The following article is part of an ongoing effort to help homeless dogs in and around Toronto/Hamilton area find suitable and loving homes. Sometimes this effort extends even further, since there are so many dogs that find themselves in dire circumstances. Currently, the need is great but the homes are few. Your help is desperately needed.
Southern Ontario Sheltie Rescue would like to introduce Brittany, a Border Collie/Shetland Sheepdog/Sheltie Mix.
This affectionate girl was left behind on a farm and wound up in a pound. She is 12 years old and approximately 30 pounds. Brittany has limited vision due to cataracts but seems to see all right.
Since she is a mature dog, she needs a mature owner and a home without small children. To foster or adopt this sweet dog, email email@example.com. You can access the rescue’s Downloadable Adoption Application(word document).
Southern Ontario Sheltie Rescue is a non-profit group of volunteers who take in homeless shelties and find them new places to live. The dogs come into our care from shelters, veterinarians clinics, other rescue organizations, or from people who can longer keep their pet. Some of the dogs have lived in abusive and/or inhumane situations and need special care. All dogs are given basic vet care as needed, are neutered/spayed and kept up-to-date on vaccinations and heartworm preventives.
