Jonny Staub from Virgin Radio and TDIAO welcome 60 dogs from California – to be rescued November 6th by pre-approved families.


Thank Dog I Am Out (TDIAO)  has chartered a plane, flown by Wings of Rescue from Northern CA into Vancouver on Sat November 5th. Upon touching down Saturday, a team of over 100 volunteers will help transfer the dogs from the plane into the hanger, which will have been converted into an amazing DOG UTOPIA pop up adoption centre. That night a select group of dog savvy volunteers will be pulling out their sleeping bags and spend a dreamy night with 60 very lucky new TDIAO doggie recruits. This team will have all the dogs prepared to meet their PRE APPROVED potential families when they wake up on Sunday Nov 6th.


“I’m a huge dog lover, and it pains me to see any animal (regardless of their geographic location) unable to have a proper place to call home. Thank DOG I Am Out (TDIAO) is giving these dogs a second chance. They’re giving them hope. After attending the event last year (#Save100Dogs), I was so impressed that this year I am actually volunteering with TDIAO. Please get involved, get pre-approved to adopt and help save dog lives!”

Thank DOG I Am Out Dog Rescue Society started with Homer. Founded in 2009 by Susan Patterson, Thank DOG I Am Out’s humble beginnings began as a result of her inability to find a small or medium sized rescue in local BC shelters. Given no choice but to look abroad, Susan stumbled onto various rescue organizations based in the United States. That’s where she saw him: an abused, disabled, Chihuahua mix pulled off death row in Washington State, who was just crying out for a loving home.


Thank DOG I Am Out Dog Rescue Society  is a Not-for Profit Registered Charitable Organization #81653 8581 RR0001  based in Vancouver BC.

Their mandate is to:

Rescue and re-home as many adoptable dogs at risk of being euthanized, surrendered, abused, or neglected no matter where the dog is located. Place these rescued dogs into pre-approved fur-ever homes.
