Pommy & Pals Dog Rescue is a non-profit all breed dog rescue based in the North Thompson region of BC, Canada. This area includes Kamloops, Barriere and the surrounding areas.
Pommy & Pals Dog Rescue officially opened as a not for profit rescue in 2013 as Pommy Country with our first rescue named Ariel. She was known as the pomeranian listed online for “sale” as the “outdoor pom”. She was living in a backyard producing puppies for 6 years prior to surrender. When she arrived she was covered in feces from another dog, fleas which were eating her alive and fur covered in matts. She also had a huge hernia which was a result of over-breeding. Her bladder had been pushing through her hernia causing her to urinate every 20 minutes. Once she was healthy she was off to the United States where she was adopted by the most amazing family who now volunteers with our organization! She is living the life of a princess now!
Since opening in 2013 we have expanded from just taking in pomeranians to taking in any breed dog in need and sometimes even medium and large breed dogs. As long as we have an available foster home, we will accept fur babies in our door – whether it be an owner surrender, stray, hoarding situation, puppymill, registered breeder or by any other means. If you need assistance re-homing your fur baby, please complete the owner surrender form that can be found on this website.
We are dedicated to the happiness and well-being of each any every dog. We volunteer our time, efforts and love to our animals. We truly believe that a dog is not just a dog, but a member of the family.
Pommy Country is committed to helping local and Canadian dogs first. In saying that, we also rescue from the shelters in the United States. A dog in need, is a dog in need. Dogs know no borders. We are here to help dogs in need regardless of their situation or where they have come from.
All dogs that come into our rescue are fully vetted prior to adoption. They receive a general health check, spay/neuter, microchip, vaccines and de-worm. Dentals are done if needed as well as any other vet care recommended by our vet. Adoption process includes full screening to be sure that the dog is in the best fitting home for their personality. All dogs have different needs and the home should be what is best suited for their them.
All individuals involved with Pommy & Pals Dog Rescue work on a volunteer basis, absolutely no one is paid for their time spent working with our society. We do this for our love of dogs. Don’t shop. Adopt! Save a life!
Just some of your amazing Volunteers
