Desi was brought into rescue with his mother, Rior, and was sent to our friends in Toronto at The Animal Guardian Society. As of March 31st, 2018, Desi has been ADOPTED! As soon as Desi’s new family met him at his pet store visit, they knew it was love at first sight. He reminded his new mom of a dog she had had when she was a child. He has a new fur sister and two fun human siblings whom he loves dearly and he always is sure to greet them with lots of kisses. Wishing you and your family all the best, Desi.

In July of 2018, we received updated photos of Desi! He is looking so handsome and we couldn’t be happier for this handsome boy and his loving family.

Edgar was found abandoned and cold as a very young puppy in Manitoba, his eyes weren’t even fully opened yet. Luckily, we were able to step in and saved this sweet boy’s life.

Edgar settled in so well his foster home and was enjoyed by his foster parents, and foster siblings, a dog and a cat. He was the life of the party and gave them many fun memories. Special thanks to Edgar’s foster mom for dedicating so much time and energy to Edgar and The Animal Guardian Society in general, we are all so grateful for your hard work.

Edgar’s now in a family with a mom, dad, and new brother. Edgar the live-wire fits in perfectly with this active family. He is already so loved and spoiled rotten. His new family is going to be feeding Edgar a raw diet and will undoubtedly provide him all the TLC he needs to continue to grow and thrive.

On March 25th, 2018, Edgar was officially adopted! Congrats Edgar and have the best life!


This little sweetie was found cold and alone – thank you so much to our northern eyes for spotting this sweet baby and making sure he came safely into our care! He gave us quite the concern for the first couple of days, but after being de-wormed and looked over by a veterinarian, Elroy is flourishing under the loving care of one of SADN’s dedicated foster parents. Look out, Elroy, your foster mom is going to snuggle the daylights out of you!

Emsley (now Lucy)

This pretty girl is enjoying a new life with her loving family, who couldn’t be more happy to have her! Way to go, Lucy!


This small 14lb puppy came into SADN’s network with a large abscess on her head – with some care, she has healed nicely and is showing that she has the sweetest personality ever! Fae is extremely smart, laid back and caught on to potty training in no time.


This sweet boy was brought into Winnipeg after the vaccine clinic in Garden Hill First Nation. He had a terrible case of worms when he was found but recovered once put on medication. He has been a feisty, adorable little puppy from day one!

Forest of Love

Look at those little faces! Welcome Spruce, Ash, Maple, Pine, Birch, Willow, Cedar & Oak.


This handsome boy was found abandoned as a puppy on Red Sucker Lake First Nation, his paw was injured but he made a full recovery.

Hayden came into SADN’s care as a very friendly and social boy! He absolutely loves humans and we are so glad to have sent him off to our friends at Pound Dog Rescue in Toronto, to continue his journey. Huge thanks to everyone involved!

Hoku, Marina & Nahoa

On June 22, 2018, these three beautiful triplets made it into Winnipeg, and we couldn’t be happier to meet them! It was a tense couple of days due to delayed and cancelled flights, but with the determination of our northern friends, it was made sure that these dogs caught their flight and made it safely into Winnipeg.

Huge thanks also goes out to Jenn’s Furry Friends Rescue, for taking in our beautiful Marina, to LEASH Animal Welfare Society for taking Hoku & Nahoa, and also to everyone who assisted with transportation, temporary fostering and all other stepping-up done to ensure these beauties arrived into their respective foster homes!

Were it not for the wonderful lady who initially reported these dogs to the Provincial veterinary office, we would never have been able to bring them into care. It truly takes a village to rescue these dogs and cannot encourage people enough to keep reporting and abandoned and strayed animals found wandering – one day we will truly make these cases a thing of the past!

Hux and his sister were left abandoned at a house – luckily, the homeowner did contact SADN and we were able to rescue these two babies before they froze in the winter cold. Hux was bow-legged at the time of rescue due to malnutrition, but has since grown into a happy, healthy, bright boy. He was rescued with the help of volunteers from The Animal Guardian Society.

On March 25th, 2018, Hux officially found his forever home and is so loved already. He has a new mom and two human sisters who have all wanted a dog for a long time and had been searching for the right one. They visited him at his pet store visit and instantly fell in love.

Special thank you to Hux’s foster family for taking such good care of him, as well as all of the TAGS volunteers that played a part in his adoption process. Have the most amazing life sweet boy!


Whether Jack is a tiny puppy or a bear cub remains a debatable – either way, we are so happy to have been able to bring this cute little fellow into our care! He is one of our rescue’s summer faces of 2018.

This gentle mother came into SADN’s network with four puppies of approximately 3 weeks of age – she dedicated everything she had to caring for these puppies and as a result was extremely malnourished when she was rescued. With some good dewormer, endless bowls of food and some much-needed love, she regained her complete weight in just over one month! We are so happy to see her progress and as you can see from the picture above, Jonnie sure loves a good head scratch!

Huge thanks to our wonderful fosters and transporters who helped save this sweet family! Jonnie and her four puppies have headed to The Animal Guardian Society in Toronto to find their forever homes with our dedicated adopting rescue partners.


Probably the cutest face you’ve ever seen, right? Glad to have you, Joplin, and good luck finding your forever family! <3

Katie (now Aurora)

This darling pup was brought into our care in summer of 2018 – she had been found as a stray puppy, wandering alone. Thankfully we were able to scoop her up and transport her to one of our rescue partners in Ontario.

We are pleased to announce that she has been adopted by a loving family that includes a fur sibling (Galaxy) for her to play with! She’s growing up into a beautiful girl and we’re so happy for her. Her family has picked out a new name for her – she is now Aurora! <3

Thank you to her foster Brianne and family who worked hard to give Aurora the best start, including lots of work on puppy mouthing! Have an amazing life, Aurora! We love you!


Kavik was rescued as a tiny, odd-looking little puppy and was transported to one of our partnering rescues to find his forever home. In June of 2018, everyone here at SADN was delighted to receive an updated photo of sweet Kavik – now enjoying his new life with a wonderful loving family and human siblings to cuddle and play with!

Kavik was a foster failure (meaning he charmed his foster home so much, they simply had to keep him as their own!) and is a big, adorable lug full of love.

Good job, Kavik, and have a great life!


Kevin’s guardian angel was looking over him – he was found by random chance when passersby noticed a tiny head sticking out from the snow nearby a tree stump. When they investigated, they discovered her was stuck beneath the stump and was covered in snow. He was chipped out from the snow and brought home, where he was then washed up and given food and water. He was malnourished when he was found but is now thriving!


Beautiful puppy – rescued in late 2017 – early 2018.
