Our Featured Dog
Poor sweet Girly was left at a boarding facility after her owner fell ill. She was there for a little over 3 months and started to deteriorate. Now that she is here she is starting to turn over a new leaf! Girly is very sweet tempered and aims to please. She is a little nervous of other dogs but with time we believe she will be able to see that their are good dogs out there!! She does NOT understand cats or small animals and needs a home with older children who are OK to take part in her everyday training/walking. What an absolute sweetie-pie! Just LOOK at that face!
Our Featured Cat
Miss Beethoven has had quite the tough go lately. She came to the shelter as an injured stray - she was unable to walk and had a severely infected ear resulting in an inner ear infection. After months of treatment and a dental with some teeth removed she's on the mend and now able to find herself a forever home. Miss Beethoven definitely wants to be the Queen Bee as she's not fond of other animals. Give her your lap and some gentle petting and she'll purr and be your friend forever. Due to having such a bad infection for so long Miss Beethoven still sports a slight head tilt and often times is quite slow going and unstable on her feet. We've put her on a specific diet to keep her tummy happy and some weekly ear cleaning will be needed to maintain this sweet girl's ears. Miss Beethoven is a little rough around the edges but for what she lacks in balance she makes up for with her sweet personality. A nice quiet retirement home is what this little old lady needs. Could Miss Beethoven spend her days making music with you?
Update: Miss Beethoven was moved to one of our dog runs, to give her more room and to separate her from the other cats, and what a difference! This girl who often would hide in her little house, is out and about and exploring her new surroundings. She now comes to the front of her dog run to say "Hi" whenever someone heads her way. Such a huge change in so little time really gives us hope that in a new home with no other animals, Miss Beethoven will be the truly sweet and lovable cat we've always known she's wanted to be.
Our Featured Small Animal
Dimitri came to the shelter as a stray, running around a neighbourhood with his lady friend Anastasia. We believe the two were likely a breeding pair. Californian rabbits can live up to 10 years and grow to be 8-12 lbs! Dimitri's favourite thing to do is flop flat out with his legs stretched out behind him. This beautiful boy is also completely 100% litter box trained (urine and stool!) His calm Californian nature makes him a lovely bunny to be around! Dimitri developed a “wobble” in January 2016 – after an intense series of tests and medications it’s suspected that he has a primary neurologic/balance disorder and needs an extra special rabbit home.
DONATIONS ARE ALWAYS APPRECIATED!
