SNOOPY needs everyone's help!
3 WAYS TO HELP SNOOPY:
1) Donate to her current boarding fees by clicking DONATE above
2) Spread the word that SNOOPY needs a foster/adopter! Share this post to all of your friends, family, enemies, etc.
3) Foster SNOOPY! We'd like her to go to a calm home environment in a quieter area so there are fewer stressors for her. Outside of Toronto preferred. And yes, we accept fosters all over Southern Ontario! SNOOPY is fine to be crated for a full workday FYI! So.. Do your friends describe you as being a good leader? Are you also patient? Wow you may be the perfect fit. To apply to foster or to ask questions about fostering this gal, please email email@example.com with some info on WHY you'd be a great fit for SNOOPY. Don't sell yourself short for SNOOPY until you chat with us! Send in an email so we can figure out if it would be ideal for her or not! We want to hear from you!
ABOUT SAVE OUR SCRUFF
Rescue all types of dogs from unfortunate situations and provide them with the necessary medical and rehabilitation care that they require, while in loving temporary foster care. During this process, we work to find them well-matched, carefully screened forever homes and as well work towards preventing the need for rescue in the future.
Save Our Scruff is dedicated to preventing overpopulation as well as stopping the cycle of abandonment/neglect while also providing aid/support due to these concerns. We provide care and rehabilitation for stray, abandoned or displaced dogs. We strive to position ourselves as a leader on matters that promote and improve the welfare of dogs through enhancement, protection, care, education and advocacy.
SPONSOR an SOS DOG!
Scruff Start Up Pack – $25
Your gift could get a rescue pup set up with supplies to start their new life. These packs are specifically catered to them considering their size, background, dietary restrictions, etc. in order to set them up for success.
Board and Train – $150
Save Our Scruff prides ourselves on taking dogs in no matter their size, age, or breed. Sometimes these pups need a little bit of help with training due to their unfortunate past. Your gift would be able to cover board and train for a pup for a week to get them one step closer to their furever home.
No Hangry Dogs – $50
We often have dogs come to us malnourished and your gift could supply a dog with food for their time in foster care. This could also provide treats to aid in training when dogs are transitioning out of #streetlife
A+ Health – $200
We make sure all of our pups have a clean bill of health before they move on to their furever home! Your gift of 200$ could ensure that our new arrival pups get any vet services or vaccinations they need to live their best lives!
FLYING HIGH -$75
50% of Save Our Scruff’s dogs come from places outside of Canada where conditions are quite bad for stray dogs. (Most commonly, Mexico, Dominican, Texas & Egypt.) Your gift can cover the cost of a scruff-in-need as they travel to their new life in Canada.
Sponsor a Rescue – $450
Be the reason a pup gets their second chance at life. A gift of $450 could cover the entire journey of a general rescue case. This would be able to provide travel, food, supplies, and a clean bill of health from the Vet so that they can transition to their furever home with ease.
ADOPTABLE DOG OF THE MONTH
M | 3 Y | Lab mix | 45 lbs | Medium energy | Pretty chill dude | Needs training/structure | Needs proper intros w/ dogs/people | Not cat tested | No kids
Meet BELO! The guy is ready for his second chance at a forever and he’s pretty excited about it… only he’ll show that excitement by chilling the heck out. Fetch? Nah. Play with toys? Not today. Spend the whole day relaxing around the apt with his best human pals? YAS! Just because he’s a pretty chilled out dude doesn’t mean he’s a couch potato and he does enjoy going for a few good walks per day. Unlike other pooches who believe walks are all about socializing or sniffing all the things, BELO firmly believes that walks are for exploring and is happy just trotting along. He will need a firm and confident handler as he’s dealing with some reactivity on a leash to other dogs occasionally and small critters. BELO would be more suited for a home outside of the city so he can stretch his legs and spend some well-needed time in nature. Training classes would be awesome for BELO! He has had positive experiences with dogs after a proper intro and has made pals with both active/playful dogs and super relaxed dogs. BELO gets nervous around some people and should be allowed to approach on his own time. His interactions with people have been fairly positive but reading his cues you can sometimes see that he’s uncomfortable. He is very affectionate with his trusted people so he just needs some time to build those relationships. He hasn’t been tested with cats and a home without kids is recommended at this time. If you’d like to meet BELO fill out an application to adopt now!
