The following article is part of an ongoing effort to help homeless dogs in and around Toronto/Hamilton area find suitable and loving homes. Sometimes, the need extends beyond that area. Currently, the need is great but the homes are few. Your help is desperately needed.
According to rescue staff, this sweet 8-year-old dog lost her home because her elderly owner went into a nursing home.
“Family members tried to take her in but she did not get along with their dog, so she is now in foster care.”
It recommended that Shelby be an only pet in a new and quiet household. It would be best for her if there were no children as well. She is spayed, vaccinated, de-wormed, heartworm tested, treated with Revolution and micro-chipped. She is also up-to-date on her routine vaccinations.
To meet Shelby, go to the All Breed Canine Rescue web site and fill out an Adoption Application, which is located on the left hand side of the web site. Then send it via email to email@example.com and put ‘Pet Inquiry: Shelby PFId#25506175' in the subject line.
All Breed Canine Rescue (ABCR) is comprised of a small group of volunteers who saw the need to rescue dogs that other mainstream groups would not help. Some of the shelter dogs need new homes because their owners fell ill, moved or their life situation changed. Based in St. Thomas, Ontario, ABCR covers Elgin, Middlesex and Oxford counties. There is no actual shelter so volunteers, foster homes and donations are always needed.
