Dog Bless Rescue Partners is a Registered

 Non-profit animal rescue group based in

 Victoria, British Columbia, Canada.

 

Our mandate is to save small and medium sized

 dogs from American shelters where they are in

danger of being euthanized.

 

Dog Bless was founded in 2005 and to date has

rescued over 225 dogs.

 

Our dogs come to us in a variety of different ways.

 

Usually it starts with our partners in California

and Alabama visiting local shelters (Madera

County Shelter in California  and checking the

daily euthanasia lists.

 

Some shelters advertise the dogs when they are on

 their last day and these are the dogs we try to

 rescue.

 

 Some dogs come to us via other rescues such as

Rescue K911 in Camp Hill, Alabama.

 

 

We have developed good relationships with many

of the staff and volunteers at the shelters and often

they will contact us with a favourite dog to see

 ifwe can accept it into our program. 

While at the shelter our rescue coordinators will discuss the available dogs with the shelter 

 

manager and view those that have been there

the longest.

 

Some of the shelters house literally hundreds of

dogs.

 

We then assess which ones would be suitable for
 
our program.
 
 
The dogs are vaccinated, tested for parasites,
 
wormed
 

 

 Once the determination is made as to which dogs we

are taking, they are transported to a local

veterinarian  for a thorough examination and

 treatment (Dr. Dumars from Pet Medical inFresno

is shown Honey’s X-ray).

 

 

 The dogs are vaccinated, tested for parasites,
 wormed and scheduled for their spaying/

neutering .

 

 

 

The dogs see the vet regularly as they require health
 
certificates and check ups before shipping.
 
 
Prior to shipping, the dogs are fostered and during

that period they are assessed, bathed, treated for

fleas, groomed and given lots of love and attention.

 

 

 
Many go to doggie daycare for socialization and

 some receive training.

 

Once we have a good assessment of the animal we

 post the dogs’ pictures and biographies on our

website.

 

When there are three or four dogs ready for

 

transportation, arrangements are made through 

Air Canada (for the dogs from California) or

 Continental Airlines (for the dogs from Alabama).


We purchase airline kennels and supplies for the
Victoria or Vancouver where one of the Dog Bless

 

 board members meet them and welcomes them

 dogs’ journey and the dogs are flown to either

 

to Canada.
Pacific Coastal Airlines has been instrumental in

 

 Invariably we receive more than one application for

each dog and the home visit is a small part of the

 screening process.

 

Some dogs may not be appropriate for some

environments so it is important to make sure we

choose the right home for the dog.

 

Those submitting applications to adopt a dog will

 

receive a “home check” by one of the Dog Bless

Rescue Partner members.
