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: Cookie Is Looking For Their Forever Homes

2 Nov

gerryWelcome 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 couple of animals who’ve been patiently waiting for their forever homes. First off, meet Gerry who is a fun young excitable dog with lots of energy. Thus, he does require an active and patient guardian. Gerry is a white and tan Pit Bull Terrier who is almost 2 years old. He originally came into the Prince George SPCA as a stray and was then later surrendered by his guardian.  Gerry is a very affectionate dog and will shower you with kisses and is a little over eager at times  Some formal obedience classes will help him with his manners and thrive in the right environment.  His friends at the Vancouver SPCA think Gerry is best suited to an adult only home. And if you love snuggling and swimming, you are a great match. These are two of Gerry’s favourite things to do.  If you think you could give this bouncy boy a forever home the Vancouver SPCA Shelter would love to hear from you. You can find Gerry at 1205 East 7th Avenue or by telephone at 604-879-7721 or by email at vancouver@spca.bc.ca. UPDATE: Gerry has been adopted! 🙂

Next up, we’d like to introduce you to Cookie. Cookie is a beautiful sassy cat. She is a black cat that’s 8 years young that requires a cat savvy home, preferably the only one. Cookie we hear has an adorable chirp and loves to roll on her special rug and show off her lovely locks.  She enjoys the cocookiempany of people she knows, but does have a lower petting tolerance than some other cats. So a cat savvy guardian that knows when she needs her alone time is best. Her friends at the Vancouver SPCA think she would be happiest in a quiet adult-only home.  If you think you could give this lovely girl a forever home the Vancouver SPCA Shelter would love to hear from you. Again, you can find them and Cookie at 1205 East 7th Avenue or by telephone at 604-879-7721 or by email at vancouver@spca.bc.ca. We are, as always, grateful if you share this information and help Gerry and Cookie find their forever homes.

Rescue Me: Persian Cross Sky Looking For His Forever Home

14 Jun

 

SkySPCA1Welcome 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 boy named Sky. Sky is a beautiful persian cross that is 11 years old. He came to the Vancouver BC SPCA after a change in his living environment. So an adult home where he is the apple of your eye would be perfect for him. Speaking of eyes, Sky has stunning baby blue eyes and is a sweet and loving cat. He has a sensitive nature which makes life in the shelter unsettling for him, but his friends at the Vancouver SPCA feel he will flourish in his new home.   Sky is an indoor only cat and with his long hair will require regular brushing. If you can give this sweet boy a forever home, his friends at the Vancouver SPCA Shelter would love to hear from you. You can find him at 1205 East 7th Avenue or by telephone at 604-879-7721 or by email at vancouver@spca.bc.ca

Foto Friday – Record Number of Dogs In Foster With Vancouver BC SPCA

13 May

VanSPCAFostersAs those that follow us regularly know, we are big supporters of the BC SPCA and the work they do. We regularly feature pets waiting for adoption and often they are ones that are a bit harder to place.  In today’s Foto Friday we are featuring a collage of pets that have been patiently waiting for some time in foster for their forever home.  We have learnt that the Vancouver BC SPCA currently has a record number of canines in foster care.  Since they are not in the shelter, they are not as visible to those looking for a pet, but of course just as deserving of that forever home.  As of today’s writing, each of one of the dogs pictured is still waiting.   So today we’d like to give them some virtual love to help them find what they so need and deserve. If you would like more information about any one of these dogs, you can find more information on their website at Vancouver BC SPCA, 1205 East 7th Avenue. You can also reach them by telephone at 604-879-7721 or by email at vancouver@spca.bc.ca. They will be more than happy to arrange a visit for you.  As always, we welcome any shares.

RESCUE ME: Lenny 4 Year Old Tabby Looking For His Forever Home

10 May

LennyWelcome 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 boy named Lenny.  Lenny is a 4 year old male tabby that came to the Vancouver BC SPCA as a stray through the Maple Ridge branch.  Although he had permanent ID and they were able to track his owner, he had been missing for a whole year!!  Due to this length of time missing, his previous owners felt it was best that Lenny stay with the BC SPCA so they could find him a more suitable home.  No one is really sure what or where he was for that year, but when found, he had FAD (flea allergy dermatitis) which they’ve treated and his hair is growing in nicely.  Lenny, as you can see from the pic, is a rather handsome boy. As for diet, he does need to remain on a Hypoallergenic diet. Lenny is extremely head shy and does appreciate a safe distance while getting to know people. He does startle easy on hearing loud noises as well as sudden movements, so a home with no children is important. The BC SPCA is working on desensitizing him to touch and creating positive experiences with him, but he will need a dedicated and cat savvy guardian to continue this with him. Lenny had spent some time at the recent satellite adoption center “Catfe” but he found it to be too stressful, so his friends at the BC SPCA say he should be the only cat in the home. Lenny is very playful, loves to chase his toys and loves to play with water. Thus, turn on a tap, he will keep you amused for a long time!  If you think you could give this handsome boy a forever home, the Vancouver SPCA Shelter would love to hear from you. You can find him at 1205 East 7th Avenue or by telephone at 604-879-7721 or by email at vancouver@spca.bc.ca

Rescue Me: Check Out These Foster Kids Looking For A New Home

24 Feb

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 introduce you to a couple of animals in foster care. First off, there is Georgia who 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 cats likely not.  She’s a little too into them. Georgia’s friends at the Vancouver SPCA think she is best suited for a house with a yard as well as an adult only home.  Ideally, Georgia needs people that will give her a fair bit of time and attention and initially shouldn’t be left home alone for more than 3-4 hours. This lovely girl recently tore her ACL and has had surgery to repair it, so needs a home with some TLC.  If you think you could give this fire ball of energy a forever home and some time to recuperate, 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.

Next up, we’d like to introduce you to Ninja. Ninja is a 7 year old black short hair cross cat and her friends at the Vancouver SPCA would REALLY like you to meet this lovely girl. She is a favourite of the staff and volunteers at the SPCA.  This girl has a heart of gold and an over the top affectionate nature. They’d really like to see her find her forever home. As she’s an older black cat, she tends to be easily overlooked. This lovely girl was surrendered when her guardian could not find pet friendly housing. This home was already her second home, so her friends at the Vancouver SPCA are really hoping her next home will be her last. There are few things that Ninja loves more than people and water. She’s often found pawing in her water bowls and keeping people entertained with her antics. We hear that she takes breaks from her water pawing to enjoy a major cuddle session complete with head butts. One minor disclosure, the staff at the Vancouver SPCA have noticed that Ninja is not really into the other cats, they are recommending she be the only feline in the home.  She’s lived solely indoors and they feel it should remain that way. Common in older cats, Ninja is in the early stages of renal disease so regular vet check-ups are important. Ninja has so much love to offer and she’d really love a forever home. If you think you Ninjacould give this sweet 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.
