Adoption Park

Why Adopt?
There are not enough homes for all the animals that are born every year. Adopting from a shelter helps weaken the pet overpopulation cycle. Each year 8 to 12 million dogs, cats, puppies and kittens are euthanized because there are simply not enough homes for them.  You help stop cruelty in mass breeding facilities.

There are thousands of dogs looking for a forever home and chances are you’ll find a loving companion that will give you and your family years of unconditional love right here at BCGSR.

Many people are reluctant to adopt a dog from a rescue for various reasons. After all, there’s a stigma attached. These dogs were given up because they have “issues”. But these so-called issues were caused by a deficiency in the human owner – lack of leadership, exercise and training. In the right home, you’ll find that many of the issue disappear with the right amount of love, patience and attention.

One of the many great things about a dog is that it lives in the moment. That means they forget the past and can’t wait to get to the fun the future holds for them. Sure, the previous owner might have thought that this dog was broken, so it was traded in until they could get a “perfect” dog. But when you adopt a dog from a rescue, that sweetheart  you have your eye on is ready for a fresh start. If you treat this dog right, you’ll find it has so much more potential than the previous owner saw.
