Puppy Mill Airedales

Thanks to all the support for these wonderful animals, the mill dogs have all been adopted.  Stay tuned for future blog posts on their new lives!

In September Humane Society International (HSI) was involved in the largest puppy mill bust in Canada.  You can read  about it here: http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/montreal/story/2011/09/17/quebec-puppy-mill-raid.html

The courts ruled on this case Thursday November 24. The owner has been charged and the dogs were handed over to HSI for adoption.  There were indeed Airedales taken in the raid and Airedale rescue has been on the ground working hard to get these dogs to a better place.  As of this weekend we did get custody of the Airedales and given the situation they were in, these dogs are in great shape and seem to have lovely temperaments.  A special shout out goes to our dedicated volunteers who picked up the dogs and are fostering them.  A special thanks goes to Sophia Grabowiecka who was in the facility volunteering with HSI and worked as the contact between Airedale rescue and HSI.  We wouldn’t have these dogs in our care if it wasn’t for the kindness and caring of these wonderful volunteers!  Thank You!

Currently we are desperate to find a foster home in or near the Ottawa area for one young male who is still waiting to be picked up.  Can you please help? 

If you are looking to adopt an Airedale we should have two females and a male available for adoption in the next week or two.  Check back soon for more info and pictures.

Along with my two furkids we often have foster 'dales come and spend some time with us while they are waiting for their forever homes.

  1. Hi there!

    I read and heard about this story and it’s tragic what has happened to all those animals. I put my application in to adopt a dog, I know we said in the new year but we would open our home sooner.

    Have a wonderful holiday.


  2. I too have filled out an application with Airecanada a few months ago and I’m eagerly waiting to adopt a precious Airedale.
    Our beautiful Bailey passed with Cancer in May and we are devastated. We want to open our hearts and home again to all the Airedale fun and personality that we so desperately miss.
    I hope you will consider us
    Warm regards
    Leslie Jack
