Rescue Mutt Monday - Lola

Why You Should Rescue a Dog?

There are many great reasons for adopting a rescue.  Here are a couple!

1. When you adopt a rescue, you are giving a loving dog a new life. 

Rescue dogs usually come from high-kill shelters, after having been abandoned by their families, or living as strays. 

Rescuing a dog gives them the opportunity for a new, loving life with your family.

2. There is nothing quite like the love of a rescue dog. 

Rescues are eager to find a family that fits.  They long for the love and companionship that comes with adoption.

Because of this, there is a special kind of love and connection between adopters and their rescues.  

They understand all too well what life is like without a loving family and warm bed, and so they appreciate it that much more when they have it. 

This Weeks Rescue

This week's featured rescue, Lola, is from Fetch & Releash

Fetch & Releash is a 100% volunteer-run dog rescue founded in 2016.

Their dogs come from a variety of different backgrounds, and their work involves partnerships with local and international shelters and pounds.

At Fetch & Releash, their mission is to rescue and re-home as many dogs as possible, regardless of their age, breed, background, health and/or behavioural issues.

Their goal is to find each of their rescued dogs the loving forever-home they deserve.

Meet Lola

Her name was Lola, she was a show girl!

It is hard to believe that the beautiful Lola has been waiting a year for her forever home!

Lola is a four and a half year old German Shepherd/Rottweiler mix. She knows all of her basic commands, loves long car rides, and splashing around in a lake! She's the perfect girl to add to your weekends at the cottage! 

Lola loves to run and would be a great companion and motivator for someone who wants to make a commitment to their fitness goals rain or shine! What's better than a wagging tail for some motivation?

Lola is medium energy and would thrive in a home with a yard, older children, and no other pets.
