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.
Sept 7/16 This is what the fosters had to say::Just a bit over2 weeks ago we decided to become foster parents to a Lotsadogs Rescue dog.
Duke came home with us and was at first very skittish. He did his best to settle in and we tried to make him feel at home. In less than 24 hours after he arrived, he was a different dog. Talk about settling in --- that’s an understatement. He fit right into our daily routine.
My husband is disabled and Duke is very gentle around him. Duke especially likes to sit at Brian’s feet when Brian is in his lift chair. Duke tries so very hard to do everything we ask. He comes when he is called and yes, he responds to Duke. He knows lots of basic commands ---- sit, stay and even no!
He is very clean and has not had an “accident” in the house since he arrived. He loves his outside time in the back yard and on his daily walks but frankly he just wants to be where ever his people are. Oh, yes he absolutely loves car rides and sits quietly when we are traveling with him. He doesn’t try to bolt out of the car when the door is opened and waits his turn to get out.
His first night home with us was on a Sunday and that evening we were invited to our Son’s house for dinner. Duke met 3 cats and got along very well with them. A couple of days later, we visited a cottage and Duke met more new people and Dooley (also from Camp Lotsadogs) --- again no problems. He is not a “water” dog and wouldn’t even get his feet wet in the lake. He sat on the dock with Dooley (also not a water dog) while the rest of us went swimming.
One thing I should mention when I say he is not a water dog is that he didn’t seem to mind getting a bath in the tub just after we brought him home. Mind you, he was glad to get out of the tub when his bath was over but he stood and “took it like a man” while he got shampooed and rinsed.
A trip to Heydenshore Park showed he likes kids and was content to sit and watch them play and accepted many pats on the head as they walked by.
We had to leave him home alone for 6 hours yesterday. He waited patiently for us to return – no issues there. He has a crate and goes in it when we ask him to but we chose to give him the run of the house. Our decision worked out well
I can’t say enough about this gentle, sweet dog. He shows no aggression of any kind. He is also very quiet and I have only heard him bark twice.
OK, so much for the good stuff ---- now I will have to think hard to find a couple of bad points about Duke. The first is he is still a bit shy about loud noises or things that startle him, come on now – who isn’t? Oh, yes one more thing – he tends to snore sometimes!!
He would be a wonderful addition to any forever family – with kids or without, with other pets – dogs or cats, families with persons with a disability, working couples, seniors --- you name it.
Duke is one amazing little dog!!
Aug 22/16 This dog is awesome! He is SO GOOD he 100% flies under the radar,. Never attacks opur attention with bad beahviour and we forget to update him.
He is lower energy but needs regular walks, loves ppl, would be great for kids of all ages but ones old enuf to walk and play with him would be ideal. He loves other dogs and wont be an issue for cats

june 19/16 Duke-M-3 yrs old-beagle /basett-choc and white----laid back--good with other dogs great with people
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.
