Smokey [Adopt or Foster]

Smokey is a 3 year old, neutered Neuf/St. Bernard mix. His family moved out of the country and couldn’t take him so another family stepped up to help but they have a dog that Smokey isn’t too keen on. Smokey needs to be the only dog in the house to get all the cuddles. He is a friendly boy who likes the car and water. He is housetrained and knows basic commands and walks well on leash. He needs a home with kids 10 and older, a large fenced yard and a detached home as he will bark at first when left alone. We would like him to find a family where someone is home most of the time and he isn’t left a full work day. He enjoys being around people and needs people to set up a predictable routine for him, give him regular exercise and set some boundaries. He is a fantastic dog who just needs the right home. He is currently looking for a foster or forever home so if you are interested in doing either and fit the criteria above please apply!

Lucy [Adopt or Foster]

Lucy’s family is moving out of the country soon and unable to take Lucy. They are heartbroken and would love to find her a loving home here in Ontario. If you are intersted in fostering or adopting Lucy please fill out our application. She will do best in a quiet home as the only pet but we can introduce her to other dogs to see if they get along if needed.

  • Here is some info on Lucy according to her family:
  • She is roughly 40lbs
  • We have had her since she was a pup. She was a rescue.
  • She is spayed.
  • She is scheduled for her vaccines this month.
  • She has had epilepsy from the beginning and was on medication but not now as we found the frequency of incidents was not affected either way.
  • She may go 1 to 2 months without any seizures and then 1 a week sometimes. She has no long lasting effects and within minutes is back up and running around.
  • She did live with a lab previously but needs introductions with other calm dogs.
  • She can be a bit nippy when irritated but that is seldom
  • She is house trained.

If you think you can provide a loving temporary or forever home for Lucy please apply!

Lucy is available for adoption or fostering through Grand River All Breed rescue. The adoption donation is $400. All of our dogs are spayed or neutered, microchipped, and vaccinated as part of their adoption. If you’d like to adopt, please fill out an application. You can also reach us by email at


Piper is a beautiful friendly cat. She turned a year old in April. She loves people and greets you when you come home. She is also very talkative and often has little kitten conversations. Piper is really looking for a young cat to play with. She loves to chase and play with her foster brothers. If you have a cat who would like a companion, Piper could be a good fit for your family.

Cecilia & Snowball

Cecilia and Snowball were surrendered to an animal control when their owner was moving. They were very stressed and are doing much better in foster care than at the shelter. They are bonded and must be adopted together. They are fully vetted and indoor cats.

Update from the foster mom:
We’ve made some great progress with Cecilia and Snowball. They’re pretty shy, but they’re MUCH more comfortable now and are interacting with people more every day. We’ve successfully introduced them to friends and family, and while they still prefer their safe spot, they come out to interact more every day.

Cecilia (4)and Snowball (5, male) are inseparable. They spend most of their days very close to one another (or sleeping on top of each other!) and MUST be placed together in my opinion. They’re both incredibly gentle cats that love head and back scratches, belly rubs, and being brushed. You’ll be rewarded with deep rumbling purrs from each of them. They also both like to play with toys, especially ones that dangle and ones that have catnip in them.

They’ve been hanging out quite comfortably with our 11 year old golden retriever (who is very used to cats) and they don’t seem to care too much about our other cats (although they are mostly separated). Both of them seem to be ok with anyone who approaches them gently and respectfully, including younger kiddos.

They’re both reliable with the litterbox, although if it gets more than 24 hours old, someone pees RIGHT outside the box to remind us it needs cleaning 🙂

In my opinion, the two of them will do best in a quieter home where they are the only animals (or with a very respectful dog). They need a safe space and lots of care and attention to win their trust, and they will take some time to settle in. A couple or a family with older kids (teens) with lots of patience and time to spend with them would be ideal.
