Charity # 840502934RR0001



 We only adopt within a 4 hour radius from Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.

We have received the OK from the vet to find Rufus a forever home. There will be some conditions. We will start by a phone screening process before we accept applications. Do not email please.
So before you call: Rufus cannot go to a home with children- this is NOT negotiable. 
He has to be the only pet in the home. We would like experienced dog owners because of the fact that he has bitten before and exhibits behaviors that are true to his breed. He has made lots of progress but still needs guidance. He would thrive in a single human home but I know that is hard to find. He has a front leg injury and we will discuss his condition and long term prognosis with applicants. He is other wise healthy! Rufus is 1 year old, neutered, vaccinated and micro-chipped. The adoption donation will be $400.00. He is great in the car and really a big cuddle bug. Call Mama France 819-661-4726.




The first step :the application. We will not proceed to the home visit unless you are a candidate for the dog you are inquiring about. We want the process to be easy and pleasurable for everyone. Mama France will contact you via phone or email. 

We expect you to come meet the dog at our sanctuary if you can. Our dogs are not always in foster homes, they are here with us. It is a privilege to have this opportunity. Take the time to come meet us & the dogs !

We will then process your application, verify your references and ask you to welcome us for a home visit. We will bring the dog you want to adopt with us for the visit. It is here that we will decide to move forward with adoption.

If all goes well, you will then begin a 14 day trial with the dog. There is a contract to sign with us. The trial is to give the dog and your family time together to establish a connection. We will wait for your decision to make things official. VMR remains a ressource for the lifetime of the dog.


If you have read the dog's bio carefully and are considering adoption, please complete your information under 'adoption inquiry'' . We will then forward our application form for you to complete.


It is a privilege to adopt one of our sanctuary residents. Those who have had the pleasure of adopting from us can attest to our dedication.

All the dogs have received the best medical care, have been spayed-neutered, vaccinated including rabies and microchipped. History and medical papers will be provided upon adoption.
