Hi, my name is Rush!

I’m a medium sized Border Collie, about 35 pounds, and my vet thinks I was born around April 2014. I’m enjoying my time with my foster family, but I’d really like to find my forever home. Life hasn’t been easy for me so I’m only just learning what it’s like to relax. I wasn’t properly socialized so I am a bit timid and skittish. I’ve made huge improvements since coming to my foster family in May though!

My foster parents are trying to help me learn how to be more comfortable being outside, but I do have to be on a leash - I still find the world a little scary and may run away if I’m not. This means I need quite a bit of supervision - even to go out to the bathroom!

My favourite place in the entire house is underneath the kitchen table but I’m starting to get more
comfortable cuddling with my foster mom. I have the potential to be a very loving companion, and would do best in a home that isn’t too loud and ideally has another dog (or 2) to help me remember not to be frightened all the time. I am fine with kids if they are calm otherwise, I can get scared.

I think with the right home, I can learn that the world is really a wonderful place!

About New Hope Dog Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a registered charitable organization of (867121808RR0001) volunteers based in Saskatoon, SK. dedicated to rescuing unwanted, stray, abandoned, neglected and abused dogs. All of our rescued dogs are placed in foster care homes when we have a foster home available until a permanent home can be found. Here the dogs receive much needed attention, love, training, and exercise on a daily basis. Being in a home environment can eliminate stress, neurotic behaviors, and illness that may happen with living in a cage or kennel. Being in a home environment allows for an on-going assessment of the dog and what the dog is like to live with. Knowing the dogs personality and quirks helps to determine the best possible permanent home for each dog.It is our main goal to place each dog in a nurturing and loving environment in a permanent home suited to each dog.

All dogs that come into New Hope Dog Rescue are spayed or neutered and receive vaccinations and microchipping prior to being adopted.

We ALWAYS need foster homes who are willing to open their home to a dog in need. This can range from a puppy who needs a good start to a home with someone patient willing to work with the dog. We accept donations of cash (pays for medical expenses or doggie school to brush up on manners before adoption), crate, toys, food, leashes/collars and blankets or bedding. The number of dogs we save is completely limited by the number of people available to help.

Come Meet Our Pets...

To meet a dog you need to fill in an adoption application for the dog you wish to meet. You may list more than one dog on your application. We will ask the foster home to contact you and set up a time for you to meet the dog.

Our Adoption Process...

At New Hope Dog Rescue our dogs are our main concern. Rescued, homeless, abandoned, neglected and abused dogs have been through enough upheaval once, we don't want them to experience it again. To ensure this we go through what may seem a lengthy process. We want potential adopters to be fully aware of the responsibilities involved in loving and giving a home to one of our dogs. We also ensure that the dog is a match to the adopters lifestyle and expectations. If you are interested in adopting one of our rescue dogs you can expect to be involved in the following process:

1. Fill in the application. Applications are received and evaluated on a first come basis
2. Our adoption co-ordinator will get the foster home to tell you all about the dog and set up a time for you to meet. All family members must be present. For distance adoptions, a homevisit can be arranged prior to people meeting the dog.
3. If everyone decides that dog and people are a good match, a home visit is done prior to adoption.
4. If the family decides that the dog should become a permanent member of the household, then the adoption fee is applied.
5. New Hope is always available to help with any issues that arise once the dog has been adopted.

The adoption fee covers the basic costs the rescue has incurred (eg. spay/neuter, vaccination and microchipping costs). Adults and puppies are $270, Seniors are $160. We require a $150 neuter/spay deposit for unfixed puppies that is refunded when the spay or neuter is done.
