Adoption Probation


All dogs adopted through R.E.B.E.L Dog Rescue will receive a 15 day adoption probation period. This period starts the day the dog enters the care of the adopter. Please note, this is not a foster-to-adopt. Read more under FAQs.

We offer this probation period to ensure that the dog is a good fit for the home and vice versa. 


We are looking for committed adopters who understand that there will be a transitional period for all parties involved and are dedicated to working through challenges that may arise with their new family member. We want to avoid an adoption fail, although the dog can be re-homed if major issues arise and the adopters cannot keep the dog. 


When safe to do so, unsuccessful adopters are expected to foster the dog until it has found a new adoptive home. Details regarding the return process are outlined in the adoption agreement.

R.E.B.E.L Dog Rescue receives as much information as we can on the dog's health, temperament, and behaviours before placing the dog into an adoptive home. We adopt out all animals in good faith but cannot guarantee age, breed, temperament or behaviours. 

It is your responsibility to provide structure, guidance and love, and to teach them how to be the best they can be. 

If you are not prepared to attend training or seek out professional help for unwanted behaviours, reconsider adopting at this time.
