Special Note to Adopters
The following is an excerpt from www.prisonersofgreed.org. This document refers to the U.S., but exactly the same deplorable situation exists in Canada. It applies not only to dogs but to cats, rabbits, parrots and other animals sold as commodities.*****
"Hundreds of thousands of dogs suffer in puppy mills in this country. The dogs are prisoners of greed. They are locked in small cages. They freeze in the winter and swelter in the summer. The dogs never get out of their prisons. They are bred over and over again until they die. The only way to free them from the misery of these horrid puppymills is to eliminate the demand for puppies by refusing to buy a puppy in a pet store and boycotting those pet stores that sell puppies. When people stop buying puppies in pet stores, the puppy mills will go out of business and the misery will end. The state and federal governments do not enforce the laws to protect the dogs. The commercial breeders and brokers have huge well-funded lobbying efforts. Please join this fight to free the prisoners of greed. The only person who is going to make a difference for the dogs suffering in puppy mills is you. You, the people, can free them from their puppy mill prisons. *****
Many commercial kennels don't sell their puppies directly to pet stores - they sell them to brokers who handle the sale to the pet store. Whenever you hear about the puppies from pet stores, the first question you should ask is where the parents for that puppy are. What kind of conditions do those dogs live in? Are they in cages for their entire lives - freezing in the winter, sweltering in the summer with little food and no clean water being bred over and over again until they die?"

Who We Are
For the Animals is a small, all-volunteer group which aims to find homes for unwanted dogs and cats. Whenever possible, we place our animals in foster homes where their personalities can be carefully evaluated. Our wards are all spayed and neutered before adoption to ensure that they won't contribute to the tragic, ever-expanding problem of pet overpopulation,which results in the destruction of many thousands of dogs and cats every year.
Adopting a friend
Our wards will be delighted to learn that you're interested in them. If you would like more information on any of the posted animals, please call the numbers listed below.
