- Released Dogs
Not all dogs are cut out to be service or therapy dogs. Canine Partners of the Rockies releases dogs from the program when necessary. We never know when that is going to happen and hope for very few releases. Dogs are released for a variety of reasons which generally fall into two categories – medical and temperament. We always disclose the reason for the release to the adopting organization, person or family.
When CaPR releases a dog it could be placed in an alternate career such as search and rescue or drug detection. CaPR only arranges alternate placements with known and reputable organizations. A released dog may also be available for adoption as a pet dog. Individuals (families) interested in adopting a released puppy or mature dog, must complete an application. An application can be obtained by sending an email request to [email protected].
When a dog is available for adoption, all applications are reviewed. Released puppies and dogs are matched with forever homes to insure a safe and appropriate adoption. Matching a particular dog with the best home for its enjoyment and safety is paramount. The adoptor is always told why the dog is being released. The current adoption fee is $1,000.
