Happy ADOPTION Day MINNIE!

Thank you to Elyse and her family for fostering

We didn’t think we needed another dog until we met Minnie! She’s a sweet miniature pincher mix. We already have a 16-year-old miniature pincher named Phoebe And a 10-year-old ridge back mix Jet. We rescued Jet when he was a puppy And rescued phoebe when she was nine. Minnie has fit in so well with our dogs. Jet is very playful so that has been great and Phoebe is a super active 16 year old. Minnie has been great with the kids, loves to play ball and fetch with them. She is so smart we can’t wait to teach her some new tricks!
So happy we found her and thank you to Just Paws and especially Elyse for making her transition so seamless.

A donation was made by Bonnie Bader Lee to Just Paws Animal Rescue in memory of her son, Jonathan Lee, who passed away 30 years ago on October 31st, 1990 at the age of 12. Jon loved animals and would have really enjoyed playing with his canine nephew, Finnley, who was rescued by Just Paws from a snowbank in Thunder Bay, brought to Toronto and adopted by Jon’s sister’s family, Kathryn, Eren, Kailey and Dylan Howell. Bonnie thanked Just Paws for the wonderful work they do in uniting these beautiful puppies with their forever families.

HOGAN has been ADOPTED!!
Thank you to Hyla and Drew for fostering

Hogan, now Camilo, is one super sweet doggie. While he is really tiny he is such a special character. He loves giving people and cats kisses. Super sweet, loves to cuddle in your arms. He also builds these little tunnels into blankets and enjoys the fort. Just Paws did an amazing job with their application process, screening and final adoption. Kudos to them for all their hard work and dedication. A special thanks to his foster mom who truly has been so supportive throughout his transition to my home. Thank you.

GRIFFIN is in search of his forever home and needs everyone’s help so please SHARE this post.

Hello everyone! I'm GRIFFIN, the shepherd boy. I'm about 7 years old and looking for a forever home. Just because I'm older doesn't mean that I'm slowing down tho! My inner child still comes out and I love chasing my tail and my ball. I enjoy running around and playing with my four-legged friends, off-leash.

I can be a bit unsure when I meet new people and dogs, but I just need a little time to warm up, and then we're best buds. I'm great friends with all my neighbours now! I also love going for my daily walk and playtime.

My ideal home will be one with a yard to run and fetch in, or just relax outside for along as you will let me (no condos for me, please). I'm not just a handsome face, I'm a very quick learner, especially when treats are involved.

I really need someone who understands dogs and our language. Cause I'm a Sheppard-x and love to talk! I can't wait to meet my new family who will be my best buddies forever and ever and ever!

BILOU has been ADOPTED!
Thank you to MyMy for fostering !

We feel so blessed to have found Bilou. It took such a short time for him to become part of our family. He is such a loving dog! He wants nothing more than to spend time with his humans! He and his adopted brother, Burton, have become good friends and they have been enjoying many hours of walks and play time outdoors in Muskoka.

Happy ADOPTION Day KENZO!
Thank you to David for fostering!

When my Granddaughter Mia sent me Kenzo’s picture it was Love at first sight.
I had told my Granddaughter that I was ready to start looking and she found Kenzo ,sent the picture to me and the rest is history and Happiness!

Everyone just wanted the best for Kenzo and all these wonderful people knew and understood his needs. Each person I spoke with was helpful and gave me good information to help me go forward. I was able have a good understanding of him before I even visited him.

You have all been so helpful ,informative and made the process so smooth and the best part....he loves and trust me beyond anything I could have ever expected.
His foster Daddy Dave also deserves a great deal of praise because of the loving environment Kenzo had with him ,my buddy moved forward quickly to becoming my forever pet...or in this case ...King of my castle ....
Special thanks to Marie who did a home visit quickly and now is a friend.
Janice who checked in with me for updates and warm ,kind and helpful emails
Deb who patiently got the ball rolling and was able to help me with computer forms...lol
I just can honestly say everyone I came in contact with through Just Paws Animal Rescue had the very best intentions. I am so impressed with you ALL.
And within a very short time here I am happily enjoying Kenzo ...well my family want to call him Tiki...he adjusted really quickly to that too.
If I forgot to mention anyone just know you ALL do amazing work...each of you touched me with your caring attitudes.
And lastly here are a few pics of love and happiness that you all took part in ...
My appreciation and thanks,
Sandra And cheeky Tiki my best buddy

PAUL has been ADOPTED!
Thank you to Kathleen and a David for fostering

Paul (who we have now named Rico) is the third rescue dog we have adopted over the years. Our first was a pug (Abby) who passed away at the age of 14, and our second was a beagle (Cooper) who is now 10 – so it seems appropriate that Rico is a puggle (beagle/pug mix). Rico has fit right in with our family – alternating between playful burst of puppy energy and quiet cuddle time. His tail is constantly wagging, he loves to give puppy kisses, and he seems equally happy playing endless games of fetch or curling up on our laps on the couch, and he and Cooper hit it off right away – giving Cooper the canine companionship he had missed since Abby’s passing, and even inspiring Cooper to the occasional puppy-like play burst.

Just Paws’ adoption process was very thorough and beneficial for both the dog and ourselves. We wanted to make sure Rico would be a good fit for our family and get along well with Cooper, and Just Paws’ approach allowed us to become comfortable and confident that he was the right dog for us.

Happy ADOPTION Day ROMEO!
Thank you to Kara and her family for fostering

"Well it has been a whirlwind! As soon as we saw Romeo on Just Paws we knew we had to bring him home to our family.

Our initial step was a thorough application process to make sure that we were serious (we were) and help Just Paws narrow down to the very perfect family (we hoped). Next they gave us a call, and contacted the various references we listed. Next came a few calls and a virtual home visit (due ot Covid) checking out all the yard space, and home space and of course talking to us as a family to really get to know us beforehand.

Once we knew that we were a fit we scheduled a visit a couple hours away. It took no less than 2 minutes for us to want to take Romy back home with us! He was VERY excited on the drive home and we kept the windows to make him even happier. We did the normal introductions with his new brother 17 pound Marky the Shih Tzu. Marky took a little while to get used to all the ENERGY of the new puppy. It all works out when we are on the few walks everyday.

Romy is a lovable, goofy, playful puppy who has a little bit of learning to do but all in good time. We look forward to lots of great times together! "

Wishing everyone a HAPPY THANKSGIVING.
Today we give thanks for the health and happiness to all the dogs we have been able to help thanks to you, our supporters, fosters, adopters and our wonderful team of volunteers. Sometimes it’s not just about helping the healthy dogs, today, for us we want to help the less fortunate which is why we would like to introduce you to 3 dogs needing our help. 3 loving dogs who have hit a bump in the road to a loving home. Please meet NORMA (Norman, who was recently adopted, Momma, and has the same calm, loving temperament as her son.) KARINE, and ALBERT. All 3 were recently diagnosed with Heartworm, which can be a death sentence if not treated. It is highly treatable and also did not have to happen if they had been on Heartworm prevention. They deserve a chance and we would like to give them that chance. The treatment is not cheap but we are hopeful that with your support, we can do this! Look at their faces, they don’t know that their time could be cut short, they just want to be loved the way pets are supposed to be. If you would like to be a part of their journey to a healthy happy ending, please donate, any amount will help them! Let’s make this Thanksgiving their best ever and get them started on their treatment, get them cured, and get them their forever home.

Happy ADOPTION Day MOOSE!
Thank you to Karen and her family for fostering

Moose is such a great addition to the clan. He is settling into farm life quickly. It took him some time to figure out hay bales, but he is now good at playing on them. He loves to play with a soccer ball and go for big walks. His favourite thing is hanging out with his siblings on the front lawn. Somehow he has managed to wiggle his way into Alex’s heart and bed. Moose is so affectionate and loving and we are very fortunate to have him in our lives.
Thanks Just Paws for our 4th senior adoption from you. ❤️

NORMAN now RIELLY has been ADOPTED!!

Thank you to Jodi and her family for fostering

Rielly has been such a sweetheart and a very good boy from day 1. We hear that he's been through a lot from being abandoned to moving to the shelter , the long drives from Tennessee then to Canada , but he has been great with everyone in our family since day 1. He loves to hangout with us, we have gone on long walks through parks around the neighborhood, beach broadwalks, and busy streets in downtown Toronto. He joins us for short runs, and it brings such joy to our hearts when we see him running so happily and freely besides us. He also chills beside us when we sit down for a movie, and sleeps through the night every night in his own bed beside ours. Rielly is our 1st rescue and we had our doubts about what it would take to bring home an animal that has been through so much in the past, but, Reilly has been so sweet, so low maintenance, and nothing beats seeing a dog that has an unhappy past wiggling his tail when he sees us every morning or everytime we come home. We're grateful for the chance to give Rielly a 2nd opportunity at finding a loving forever home
**Want to grant a gold medal to every single one of you heros. You all are amazing and have a huge heart. May you all be blessed from giving all these animals love and 2nd chance.

Happy ADOPTION Day THOR!
Thank you to his amazing foster family and to all the ones who saved him in Jamaica

---------------------------
We are beyond delighted to have Thor in our family! He's a sweet, cuddly, curious, energetic and loving boy and even though we've only had him for 10 days we are madly in love. It's such a pleasure to see him gaining confidence day by day. He was Initially fearful of new people and situations but with proper introductions he's playing with neighbourhood dogs and shyly accepting treats from their humans. We're looking forward to getting to know Thor over time as his personality blossoms.
Thank you, Just Paws for professionalism, excellent communications and mentorship.
Thank you, Anja and Tony for giving Thor a loving start in Canada and for all the time you took to help Thor gently transition from your home to ours. And thank you to the multitude of volunteers whose work brought this wonderful fur ball into our lives.

Hello I am the mighty KENZO! No, not really mighty, but I am just 10lbs. of cuteness. Come on look at those pictures of me, don’t you agree?! I am about 11 months old and I was surrendered to a kill shelter, but I am so grateful and happy Just Paws saved me. They promised me they would find me the perfect forever home for a little guy like me.

I am very playful and love to play with my tug and ball toys – really like to chase the ball. I have bonded quickly with my Foster Dad and follow him everywhere – he is my best buddy. I am a typical chihuahua personality -- feisty and sometimes vocal when people come to the house, or my Dad leaves me alone (but I eventually settle). My first family who surrendered me did not do much socialization or training with me so as a result I can be nippy and fearful. I know with the right family who is wiling to invest in training, patience, and lots of love so I feel secure, I will be even more wonderful than I am now. To help me overcome my anxiety and fearfulness at times, I have now been put on helpful medication and starting to feel much better. I also got neutered only a few weeks ago, so they say it will help me, too.

I walk very well on the leash (and don’t pay much attention to others), plus I do love my walks. I would do best in a adult home with no children. NO CONDOS for me. I would love a fenced in yard where I can run around or just lay down with my family outside. I do love to cuddle. I love my chew toys! I am OK in a crate with the door open but I prefer to sleep close to my human. I love my treats so that will help me with training. My house training is coming along quite nicely.

My Foster Dad says this about me: “ Kenzo is a sweet young boy who loves to be with his people. He doesn’t take well to people coming to the house, but after a few minutes he will settle once he realizes all is good. He loves to play but when he gets excited can sometimes nip (but it is gentle). He will need training. He is lovable. He understands gentle and no. Kenzo loves his car rides, so no problems at all with him in the car. We take walks with the neighbour and their dog and all is good – he is quiet and even with lots of people around he has been very good on the walks. He will need a family who is willing to put in the time to work with him, and who are familiar with chihuahuas. There is nothing he has done that would deserve him to be dumped in a kill shelter by irresponsible owners. Kenzo will make a great addition to the right family”.

I’m hoping you like what you have read about me and are ready to put in the application for me. I am patiently waiting for my new family so hoping it is you!

Happy ADOPTION Day LILY!!

Here is a blurb on our experience adopting Lily (previously know as Zoey) along with some super-cute pictures.

Our experience adopting Zoey from Just Paws Animal Rescue has been exceptional. We have adopted rescue dogs in the past and have never received the support and communication that we have when dealing with Just Paws Animal Rescue. Caitlin, (Zoey's foster mom) has gone above and beyond to answer all our questions and to help transition Zoey into our family. Caitlin spent considerable time with us while we visited Zoey and provided us with ample information as well as a written list of Zoey's likes and dislikes, toy and activity preferences and had already started to train Zoey.
Zoey is a lovely dog and gets along well with our other dog, Stanley. We are thrilled to have her in our family and highly recommend Just Paws Animal Rescue!

Address

Toronto, ON

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 .
