About Furever.ca, A Network of Pet Lovers and Dog Rescue
Furever Network is a community of pet lovers engaged in bringing awareness to dog adoption as a means of addressing the global issue of dog overpopulation, neglect, abuse, and abandonment. We do this by publishing and broadcasting stories about the front line workers who rescue and re-home dogs into loving furever homes, and and information supporting pet lovers in the care of their fur families.
Rescues, adoption organizations and shelters play an invaluable role in addressing dog overpopulation, and yet they are under-appreciated. Dog Rescue organizations are under particular challenge because they are run by volunteers whose every available minute is often dedicated to the work of actually saving and re-homing the animals themselves. We know this for a fact, because we too are members of dog rescue groups, volunteer initiatives, dog adoption groups and work on the front lines of dog rescue. We’ve been there, we’re still there, and we’re committed to helping our member dog rescues in Canada and the United States do their best possible work.
Giving Back through Photography and Video
We not only publish photos, video and stories about dog rescue, we make them! Judith Keenan, Founder and Producer is available to photograph dogs in need while they are in foster care, to enhance adoption profiles and create the best possible opportunities for adoption.
If you are a rescue group with a dog rescue story unfolding, Judith and her Furever video team are available to shoot footage and make mini-documentaries to help your rescue group secure the visibility you need.
Whether its a fundraising event, a full on breed specific awareness day, an adoption meet and greet, or part of a big dog festival, we are there with camera in hand to help with photos and video with our member rescue groups!
Pet Lovers United
How can we help? At Furever Network, we believe that combining the resources, knowledge and passion of individual dog rescue groups can amplify the message, and help reach the general public in a way that single groups working alone may find difficult.
Opt to Adopt a Dog
Furever wants to help normalize the idea of dogs from rescues or shelters are just as desirable as dogs merchandised by backyard breeders, puppy millers and pet store owners who sell live animals. In fact, for many families, opting to adopt a dog could be a superior choice for all the reasons presented in the stories here on Furever Network.

A Documentary Television Series
From rescue to rehab to re-home – every dog deserves a second chance for their perfect Furever Home.
Furever Home collects the heartwarming and inspirational tales of the fortunate pets that have been given a shot at a second chance. In each episode, our Furever Home hero is introduced with a brief story of how they came to be rescued. Then we follow the trials and tribulations, cheers and tears through the process of becoming an adoptable dog that may include vet care, behavioral training, obedience training, and more, but always includes patience, education and tender care from the foster families and shelter workers that dedicate their time to each and every one.
The stakes are high – if they don’t make it, they could be euthanized, or languish in a shelter for untold days, months, years. Each show brings the audience
to the ultimate moment of resolution – when the hero is decreed “adoptable” and ready to go to their Furever Home.
We believe that telling the stories of dogs who have come through rescue will break down the myths surrounding their worth as adoptable pets, and as a consequence, start to address the escalating issue of dog overpopulation with all its tragic ramifications.
