Roger is a loving 4yr old, ~40lbs boy from Mexico who had a tough start on the streets. When he was about 1 year old, he was cruelly beaten and kicked in the head as a street dog. He was rescued and bravely survived his ordeal, but unfortunately lost his eye as a result. He has been living safe from harm in a shelter for 3 years now, but he deserves better still - he deserves a loving, forever home to become a part of. Roger is now in our care in Toronto, and has been such an incredibly gentle, sweet, well-behaved, and loving boy. He is so smart, and losing his eye has not changed him at all; he is such a special personality, and we are so grateful to have him with us. Roger has been groomed, had his teeth cleaned, and has been tested for diseases (eg. heartworm, ticks, fleas, etc.). He tested negative for all, and has a clean bill of health. Roger deserves the best, and we are looking for a special family who will love Roger for life! ROGER will do best in a home wiht larger dogs only, and no small children. He has shown some leash issues . He does nto like to be approached by strangers on leash, and needs aproper introduction to new dogs and people..

About Safehome Animal Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a non-profit organization, run by volunteers and fosters. We facilitate the rescue and adoption of animals in need by working with other rescues to remove animals from harm's way and into a "safe home".

OUR MISSION: To be directly involved in the rescue of abused, neglected, and homeless animals, and to provide information to the public regarding the needs of animals in their community and abroad.

Most of our work takes place in North America, but we are slowly & ambitiously embarking on a global campaign to help animals around the world. Due to the cultural differences and current economic downturns in many other countries, we are aware of terrible injustices that are taking place to animals worldwide, and we collaborate with rescue groups globally whose values and ambitions match our own mission.

The scope of our work is not limited to one geographical area, or to any specific breeds. We hope to become a global foundation and to help all animals in need. It is only with your support that we can save lives and bring love into the homes of people who are interested in adoption.

Our Adoption Process...

At Safehome Animal Rescue, our goal is to find the most suitable environment for each animal, and we reserve the right to refuse anyone for adoption or fostering. We want all our animals to find a loving forever home, and strive to achieve that through our policies and careful selection process.

We strive to ensure all animals are medically and emotionally sound for adoption. We fully vet all animals we adopt out, including spay/neuter. We will always, to the best of our knowledge, be honest about any health or behavioural issues. Most of our animals are stray or shelter animals, and we do not have their complete history. We cannot guarantee age, breed, or behaviour. What we observe with each animal may differ from what happens in your home; you must be ready to dedicate some time to helping your new friend adapt to their new environment.

An application must be filled out for each animal so that we can review and find the best possible adopter/foster. The selection process involves reference checks and a home visit conducted by one of our associates before you are permitted to adopt/foster, followed by a 1-2 week "home visit” before permanent adoption is allowed. This helps ensure the right match, as it allows both the rescue and the adopter to evaluate whether the animal's needs are being met in the new home, and how good of a fit you are for one another. During that time, until a permanent adoption contract is signed, the animal remains in the ownership & responsibility of Safehome Animal Rescue.

Our adoption fees are non-negotiable. Upon the termination of any adoption, the animal must be returned to Safehome Animal Rescue and no refund will be given. Our standard fees vary for dogs, please check their bio for adoption fees.
CATS adoption fees as follow: $200 for adult cats, and $250 for kittens. These fees include shots & spay/neuter.

We will not under any circumstances adopt out an animal for breeding purposes, so please don’t contact us if you want an un-altered pet. Our goal is to educate people in the importance of spaying/neutering.
