Dogs Available for Adoption



My name is Cody. I am a very young 12-year old. Through no fault of my own I have found myself homeless. My foster mom says I am perfectly house trained and that I like cats, dogs and, although I love people and going to visit everyone, I would really love to have one person all to myself. I love snuggling. I love walking and car rides. I have been to the vet and am neutered, had my teeth cleaned, and I'm up to date with vaccines and was told I am in great health. I love walking on leash and would do best in a home with a fenced yard that I can run in. My foster mom says I am a great little watchdog and would be a wonderful companion for a single person. If you or anyone you know has room in their heart and home for me please contact or Ruth at 902 962 3548.



Described by those who have recently spent time with him as “an awesome dog,” Rascal is a 7-year old medium-sized mixed breed. He is neutered, up to date with vaccinations, and in good health.

Rascal is well-mannered, calms easily when welcoming visitors, doesn’t jump, and generally enjoys being a wonderful companion. Cuddling on the couch to watch TV or snuggling in bed are two of his favourite pastimes. He also enjoys having his ears, back, and legs scratched and loves belly rubs. In short, he absolutely loves attention and will give kisses in return.  

Rascal loves routines and needs someone who will attend to his basic needs with consistency. Ideally, he would be best suited in a home with no other animals. Although he gets along well with other dogs, he doesn’t like to share attention at home and he doesn’t like cats. He would be fine with older children but had some bad experiences with young children pulling his ears and teasing him so young children are not on his list of favourites. 

Rascal walks very well on a harness and is a good jogging companion. He thrives on long walks and hearty exercise. He must be walked on leash, however; if left off-leash, he will bolt and does not have good recall. Although he enjoys car rides, Rascal does not have the best travel etiquette; seems to have a lot to say and likes to be heard. Positive training would help with this.

Rascal loves his people and needs someone who would be home most of the time as he does not like to be left alone.  He will become attached quickly and be devoted to his new person once he settles in.

Rascal is currently being fostered in Truro, NS. By all accounts, he is a a gem of a dog. For more information about Rascal or to inquire about providing a loving forever home for him, please contact Lynn Purchase at



Spencer is a handsome 9-year old blonde and white Border Collie who, for the past several years, has been living in circumstances that have not allowed him to be a Border Collie–little exercise, no work, little intellectual stimulation. Consequently, his frustration and boredom have resulted in some behavioural problems such as being overly protective of his people, possessions, and place as well as aggression towards other animals. Spencer is very smart and knows basic commands. He loves to play and swim and also to snuggle. He loves to have his belly rubbed and, when he is comfortable, will sleep with all four feet in the air.

Our goal is to set Spencer up for success. He needs a home where he is the only animal and there are no small children living or visiting. He needs a lot of exercise and positive, consistent training. Our hearts go out to this dear boy who needs a knowledgeable, confident, caring person to work with him in a supportive environment. We know there is someone out there who can give Spencer the chance he needs. Currently, Spencer is in a kennel environment. He is safe and well cared for but needs the right forever home where he can be his best self. Please share widely and for more information contact or 1-855-336-4226.
