All adoptions begin with the completion and submission of our . Please note, that the placement of dogs entrusted into our care our number one priority. Applicants are carefully screened for suitability and compatibility and must demonstrate that they are prepared, fully and unconditionally to care for the dog they wish to adopt. Upon receipt of your application a Placement Coordinator will contact you to review your application, further explain our adoption process, answer all your questions and connect you with an Adoption Coordinator who will facilitate your adoption. A home visit, the signing of an adoption agreement and the payment of an assigned adoption donation will complete the adoption process.

Unlike animal shelters, we do not receive Government funding or other forms of income. We rely strictly on adoption fees and donations to cover the costs associated with rescuing dogs from the shelters or puppy mills (we pay them an adoption fee), veterinary expenses, dog food and supplies, telephone and gas bills, and all other expenses incurred while providing for the dogs in our care.
The first step in adopting a dog is to complete an adoption application. Be specific in your answers to give us the best possible picture of your home and family. A volunteer will review your application and get back to you within 1-2 days. Due to the high volume of adoption applications, we use email to communicate initially during the screening process. Please remember to check your email for our response, and if you do not receive a reply to your application within 48 hours, feel free to send us an email.
Sometimes we may have concerns regarding an application, and we reserve the right to deny an application if we feel there is a reason the home would not be appropriate for one of our dogs. If we will not be proceeding with your application, we will do our best to communicate this in a timely fashion.
As we follow-up on our adoptions for the life of the dog and take the dog back if the adoption is not successful, it is important to keep our dogs in our geographic area. Our Georgraphical area is withing 200km of London, Ontario.
Making the Right Decision!
A home check is required for approval of an application and will be done prior to (or at the time of) adoption. The volunteer visiting your home will check your fence and gates for security, and will make sure that there aren't any safety hazards or other concerns within the home. In addition, we want to makes sure that any current pets in the home are also well cared for.
All dogs will be spayed or neutered prior to adoption, and vaccinations (DHLPP) will be given if not already current. CCACR uses the Microchip for permanent identification of dogs. The microchip will be implanted prior to adoption. Some dogs have additional health needs, which will be addressed by our veterinarian as necessary. We do not heart worm test Canadian dogs; but, we strongly advise you to follow up with your veterinarian and request a heart worm test.
We are a private rescue group comprised of volunteers committed to helping dogs in need regardless of breed or place of birth through provisions of interim care and arrangement of adoption.
We are devoted to the rescue, rehabilitation and placement of abandoned, abused and unwanted dogs that presently reside, through no fault of their own, in kill shelters throughout Canada and United States. Whenever possible, we also assist dogs that, because of extenuating circumstances, are unable to remain in their homes with their owners.
Canine Connect a Care and My Boxer Rescue aspires to a society in which dogs are accorded the right to life, and are recognized as beings with innate emotions and feelings that have the unconditional right to protection under the Criminal Code, veterinary treatment and care, nutritious food, training, a life long home complete with respect and love.
CCACR and MBR work toward this end by:
• Advocating for canine rights and privilege
• Alleviating suffering by providing veterinary care and shelter in an established foster home program
• Educate the public through community networking, seminars, and workshops regarding health care and owners’ responsibility concerning spaying and neutering.
WE ARE A FOSTER BASED PROGRAM
Foster families are our lifeblood! Since we do not have a shelter, the foster care is crucial to our rescue work and the well-being of our dogs. Most of the dogs that come into our care are in desperate need so it is important to give them as much comfort and security as possible. A foster family provides these precious dogs with a temporary home where he/she can feel like a valued family member. Foster homes not only spare them from the stress of confinement in a cage in a shelter/boarding facility, but also provide a loving home environment and adequate socialization, making each dog a great contender for adoption. Our dogs remain in foster homes until adoption – without foster families, we have no choice but to place our dogs in a boarding kennel.
