Welcome to Rocky Road Rescue!
Rocky Road Rescue is a not for profit all-breed, foster-based, volunteer-run dog rescue in the Ottawa area.
Our Response to Covid-19
These are uncertain times for all and the dogs in our care are no exception. We will continue to complete adoptions during the Covid-19 Pandemic with some adjustments to our procedures.
First, we must strongly encourage anyone applying to adopt a dog to consider your regular, Pre-Pandemic routine when considering adoption because although things have changed indefinitely, they will return to normal at some point, thankfully!!
We also encourage those of you who have adopted during this time to continue using your dog’s crate at periodic times throughout the day even when you are home. It will keep the thought of the crate fresh and “normal” in your dog’s regular routine when you return to work.
Finally, our meet and greet procedure has been updated to the following:
Potential adopters are asked to bring their own leash to the meet. The dog will be clipped to both the foster’s leash and the applicant’s leash. This will allow potential adopters the opportunity to walk the dog on their own, without any items transferring hands. It will also allow the foster and the adopter to maintain 2 meters of social distancing between themselves.
We thank you for your support. Please stay safe!
