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 28/16 Max went to a foster home and this is what they say:
Sweet Max has been with our family for about the last two weeks and he has melted all our hearts. Max may be the perfect dog, he loves to cuddle, happily entertains himself with toys from the toy bin, eagerly plays fetch when you want to get in on the fun and settles in his crate with no issues when its quiet time.
We have two young daughters and a dog in our house and Max is a constant source of entertainment for them. My daughters like to include him in their games of restaurant where Max is their customer and he is more than happy to comply.
Max loves his walks and loves to run in the back field on his 30 foot lead, he chases butterflies and tries with no luck to catch them. He loves to roll in the grass and stops for a tummy rub before he starts playing again.
Max likes to get into an army crawl and looks for places in the fence that he might be able to squeeze through to go investigate the neighbor’s yard so it’ll be important to make sure there are no holes that will let his nose get him in trouble.
Max will walk in to any family like he has always been there, he is loving, sweet and funny, he is going to be a hard one for our family to say goodbye to.
Sept 19/16 Tiny little max is a ball of energy and cuddles and lovw. He loves everyone and other dogs - no issue.
We sent him to a foster with 2 girls and another dog - watch for updates
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.
