Trying to adopt a dog in Vancouver? This could be the event for you. On Saturday, November 7, 2015 a flight full of 100 dogs will be landing in Vancouver from California for a mass dog adoption event at Landmark Aviation (4360 Agar Drive, Richmond). These dogs have all been rescued from high-kill shelters in California to take part in the 6th annual “Thank Dog I’m Out” adoption event.
When the plane arrives on November 7th, the dogs will disembark to a viewing area where pre-approved adopters will be able to mingle with the dogs. The majority of the adoptable dogs are Chihuahuas, small terrier and terrier mixes, beagles, and straight-up mutts. Each dog has been handpicked and spent time in a foster home before making the trip. Most weigh less than 30 pounds.
Not only will this be an adoption event, it will also be a party. The event will feature a DJ, food trucks, pet supply vendors and other entertainment.
If you are interested in adopting a dog, you can fill out an online application by November 5th and undergo a quick home visit. Once approved, applicants can go to the airport event and meet the dogs. Anyone who comes without being pre-approved can still see the dogs but can’t take one home that day.
All the dogs are spayed/neutered, up-to-date on their shots, including rabies, and are micro-chipped. The adoption cost of $375, which covers the price of the flight, altering and vaccinations and paperwork.
