HOW TO ADOPT
We are located in Muskoka, Ontario. We do not have standard kennel facilities, as all the dogs are cared for in our house or foster homes. In order to meet the dogs we come to you.
PRELIMINARY TOPICS TO BE DISCUSSED:
Residence situation (house, townhouse, apartment, condo)
Yard or property - fenced
Children in the house - ages
Hours the dog will be alone without humans
Other household pets
Indoor / Outdoor dog
Previous dog experience
Amount of money expected to be paid for veterinary care
FINAL STEPS OF THE ADOPTION PROCESS:
The final step of the process is a home visit and we bring as many pups as possible with us for selection and socialization purposes.
We believe the dog chooses you as much as you choose the dog. If all works out, for both parties, the dog is placed at that time
It is hard to put a price on these remarkable animals but with all the costs involved in their rescue and care there is no choice. Our adoption fees are:
$350 for a puppy
$450 for a spayed or neutered adult
Only the strong survive where these dogs come from so they are healthy and strong apart from the usual parasites all puppies are inflicted with. We treat them when they come into our care and if we have any concerns they are vet checked
All dogs are vaccinated and we provide adoption papers outlining the treatment they have received.
We are most fortunate to work with wonderful veterinarians who understand rescue work and are willing to share their knowledge with us. They are Peter Jones and Ian White of the Port Carling and Parry Sound Veterinary Clinics.
If approved for adoption, it is required that a contract be signed agreeing to have the puppy (under five months of age) spayed or neutered when it is six months of age.
