*Please note that this dog has been a part of our life-saving transfer program. As a result, he/she has a slightly increased adoption fee to allow us to continue our transfer program and help animals from areas in need of assistance. The additional fee helps to fund things such as airfare, import fees, mileage etc - anything that would help get the dogs to our shelter, and to their forever family! By adopting a dog from KWSPHS, you're not only giving them a forever home, but helping us to pay-it-forward to the next one in need of assistance.

KWSPHS' Transfer Program

In an effort to assist other shelters and groups in maximizing our mutual life-saving capacity, KWSPHS brings in dogs from other organizations, both locally and internationally. In many circumstances, we work alongside other shelters to provide a larger, collective assistance to those groups in need of a helping hand. Our primary focus remains on the animals within our community, and when we have space, time and resources, we will look to provide assistance out of area.

**For more information on any behaviours stated above, please check out our behaviour fact sheet: https://kwsphumane.ca/BehavioursandDefinitions

***NOTE*** Please remember that animals are coming back from foster care to the centres for their meet and greets. They will be experiencing a new environment and meeting new people, which means they may not exhibit the same behaviours they did in their foster videos or while in foster care.
