Who is 4 Legged Love?
4 Legged Love is an dog placement and dog adoption agency based in Toronto (Etobicoke), operating through out Southern Ontario. Our main focus is canine companions but we attempt to help out any companion pet. Our consultants facilitate dog owners by relocating their pet into the best possible new home. We offer a loving and home-like alternative for people who find themselves in the unfortunate circumstance of having to part with their beloved companion and can not bear to leave him/her in a pound or humane society with a fate unknown. As well, some of our dogs come to us through volunteers at pounds who can see that a dog deserves a second chance and their lives should not be cut short due to an irresponsible owner.
How Do We Work?
4 Legged Love associates have been placing dogs from our program for close to 10 years into permanent new homes. All dogs that enter our program stay with us in private homes until they have found permanent new homes. We have a detailed screening process for those looking to place a dog in our program as well as clients looking to adopt. Our screening process allows us to take the time with each potential adoptive family to better determine and understand what type of companion they are searching for. This helps ensure the best possible match with the type of dog that would most suit their household and life style. Each adoptive family must fill out one of our Applications and be approved before being able to adopt. All our adoptions are set up with pre approved families through appointment only. This again gives us one on one time to talk with each potential adopter to be sure that the best possible match has been made to suit both family and pet. All adopters MUST sign an adoption contract that states they will care for the dog through out the duration of its life, treat the animal with compassion and respect, and should they not be able to keep the dog they return it only to 4 Legged Love and never to a pound/shelter. Our mission is to ensure the most successful matches.
More About The Dogs…
4 Legged Love works with and helps all breeds of dogs, both pure and mixed breeds, small, medium or large. Our service includes a screening process that allows us to investigate and assess the dog’s current environment and temperament to ascertain whether the dog is adoptable through our service. Once screened and accepted into the 4 Legged Love program each dog is then individually assessed by one of our consultants to determine its temperament, health condition, physical condition, vices and specific needs if any. This enables us to effectively match the dog with potential adopters. You can see our current list of dogs for adoption here.
4 Legged Love reserves the right to refuse any dog or pet into its program we deem to be not adoptable. This may include dogs with costly/extensive/ongoing medical problems, dogs beyond what age we deem to be adoptable. Although we can not take these dogs into our program we do provide a service to help people and their pets in these situations.
4 Legged Love DOES NOT accept, for any reason any dogs with aggressive tendencies or dogs with a history of aggression. If it is failed to have been disclosed that a dog has had any previous aggressive tendencies (such as attempts to bite, even if no contact was made) 4 Legged Love will reserve the right to make its own decision as to the dog’s outcome.
