ABOUT SAVE OUR SCRUFF

VISION

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. 

MISSION

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.

ADOPTABLE DOG OF THE MONTH

QUEEN 

F | 3 Y | 58 lbs | German Shepherd Mix | Needs proper intros | Medium energy | Some exposure to kids and dogs | No cats please! 

We’d like to introduce you to a true QUEEN! Confident, playful, and flirtatious she’ll totally win you over in a heartbeat. From Manitoba this QUEEN currently enjoys her time in Bailieboro. Having met kids while outside she’d likely do well in a home with calm, older kids who are dog savvy as she is quite gentle during such meetings. QUEEN would also do best in a chill living environment as she’s typically vocal when excited. She’s easily stimulated by sounds and lots of activity so living in a space that’s not an apartment would be ideal. She’s working on these responses and introducing calming exercises into her daily routine will continue to do so. If you’ve already got an older pooch we think she’d do well as a second dog in the home as this could be a great way for a pal to show her the ropes. She’s working on her walking skills and likes to have planned doggy dates and other such meetings. She’s a planner alright! QUEEN needs proper introductions and will do well with a confident leader who can support her current training levels and continue working with her on boundaries. That could be you!! Ready to meet you one true match? This QUEEN’s a catch! Apply to adopt today!
