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.

Merlin is a 9 month -1 year old, 35 lbs. Mountain Cur Mix
From his Foster Family,

ABRACADABRA! If you could conjure up the sweetest dog it would be Merlin. He will work his magic on your heart and put you under his spell. He has had many changes recently and has developed some anxiety with new places and noises, in just a very short time in his foster home he went from terrified and anxious to a bouncy spunky little dog. He takes some time to become comfortable with new places but once he does WATCH OUT! He is a happy and very playful little guy who is so loving. He LOVES his toys and will stash them all around the house and is learning to fetch and loves it. He is still very "puppy-like" and likes to put things in his mouth so having lots of toys and some chews around will keep him away from anything he isn't suppose to have. Because of this and his anxiety he does best in a nice comfy crate when left alone and at night at least until he has time to adjust and mature. He loves to be outside and will spend hours out there playing or just relaxing and doesn't make a peep or get into trouble. He gets along well with dogs and would love a playful confident dog to show him the ropes. He also gets along quite well with cats, actually he loves them! so a cat who is comfortable around dogs would be a good fit. He loves his walks, he gets excited and can pull a bit at first but calms down after some time. Living in a home is still new to him and he is learning his manners and is coming along well, someone who would continue this and who is willing to do some basic training with him would be a great thing for Merlin. He is house trained and crate trained and is such a good boy in his crate, he is quiet and goes right to sleep. He will only bark when he is playing and is a little shy but very friendly when new people come to the house. In the house he will come up for some attention and snuggle up for a nap but can also be independent and entertain himself with his toys and chews. He is still young and can be a bit wild and bouncy at times so older children would be a better fit for Merlin. He is a wonderful dog who has been through so much and deserves a loving family of his own.
Adoption fee is $420 which includes his neuter, up to date on vaccines including rabies, leptospirosis and bordetella, heartworm test, flea preventive (advantage multi) and microchip

Patty is a 2 year old, 31 lbs. Shepherd Cross who gets along with dogs & cats

From her foster family
Patty is a happy, energetic girl who loves spending time with her humans. She loves going for walks, chasing a ball and cuddling. She knows how to sit, lay down, go outside and we’re working on “stay”. She knows what toys are hers and doesn’t chew our belongings. She gets very excited and has some trouble with her jumping habit. She also mouths and can get a bit carried away, so it’s important to always have a chew toy on hand.

Patty is house and cratetrained but the foster family says she does just fine not being crated.

Twain is a 1 year old, 31 pound Golden Mix

Twain is a very loving and energetic boy who is totally game to go for long walks or just curl up on the couch and cuddle all night. He has done fantastic with every dog, cat, and human he has come in contact with; however, he can be a bit shy at first. Twain is very affectionate and loves to be pet and given attention. He knows basic commands and is crate trained. He will have the odd accident in the home until he is familiar with his new surroundings. He is very externally motivated and enjoys his treats. Twain will be a great addition to any family.

Twain came to us from BETA in Lebanon

Twain was hit by a car November 7th and was rescued by Beta and taken to their Vet's where it was discovered Twain had 2 broken legs that were very bad fractures. He had two stainless rods put into his legs and he couldn't walk for a while. It was a very bad accident. Twain went to a foster home where he could recover and when he did we were asked if we could take him into our rescue

If your looking to add a very sweet & special dog to your family, Twain is the one!

As Twain enjoys being outside and playing in his foster homes yard, he does need to go to a home with a fenced in yard.
