Dogs and Puppies Available for Adoption

All of our adoptable dogs and puppies are dewormed, up-to-date on all vaccines, heartworm tested, on flea/heartworm prevention, (heartworm prevention while in our care) spayed/neutered, and microchipped at time of adoption. Adoption fees range from $300.00 to $475.00 depending on size and age of the dog or puppy.

The Adoption Process
Fill out an adoption application
After we review your application, we will contact you to schedule a home visit for you to meet the dog you are interested in and to see how the dog interacts with other members of your family.
We will then give you 24 hours to decide if everyone is still in agreement to adopt the dog.
If interested in proceeding with the adoption, you will start a three day foster to adopt. This will allow you see to see how the dog adapts to your home and other members in the household.
Food, bedding, crate and anything else the dog may need will be provided.
If after the three days you would like to adopt, we will then make arrangements to finalize the adoption.
At this time we are only adopting out to families in Windsor/Essex County.

Please note that for most our adoptable dogs, we do require a secured fenced in yard.

Sonny is a very handsome, 1-2 year old, 44lbs Lab Mix
From his Foster Mom,
Sonny is the perfect mixture of spunky and snuggly in an adorable little package. When you're on the go he is your own very enthusiastic shadow, up for anything from a walk, car ride, or a romp in the snow and he does it all with a great big smile on his face. When the action is over nothing makes him happier than snuggling right next to you( or on top of you!) on the couch where he'll curl up for hours.... Sonny gets along well with dogs, he loves to play and would love to have a playmate. He also gets along well with cats. He is a very friendly guy who loves everyone, he can be a bit bouncy when he gets excited so an adult home with older children would suit him best. He is such a sweet boy and very well behaved for such a young dog. He is house trained, crate trained and very smart. If you're looking for a fun little sidekick and cuddle bug then this is the boy for you



Johnny is a 2 year old, 8 lbs Bichon Frise Mix

This little dog will bring a smile to your face and joy to your heart. He is a quite dog who only barks when he is excited to see you. He loves to cuddle and have his tummy rubbed. He gets along with dogs and cats.

When Johnny first came into our rescue we had an x-ray done and it was discovered he had a broken pelvis that had not healed properly and we believe it was broken when he was just a pup. Johnny may get arthritis when he gets older.

Johnny is the perfect “lap dog “Love is something Johnny wants and wants to give to his forever family.

Pepper loves to run around in the back yard and when she is ready to come in will wait at the door for you, she will get very excited to see you when you come home and does a very cute little dance to greet you! She is such a sweet little girl searching for her forever home.


Sugar is a 6 year old, 10lbs. Yorkshire Terrier
From her Foster Family,
Sugar is that, as sweet as candy and is a very good girl. She is doing really well in her training and only piddles in the house when I miss the signals. She gets along with my other two dogs and loves to run and play in the yard. She doesn't do too well on a leash but in time she will get the hang of it. She eats really well. I don't recommend sugar go to a family with young children as she doesn't appear to like the activity that little ones display, she will get scared, she doesn't like loud noises and will react if someone makes a loud sound. She will bark at strangers but if they are slow with her she settles down, I find her very protective of her person. She sleeps in bed with me and the other two dogs but will get down if she gets too hot.
I would recommend a crate for the 1st few nights or when the person leaves her alone as she will feel more comfortable. After a while you can try leaving her out for longer periods just to make sure she feels secure.
Sugar also enjoys belly rubs and cuddles with you,

What a journey for Ellie it has been. Ellie a 1 year old Lab, was dumped on someone's property in Kentucky and a dear friend in rescue Ellie Grant went and got her and brought her home.

Ellie left Kentucky on a two day trip to Windsor October 13th on October 14th on transport about 90 minutes from Windsor, Ellie had her first pup. Drivers from Open Arms transport got Ellie to Celina Medical Center in Ohio and she gave birth to 9 healthy puppies and her pups stayed in Ohio till it was safe for them to travel to Michigan and a foster home. Sadly, you can't bring in puppies under 8 months into Canada but we know her pups are in a wonderful rescue and will find forever homes. We will have updates on Ellie soon..
