How to Make Sure an Animal Rescue Organization Isn’t Fake

 

There are steps you can take and warning signs to watch for to ensure you’re adopting a pet from a legitimate animal rescue organization:

 

  • Many rescues are actually registered not-for-profit charitable organizations and will have a registered charity number in Canada, and in the U.S. will be a registered 501 (c).  As such, they have mandates they must adhere to in order to maintain their legal charitable status.  

  • Be wary of rescue organizations that will only communicate with you online.

  • Reputable rescue organizations will always want to visit your home for an inspection and do reference checks.

  • Be cautious of organizations that ask to meet you only in a parking lot or other public place.

  • Legitimate rescue organizations won’t adopt out puppies or kittens younger than 8 weeks old - any earlier and they lose out on social and behaviour lessons from the mother and litter-mates that can result in behaviour issues.

  • Always request to see veterinary records for the pet you want to adopt. Make sure the pet is current on vaccinations and has been examined by a licensed veterinarian. Also make sure the paperwork matches the pet you are adopting.

  • Consider adopting from a local animal shelter or humane society, which are required to provide medical attention and veterinary care for their animals.
