If you can keep your dog until you can find a home, we feel this is usually the best option. In doing so your dog will not have to change their environment more than once.  This, in turn, helps make the transition, although not easier, but less stressful for them.  Our organization has many foster homes but, there isn't always one available that is suitable. If this is the case, our hope is that through networking to our supporters someone will want to meet your dog.  

What you need to know

  1. Courtesy posts are made by us on our Facebook page          

  2. Hopeful adopters will contact you in the way that you provide (ie. phone) 

  3. We do not screen any adopters prior to them contacting you

  4. It is up to you to use your best judgment when placing your dog in a new home


We are always here to help answer any questions you may have or give you tips if needed. We strongly suggest checking a minimum of three references which are not related to the potential adopter and we also urge you to complete is a home visit.  Both of these steps will help you when choosing a new home for your dog.  

It is crucial that you provide as much detailed information about the dog as possible, as well as a high quality picture in order to find the right match. Include the good, the bad,- and the ugly.
