As of January 1, the South Dundas Animal Shelter was looking for homes for eight poor, unfortunate dogs, who have found themselves in very sad situations for reasons they (and those of us trying to help) don't understand. For information on the dogs listed or for the other five dogs at the Shelter please call 613-543-2980.
There are no set adoption fees. However, donations to assist with the care of the animals past the four days that they are the responsibility of the municipality are expected. Donations should be determined by the size of the dog and its length of stay.
As of January 1, municipal dog tags must be purchased for all dogs adopted from the shelter.
For anyone unable to adopt a new best friend, but who wish to help the dogs, financial donations, donations of dog care items (blankets for bedding, puppy pillows, food bowls etc) and food donations are very much appreciated. They may be dropped off at the Morrisburg Animal Hospital which has so kindly agreed to provide space and their time to help out. We do all so much appreciate their efforts.
This week's dogs:
Photo 2-Hungry & Homeless (Adopted!!!! as of January 3)
Hi. I am a fawn coloured, 2-3 year old female boxer, and I was rescued while running loose on the 401. Thanks to the Animal Shelter, I have a warm bed and some food…cause I sure have been hungry. Yep, those are my ribs you see in my picture. I sure am looking forward to a permanent loving home and some good food.

Hi. I am a very friendly and playful yellow Lab mix puppy. I am only about 10 weeks old, and I am lonely for my mom and brothers and sisters. I was rescued in the Stampville area, a suspected unwanted Christmas gift. I know I won’t be able to find my mommy, so I sure would like to become some family’s very best friend. I really, really can’t wait to find someone to love me and to play with me.
Hi. I am a beautiful female, shepherd mix and was rescued in the Dundela area. I am very calm and very friendly and house-trained. I don’t understand what has happened, but I am so looking forward to a new forever home.
Financial donations (cheques) must be made payable to the Municipality of South Dundas and must be clearly marked for the Animal Shelter.
We advise all adopting persons/families to please have their new best friend neutered/spayed. We also advise that in almost all of the cases, we do not know the background of the dogs. Ages are estimates and in the case of neglected or abused dogs, new owners should expect to be patient and understanding as the dog is rehabilitated in a loving home.
The Looking for Forever Homes column in The Leader is a public service column. The Leader accepts no responsibility for the dogs or the adoption process.
