About Our Rescue Group:

Local Dog Rescue is a voluntary all-breed rescue dedicated to providing hands-on care to unwanted dogs in and around the Thunder Bay area. My rescue is not a registered charity or non-profit organization. I am just a guy who loves dogs, doing what I can to help as many as I can.

Most of the dogs I take in are larger breeds and were either stray, abandoned or scheduled to be put to sleep. While each dog is different in age, appearance and character, they all have one thing in common - they are all hoping for a loving home to call their own!

Our Adoption Process:

All dogs will be spayed/neutured before leaving for a new home. An application is required and dogs will be adopted ONLY to approved, indoor homes. An adoption donation is requested to cover the veterinary costs for spay/neuter, vaccinations and microchip. Please read the website for more information.

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog or puppy versus getting dogs for sale or puppies for sale from a dog breeder? When someone is breeding puppies, they are creating new dogs who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog or puppy and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale from a puppy breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog or adopt a puppy at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
