The following article is part of an ongoing effort to help homeless dogs in and around the Toronto/Hamilton area find suitable and loving homes. Sometimes this effort extends even further, since there are so many dogs that find themselves in dire circumstances. Currently, the need is great but the homes are few. Your help is desperately needed.
All Breed Canine Rescue (ABCR) of London, Ontario would like to tell you about a dear little Cockapoo named Dallas that is currently in a foster home in St. Thomas.
This little fellow is 5 years old and was surrendered because his owner fell ill. According to the rescue staff, “He had been neglected so his coat had to be shaved off.” However, his personality still shines through. He loves people and even enjoys going to the vet. Staff have called him “such a wigglebum of joy when he sees people.”
This spunky boy gets along with dogs of his own size and even tries to chase the cats in his foster home. He is housetrained, crate trained, neutered, up-to-date on his vaccinations, heartworm tested, treated with Revolution and de-wormed.
To meet Dallas, go to the All Breed Canine Rescue web site and fill out an Adoption Application located on the left hand side of the site. Then send the application via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
All Breed Canine Rescue (ABCR) does not have employees or overhead. The rescue relies solely on foster homes, volunteers and donations. The rescue saves dogs (and cats) of all ages, breeds and sizes from the St. Thomas and London city pounds. All dogs are fully vetted and placed in foster homes while they wait for forever homes. ABCR also works within a rescue network and helps dogs in other pounds or shelters when the resources are available. ABCR works with municipalities toward animal welfare initiatives within these communities.
Did You Know?
Most people don’t realize that pounds in Ontario are required to hand over dogs to research facilities if they are not claimed or adopted within three days. If a requisition for a pet is received, a dog must be sent according to section 20 of the Ontario Animals for Research Act, R.S.O. 1990, c. A.22. It is difficult to comprehend just what these dogs must endure but it is vital that people do not surrender them to their local animal control facility. If you no longer want your dog or cannot afford to keep it, find it a new home or take it to a rescue instead where you know the dog will be well treated.
