Please fill out an application form. DON'T fill out the email or other choices here. http://awos.petfinder.com/shelters/ON258.html has the application link on the front page. If we do not receive an application your email will be deleted. Our time is spent caring for these dogs, sometimes as many as 30 - 40 dogs at a time, and you show us serious intent to adopt when you take the time to fill out the application. Thank you for your understanding.
If there is a date next to the dog's name that is the expected arrival date. EVERYTHING we know about these dogs is on their bio. Please don't email asking for more info - we don't have any.
Please bookmark the site so YOU can check on the dog's status, updates if any etc. That's where we put everything we know about them.
We do not adopt to homes with no fenced area for the dog. They are a flight risk in the early weeks and we have the same goal - a safe, happy, healthy dog.
Aug 15/16 I cannot believe this dog has not been updated since MAY! Most of the reason is with so many dogs the good ones fly under the radar not attracting attention for bad behaviour. He has the BEST 'Hound Sound' too but not all the time. We finally got him a foster home to give him some more attention:
Meet Jack. We have been fostering him for a week now and he is the most lovable dog and wakes up every morning with a bang. He is not one to lounge around in the morning. He just wants to go, go, go. He does nothing but want to please you. Every time you move, his tail starts thumping, fast. He will even crawl under your chair when outside just so he can be as close to you as possible. He usually gets his big bursts of energy in the morning and tears around the backyard with our 2 dogs. It lasts for about 20 minutes, and then he is content. He is not high energy, but does have his spurts, like when you catch him on the bed and tell him to get down. He thinks it’s a game then.
His first day here, he investigated everything as hounds like to do. He cried for a bit in the car, but appears to be a good traveller. Jack has beautiful brown eyes, eyes you will fall in love with so easily. He just likes to wander and sniff then all of a sudden remembers that you are here and he comes running over for some more loving. Wow, throw a chipmunk into the mix and that’s when you really hear his beautiful hound voice. We love it.
Sometimes we have to take a second to figure out if we’re looking at Jack or Piper, our beagle, out of the corner of your eye. We have had some chuckles already. He gets along great with our 2 dogs and has also met our daughter’s boxer, no problems.
Jack enjoys the view of our gardens from inside the gardens as opposed to the outside. You never know what a hound’s nose might find in there. A snake or a chipmunk. The surprises are endless to him.
Sometimes when he is wandering through the house, he walks into a room and looks at himself in the mirror and admires his boyish good looks, and smiles at himself. You can’t help but laugh at that.
He takes the bull by the horns and says lets party. He is so comfortable with everything. Maybe a little too comfortable. He has met all our family, along with our grandchildren and he has no issues with children. He loves anyone, anything, he loves life. He has a squishy nose that we just love to kiss.
Jack is a diamond in the rough. He likes to counter surf, so we are working on that. He likes food so much; in fact he likes everyone’s food so much, that we will be going to a workshop this weekend to help work on this.
Any scars that you have seen on his original pictures have disappeared, due to Su and Dave’s raw food diet that he is on (apparent frost bite suspected). Not that that would take away from his handsome good looks.
He is looking for his furever home and would love everyone, children, dogs, don’t know about cats because we don’t have any. But knowing Jack’s loving disposition, it probably wouldn’t be a problem. Please consider making Jack a part of your home, you won’t be disappointed.
PLEASE NOTE IN THE VIDEO IT'S NOT JACK BARKING LOL
May 16/16 Jack went on our 6 Legged Hike fundraiser on Sat and with all the dogs, kids and ppl he was in heaven! he behaved so well! this is what his volunteer walkers had to say:
We had the pleasure of walking Jack. After the initial excitement of starting our adventure he calmed right down . He pulled but what dog wouldn't when theres new things to experience ahead, he was very responsive to a light tug on his leash which tells me this guy is quick to learn and eager to please. This boy is so gentle you have to almost push treats into his mouth. Best quality of Jack is how sweet and cuddly he is, as soon as we would kneel down he would snuggle right in, rest his head on our legs or chest and stare at us with his big loving beagle eyes. He was great interacting with other dogs and loved all people we met , kids included. Whoever adopts Jack will be lucky to have him in their lives.
May 12/16 Jack is just a hoot - the beagle honk when he is offended makes me laff.
It looks tho like he has some frostbite scars on his face - the fur may come back on raw diet
May 4/16 Jack is a tiny little sweetheart at about 30lbs or less, He cant get close enough to you for a hug and would be outstanding with kids, no issue for cats. He is high side of lower energy needing a decent run with other dogs daily and a few walks but nothing excessive, Would do well with singles or ppl in 50s & 60s who are reasonably active with visiting grandkids or in a fun loving family with kida of any age.
pr 21 - jack was abandoned at a rental aftr they moved. he is gentle and nice - no further info until arrives
ALL our dogs are HW tested neg (HW TREATED dogs are marked as such), have full vetting paperwork and obviously get along with other dogs since there are about 40 of them here on any given day.
We do a microchip clinic the first Sunday of each month for $40 to raise money to pay the bills for the rescues but will chip on day of adoption.
The Adoption Donation you give includes spay/neuter (except puppies under 6 mos), all shots, Heartworm test, deworming/parasite by us at least once and is $500.
NOTE: Puppies too young to fix are adopted out ON A 'FOSTER TO ADOPT' BASIS ONLY UNTIL S/N COMPLETED and proof is required to have the contract changed to ownership. You are responsible for spaying or neutering at the 6 mo point.
Please, if you want to adopt a dog - we require you take up to 24 hrs 'think about it' time and when an aggreement is reached you take the dog home as within 24 hrs. We can not 'hold' adopted dogs "til the weekend" or you "are back from holidays" UNLESS you wish to make a $40/night donation to cover their stay as there are many, many other dogs dying in shelters who need that space.
For coonhounds and beagles only :
If the dog you just looked at is a Coonhound or Beagle here's a little more info - A lot of people think Coonhounds and Beagles are stupid but they're not! They are just joyous dingbats for sure but very trainable. They are funny, happy clowns. They also do NOT spend all their time howling or baying. They are extremley quiet dogs but when they let one rip everyone knows it ;-)) and the sound is beautiful! So much nicer than a high pitched yap any day.

Rude owner of the company. She is vile and is completely unprofessional in her communication. If it wasn't for the animals, I would say to never give her money.
