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 and the Ottawa Area.

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



Hi!  My name is Fridu and I love everything!  I’m a 5-ish year old bichon mix (?) who is happy to be alive and in Canada to start my new life!  I came from Lebanon in May and I must say life here is wonderful.  I was abandoned in Beirut and my friends at BETA helped me after I was hit by a car.  I don’t have any lasting effects from the accident and can run and jump with the best of them.  I really love playing with all other dogs and will roll and tumble around on the floor with them.  I have a lot of fun!  I am a good eater, up to date on my shots and neutered (ouch!).  I’m even learning how to get along with my foster mom’s cat and it’s really not so bad.


I would like to find a home where I can have a doggy brother or sister so I can play all day but it’s not a deal breaker if you can take me to a park to play often.  Once I’m finished playing, I love to lay outside in the sunshine and relax so a fenced yard is a must for me.  You see, I’m still learning to come when my foster mom calls me.  When I do, she gives me a treat and I really like that!  Apparently, I am a super smart dog so school would be a really good way for me to learn everything you want me to do because I really am a good boy.  I have lots of love and I really love to snuggle at night.  Kisses are my favourite thing to share with my family.


My foster mom thinks that kids over 5 would be okay for me as long as they are respectful.  I don’t want to be hurt by little people but I think they would be fun to play with. 


Could you fit me into your heart and home?


Love Fridu

Fridu is available for adoption in the Ottawa Area.

Hey, I’m Dalton but my foster family calls me Handsome.  I came from Lebanon in May to start a new life in Canada where I will be safe forever.  You see, I was shot in the face in Lebanon and now I’m blind but don’t let that stop you from considering me for your family!  I am a super happy guy now and I’m adjusting to my new life really well!  I get food when I’m hungry and water when I’m thirsty; it’s great!  I quickly learn my way around your house and only occasionally bump into things but that’s okay because sometimes my doggy sisters and brothers bump into things too!  BOL (Bark out loud)  I’m pretty good with most dogs but I love humans the most in the whole wide world.  I like to put my paws up on their chest and try to give them hugs.  Foster Mom says ‘Off Dalton’ so I have to get down and wait for my humans to bend down and cuddle me.


I’m a big boy, probably husky/shepherd mix, and I bet I’m around 60-65 pounds of pure love.  I’m about 7 years old and up to date on all my vetting; I’ve even had my ‘jewels’ removed – whatever that means.  I am very good in my crate where I eat so the other dogs don’t try to steal my food.  I’m still scared to be hungry.  I even like to go to my crate to sleep because it makes me feel safe and my foster mom leaves the door open for me.  I also like to hang around outside in the yard.  I do need a fenced yard in case I wander and can’t see if I’m going off the property.  It’s a must for me.  My foster family thinks that kids over 12 are best for me because of my size and my love to give hugs.  I would really like to go to school too because then I can learn what my family wants me to do.  I am so eager to learn.  I’m also terrified of fireworks because they remind me of getting shot in Lebanon.  I will bark to try to make them stop and my foster sister cuddles me so I feel safe.


My foster family doesn’t have cats so we are not sure whether I like them or not.  I’m also happy to be an only dog or have brothers and sisters as long as we are introduced properly.  I currently live with several other dogs and I’m doing fine.


I know I’m not ‘perfect’ but I just might be ‘perfect’ for you.


Love Dalton

Please note, Dalton is available in the Ottawa Area.

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.
