Pets at Our Rescue Group:

Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

Bow Wow Rescue was founded in 2000 and serving Huron County, Ontario.

About Our Rescue Group:

Bow Wow Rescue is a small, entirely volunteer, not-for-profit organization dedicated to providing public education, veterinary care and forever homes for abused, neglected and/or abandoned animals. Bow Wow Rescue is NOT taking in any more dogs due to the high numbers of dogs needing out of the pound and owner surrenders. We are hopeful that some of the wonderful foster dogs that need loving homes move on. Once we move a few foster dogs we will reopen our intake.

Our Adoption Process:

To adopt a dog from Bow Wow Rescue, you must fill out an adoption application, including one veterinary and two personal references. All animals will be spayed or neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and given a health check prior to being placed in their new home. The dog will be evaluated to ensure a suitable match between family and dog. We will then arrange to meet with you for a home visit. We require a fenced yard and do not adopt out to families with children under the age of eight.. All family members must be in agreement about adopting a dog, and all family members, including your dog(s) must be present during the visit. We do not adopt dogs to homes with intact pets, unless for medical reasons. We also will require landlord permission to have a pet if you are in a rental situation. Our donation required for adoptions is $350. For a senior or special needs dog, the donation is $150. **100% of adoption donations go towards spaying, neutering, medical care and fostering expenses of the dogs prior to adoption.**

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.
