BCCC Rescue Placement Methods

We do not place dogs with approved applicants on a first come, first served basis.  Our Adoption Coordinator reviews all approved applications and contacts the applicant who best meets the needs of each Rescue Beardie.  We try to find a match that not only considers the best interests of the dog, but those of the people as well.

Priority is given to applicants who:

• Are open minded about colour, gender, behaviours, size and traits.
• Understand that most second hand dogs need education and training and do not expect to adopt a trained dog
• Will give the dog time to adapt to its new home and family.
• Will provide the dog with lots of exercise and attention.
• Will consider adopting “special needs” dog.
