How to Adopt

from Prairie Pitbull Rescue

What are the adoption fees?

Puppies up to 6 months - $575 Adult Dogs - $500 Senior Dogs - $250 Cats - $250 We do basic vetting for all of our dogs, this includes vaccinations, microchip, deworming, and spay/neuter. Some dogs need more intensive vetting with things such as dental or orthopedic procedures, there is no additional charge to you for a dog that may have needed additional procedures to become healthy and available for adoption. Puppies will typically only receive one set (out of three) of vaccinations as that coincides with their age and being in our program. Puppy adopters can expect to continue with the 2nd and/or 3rd vaccine set for their puppy at their own vet clinic at thier own cost. *All approved adoption requests are subject to a 5% processing fee to cover our administration costs

Adoption Process

We are excited to help you find a great addition to your family and we understand you are excited too! Remember that adopting a dog is a serious commitment to make. Be sure you are currently in a space to accept a new family member into your world.

We are using a new system, and are still working out the glitches! All the information below will help ensure your application process runs smoothly.

Step 1: View the available animals on our ‘Available Animals’ page.

Step 2: Submit your application! Please provide us with as much information as possible, so we can find you the right fit!

  • You will need to create an account. Please SAVE your username and password as you will need this to complete the adoption process.

Step 3: Wait for our approval email! Sometimes these end up in your junk mail, so please be sure to check there.

Step 4: Send us a message on Facebook to set up a time to meet some animals! If you do not have Facebook, please email

  • We schedule these meetings with the intent of your family taking an animal home that day. Please be prepared for this.
  • Travel to us, is required on your part, for any adoption meetings. We do not hold animals and a meeting will need to be set up within 48 hours of your Facebook/email message to us. Please ensure your schedule will be open for a trip to Lethbridge.

Things to Note

  • If you are submitting an application for a specific animal, please note, we often get multiple applications for an animal. If you receive an email saying your application was approved, this does NOT mean you are automatically approved for the specific animal. You are an approved adopter, but we are still filtering through applications. We will chat with you via Facebook/email on animals we feel would be a good fit for your home.

  • If you receive an email saying the animal you applied for is no longer available, this simply means we have chosen another family for that animal. You can still log into your account and submit requests to meet other animals.
  • RENTERS: Ensure your landlord has given you permission to add a dog or cat to your home. Getting this permission in writing is the best course of action so there are no surprises after the fact. Many landlords or condo boards may have specific requirements for your new pet, such as falling within certain weight or height restrictions. Be sure these are clear to you and that you make them clear in your application
