Hi there! We adopted a puppy, "Bernie" from Paws for Love in April who is now 5 months old and named Rozzy. We just wanted to let you know that she is the light of our lives and we could not be happier with her. She brings joy to our family like we could never have imagined, is the calmest, sweetest, and most affectionate pup. She is having the best summer at camp and enjoys boat rides, kayaks, bikes and even going for floats on the lake. She loves her kitty sister, Luna and her human siblings so much. Our experience with Paws for Love has been amazing and we are still in touch with our foster family who raised Roz as a pup.
Little man is more amazing than we thought he could ever be. Tonight our hearts are full. Gus was definitely meant for us. His foster mom has done a beautiful job and we are so grateful. And praise to Paws for Love Dog Rescue in Thunder Bay, Ontario. Finding good homes for pets in need and not for profit. Thank you to everyone who has supported us and helped us on our journey!

We are from Southwestern Ontario, but wanted to make the drive for our beautiful rescue boy. We drove 32 hours round trip over the course of a weekend to pick up our new family member. We met with our puppy's foster mom, Robin Untinen and brought home our little Chandler. We have nothing but amazing things to say about the experience, and of Robin. The process was easy and straight forward, everyone was great at each step.
Our puppy, at 8 weeks was already paper trained (for the most part), knew how to walk on leash, and is the best little puppy for our 5-year-old.
I really credit Robin for all her efforts during the time she was fostering; without her special touch and care, he wouldn't be as amazing as he is.
You have some great people, and amazing dogs.
Please keep doing what you're doing
We are very in love with Chandler Bing, our new little furbaby.
thanks again for picking us for his forever home.
With lots of gratitude,

My name is Chace and my family adopted a rescue puppy we named him Tucker. He makes me happy when I am sad. My dog Astro passed away and Tucker makes me feel not so sad. He is funny and makes me laugh when he chases his tail. I like to snuggle with Tucker he makes me feel safe. I love Tucker so much and I am so happy to have him.
Hi! My name is Kyler and I adopted a puppy from Paws for Love. I asked my mom for a puppy for a long time, especially to keep me company during the pandemic we are in. She finally agreed and we filled out an application and were lucky enough that a supply teacher who had been to my school was fostering them. My mom says this made her feel more comfortable, knowing Mrs. White knew so much about animals. We went for a visit and fell in love with a pup named Riddles. We went home that night and discussed it as a family and all agreed we wanted to adopt her. On February 19th we picked her up and brought her home with us furever! Her new name is Nora. Some things she provides me with is keeping me active and motivating me to go outside. We bring her on walks through the fields to our neighbours and she gets to play with her fur friends Koda and Kitty. She is a pretty smart dog just like her Momma Truck. She has already learned how to sit, take a treat nice, shake a paw and to stay. We are so lucky to have Nora and are so grateful to Mrs. White and everyone at Paws for Love for giving us this opportunity to adopt Nora!
