Sit with Me Shelter Dog Rescue presents
Love Notes from our Foster Dogs: Go Sens Go!

Local all-breed rescue cheers on the Ottawa Senators as they play Game 6 tonight

Ottawa, ON: Sit with Me Shelter Dog Rescue (SWM), a registered non-profit rescuing dogs in Ontario and Quebec, announce the release of a video on YouTube of rescue dogs cheering on the Ottawa Senators as they play Game 6 against the Pittsburgh Penguins. The video, Love Notes from our Foster Dogs, features SWM dogs dressed up in their best Sens gear and alternately supporting the Sens and teasing the Penguins. The video shows off adoptable and soon-to-be adoptable dogs, thanks to a photoshoot generously donated by Sarah O’Neill Photography.

The video can be found here:

“I can’t hear you! Make some noise for our Sens!” says Tagg, a deaf white dog with black spots also wearing a red jersey. Tagg was bought and sold on kijiji then dropped off at the shelter all before he was 8 weeks old. He is not quite available for adoption but will be looking for a home free of breed-specific legislation due to his breed.

“Remember: soft dumps in the corner, boys!” says Mica, a lanky young hound-mix wearing her #68 Hoffman jersey. Mica is available for adoption, looking for an active and engaging home.

“It’s Pittsburgh that needs a rescue!” says Nate, a small white dog in a red jersey. Nate is a senior dog with an autoimmune disease who is not yet available for adoption while he recovers from medical treatment.

Sit with Me Shelter Dog Rescue is an all-breed foster-based rescue helping dogs in Ontario and Quebec. A registered non-profit established in 2012, we are dedicated to giving the best possible care to shelter dogs who need the love, support, and the structure of a foster home to thrive. We prioritize the dogs who need us the most: those who are in danger of losing their lives due to lack of space or shelter resources. We don’t discriminate based on medical status, age, breed, or past experiences. We sit with them, first at the shelter and then in our homes, observing their needs before placing them in their forever home. With our network of 150 volunteers, we have over 100 dogs in care and have saved over 700 dogs.
