This week’s AAW is Friendly Giants Dog Rescue .
Friendly Giants Dog Recue is a non-profit group based in Ottawa with foster homes throughout Ontario, that was created by a network of people that became aware of the growing need to provide a safe haven and to find loving adoptive forever homes for dogs in pounds and shelters that would otherwise be euthanized.
Their rescue (FGDR) tends to work with large and giant breed dogs but they also take in highly adoptable dogs from high kill shelters in Canada. Most are seized from horrendous situations, while others come in as strays who are often abused and neglected. They do not take in owner surrenders as there are too many dogs in dire need, awaiting euthanization in these shelters across North America.
All of their rescues are fully vetted, spayed or neutered and are placed in foster homes as they do not operate a shelter environment. Therefore, the dogs receive a lot of one-on-one attention and love to help them get over whatever bad experiences they may have had, to help them gain confidence, and to understand that not all humans are cruel. All the rescues are also assessed on temperament i.e. good with kids, cats dogs etc. in order to find the perfect forever home for them.
“All a rescue dog looks for is a warm place to sleep, food in their bellies, and a kind loving family to shower them with attention. There is nothing more rewarding than looking a rescue dog in the eyes and seeing how much they appreciate a kind face, warm heart and the unconditional love they give back, no matter what circumstances they have come from.“
