* NOTE: Due to recent flight/travel restrictions resulting from Covid-19, it will take longer for your adopted dogs to get to you. Please only submit an application if you are able to wait until a flight volunteer can be secured. Please note we currently do not have a definitive timeline.
Our regular method of transporting dogs using flight volunteers has drastically decreased due to current flight/travel restrictions. An alternative, quicker option of flying via cargo can be made available, although at a greater financial cost. The cost can range from $1500 CAD to $2600 CAD depending on the size and weight of the dog, airline, and destination city. Dogs traveling via cargo will be able to arrive sooner as they are not dependent on travelers to bring them.
Applications for Toronto are temporarily paused in order for us to prioritize flights for adopted dogs waiting to fly home. We will return to Toronto soon, although we do not currently have a timeline for reopening. Applicants from Seattle, Washington are now eligible to apply!
Ilda was rescued with her mother and six siblings from the streets in Paju, Korea when she was about one month old. She lived in a shelter for a year and then sent to a foster home in 2018 late fall.
Ilda was adopted by a friend of her foster parent. Everyone thought that it was a good adoption until this spring. The adopter started refusing calls and emails from the shelter. Eventaully, the shelter discovered that the adopter put Ilda in the garage; the poor girl had been living there even in cold winter. The wife got pregnant and didn’t want to deal with Ilda’s shedding.
The shelter asked the adopter to surrender Ilda back to the shelter since the adopter breached his adoption agreement. It took awhile, but eventually, the couple surrendered her.
It has been a couple of months since Ilda was returned to the shelter. She is still a little bit cautious and shy around strangers. It usually takes some time for her to open up. But Ilda is also friendly and affectionate to people that she knows well. All she needs is some time and patience.
Ilda is fine with other dogs; quiet and gentle. But she doesn’t seem to be particularily interested in other dogs. In fact, she likes to be around people more.
We are specifically looking for someone with dog experience and living in a house with a fenced yard in a quiet neighborhood.
DHPPL, Canine Influenza, Kennel Cough, Rabies, Corona, Heartworm test, Giardia test, Flea & tick & heartworm prevention are all done.
