LARGE INTAKE ALERT! ADOPTION SUPPORT NEEDED.
SOS is headed to Manitoba. Yes, we are driving 30hrs North to PU potentially 100 dogs. Do you want one? Keep reading!
We are bringing them in as Foster-to-Adopt meaning you will foster them for 3 weeks and decide if you’d like to adopt! This is a great opportunity to test a doggy into your life, and see if they are a good match for your household! Arrival date is July 9th.
All dogs will be coming off the street days before their arrival to Toronto. That means, they are not trained AT ALL and it is likely that they have never been inside before, let alone be housetrained, leash trained, crate trained, etc. We also cannot confirm temperaments, bios, or basic histories of these dogs because they will be new to rescue care. These dogs although will be used to human interactions, and have had exposure to other dogs, we just aren’t sure what kind. Yes, there are unknowns. They will receive minimal vetting before arriving to Toronto, and will get their full vetting based on your schedule during the first 3 weeks. General vetting up to our protocol will be covered by SOS.
Based on previous intakes from this area, most dogs are as follows: Medium to large breeds - mixes of german shep, husky, hound, and will sometimes be stunted/short but usually hefty and will weigh min 40lbs full grown. Dogs coming in will range in age from a a few months to a year old. We will be matching applicants to dogs based on who we think will be the best fit for your family based on their breed, age, temperament as well as your experience and lifestyle. All dogs currently live outside, in a remote community, and have access to the general public and other animals for socializing, we just don’t know what kind. Conditions of dogs is currently unknown.
To apply, please put in an adoption application at saveourscruff.org under MANITOBA INTAKE. If you’ve already put in an Adoption App before, then please email email@example.com to apply that app to these pooches! We will then have you fill out a survey to get to know you better and if all goes well finish up with an interview, references and home pictures. We will be asking for $100 deposit to secure your spot for these dogs, which will be taken off your Adoption Fee or returned if you no longer adopt. As well, attending a Debrief/Training Session for the intake will be mandatory, options for attendance will be given. If you are not interested in adopting after 3 weeks, you are required to continue to foster until we find a suitable home. All our dogs cannot come into care unless we have an open home for them until they are adopted! We do not accept apps for those going on vacation within the first weeks of intake.
We adopt all over Southern Ontario and adopt to families that live in all types of homes. *We will be looking for homes with flexible schedules as these pups will need all basic training! Please apply! We do adopt out to families with dog-friendly children.
Don’t miss out on a great opportunity to get a pooch July 9th!
