, we will do a home visit; it helps to ensure that the dog you are adopting is the right fit for you.

NHDR defines a good home as one that is a match for the dogs temperament, energy level and training requirements. A good home must meet both the physical and psychological needs of the dog.

If you do not hear from us in 48-72 hours, please email us to make sure we received your application. Applications are reviewed in the order they are received.

When do I bring home my dog?

After the home visit and references are approved, you will be contacted by the foster home and arrangements will be made for you to take your dog home.

What should I consider before adopting a dog?
  • How will the dog fit into your family? Read the description of the dog and ask the foster home lots of questions about what to expect.

  • Find a Dog That Matches Your Lifestyle. 
    • Are you looking for a puppy? If you are adopting a puppy are willing to take an obedience class? Do you have time to socialize the puppy with people and other animals? For more information on training a puppy click here.
    • Are you looking for an adult that has some of the basics? We have both active and laid back dogs.
    • What do you want to do with the dog? Obedience, hiking, agility, flyball?
Can I adopt from a distance?

Yes! We follow the same procedures as a local adoption but the home visit is done in advance of meeting the dog. We ask a rescue local to you to do a home visit for us.

The adopter is responsible for arrangements and fees associated with transport in addition to the adoption fee. These fees can include the cost of crate if the dog must travel by air. Please look into logistics and costs prior to submitting an adoption application.

Can I pay for the dog now and have you hold the dog until I am ready to take it?

Unfortunately no; the number of available foster homes influences the number of dogs we can save. If we keep a dog for an extended period of time it could prevent us helping another. We always have new dogs coming in, more than likely we will have a good match for you when you are ready.

For local adoptions (Saskatoon and area), once the adoption has been approved you have 2 days to pick up your dog. If a dog needs to stay with the foster home for longer, a $10/day fee will be applied and approval from the adoptions co-ordinator must be given. We can not hold dogs for longer than 7 days post approval.

For distance adoptions, we will allow a maximum of 14 days for travel arrangements to be made. A fee of $10/day will be applied for stays longer than 7 days post approval.

What if I need help after adoption?

We have lots of great resources, so do not be afraid to ask! We would be happy to provide you with handouts and fact sheets or direct you to a trainer who can help. Please contact us with any issues or concerns.
