Launched in 2001, Speaking of Dogs is a Toronto-based all breed dog rescue which is dedicated to educating and enlightening people about dogs through seminars, workshop forums, outreach and rescue. Their goal is to end cruelty, abandonment, mistreatment and homelessness of man’s best friend. The founders of Speaking of Dogs have 50 years of combined experience and knowledge. They have worked in animal shelters, veterinary clinics, rescue organizations and dog training facilities and are devoted to the welfare of dogs.
Speaking of Dogs Rescue has helped transport, foster, re-home and vet hundreds of dogs. All dogs entering the rescue arm are spayed or neutered, microchipped and have their medical needs attended to. The majority of dogs admitted into the rescue are from shelters or are puppy mill survivors. They also have a focus on senior dogs. Dogs are lovingly cared for in foster homes until a suitable placement is found.
The adoption process entails:
- a written application

After an initial interview, you will be asked to provide references and agree to a home check prior to the placement of a dog. An adoption contract must be signed and dated and an adoption fee is required. They reserve the right to deny an adoption applicant.
