WHISTLER - ("Who Wants To Play... ?)Approx. 4 year old, male / Neutered--- he loves to cuddle and be close to you, and is well behaved with other dogs. Whistler is very social even while meeting new people, dogs, etc... he very quickly accepts any new experience and adjusts accordingly. He will make a great addition to any family, but will also need to have the time invested to continue with his training
27th Annual Seguin Dog Sled Mail Run . .
27th Annual Seguin Dog Sled Mail Run
Every year since 1985, envelopes with letters prepared especially for this event, are gathered, loaded onto sleds and several dog teams haul it to Rosseau, Ontario, 17 km through the bush on groomed trails.
Teams gather and leave from the Village of Humphrey, Ontario, on Highway 141, to the cheers and good wishes from the many spectators and friends as the teams disappear in the bush on their way to the Rosseau Post Office to be received by the Post Mistress.
The sledvelopes are hand stamped, a very old method of cancelling mail. These "sledvelopes" have become collector items all over the world.
What a wonderful surprise for a child, or even adult, to receive mail which has travelled by dogsled, pulled by eager Siberian Huskies!
If you would like to experience the excitement of this event, come to meet the drivers and the dogs on Saturday, February 19th, 2011 in the Village of Humphrey. Enjoy a pancake breakfast with the group at the Humphrey Community Centre. There will be activities for the children and many opportunities to have pictures taken with the beautiful, friendly huskies.
To receive sledvelopes which travel by sled on Feb.19th, 2011:

We are currently not taking in any new Dogs at this time due to time and financial constrants. We will however; do anything we can to assist...
* Behavior Assessments.
* Behavior Modification Techniques.
* Trigger Identification and Avoidance.
* Target Training Schedules.
We hope that by assissting in this way, some of these Dogs will be able to "remain" in their current "Homes"... and to help "newly" adopted Dogs make a less stressful adjustment to their "New Homes"
Thank You all (Fostering, Transporting, Adopting, Donating) for "Caring"
"PETS AT THIS SHELTER"** To view information about a particular dog, simply click on that dogs name or picture from the list.
We can only speak for the behaviour's of those dogs listed on this website that have been assessed "Here" and by "Our Assessment Team"... The Dogs that are placed "By The Owners / Other Shelters" through this site are done so "WITHOUT" our assessment. Please be sure to ask if the dog you are interested in has physically been "Through our Rescue Program"

**Financial Assistance "Desperately" Needed to continue our efforts**
FUND RAISING: ..."PET PLAQUES" 100% of the proceeds from these plaques go directly to the care of the dogs.
FOSTER HOMES: In order to help these dogs to adjust to their change of environments and provide daily practice with their behaviour training, we are looking for people who have the ability to provide temporary homes for the dogs that are "Ready For Adoption". Please contact us if you feel you could assist us in this way. (Please be aware, there will be a process to being "accepted" as a suitable foster home, and this will be based on each particular dog and their needs... we hope no one will take offence, should they be turned down)
FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE: If you can not help by providing a temporary home to one of these dogs, but would still like to help out... Financial Donations can be made by cheque in the name of "SHEBA FOUNDATION" which go directly to the costs of Veterinarian expenses and will be applied against our constant "outstanding balance". Should you wish to assist in this way please post mark cheques to...

(and Thank You for caring).
Due to overwhelming time and financial constraints we are currently not taking in any new dogs at this time in order to reduce the number of dogs currently in this rescue. We would however, be more then happy to assist in any way we can, behaviour assessment and modification, training techniques, or just general questions. If you must find a "New Home" for your dog, please consider that up to 80 % of "FREE TO A GOOD HOME" adds fail, leaving the dog anxious and stressed. Being very particular with potential homes is the only way to ensure a good match for both your dog as well as the new family. Some points to consider?
1.) Insist the new family come (several) times to meet and bond with your dog prior to placement.
2.) If the new family has other dogs, they must also be introduced prior to placement (their first meeting should be at a location that is new to both dogs)
3.) Ensure that your dog is spayed/neutered prior to placing, as this helps to prevent him/her from being used for purposes other then companionship. It will also make them more adoptable if the new family does not have to incur this expense.
4.) Make it clear that you will be available to the new family for any questions or concerns they may have regarding the dog. Remember that, no matter how smooth you try to make the transition for the dog, they are going to be confused and may act in an uncharacteristic manner until they adjust to their new environment.

And of course...
Due to our increasing number of "Unadoptable" or "Special Adoption" dogs we are adding a sponsorship program to our rescue. If you would like to help in our efforts but do not have the room, or the time to physically adopt a dog, you can still help by sponsoring one of our "Long Term Dogs". This group consists of dogs that have serious behaviour, or abuse issues that will take extensive training and special handling to bring them around. Your sponsorship will help to care for these dogs during their stay with us. Realistically, some of these dogs will live out the remainder of their lives here with us... and of course this is no fault of their own. Again, if you are interested, please contact us for more information. Thank You.
