'Those darn dog rescues with all of their rules and questions - what gives?' A must read...Ľ

Visit our Dogs that have been adopted page...Ľ

Due to Bill 132 all "pit bull type" dogs born after November 2005 are required to go out of the Province of Ontario or be put to death. If you are located out of province, please contact us directly as we know of many puppies and young dogs that are needing homes desperately. Please help us save their lives.

So the saying goes ... good things come in little packages ... well, things donít get much better than little Chloe! She is absolutely adorable, full of fun, loves to run and play and is never happier than when she is with children - we donít get to say that too often. 

Chloe is 5 years old, spayed and up-to-date with vaccinations, is housetrained, gets along well with other dogs, is a little nervous around men so there must be a female in the household. As you can see, Chloe has just undergone eye removal surgery due to advanced glaucoma but she hasnít missed a beat and is back to having fun already. 

If you think this little doll could be your new family member, please fill out our on-line adoption/foster application on the left-hand side. If you have any questions, please email us at

She had been assessed with no issues and we would love to see her in an experienced home with children 10+ years of age.

Sadies is a very happy dog and loves attention. She is crate trained and enjoys people.

We would love to see Sadies in a Rotti experienced home with children 10+. As we are not sure of small animals, it would be advisable that no small animals be in the home.

Hello handsome! Meet Miles, he is a Shepherd mix and is still a puppy at heart. At 12 months of age, Miles is housetrained and crate trained and doesn't chew or destroy things in the home.

Miles is an active puppy who knows his basic commands, but still needs more work on his leash manners. As Miles is still young, he would do well with an experienced owner who will help him through this awkward puppy stage.

Miles is fine with small animals, and because he is still a puppy, he should be in a home with children 10+ years of age.

If you think Miles is the pup for you, please fill out the on-line adoption/foster application on the left. If you have any questions, please email us at

We have another beautiful rottweiler boy looking for his forever home. 

Meet Bowser. He is estimated to be between 4-6 years old. Don't let the grey muzzle fool you ... he acts and plays like a 3 or 4 year old.

We were thrilled to be able to help him from a high-kill shelter, thanks to a loving and caring foster family.

Here is a little about Bowser from his foster mom:

Bowser! He's a clumsy but playful Rottweiler that was saved from death row. He knows not how big he actually is, with that being said he's as gentle as a gentle giant can be. He loves the cold and warm weather alike, especially if it includes a ball to fetch. He will destroy any toy with stuffing or squeaker in it and loves to chew bones. He's very gentle with his furry foster sisters and brothers, unless there's a ball present. He will plow anything over that's in his way if he is running after a ball so be warned.  He has great manners when dinner is being served and will wait patiently until he gets the ok to eat. Bowser has a great recall and is usually left off leash when we are outside. He never wanders too far from his human friends. When it's time to relax he will sleep by your side on the couch or on his dog bed, at night time he sleeps on his bed in our bedroom. Bowser is a big boy at 116 lbs but he has lost 6lbs since in our care. We have him on Acana and a dollop of can food for taste. Bowser is a really great dog that would be great for hiking, jogs and camping. Flaws (because you know nobody's perfect) he nibble kisses. Meaning he gives you a little nibble in between kisses when he's super excited. Heís also very demanding as he wants to be touching you when he's bored and will sometime be relentless when he wants attention. But if your stern he will listen and go lay down. He knows all the basic commands and is a complete gentleman when left in the house while at work. I have not put him a crate as I don't see it to be necessary. Bowser is a great dog and we be the perfect addition to any home. Suggested older children as mentioned above, he is unaware of his ginormous size.

ADOPTION PENDING - Looking for a foster for Winnie who is a gorgeous 3 year old brindle Boxer.

Winnie is very well behaved, a little reserved when first meeting men but very relaxed with women. Selective with dogs. Initial meeting would be important. Not recommended with cats or other small animals.

Foster homes are the most important part of rescue. Without these very kind foster homes we would not be able to help dogs in need. We are looking for special loving homes that will be able to provide an understanding and safe foster home for an animal that has often had some unpleasant experiences in their past, neglect, abuse or abandonment. Foster homes need to be able to care for and help these animals become socialized and members of the family. Fostering is a serious undertaking and ANML-RESQ very carefully screens foster applications to ensure they would provide a safe haven for our rescued dogs. There are some important things to consider before applying to be a foster home for an animal in need:

  • If you have other pets, will you be willing to divide your attention between them and the rescued dog? A rescued dog will need love and attention, so be prepared to share the time you presently spend with your existing pets. Please think about this, and the time commitment. If your current pet is special needs or requires more exercise and care than most dogs, please give special consideration to this before you apply.

  • If you have other pets, will they be accepting of the rescued dog? Some jealousy and "pack hierarchy" behavior is to be expected, of course. However, if you have cats, be aware that they may not get along at first.

  • We will give instruction on how to work with the dog and how to assist with integrating the dog into your home, and we will require you to follow our instruction, even if we may disagree on some methods. This is an important part of fostering for us.

  • Are you willing to accept a dog with perhaps neurotic behavior? Again, many rescued dogs have experienced emotional trauma, or never received adequate obedience training. Being a foster caretaker for a rescued dog requires extra patience and work!

  • Are you willing to give up to a new owner a dog with which you create a strong bond? This is likely the most difficult aspect of being a foster caretaker, but it is inevitable. Of course, you can always permanently adopt the dog that you foster and some foster caretakers have done just that!

While being a foster caretaker is a major responsibility, the rewards are far greater than the sacrifices. Knowing that you are saving the life of a beautiful, loving animal by providing a foster home for it is an incredible feeling! ANML-RESQ will cover all related costs for our foster homes. If you are interested in becoming a foster home, please fill out our adoption application. Only serious applicants, please. Don't forget that caring for a dog is not an easy job, and it will require some time, effort, and lots of love and patience on your part.
