About CERA

CERA is a group of dedicated volunteers working for the welfare of stray and abandoned dogs in Taiwan and the British Columbia lower mainland.

Since 2008 our volunteers have supported Ocean Dog Rescue (ODR) through fundraising, education programs, fostering, and home/reference checks for over three hundred dogs & their new families. With their support, ODR has had a successful track record of overseas dog adoptions.

The volunteers, still very much dedicated to the cause have now incorporated the non-profit organization – Canine Education Rescue and Adoption (CERA). They pledge to continue their efforts in both local and overseas dog adoption. The organization’s name reflects our mandate of educating people about responsible dog ownership and helping abused dogs in Taiwan and the BC lower mainland to find their own forever loving home.

We hope that you will support our efforts by considering CERA to assist you in finding the right dog companion.

Please, DO NOT BUY a cute little puppy from a pet store or animal broker as your money supports puppy mills. Don't turn a blind eye while homeless pets die!



Please Note

All of our adoptions require a home check from one of our volunteers.

Therefore we only adopt out to Greater Vancouver (Lower Mainland) and Victoria.  Thank you.

Please read each dog's bio in its entirety to ensure your home meets the criteria for the dog BEFORE applying.
