*Do you have any fundraisers coming up that you want my viewers to know about?
We have adoptions events throughout the year and fundraising events ongoing on our website and Face Book page. Our next big fund raiser is our Calendar contest. People submit pictures of their dogs and the we post them. The ones that get the most donations get a page in our calendar for 2015. Then we have our Murder Mystery event in the Fall.

*What is the adoption process like?
Adoptions process is very easy. Our application is online on our website. An adoptions processor calls within a day or two and talks to the applicant about their expectations, needs and any restrictions with owning a dog. Then once we know which dogs are suitable, we arrange meetings with the dogs. Then the adopter decides to see more dogs or to adopt. A contract is drawn up, we ask for payment and they take the dog.

*What does your shelter/rescue hope to achieve in 2014 ?:
To save dogs. The more the better. A minimum of 600 dogs, although that would be low for us. Our best years have been at 1,000 dogs.

*Anything else you want to add?
Dogs are suffering and dying, we try to save as many as we can. We take dogs from Mexico, the US and from Alberta and other places in Canada. We take all sizes, all ages, all breeds of dogs. Every dog deserves a happy home.
