Adoption Process


So You Want To Adopt Your New Best Friend

Rebel Rescue South Korea will consider adoptive families in Korea, the United States, and Canada. International adoptions require additional fees and lots of coordination. You must be patient and willing to travel to pick up your pet as we are currently only able to fly pets to certain airports.

Our goal is to make the best rescue match taking into consideration the dog or cat's background and your family's needs. Every dog or cat is different: personality, temperament, energy, comfort with kids and other animals, medical needs and more. We take all these factors into consideration when making a furever-home match. We are very careful about the placements we make. We do our best to match the right dog or cat with the right adoptive home because we want this to be the pet's permanent home.

If you are willing to wait for the right animal to be matched to you,
you are an ideal candidate for Rebel Rescue South Korea. As our success rate proves, these precious animals are well worth the wait.




We appreciate you wanting to bring a pet into your home! In order for us to find the right pet for you, we need you to submit an adoption application.



We will review your application upon receipt. If we have any questions or concerns, we will contact you for clarity.


Finding Your Pet

Once your application has been reviewed, the search for your dog or cat begins. Volunteers will begin to evaluate pets currently in our foster program who may be a good fit for you and your family. We would also be open to discussing dogs and cats in our care that you are specifically interested in, but we ask that you be open to our recommendations as well


Meet & Greet

Once your application is approved, a Rebel Rescue South Korea volunteer will contact you to schedule a time to come to the shelter to meet your potential matches. If the pet is in a foster home, arrangements will be made for you to visit the pet in the foster home.


Adoption Contract
and Fee

Once we’ve found the pet for you, the adoption contract is signed and the fee is paid.
