Keshet Kennels/Rescue, in addition to providing services such as boarding/daycare and facilities rental, is a large breed dog rescue focused primarily on owner surrenders. Under certain circumstances we take dogs from other sources. Keshet’s focus is large breed dogs because we believe that large breed dogs are more at risk.
Neither Keshet Kennels nor Keshet Rescue are registered charitable organizations. Currently, the care of rescued dogs is funded by the owners, from individual sponsors and a portion of Keshet Kennels’ revenues.
Come Meet Our Pets...
Keshet Kennels/Rescue is located in Carlsbad Springs, 20 minutes East of Ottawa (ON).
We operate 7 days a week from 7am to 8pm. To manage our days efficiently, we prefer that appointments are made to visit the facility or meet the dogs available for adoption.
Our Adoption Process...
1. All our dogs are fully vetted: they are fixed, chipped and up to date on all their shots and seasonal meds, if applicable. 2. Our dogs have basic obedience. 3. There is of course an adoption process. In the event of a suitable pairing, there is an adoption fee of $500 + tax.
There is a fairly structured adoption process which involves a commitment of time from potential adopters, and multiple trips to our facility. We are open to long distance adoptions, so long as the milestones of our adoption process are met http://www.keshetkennels.com/services/rescue-adoption/adoption-process/).
An adoption application, and home visit are part of the adoption process.
