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 and the Ottawa Area.

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

Shirley is a beautiful Labrador Retriever born January 6, 2017
Shirley was rescued from a horrific puppy mill from our friends at
BETA - Beirut for the Ethical Treatment of Animals
From Shirley's foster family,Shirley has come to us from a horrible situation. This sweet girl just wants to be loved and also give love. She will accept belly rubs all day if you’re willing. She loves her “people” and is never far from you. When you pet her, she closes her eyes and melts with your touch.
Shirley is fully house trained and has had no accidents since she had been with us. She is crate trained but only goes in at night here. She loves playing with you or with her toys. She settles down quietly when asked,remember she will do anything for belly rubs. She has mastered sit and down, usually rolling over for her favorite past time. She likes being outside with you playing with her toys. She plays well with her 2 foster sisters. Each day she gains more confidence in her new life as a family member. Shirley also likes going in the car for a ride.
She is perfecting her indoor manors and has caught on quite well to all the “new rules” . She’s a smart girl and it will not take long for her to fully understand what is expected of her. She does get excited to see her people and has to be reminded “no jumping” she has come a long way with this command.
Shirley is so loving and will absolutely make a great addition to a lucky family
Adoption fee is $440.00 which includes her spay, up to date on vaccines including rabies, leptospirosis and bordetella, and microchip.


LaFille, is a Pointer Mix born, 12/19/17

Shy when you meet her but warms up quickly.

Good with dogs and children, Loves going on long walks, playing and running in the yard and chasing squirrels!

In the home she loves being with her “people” and snuggles on the couch. LaFille would do great in the home with another dog; she is ok with cats but does like to chase them.

Lafille must go to a home with a secured fenced in yard as she can climb a chain link fence.

This gentle very sweet girl is looking for her forever home

Billy is a 12 pound Bichon, born February 25, 2017
From his Foster Mom,
My little boy Billy! Came from Lebanon to experience LOVE
This sweet dog is little but his capacity to love is big and will be a great addition to the right home. Billy is a little timid at times and can get a little nervous but that quickly subsides with some pets and snuggles.
Billy loves to cuddle up in the couch. His new theme song is "addicted to love", now that he has had a taste he cannot get enough. He will paw at you when you stop petting him and he will even give a little bark to let you know you forgot to keep petting him.
Sweet Billy does have a little anxiety when his people leave the house and barks, but he does settle down. He does not like his crate as it causes him more anxiety, he has not needed to be crated in our home. He gets along well with his Foster Fur Sisters and his Human foster sister.
Billy gets very excited to go outside, he does need patience as he does have some accidents but he is a beautiful work in progress, with love, trust and a place to call home he will sort the rules out quickly.
Billy loves to walk on leash, pulls at first as he is excited but then settles for a nice walk. He also loves to go with you in the car but he takes time to relax in the car, he worries I think he is being taken somewhere, after living an unsure life before. But I know for sure he would get use to it with more adventures and be a great sidekick. Billy does not like cats unfortunately so he needs to be in a home with no kitties. He has learned his name and the word no, he is understanding what outside means too.
He would thrive in a home as the only dog as he craves so much love and attention but not to say he cannot get along with the right friend. He had a great time with some fur cousins over the holidays.
So if you are looking for a sidekick, co-pilot or partner in crime, Billy is your boy! He has so much love to share with that special person/people.
Give him a safe and loving home that he can grow old in and learn what true love is.
Billy does need to go to a home with a fenced in yard.
Adoption fee is $42

440.00h includes his neuter, up to date on vaccines including rabies, leptospirosis and bordetella, and microchip

Mantra is a beautiful 17 months old, Female Labrador Mix who weighs 43 lbs.
Mantra has had a very sad young life, she was found shot in the chest on the streets of Lebanon then had surgery for pyometra soon after coming into our rescue, but this has not affected her loving heart
. Mantra is now 100% healthy and looking for her forever home.
Hello everyone! My name is Mantra! I'm a very calm and loving girl, and a cuddler in training (I've almost got the hang of it!). As hard as I'm trying to love my people, the world is still very scary to me, and I spook easily. All I need in this life is love and a lot of patience. I tend to hide from strangers in the house but I will venture out if I know there is a hot dog involved!!! I like playing with my foster sister, but I could handle being by myself. It took a couple days for me to get used to her, but now we're best friends! My foster family has a cat, and I haven't decided how I feel about her yet, so a house without a cat would be best. All I want is a family that I can love, and work towards mastering my cuddling skills with!

Mantra does require a fenced in yard.
Adoption fee is $440.00 which includes her spay, up to date on vaccines including rabies, leptospirosis and bordetella, and microchip.
