We All Need a Rescue (WANAR) K9 Rescue is an organization dedicated to saving lives. Whether it is physical or emotional damage these dogs may have, we plan to do everything we can to give them a second chance at life. We only rescue dogs from our own province because; unfortunately there is never a shortage of dogs in need of rescuing in Saskatchewan and we are a no-kill dog rescue. Our rescues stay with us until they find their forever home, no matter how long it takes. We quarantine every rescue that comes to us so that we can make sure they are healthy and receive the proper vaccinations and we record these vaccinations, deworming and any health issues the dog may have, so that we have this information on file for our own knowledge and for the new family who adopts them. We care so much for the dogs that we rescue and we form a special bond with each and every one of them. We love hearing updates and seeing new pictures of them after they’ve gone to their forever homes and anyone who adopts one of our rescues can find comfort in knowing that they can contact us whenever they have any questions or concerns. We will always be there for these dogs – we were the first ones to show them love and they will always have a place in our hearts.

General Info

If you are interested in adopting one of our rescues, please fill out the Adoption Application on our website. Bring the application with you to our facility or send via email to we.all.need.a.rescue@hotmail.com. We ask that you call ahead and arrange a time to come out to our facility and meet our rescues. We are very busy caring for all of the dogs and it helps when we know when to expect you. We also ask that you have an idea of which rescues you would like to meet as we do not allow people to walk around our facility to look at the dogs. This upsets the dogs and we do our best to keep a calm, comfortable environment for our rescues. Many of our rescues have come from bad situations and do not trust humans and we do not want to scare them or upset them by allowing strangers to wander our facility. We are also a boarding facility and have customer dogs on the property and we do not want to get all of their dogs excited or stressed. If you do not follow these rules, you will be asked to leave the property. The dogs in our care are our #1 priority. At our facility, there is a large fenced in park where you can meet the dog(s) you are interested in, or we can bring them into our office if the weather conditions aren’t good. Using the information you provided on the application and through conversations, we will help match you with the dog we feel is best suited to your family and lifestyle. If you are interested in adopting an adult dog, we allow a one week trial period for you to get to know him/her and decide if you’d like to make them a permanent member of your family. During the one week trial period we provide food, collar and leash. There is an On-Trial Agreement to fill out and a $100.00 deposit is required. **The On-Trial period is for adult dogs only** If you decide that the dog is not the right fit for your family, you may bring him/her back to our facility and we will refund half of your deposit ($50). The other half ($50) will go towards the rescues. The dog MUST be returned within the one week trial period or exactly one week from the date which you signed the On Trial Agreement. If you do not bring him/her back within the required time period, you will not receive any of your deposit and the $100 will be donated to the rescues. If you wish to adopt, you must fill out an Adoption Agreement and pay the adoption fee of $250. The $100 “On-Trial” deposit goes towards the adoption fee. We also ask that you bring back the collar and leash that were provided during the trial period. We like to keep these items for other rescues to use. Once you have filled out the Adoption Agreement and paid the adoption fee, we will provide you with your new family member’s health record, vet booklet and microchip info. The adoption fee for all of our rescues is $250.00 which includes full set of vaccinations (DAPP & Rabies), microchip and spay/neuter. All adults and puppies over the age of 6 months will already be fully vaccinated, microchipped and spayed/neutered. If you adopt a puppy that is not yet spayed/neutered, we will arrange a date with you to have them spayed/neutered. We have certain days booked every month at our vet clinic for our rescues to be spayed/neutered. We will contact you with these dates once your puppy is between 5-6months old and we will get him/her booked in. Getting your puppy spayed/neutered is part of the Adoption Agreement and if you do not wish to have this done, you cannot adopt one of our rescues. Please note: We DO NOT allow any of our rescues to go to a home where there is intact dogs. Please spay/neuter your pets!!

What a great long weekend! Cheerio, Coulette, Donald and Jon Snow found their forever homes!

All the WANAR rescues want to wish everybody a Happy Easter and hope everybody has a safe holiday! With the spirit of the holidays we have an Easter story to share. Upon this Easter Day Miss Haven had found her way to an on trial home! We are in close connection with her on updates and how she is doing. By the pictures and sound of things she is doing really well. Haven has waited so long for this moment to have a family to call her own. Her new house has many comfy doggie beds to sleep on, a friend named Diesel and a big back yard to explore! We are so happy for her, she has so much love to give and is now in a potential forever home! Happy Easter ❤️🐾

Tonight was an emotional evening, one of the new little dogs that came to us from the puppy mill , had to have an emergency C section, during this 6 puppies were brought into this world, but Mamma didn't make it. To much for her little body to go through. Rest in peace sweetheart. We wish you could have known the love of good people for so much longer than you did. We will do our very best to help your babies survive. Please keep these little ones in your prayers, they have an extremely long hard road ahead. Please pray for us as this is emotionally and physically draining. Feeding every 2 1/2 hours, and cleaning them and making sure they are always warm and comfortable.

Today we welcome 8 small breed dogs to the WANAR family. They are all from a Saskatchewan puppy mill, 2 of the females are pregnant and are going to be having their pups any day, we have a mom with her two young puppies and some in very bad shape. Triumph is in high spirits and is loving everyone at the facility. He is going for for blood work on Monday. We are hoping that all the extra steps we have been doing are helping Triumph, and that his blood work as improved. Jade is on lots of meds since the loss of her leg. Slowly but surly she is gaining strength and starting to adapt to having 3 legs. All of these dogs are just a small amount of dogs we help and save on a regular basis. All the rescues are the very reason we are having a big fundraiser on October 2nd and constantly trying to promote awareness of our rescue! We do what we do because we love dogs and dedicate our lives to save as many lives as we can.
