Four Dogs From Hoarding Home Up For Adoption

Late in the evening on August 1st, Windsor/Essex County Humane Society staff met a very special transport from Quebec.

They say that four dogs of the 59 who had survived a serious hoarding situation in Quebec needed a hand on their road to a new life. The dogs were extremely undersocialized, and had no concept of living in a home.

“Quebec authorities and Humane Society International had made a lot of progress rehabilitating them, but they needed more one-on-one attention than was available in the emergency shelter and asked for our help,” said Humane Society officials.

The Humane Society’s behaviour team created a treatment plan for all the dogs, and has been working with the two dogs with more severe issues in shelter while the other two are living in foster homes learning “how to be dogs”.

Esme, Che, Shaggy, and Bonzai are now looking for homes, but will require new families that understand their special needs and allow them to continue to progress in their own time. Anyone interested in adopting one of these dogs is asked to visit the adoption centre to learn more and arrange a meeting.

They now invite you to be part of these life saving efforts, and help Esme, Che, Bonzai, and Shaggy continue on their road to recovery. Donations may be made online at or in person at 1375 Provincial Road.
