Welcome to The Nova Scotia Pet Project.     If you do not live in beautiful Nova Scotia, you might still might enjoy your visit here.     Please remember that this site does not list every rescue or shelter in this province.     How did I decide who to list?    That answer is pretty darned simple.    When a family member or a friend or a neighbour asks me for recommendations, these are the ones I suggest.

Nova Scotia is extremely lucky to have the The Nova Scotia Lost Dog Network.     It is based on the simple concept that sharing on social media really can help lost dogs find their way back home.      Since its inception, people all around the province have helped hundreds of lost dogs find their way back home simply by clicking their mice and sharing on Facebook.

Why is that so wonderful?    Besides all the Happy Endings?    Every lost dog that finds his or her way back home is one less “stray” dog that will need a shelter or rescue slot!


“If only we can overcome cruelty, to human and animal, with love and compassion we shall stand at the threshold of a new era in human moral and spiritual evolution – and realize, at last, our most unique quality: humanity.” ~ Jane Goodall

Lucy is a small senior Lhasa Apso & Poodle Mix who is available for adoption from Misfit Manor Dog Rescue

Lucy is a senior Havanese/ Lhas Apso mix.

Her early morning routine did not work well with the new baby in her previous home so she has landed with us at Misfit Manor. Lucy is an early riser and greets each new day with excitement and a howl so would not do well in an apartment setting.

We do know that she’s been diagnosed with stage 2 kidney disease. She requires a special diet that’s low in protein and phosphorus. If she’s monitored, she can live a long life with this condition.

If you have room for a cute little dog who will howl with excitement when you take centre stage in her life, then the lovely Lucy has room in her heart for you.
