How Much Is That Doggie In The Window?


Here are some of the dogs that are looking for a new home to belong to. If you'd like to inquire
about adopting one of them, please contact us - we'd be glad to tell you more about them and arrange for you to meet them...

General Information Pertaining to Dog Contracts...

Many people question the cost of adopting a dog, we charge $400.00 for a dog
As a registered charity we are not supposed to make money and we certainly don't.

NOTE: Many of our dogs are injured when they come in and need x-rays,
ultrasounds, expensive surgeries and/or medication which increases the cost significantly.
Adoption fees are
necessary for us to continue rescuing these wonderful dogs who otherwise
would end up dead in most cases.

If a dog has already been vet checked before we take it,
then it is not necessary to do the flea treatment or de worm it,
sometimes it is already spayed/neutered, this does not decrease
the cost of the dog, that money goes to the next dog who may need
surgery or expensive medical treatment,
either way your adoption fee remains the same and you can consider
it money well spent.

We have received notification from a few of the main hospitals that give us discounts;
they are increasing our discounted fees. We are struggling as it is to stay
within our budget. Registered charities are required to spend almost all the money
they raise. None of us find that a problem. Because of this new fee schedule we
need to increase our adoption fees. We hope everyone understands we are not
making money here we are just struggling to stay afloat another year.

Effective July 1, 2016 adoption fees for all dogs will be $450.00 fees include spay/neuter, shots and deworming
Puppies(fees include spay/neuter, deworming and first shot)

To inquire about adopting our dogs please call





Freedom is a two year old black lab / husky mix.  He is up to date on his shots and has been neutered. He is 64 lbs

He is a very high energy dog that will play outdoors for hours on end but when he is inside he is content to lie in a dog bed with a chew toy for company.  He is an orally fixated dog and uses his mouth for interaction, so having a rawhide or tough dog toy available is a real asset.

Freedom will bark when he needs to go out and is housebroken.  He has gotten into mischief when left alone so crating is recommended for extended times.  He is not interested in cats and does not chase, though he is curious and will sniff them.  If the cat wants to be left alone, Freedom will leave it alone and move on easily.

He is friendly with all dogs large and small, male and female.  He is only interested in playing.  He is easily distracted and has difficulty with recall, but he does not run away.  He has been off leash at Bruce Pit and behaved well with everyone he met.  He is not road savvy and would need to be leashed when near a road.

Freedom is not food or toy aggressive.  He has not displayed any allergies or preferences for food.




Massey is a two year old Rottweiler, neutered,
shots up to date. Massey weighs approx 75 lbs
loves people, other dogs, kids (over 10 please), cats.

Massey is a major love bug, can be left alone
for a full day, very content to live with a
large group ofc dogs but barks at dogs passing by.

Great on leash, stays close off leash but needs
to be supervised because he will wander off to the nearest
stranger walking by for pats and hugs. Great
representative og his breed.


To inquire about adopting Harley
please contact



This handsome boy is Harley, a three year old Chocolate Lab.  He is up to date with his vaccinations, neutered, crate trained, and housetrained.

Unfortunately, Harley had an accident when he was just a puppy that required the amputation of his right hind leg. Despite this, he is a playful and active boy. He definitely does not let his missing leg get in the way of having a fun life.

With people he knows, Harley is very sweet, loyal, playful and affectionate; he loves to play and loves to cuddle. He can be distrustful of strangers at first, but properly introduced, he warms up quickly.

He lives very amicably with three small resident dogs. There are absolutely no toy or food guarding issues. Harley tries hard to play with the small dogs, but because he tends to play big and rough,  the little dogs just don’t  cut it as playmates. In his forever home, Harley would really love a big playful companion, one who loves to rough house and play as much as he does.

Harley walks well on leash. He does pull a bit at the beginning, but then settles down. On leash, he can be reactive to strangers who are walking by, but we are working on this and making great progress.

Harley is very smart and knows a number of commands (come, sit, down, paw, stay, outside, away, leave it, go pee, find the ball). 

This boy requires a home where any children are 13 years old or older and dog-savvy, and there are no small dogs or cats (he apparently hates cats). Another big dog with a playful nature would be a definite asset. A fenced yard would also be ideal.




The China Dogs

Bark has rescued 10 dogs from the Dog Meat Festival
in Yulin in Northern China. We will be featuring them for the
next few weeks as they become ready to go to their Forever homes


Arnie is our last China Dog
He would love to be the centre
of someone's Universe.

Can you make his dream come true?



Arnie is a sweet tempered two year old, neutered male and his
shots are up to date. He has lots of energy and loves to play with
 his toys. He lives with two other dogs and has initiated a game
of chase with the female although he does need some supervision
while playing. He will bark to get my attention if he wants to go
outside.  He travels well in the car and walks well on a leash.

 Arnie gets anxious and can startle easily. For this reason
he should be placed in a fairly calm household with a
regular routine and no young children.
