CONNECTING THE NORTH TO THE SOUTH TO SAVE THE NORTHERN DOGS RESCUE
Thank you for your interest in adopting!
Let's start with the basics, our dogs typically come from remote communities in Northern Ontario and are what we like to call a Northern Designer or A Muttsky. Our dogs tend to grow to be medium to large dogs averaging 40lb-70lbs, sometimes larger.
We are never certain what breed the dogs are exactly as we often only know what mom looks like if she comes in with the puppies. We are certain they all have husky in them. Our dogs super shed, will for sure howl and most likely will be trying to outwit you all the time.
If you are looking for a small to medium, hypo allergenic dog we are unfortunately not the rescue for you.
Dogs require a lot of work, time and commitment. We encourage training for all dogs no matter what age you adopt at. Our dogs are smart and fast learners, with routine and structure they all succeed and make wonderful family members.
Our adoption donation fee ranges from $600-$700 depending on the age and vetting completed on the dog. All of our dogs are vetted before being adopted and are given their age appropriate vaccinations, spayed/neutered if old enough and given a 1 month flea/tick/heartworm preventative. They also come with a registered microchip and have been heartworm tested.
For an application to be considered for screening, all humans in the house must be over the age of 5, all furbabies must be spayed/neutered and have flawless vaccination history and all family members must be on board. We do not adopt out to households that already have multiple dogs in their homes. There are several steps to our application process and it may take a little bit to be approved/ welcome your furbaby home.
In light of the application process we ask that you please only apply if you have not applied else where, we promise it is worth the wait!
Please know that as our dogs are all fostered in private homes we do not arrange meet and greets prior to an approved application for adult dogs. We do not do meet and greets for puppies.
We thank all applicants for applying however only those being considered will be contacted.
