Our Featured Dog
Murphy was surrendered to the shelter. His family decided they did not have enough time for him and gave him up. Murphy was kept in the backyard for most of his life and crated in the garage at night. He is a sweet tempered dog who was not mistreated though he was neglected and is now slightly reserved and gets easily over excited. Murphy gets stimulated quickly and we are helping him learn how to be around people but not be the center of attention. He is learning his manners and is doing great with his learning! He is on his way to being a perfect gentleman! However, we really think a breed experienced family with no children would be best for him. He needs a confident and understanding owner to help him remember what it is like to be a dog that is loved and part of the family. Murphy gets a long with other dogs and we actually use him to test the compatibility of new dogs to the shelter with a doggy-friend.
Unfortunately, Murphy was surrendered with a very bad knee and we are currently trying to raise money so he can have knee surgery. We plan to use our Tollie Fund to help him go into his new home without pain or discomfort. If you are interested in Murphy please don't hesitate to contact us!
Our Featured Cat
Pandora was transferred to our shelter as part of our Traveling Tails Program. She was at another shelter and was not doing well. Pandora doesn't like other animals and is sure to tell her owners in the one way that sends the clearest message - peeing on their towels! However, here at the shelter we have her isolated to a dog kennel and she is FABULOUS! No inappropriate peeing at all and she would do totally fine in a home without other animals and a large litter box! We are so happy with Pandora and her progress and are very excited with the prospects of her new forever family!!
Meet Your Match Personality Results:
Pandora falls under the ORANGE category for the Meet-Your-Match Program. Cats in the orange category seek affection, are pretty outgoing and love to know what you are doing all the time, they also put the good in good company. She has a feline-ality of a Sidekick and will definitely help you with everyday things that used to be boring and monotonous!
Our Featured Small Animal
Miley was surrendered to the shelter along with 4 of her friends. She is a playful and social bunny looking for a home all to himself to call her own!
Please remember that when adopting a rabbit you are making a 10 year commitment to that pet. We recommend that all of our rabbits be kept indoors! They can pick up quickly on litter training just like a cat would and can be very interactive and social. Did you know that Rabbits need more room than most people realize? We don't recommend cages that are sold at pet stores as a main housing option as they tend to be tight and hard to clean, we recommend an x-pen type environment. 4ft X 4ft minimum which will keep them happy and sane! They also need an average of 3 to 4 hours of exercise a day, which can be very fun and interactive! Have you seen Rabbit Agility?
Rabbit adoptions are $50 and all rabbits are sterilized (spayed/neutered) and tattooed prior to adoption so they can be reunited with their families if they ever get lost!
DONATIONS ARE ALWAYS APPRECIATED!
We are always in need of kitten food as growing babies need a lot of nourishment! If you can help please contact the shelter by phone at (604) 940-7111
