UPDATE: we recently diagnosed Lily with seizures. We are monitering her closely.


Lily was welcomed as a young puppy. She is completely blind. After 2 months, one of her eyes became severly infected. The eye was removed and she was back to her old self. For months, with Mama France, Lily learned to be confident and brave, using voice commands only. She loves to play in water, as one of her favorite outings was going to swim in the river in Wakefield. She loves the car rides too. She is now living in a foster home with a retired couple where she gets all the attention. She is spoiled as her foster mama makes her roast beef and gravy. 


Gordon arrived in May 2014. He was slowly dying from demodex mange, his organs were slowly shutting down from the parasite. It seemed as if Gordon had given up. We made him a special diet, bathing him with antiseptic shampoos and love every day, and with the constant supervision of vets, we slowly saw him get better. In less than 28 days, he made a dramatic improvement. A few months later, Gordon was placed in Blue's foster home. Gordon also needs constant medical supervision as his mange is a condition that he will never fully heal from. 

We're kind of a BIG deal

Un refuge plus GROS que nature !


Sydney was rescued July 25th 2013. her story is touching as this little girl was neglected beyond what any dog should have to endure. She could barely stand when she arrived , at 91 pounds. Sydney's front paw had been broken and left to heal without medical attention,  her paw was angled at 90 degrees. Sydney suffered from hip dysplasia, she was treated at the Montreal DMV hospital. Syd was in excruciating pain as every step caused her femur bone to rub on her hip and most of the bone was shattered. Two major surgeries later, she is running and going up stairs. Sydney will remain under our care for her lifetime. We need to monitor her orthopedic status as she grows older. He story has been featured on

Rabbits you say ?

COVID 19 came along and we decided to turn bad into good. This was an opportunity to help the Ottawa Humane Society in this urgent situation. We rescued 4 Giant Flemish Rabbits !! Dale, Cecil, Benny and Riley are all doing fine and making so much progress in our calm environement. They are all different in their personnalities and we will be working with them for a while longer before it is time for adoption as they were not socialized. We are working hard for them to have all they need in these difficult times, trying to limit our travelling and exposure for their needs in hay, food, litter supplies. Donations urgently needed.


This is why we need your help. We are responsible for these dogs for their lifetime. 


Dexter is our 100th dog rescued !! and to top it off, he is from Egypt..yes where the pyramids are !! Dexter flew more than a 16 hr flight to get to us. Once arrived at the Toronto airport, we drove for more than 5 hours to get him home. It was a battle trying to stay in the back seat, Dexter wanted the front seat for his royal self.  Dexter was loved by his family and wanted the best for him, and felt he needed more. We remain in contact with them because they love him as much as we do. Dexter is a master cuddler, just a big softie. He is fitting in and adopting well to Canadian weather. Dexter will remain with mama France as promised to his family. He is currently helping spread the word about dogs with Mama France as the main star in Facebook videos !

These animals are under long term medical care - NOT FOR ADOPTION
