THANK YOU for coming to Keeshond Rescue of Ontario. If we have dogs available or know of Keesies being fostered through related rescue groups, we will be happy to link you up. But if that doesn't connect for you, we will work WITH you to find either a puppy or an adult placement from a reputable breeder. While we all know that there are backyard breeders and, worse, puppy mills who produce Keeshonden as commercial investment, we are grateful that you have come to us first.

It is a mandate for all Keeshond lovers to put an end to puppy-mills for the benefit of our beautiful breed.

Please help us do that.

Keeshond Rescue of Ontario is in touch with many fine Keeshond breeders as well as with fellow rescue groups and we will do our best to find you a dog.

Keeshond Rescue of Ontario's Mission Statement

Who Are We?

Keeshond Rescue of Ontario is a volunteer group of Keeshond lovers, dedicated to ensuring that any abandoned or surrendered Keeshond in Ontario will be rescued and cared for in a responsible manner. This will include every effort at locating owners of dogs who have been stolen or lost, and at identifying and contacting breeders of dogs in our care.

What Do We Do?

Keeshond Rescue of Ontario undertakes to provide transportation, medical treatment appropriate to those dogs who come into KRO rescue, private home fostering for case-by-case assessment, and a careful matching of the needs of each rescue to those of approved adoptive owners.

What Do We Believe In?

Keeshond Rescue of Ontario is dedicated to the promotion of knowledge about the Keeshond breed, and of education for prospective adoptive owners as to the needs of the re-homed rescue dog. We are committed to the coordination of fund-raising efforts to support our rescue activities. We support Canadian animal welfare initiatives.
