“A dog is the only thing on earth that loves you more than you love yourself.”

If you have adopted a dog, you know how grateful they are.  The dogs at Scooby, almost exclusively, came from dire situations.  Many have never known a warm touch or a soft bed.  We know that there dogs all over the world, and even those in your own towns that need to be adopted.  You have chosen to open your home to a Scooby dog, because you understand the difference in what they have endured.  You will forever change their life and continue to do so for the others who wait, as you share your dog’s story.  We believe it doesn’t matter where you’re dog came from, but the fact that you adopted them!

Although Canada is large, we do adopt within the whole country and we work closely with you to ensure the perfect dog  joins your family.

Your dog will be prepared at the shelter with the following:

All of this is documented in the European Pet Passport and validated by a licensed veterinarian.
