Rescue Me: Johnny Is Looking For His Forever Home

5 Apr

JohnnyWelcome to the next installment of Rescue Me in which we feature pets waiting for adoption at the Vancouver SPCA. Today we would like to introduce you to a lovely exuberant boy named Johnny. Johnny is an 8 month old male Doberman Coonhound Cross who has done a bit of travelling. He came from Quesnel by way of the Drive For Lives Program which landed him in the West Vancouver SPCA in mid-February. He’s now made his way to the Vancouver SPCA where he is learning to be Johnny Be Good. We understand that Johnny is a high energy young pup that they believe was primarily left outside when he was a very young pup. So Johnny missed out on some prime learning opportunities. Therefore, he now he now needs an adult only home with active guardians who have time and patience to work with Johnny on his Johnny2doggie behaviour. We understand he’s a big goofy pup who loves his stuffies, chew toys and dog puzzles. He can be quite vocal (having that coon hound) thus an environment where barking may cause a disturbance may not the best for him.  Johnny is practising being polite when meeting new dogs and people, but he has a ways to go still, so needs someone that will work within through positive reinforcement based obedience. If you think you could give this beautiful goofy boy a FURever home, the Vancouver BC SPCA Shelter would love to hear from you. You can find them at 1205 East 7th Avenue or you can contact them by telephone at 604-879-7721 or by email at vancouver@spca.bc.ca. As always, we are grateful for those that can share this information so that we can find Johnny his FURever home.

Rescue Me: Sweet Georgia Girl Would Love A FURever Home

30 Nov

georgiaWelcome to the next installment of Rescue Me in which we feature pets waiting for adoption at the Vancouver SPCA. Today we would like to re- introduce you to a lovely girl named Georgia who we featured earlier this year. She is a 2 year old Labrador Retriever crossed with Pit Bull Terrier. Georgia is a sweet, smart and energetic girl. She loves playing with other dogs and could easily live with a canine companion that has her rough and tumble style of play, but likely not cats.  She’s a little too into them. The girl has had a bit of a rough year though.  Being an energetic young dog with that lab energy, she tore her ACL. She has had surgery to repair it, so she spent a fair bit of time in foster on the mend, but is now fully recovered. Her foster family is now caring for a litter of kittens, so Georgia is now back to kennel life at the Vancouver SPCA.   Georgia would really love a FURever home to call her own where she gets to stay and make new friends.  The Vancouver SPCA thinks she is best suited for a house with a yard as well as an adult only home.  Ideally, Georgia needs her people to have bit of time and attention to give her initially while she settles in before being left home alone for periods of more than 3 – 4 hours.  She quite likes bully sticks and they keep her occupied and entertained whilst hanging out at the kennel. I’m sure if you brought her one, she’d be a friend for life.   If you think you could give this fire ball of energy a FURever home,  Vancouver SPCA Shelter would love to hear from you. You can find them at 1205 East 7th Avenue or by telephone at 604-879-7721 or by email at vancouver@spca.bc.ca

 

RESCUE ME: Karma Is Looking For Her Forever Home

8 Dec

KarmaVanSPCAWelcome to the next installment of Rescue Me in which we feature pets waiting for adoption at the Vancouver SPCA. Today we would like to introduce you to Karma.  Karma is a 2 year old female Pit Bull Terrier Mastiff Cross.  So yes, she’s a large breed dog.  We hear this girl will definitely bring some good karma into your life. She is full of wags, kisses and generally just a big love.  As she is young, this girl has some exuberant energy to burn, thus will need an active companion.  We understand she has some enthusiastic behavior, but with some exercise and obedience work, her friends at the Vancouver SPCA think she will learn some proper manners quickly.  Karma is a silly playful girl and happily amuses herself with squeaky toys, but ultimately she is happiest by your side.   If you think you could give this girl a forever home, the Vancouver SPCA Shelter would love to hear from you. You can find them at 1205 East 7th Avenue or by telephone at 604-879-7721 or by email at vancouver@spca.bc.ca. As always, we welcome any shares to help find Karma her forever home.

UPDATED December 15, 2015: Karma has found her forever home. Thanks for all the shares.
