Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:Ugly Mutts Dog Rescue works with kill shelters, private owners and other like minded rescue groups to coordinate, rescue and provide loving foster care to dogs in need until they are placed in suitable, loving new homes.
Ugly Mutts operates and maintains foster homes in Hamilton, Toronto and throughout Southern Ontario.
About Our Rescue Group:Ugly Mutts Dog Rescue is a committed and caring group of volunteers that combine their talents and experience to help aid dogs in danger of being euthanized.
We supply quality foster care, train and rehabilitate dogs to become loving capable companions and then place them with approved adopters into suitable, permanent, loving new homes.
We ensure that each potential adopter is educated on matters of breed specifics, health and general behaviour traits related to the pet of their choice and make them aware that responsible dog ownership demands a lifetime commitment to the pet.
Come Meet our Pets:We always have a variety of lovingly maintained pets for adoption and they can change on a daily basis so, if you do not see someone looking for a home today that interests you, please come back and visit us again.
If you do see a pet that you are interested in, please go to our web site at www.uglymutts.com and submit an application from the Dogs for Adoption page. Once you have done that one of our volunteers will be more than willing to answer any questions you might have and advise you whether we feel the pet would be a good match for your home.
Please note that we are often speaking with several potential adopters about a particular dog and showing interest does not guarantee that you will be selected for adoption of that pet.
Our Adoption Process:All of our pets are assessed prior to adoption and adopters are given full disclosure to any behaviour, health or other issues that may be affecting the pet. We pride ourselves on being honest and upfront and our screening process helps ensure that not only can the adopter fulfill the needs of the pet, but also that every adopters desires for a pet are fulfilled by the pet.
You must submit an application to be considered as a potential adopter. The application can be found on our website at http://www.uglymutts.com on the Dogs for Adoption page.
We do not adopt on a first come, first served basis and we do not hold dogs without a signed commitment from the adopter. We do reserve the right to refuse any adopter for whatever reason. Visiting a specific dog is done by appointment only and donations requested for each pet may vary.
