Happy ADOPTION Day PRESLEY!!
Thank you to Alison and Mark for fostering

A great big THANK YOU to Just Paws for rescuing the love of my life!! It’s such a match made in heaven!! This experience has been so positive right from the start. Everyone there was just so amazingly nice. My first call with Debbie and then Jennifer and foster mama Alison. It all happened so quickly and smoothly!! It’s so nice to know there are such good people out there in this crazy world right now. This little furball has brought me such joy I can’t even express the right words. After losing the first love of my life, Niko, I thought I could never care for another pet again. This little guy has brought such joy and happiness .If this isn’t a perfect match I don’t know what is. He’s so chilled and tail waggingly happy all the time and so attached to me already. I just love him! I have no shame in saying we slept together the very first night! 😊

I honestly can’t thank you enough for bringing this little guy into my life, he made this horrible dark world right now so much brighter and so much better.

I renamed him Presley, because I love the name, and I wanted him to have a brand new start and leave that other unloved world behind him….… and after all he did originate from Tennessee! In the words of the King…"I Can’t Help Falling in Love", "I Will Love Him Tender", he’s my "Teddy Bear”.

When oh when will it be my turn for a forever family? Ladies, I’m BIRDY and I’m definitely the one for you! Who wouldn’t want a snuggly playful girl like me?!?! I’m the perfect size of 20lbs. I’m 5 so I’ve passed all that puppy nonsense of not being housetrained. I won’t mess your house. I love to walk so you will always have an exercise partner. I’m a great snuggler and enjoy an evening of Netflix. So what if I’m a little shy of strangers and prefer women over men? Some people would say that just makes me smart. Just kidding! Actually, I am a very smart girl and once you win me over, I’m extremely devoted. Sound intriguing? Check out my bio for more information and apply for me today!

TREVOR now MACK has been ADOPTED!
Thank you to Elisa for fostering

We are so delighted to have Mack in our lives. He came for a visit with his foster, Elisa, and just stayed! He is such a gentle giant who has so much love to give. Mack loves to spend time with all of his humans during the day, but at night he only sleeps with the men of the house. Mack loves to go for big walks and explore with his three other Just Paws adoptees and has truly settled in with his new pack. Although Mack is around 11, he acts more like a 5 year old when he's outside. We are so grateful to have added Mack to our family. Thanks for slam dunk number 6 Just Paws!!!!!

PEPPER now BAILEY has been ADOPTED!
Thank you to Andy and Adele for fostering

We have had Pepper (now Bailey) for almost three weeks and we couldn’t be happier! She took a few days to learn that she could trust us and we'll need a lot of time, patience and love to get her to trust the world at large, but she has come so far in such a short period of time that we’re all so very proud of her. We all love playing in the yard, going for walks, cuddling with her on the couch and we can’t wait to start in on training with her as a family. Thanks, Just Paws! You made this happen and we will be forever grateful!

Happy ADOPTION Day MACK!
Thank you to Holly and her family for fostering.

I recently welcomed Mackie into my home, and it feels like he has always been a part of my family. After growing up with dogs and dog sitting for friends and family, I was finally able to welcome a dog into my home.

Mackie is a playful, affectionate, friendly guy who loves his daily walks around the block, and or the trails and loves his evening playdates with the other dogs in the condo courtyard.

Mackie gets so excited to see his friends and loves chasing them around the yard and playing fetch and tug of war. Mackie is also quite content to lie on his blanket and watch out the window and or join me on the couch for a quick cuddle before finding one of his favorite squeaky toys and cuddle it on his blanket.

Mackie has quickly settled into his new routine of using an elevator and having to go out on a leash with me to use the bathroom. On the elevator Mackie watches as I hit the floor button and gets excited as the doors open up and he is able to go outside to explore. With the warmer weather upon us, Mackie has shown an interest in swimming and playing in the water. I look forward to bringing him to the lake this summer.

I would like to thank Just Paws for allowing me the opportunity to adopt Mackie and a special thanks to Holly Philip and her family for fostering Mackie and being so helpful. Everyone who meets him says what a great dog he is and compliments on his personality and temperament. People tell me he won the lottery having me as his owner, but I can honestly say I won the lottery with him!!!

A dog is a man’s best friend and DENNIS has certainly found that in Don, his foster dad. He loves nothing more than to follow him around to see what he’s doing. He makes a great supervisor!
DENNIS requires a child free home and a fenced in yard where he can roam freely. He enjoys his walks but has issues meeting others while on leash so we do want a family for him that will be patient and help him be the best boy he can be.

GIRLY now KALAFIA has been ADOPTED!
Thank you to Stephanie and her family for fostering

It was always our dream to adopt a puppy into our family. We originally thought we wanted a puppy under 6 months old but when we saw Kalafia (1 of the 144 rescues from Jamaica) it was love at first sight! She was a little shy at first but soon her affectionate and bubbly personality had us laughing and our hearts filled with joy.
From the moment we brought Kalafia home, we knew it was one of the best decisions we ever made. She fit right into our family, almost like she had always been here.

The rest of our family and friends who have met our Kalafia have fallen in love with her affectionate ways. Nothing like coming home to be greeted excitedly at the door with wags and kisses.
As first-time pet owners, adopting an older dog was the best choice for our family. We are so happy and filled with love for the new family addition. Thanks, Just Paws and Stephenie for the incredible work you do in helping Kalafia finding her forever home with us.

03/27/2021

To make a long story short, NORMA now MARNEY was adopted a month ago and returned because the other dog in the home was just not accepting her.
RIELLY’S family has been in contact with us since last year wanting to know how their boys mama was doing after her heart worm treatment and wanted to arrange a time for mother and son to meet again.
When we found out NORMA was being returned , it only made perfect sense to contact Grace to let her know. Well, as we can all see, these two couldn’t be happier to be reunited and neither could we!
Happy ADOPTION Day MARNEY!!

We have adopted Rielly about 6 months ago from JustPaws, and he was the best gift to us in 2020. Not only could we provide love and a new home to a once abandoned dog, but he has been such a sweet boy to our family and lights up our lives since becoming part of our family. Therefore when we heard that Norma (now Marney), who is Rielly's birth mom, was also available to be adopted, we immediately considered it. To be honest, it wasn't our plan to have another dog. The timing was not in our original plan at all, and there's lots to consider in terms of time management and finance. But then we thought about how Marney could be bounced around, and after everything she's already gone through, if there is something we can do in her life to bring a smile to her we thought it was worth a try. Since bringing Marney home we knew it was the right decision from the get-go. Rielly and Marney are SO HAPPY to find each other again; to be reunited in life. I see them playing with each other all the time, like with no other dogs, and Rielly takes every chance to kiss and lick Marney. Marney has fit in the family so nicely from day 1, and both of them are the lowest maintenance dogs we have ever seen. We're just so glad we can make a positive change for these once abandoned angels, and they have been a true blessing to our lives. We will definitely adopt again in the future. Thank you Rielly and Marney, and thank you JustPaws!

••Experienced Adopters Only••

Bonjour! My name is COZY and have come from Quebec. I was surrendered to kill shelter by an owner who didn’t take very good care of me. Just Paws thankfully rescued me and promised me a loving forever home. As you can see from my pictures, I am very cute. I have recently had all my vetting done, and I have been neutered (yikes that was not fun!).

I am young and pretty much still a puppy who has a lot to learn. I am very energetic and love to play, especially fetch. I do love being outside in the backyard so I would need a house that is fenced in. I would not be suited to an apartment (especially when I hear any strange loud noises as I will bark). I am ok walking and do enjoy it once I adjusted to my family putting a leash on me. My house training is still ongoing, but I am improving every day, especially since I have been neutered and don’t seem to want to mark.

I would be best suited in a quiet home with no more than two adults only (no children). My Foster Dad has not noticed much shedding. I’m good in my crate and I like to have one as it is my safe space -- my new home will have to allow me to have a crate (but you can leave the door open so I can come and go). I have been left alone for a short time and seem to be OK – I scratch at the door when my Foster Dad leaves but then I go into my crate and wait for him. I sleep well at night and do like to be close to my Foster Dad. I may like having another small low-key dog in my forever home whom I can learn from, but it is not a necessity.

Because of how my first home was, I do have trust and fear issues. It takes me some time to warm up to strangers and I can be a nervous around them at first. I’m going to need a very patient family who is willing to give me the love and patience to learn that people are great. I did not seem to get much socialization in my first home. I am afraid and can nip when I see hands coming towards me, although I am getting much better at trusting those hands but it does take several days for me to know all is good. I am currently on some medication to help me with my anxiety. I am going to need a very experienced family who can help me through this.

Hey, I am still a puppy, so I have lots of time to learn if you are wiling to put in the time with me. I am now being give a medication to help me with my fears and you know what, it has really helped and I’m really started to feel better towards life.

So, what do you all think about me? Do I sound like the furry family member you would like to join your family? If so, please put in an application for me at www.justpawsanimalrescue.com as I really do want to find my forever home!

Happy ADOPTION Day BRANDON now JEDIDIAH!
Thank you to Christine and her family for fostering

We recently welcomed Jedidiah into our family and it is like he has always been here. Our sister and nieces have been fostering dogs for Just Paws for quite some time now, so we knew that Just Paws is a very trusting, caring and professional organization!
Jedidiah is a playful, goofy and friendly little fellow! Every member of the family is drawn in by his charm and sweet disposition. He is always ready for cuddle time. Snuggles with Jedidiah melt all of our cares and worries away while providing us with unconditional love and Zen!
Thank-you so much to all of the wonderful volunteers at Just Paws for the endless happy stories that you are creating!"

Happy ADOPTION Day KODA!
Thank you to Andrea for fostering!

We are super excited to adopt Koda (formerly Sophie)! We have been looking to adopt a dog for quite some time and we could not have asked for a better addition to our family than Koda! We were apprehensive as we have a cat and dog, but Koda has shown patients, curiosity and love to both our resident dog and cat! She gets along so well with her animal and human family, it is like she was family all along. She has taken over the couch, the bed, our house and our hearts. She is such a smart, playful, energetic, loving and cuddly dog. She absolutely loves all of her toys and her favourite past time is watching and following the cat (they will be great friends one day!). We cannot wait to see what the future has instore for us - let the adventures begin!

We want to thank Just Paws for being open and helpful in bringing Koda into our life. The matching process went really well and we were so lucky to be matched with her right off the bat. The foster and volunteers have been very helpful and attentive throughout the process and you can see the amount of trust and love this rescue has for their animals.

Looking forward to completing the process with you!

Thank you,
Sarah and Justin

KAYLA now DUMPLING has been ADOPTED!
Thank you to Mark and Alison for fostering!

Almost as soon as we introduced our two adopted cats Chub Chub and Jinora to each other, we knew that we wanted to adopt a dog to complete our little family. The moody girls timidly welcoming their new sister Dumpling into the fold. Dumpling's sweet and relaxed demeanour has made her an excellent sister to the cats and a perfect first dog for her moms to get together.

We are already a family who spends our mornings in bed with a cup of coffee, and now having three fur balls snuggle up at the foot of our bed makes it all the more comfortable. Dumpling is happy to sit and watch TV with us on the couch and snuggle up next to us while we are reading, which is exactly the temperament we were looking for; we love to hear her gently snoring as she naps next to us during our workday.

Already in the past week, her excitement to get outside and take a walk around the block has made her moms more active and brought more fresh air into their days. She is such a friendly dog that everyone on the street, in the pet store and in the dog parks wants to give her a little rub and more than once she has been called a precious little cloud by both her parents and new friends. We have made friends with other dog owners in our building and down the street, which is all thanks to our outgoing new family member.

Adopting an older dog was absolutely the right choice for our family, and we are so happy to receive all the love that this fluffball has to offer.

And attached are some of the pictures we've taken in the past week!

Hello Just a little update on our George (Kevin) coming up to two year since we adopted this Beautiful little Boy. George is not a fan of getting his pictures taken but lots of treats did the trick! Happy New Year! 🐶
Neighbours of mine lost their rescue Toby over the weekend. He was the cutest little terrier mix, and I will miss him following his dad across our court to visit. They have donated quite a bit of food to Just Paws in his honour. Fly high, Toby
Hi friends, I am looking for a Lab for my Mother and Father in law who live on a farm property near Frankford. They are both home full time and have always had labs and are very familiar with the breed. They are elderly so an adult dog would be best. They have their heart set on a lab as that is what they are used to. Can you please let me know if one comes available. I hear that people who purchased dogs during the height of covid are now having 2nd thoughts and taking their pets to shelters. So just checking with you. Thanks so much, Sandy Patrick Orillia On 705 329 0021
We adopted Bella through Just Paws last December. She is a sweet, lovely cuddly, girl who has come from what must have been a very tough life in Ohio. We only know this through quirks in her personality and some evidence of injuries she must have suffered at some point. But she has settled in nicely and at 9 years of age we were hoping she would be able to spend a few more care free years with us. Unfortunately, Bella has been diagnosed with Thyroid cancer that she has apparently had for some years and we just received an obscene quote of $10,000 for her needed surgery. We have started a GoFundMe page to assist in the cost of not only Bella's Surgery but hopefully to try and help others like Bella facing the exorbidant cost of Vetrinary Cancer treatment .
