URGENT - Saint in central Ontario kill shelter
« on: September 12, 2006, 11:57:55 am »
Need help finding a rescue group that will take a young (under 2) male, intact, Saint.

Friendly, knows basic commands.

He is in a kill shelter that will adopt him to anyone that will take him, no questions asked (scary).  They are giving me a day or two to find somewhere for him to go before they release him or have him PTS if they run out of space.

I see that you are in canada, so I did a search and found a rescue organization in ontario that is dedicated to saints and newfies. Please contact them. http://trinityofhope.on.ca/home.html

I contacted Trinity of Hope while I was looking for a saint puppy - they seem like a great organization.  Hopefully they will get back to you shortly and have a place for him in their program!

Keep us posted!

He is in the Hastings County pound....they are not on petfinder.  It is open 1 hour a day, that's it.  He's in a pen for the other 23 hours.  There is so little funding for this pound, it is scary.  They try their best not to put animals down, but if they get full, the large, harder to adopt dogs are the victims.  Luckily the woman who works there knows me, and called me to help get him out of there.  I just got off the phone with her, and she is able to hold him for a few more days while I find a foster home or rescue group for him.

I did hear back from TOH, they need more info...so hopfefully they can do something to help this boy.  The rescue in Minnesota got back to me also, they are full.  I am going to contact New York tonight.

If you need help with transport, I'm in Keswick I think roughly 2h away from Hastings and would be willing to drive to NY border

I emailed my best friend in Ontario to see if she knows of someone.
I wish we could pull him and find a foster home for this dog.  Will need to get neutered asap though but right now that sounds like the least of his problems.
