Save Our Scruff is different than many other rescues because we do not select dogs based on their size or age or even their breed. A dog in need, is a dog in need. No matter if they need medical care or rehabilitation, we will provide them with the care they need before finding their forever home. 

Similarly, we do not select our adopters based on how many hours they work or whether they live on a multi-acre property over a condo. We know that, like amazing dogs, loving families come in all shapes and sizes.  Our goal is to find an adopter whose home, family and lifestyle are a perfect fit for a particular dog. But like.. your chances increase if you enjoy long walks on the beach and/or have a man bun.  


Save Our Scruff is dedicated to preventing overpopulation as well as stopping the cycle of abandonment/neglect while also providing aid/support due to these concerns. We provide care and rehabilitation for stra
Adopting a dog requires your time, patience and your kick-ass decision to stand up against dog overpopulation and homelessness.

While in foster care, the dogs are shown what love and care looks and feels like. Once you adopt your dog they will need time to adjust to your home and their new family. Over time, the dog will begin to trust you, and feel more supported. So remember to be patient and ease into introductions to new people, animals, places, and dog birthday parties. This will all help you and your dog have a healthy and successful relationship together. 

If you'd like to meet a scruff, please complete an Adoption Application. Next one of our Adoption Counsellors will call you as well as your references to discuss the potential adoption. Then, we will put you in touch with the foster of the dog you're interested in adopting to arrange a Meet & Greet. Once you are approved, the expectation is that you will be proceeding with the adoption and asked to sign the adoption contract as well as pay the adoption donation within 48 hours of receiving the congrats email.

If you have any questions about the adoption process, please contact
