A No-kill, Non Profit Animal Shelter Based in Montreal

Adopting

THE ADOPTION POLICIES

The following policies are simply to ensure the well being of our animals for the rest of their lives. Eleven Eleven Animal Rescue invests extensive time, medical care, and emotions into each and every single one of our animals. Therefore with each adoption we are careful to ensure their well-being for the rest of the animal’s life. We promote responsible pet ownership in order to reduce the overall pet over-populations and the suffering of animals within the community. Not only do we not contribute to this problem through our policies, but we effectively reduce the over-population and suffering with them. Responsible pet ownership is the only way to eliminate each issue, and ultimately animal suffering, from the community entirely.

We do not Adopt Out:

  • In regards to children or infants:
    • Animals to households who have infants less than 3 years of age or families who are expecting.
    • Animals to households who have young kids (above) 3 years of age who have not been taught proper respect and boundaries needed with other sentient beings.
    • Rabbits to households with kids under 6 years of age.
  • Animals as gifts or surprises
  • Animals to be companions for other animals because you do not have the attention or time to give the other animal and feel bad.
  • Adopt out ‘outdoor’ dogs, cats, rabbits or other animals.
  • Adopt out dogs for the purpose of personal or property protection.
  • Dogs or cats if it will exceed your jurisdiction’s allowed limit.
  • Cats or kittens if you are planning on surgically amputating the last digits of their phalanges (De-Clawing). This will leave them defenseless and permanently altering their weight distribution, which will needlessly inflict life long physical and physiological damage to the cat.
  • Dogs if you are planning on inflicting surgical mutation for esthetics; ex. Tail docking, ear cropping.
ADOPTION CONTRACT

Eleven Eleven provides the treatment and surgery needed for treatable medical conditions the animal may have when taken on by the rescue. However following the 10 day health guarantee provided by the rescue, you agree to provide the needed medical care if necessary for the rest of the animal’s life and only consider euthanasia if it is the most humane option for the animal.

You agree to return the animal to Eleven Eleven if at any point in the animal’s life you are no longer able to care for it. You will not rehome the animal yourself; the animal is either yours or returned to Eleven Eleven. Rehoming within the immediate or distant family remains a violation of the contract.

You understand that now that animal is yours, you are taking on the responsibility for its actions. Eleven Eleven has no control over the animal’s actions once being handled by a new owner. If the animal happens to bite or harm another human or animal it is out of Eleven Eleven’s control. Therefore Eleven Eleven cannot, and will not be held liable for the animals actions immediately following adoption.
