Thunder Bay Rescue

Last month, 22 dogs (including pregnant females) were transported South by 4 amazing volunteers.

Lisa DeRoy and Jennifer Caceres spent May 9th and 10th transporting 14 dogs, and from 14-15 May Shari Macleod and Jason Ringwood transported another 8 dogs South.

Beyond the incredible feat of transporting so many dogs, these volunteers also helped to free up our temporary foster homes up North so they can continue to take in dogs waiting to come into care.

Unfortunately, Finding Them Homes is currently experiencing a foster home shortage and were unable to place all 22 dogs in foster homes within our rescue. Fortunately, our requests for assistance were answered by rescues in London, Delhi, Richmond Hill and Guelph and they all volunteered to take in dogs from these transportation runs.

Regardless, we are thrilled to report that there are now 22 dogs (plus puppies!) who have begun the final leg of their search for their forever homes. All available dogs can be viewed here.

As mentioned, Finding Them Homes is always searching for more volunteers to foster. Our capacity to accommodate incoming dogs is dictated by the number of foster homes we are able to provide.

When you foster, we supply the crate, food, collar, leash and everything else you need. We have a dog trainer on hand should you have any questions and access to our foster coordinators. Beyond their daily care we ask that you bring your foster for their vet visits in Barrie, to Meet and Greets when they are available and to their adoption when that sad but happy day comes.
