I’m a friend of the NCVA and a fellow animal lover.
A puppy mill seizure took place this week north of Ottawa in the province of Quebec. As a result, more than 20 dogs are at that city’s pound and need to be placed into foster homes or they will likely be euthanized this Saturday. Debra, from Arbed Rescue is coordinating the placing of the dogs into foster care here in Ontario. The dogs are currently at the pound and the goal is to get them out before Saturday.
The breeds available for fostering include four small Poodles, two Pomeranians, two Boston Terriers, two Shi-Poos, a Daschund, Pugs, some Lab mixes, a Schnauzer and more. All dogs are adults.
Keep in mind that this is a temporary arrangement. The dogs will receive shots, they will be spayed or neutered and Arbed Rescue will find them good homes – they find dogs quality homes in a timely manner. But first, these poor souls must urgently be rescued from the pound.
