    Our adoption fee is $460.00, Snoopy is neutered, has his rabies, vet check, dewormed, multi-advantage done monthly, etc… We are opened sat and sun between 1pm and 3pm if you wish to come and meet him or any of our other rescues. Thank you.

  15. Emil says:

    What criteria must be met in order to take Snoopy home? How much will be the cost to adopt him and his food & vet/shot per year ?

    Is Lois still available for adoption? She is perfect for my mother who is looking for a small hypoallergenic companion dog. (Remember us? We adopted Paige – a husky/sheppard mix — about three years ago. She is doing great!).

  22. Josée says:

    I am trying to get in the volunteer section (how to be a volunteer) and does not work.
    I have a 14 year old and want to talk to her about volunteering, could you give me an idea if you would need some help with the animals and if so what king of task could she contribute? Thanks

  23. Hilary Scott says:

    Hi, I’m interested in adopting a dog from this charity, but I was wondering how your adoption process actually works. I live in London ON so it’s quite a long drive and wish to know more before making the trip out.

  24. Michelle and Reg says:

    Hi Michelle and folks,

    Just a little note regarding Marley.

    She is a treasure. The last 3 months have certainly brought out a vivacious personality and now can look us straight in the eyes. She knows she’s home and trusts us.

    Unfortunately 2 weeks ago while Marley and reg were out on walkies, a woman fell asleep at the wheel and blew a stop sign, crossed 2 lanes of traffic and hit them both from behind. She was doing 70kph! Both are lucky to be alive.

    Reg suffered the brunt of the hit curling himself around Marley the best he could. She only suffered a third digit claw tear and abraded pads to her back right paw. She is a little skittish but on “Quiet Moments” and it seems to be working. She thinks they are treats.

    So I am spending my time between hospital and tending to her PTSD. She is coming around fabulously only barking rarely at night now. I just sing her back to sleep and she is calm and fine.

    She is one tough little doggie, and I think NARC everyday for allowing us to adopt her.

    We will be out soon to adopt another rescue, but for now Reg can’t volunteer and Marley needs to heal.

    Thank you again!

    My name is Bronwen Rowe and I am the Programming Assistant at Watson’s Mill. Each summer we run a very popular kid’s camp called “Mini Wheats”. We have theme days and in out next week (July 29-Aug2) we are having an animal day. I am writing to ask about if you ever bring animals to other locations and if so, would you be interested in coming to our day camp?
    As a not-for-profit organization we don’t have a very big budget.
    Looking forward to hearing from you!

    Hi Michelle and the gang,

    I just wanted to touch base with you and let you know how Maya is coming along. She is looking really good and is such a great little girl. She still has that alpha streak in her though and I have to always be aware of that. We go for a walk twice a day. She stays home while I am at work and she has the run of the house. She never does her business in the house. She does bark whenever she hears a sound, incuding whenever my poor neighbour goes out to use his bbq, and she still tries to bark-growl at whoever passes us on our walks…but she is getting better. She has bitten me four times – but I think this is my own fault in not knowing her boundaries enough at the time…part of the process of adapting to each other. I was thinking of bringing her down to visit you soon just to say hi. She is a lively, spirited little girl, and I changed her name to Mayla (pronounced Mila) instead of Maya – just added an L in her name for how much she is loved.

    Michelle, mailer-daemon returned email I sent you at the addy posted on the site. Is it out of date by any chance? Enquiring about what to do about a stray who is a lovely dog. Thanks, Christine

  28. Elyse Duffy says:


    My partner and I are interested in seeing Louie and Sophie if they are still available (we saw them on Pet Finder). Would that be possible this weekend?

  29. karen gorenstein says:


    We’re looking to adopt a small dog. We have a 2 1/2 year old Shi Tzuh, and would like another dog. Is Buttercup still available? Is there going to be anyone there this Sat. March 30? We would like to meet her if possible. Thanks

  30. sonia says:

    Hi there,
    My husband and I are interested in fostering a small, calm breed dog. We already have a cat and a dog therefore would prefer a dog that gets along well with others. We have no children, so we have a nice and quiet, calm home :o) Our dog is a rescue, and is threatened by large breed dogs, hyper dogs and she has food aggression so unfortunately we have to be a bit selective. Could you please email me a foster application? Thank you, Sonia

  31. fallon says:

    hello, are there any of the golden retirever puppies available for adoption from your post january 18th? thanks fallon

  32. Virginia Pundyk says:

    Hi Michelle,
    Are you able to cat sit my 2 cats until Jan 6? My usual sitter’s father died and they went to NS. Everyone else I can think of will be away as well.


  33. Céline Boucher says:

    I visit very often NARC. I just don’t get. Ms. Mayer is the most caring person I have ever met. She gives her life to those animals, which she rescues off dead row. The dogs are clean, well taken care of and she has volunteers every day helping her out. Her dogs get the care they need; they see the Vet for treatment and get the necessary dental care. She has tremendous Vet bills every month as a proof. I have witness a Collie she rescued from a puppy-mill that could not even walk, and she rehabilitated the dog and was adopted by a good home. She doesn’t keep her dogs confined to a humid stall; when weather permits, they are out and she provides shelter from the sun. When a person sticks her neck out to make a positive difference, why should she be wrongfully attacked? I raise my hat to her!

  34. carlos says:

    I would like to book a appointment to come by your rescue. Please email me back with a available time. Thank You!

  35. amanda says:

    I I would like to attend the rescue and speak to someone about surrendering my 2 male brother dogs who are dobermain mix. I can not find a contact number to arrange this. Is there specific days for walk ins? I can be emailed at Amanda.longaphie@everest.edu thank you.

  36. hHello. coulHello, could you please send your address?

    With regards,


  37. mmayer3 says:

    We are only opened sat and sun between 1pm and 3pm if you want to come and meet her this weekend! Thanks.

  38. Doug says:

    Hello I was wondering if someone would be there this afternoon to see a couple of your dogs. We recently lost our Boston Terrier and have space and time to provide a permanent home for the right dog. We would like a chance to see Amy if she is available as we are quite attached to the breed.

  39. mmayer3 says:

    Both are still with us awaiting their forever homes. Thanks.

  40. mmayer3 says:

    She is available this weekend, she is a female. Thanks.

  41. Diane Duncan says:

    Hi there, I was wondering if Keebee was a girl or a boy? When do you think Keebee might be available for adoption? Thanks!

  42. Rachelle Dean says:


    I tried to get to your facility on Sunday to meet Sheeba and Rikki, unfortunately, we live in Fitzroy Harbour and we were not able to meet them. I still would like to meet them as I have been a Forever Home for several MinPins over the last 22 years.

    Could you please let me know if they were adopted or are they are available for a Forever Home?

    Thank you ever so much for your time and your help.

    I look forward to receiving your reply at your earliest convenience.

  43. Jill Hickey says:

    Hi There:

    We are interested in Ebony and are wondering if there has been much interest in her. I’m also wondering if you can tell me what size she is. Ideally we would like a medium sized dog, but it’s hard to tell from the pictures what size she is. We were thinking of coming by tomorow to visit her, however would like to know if she is there or with her foster family and how do we reach them if that is the case…in the interim. Many thanks,


  44. I would like an appointment when Maya is ready to be adopted. Please let me know. Thanks so much.

  45. Miya says:

    Hey Michelle,
    its Miya I helped out a few weekends ago with Julie and Jodi,
    my family is interested in adopting another pet but before we can we have to make sure they get along with the other pets in our household. I was wondering if we could foster one of the dogs? to see how the dog feels in our home and is a good match. I was also wondering if it could preferably be Maddie (Matty not so sure the spelling), I took a shine to her and I think she’ll get along with our other animals.

  46. Carrie says:

    i was wondering if you have a dog that would be good with my 3 year old who has ( sorry if spelt wrote) atisom we have been told the the right kind of dog would help relax and be very good for a child with what my son has . and we like to start our search with a rescued dog . please let us know thank you so much and look forward to hear from you soon .

  47. Bob & Colleen Howell says:

    We were thinking of dropping in next Saturday, Aug 18. We’ll be coming from Petawawa. We are looking for a small to meduium dog one that’s quiet a bit older, Similar to Nakuutti id dhe is still there or the Border Collie, housetrained, one that doesn’t require a lot of walking, maybe one a day. We do go shopping quite often and may be left alone for an our or two. If someone would be there to show us a couple that would be nice. We’ve had 2 long term dogs, an American cocker, Shtiztu, was cute, but licked like crazy and aBoder Collie mix, we had him 14 years and the Cocker about 7 or more and had to put them doen and Benji, our Daughter took him home.
