Looking for a Paw to Hold?

Are you looking for a furry friend but aren’t looking to buy from just anywhere? Considering adopting from a rescue? Well, we have a list for you! We get a lot of clients asking about different rescues that they could contact about adopting a new furry addition for their family. So we did a little digging and compiled a list and have placed it below:

  1. SPCA Dartmouth
  2. Bide-A-While Animal Shelter
  3. Homeward Bound City Pound
  4. Litters and Critters
  5. Save A Life Canada Animal Rescue Society
  6. Marley’s Hope
  7. Animal Rescue Coalition
  8. Good Bones
  9. Coastal K9
  10. Cool Dog

You can also venture over to Pet Finder as a lot of different groups post their adoptable there.

Good luck in finding the purrfect addition for your family!

If you have any questions, give us a call at 902.422.8595.
