Adoption has become the preferred way to find that special member of your family
because the advantages make it a win-win situation for all concerned. Volunteers
located in Vancouver, Edmonton, Toronto and Montreal have been scouring the
net and burning up the telephone lines amassing information on every facility,
coast to coast, wherever adoptable animals can be found.
Like Expedia.ca*, Adopt an Animal Canada puts all of the resources under one roof and
like LifeMates Online*, adopters have one-on-one, personal contact with the individuals
and agencies who know the animals best. As a result, this resource can help find the perfect companion for
your lifestyle and personal situation. We are "matchmakers" for animals.
Celebrities are sporting their shelter dogs on television talk shows. Two shelter dogs
even won the Superdog Championships — a 'reality-based' television program in February that tested the intelligence, bond and spirit of the contenders. The
program highlighted the fact that the winners were not expensive purebreds from
"winning" lines, thus debunking the myth that animals from shelters are cast offs and
Adopt an Animal Canada profiles breed rescues too. Many breed clubs have a rescue
group associated with them. Everything from "Danes in Distress", "Chihuahua Rescue" and "Circle of Friends Greyhound Rescue" lets the prospective adopter choose from dozens of popular breeds.
But Adopt An Animal Canada doesn't stop there. You can search for rabbits,
pigs, reptiles and horses — you can even "virtually adopt" a chimp retired from
pharmaceutical testing facilities in a primate sanctuary in Quebec.
