Established in 2012, Sit With Me is an Ontario-based rescue who strongly believes that shelter dogs deserve better than being abandoned by those who are tasked with being responsible for them.
Whether it’s because the cute puppy grew up to be a 100 pound mouthy/jumpy maniac or because the little dog in your purse “just won’t listen,” we believe the difference between a “bad” dog and a “good” dog is simply the human at the end of the leash.
We aim to be that better human at the end of the leash by taking in deserving shelter dogs who pass our assessment and who show us that they want human companionship and are eager to learn.
We don’t place timelines on the lives of our dogs who show us progress and who aim to please – we commit to working with our dogs by showing them how to make better choices which will in turn help them become loving members of society. We sit with them and become the love and comfort in their lives they may not have experienced up until now.
We do not discriminate based on breed, age, medical background or current medical state. Those animals that need us most, those who are in jeopardy of losing their lives due to space or time in a shelter, will be the dogs we seek out for rescue. We strive to make shelter workers lives easier by not having to say goodbye to the dogs they care for.
No dog is born perfect is brought to the shelter perfect, but through training, structure, proper care and guidance, we strive to make each and every dog that comes into our program the best version of themselves that they can be. We sit with them, observing their needs as dogs and taking the time to get to know them, BEFORE we place them into forever homes.
Back in January Sit With Me Dog Rescue was forced to close their intake doors. With outstanding bills sitting at over $25,000 with 4 dogs medically managed but still in need of orthopedic surgeries as well as regular day-to-day vet care for dogs already in their care. As hard as it was to face such a debt, it was harder knowing that this could mean that the hard-luck dogs that we normally intake, will be left without options. Thanks to the support of many community members, the doors were re-opened and we are committed to raising the funds to continue to help saving dogs in need in the Ottawa area. Please consider supporting this year's tournament as a participant, sponsor, auction donor, or simply make a donation.
