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: A Sweet Miniature Schnauzer Cross Looking For His Forever Home

12 Jul

MikeyWelcome 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 Mikey. He is a 7 year old miniature Schnauzer Cross who came to the Vancouver SPCA through a cruelty investigation.  This sweet boy lived with untreated skin allergies and infections for long periods of time. Therefore, he is a bit leery of being touched and petted in certain areas. He is a bit fearful of new situations and may not do well being left alone for long periods of time. Therefore, he will need some experienced guardians.  Having said this, once you’ve earned his trust, he is a very affectionate boy and we hear he has quite the zest for life.  We understand Mikey is an amazing little walker and loves going for long walks.  His friends at the Vancouver BC SPCA think he will flourish in the right home and is currently living with other dogs in foster and enjoying their company.  The Vancouver BC SPCA does feel a quiet adult home is best for Mikey.  Can you give this sweet boy a chance at a loving caring home?  If so his friends at the Vancouver BC SPCA would love to hear from you.  As Mikey is in foster, the Vancouver BC SPCA would be more than happy to arrange a meeting. You can reach them by telephone at 604-879-7721 or by email at vancouver@spca.bc.ca. As always, we welcome all shares that will help this boy find his forever home.

 

RESCUE ME: Sawyer A Pit Bull Cross Is Looking For His Forever Home

5 Jan

SawyerWelcome 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 Sawyer. Sawyer is a 5 year old male Pit Bull Cross and is a very active boy. This boy would love nothing more than to accompany you on your outdoor adventures. Sawyer is super smart dog that will require some mental stimulation to keep his mind busy. His friends at the SPCA think Sawyer would do well with agility or nosework, but then he also loves play time with his toys. We understand that Sawyer can get over stimulated and become jumpy and mouthy, therefore, a home without children is best. Sawyer does need a confident, dog-savvy guardian with behaviour experience to help him reach his amazing potential. He is also learning to love his crate and with a bit more practice will be able to use his crate as his own personal safe space.  Sawyer is okay with dogs and may do well in a home with a friend though he can get a bit amorous with the female canines. He seems to find cats a little too fun to chase so a home with felines, likely would not be best.  Sawyer has an infectious personality and a tail that wags at the speed of light. You are invited to come down to the Vancouver SPCA and meet this handsome boy.  If you think you could give Sawyer 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 Sawyer find his 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.

Rescue Me: Pearl & Blue Are Seniors Looking For Their Forever Home

24 Nov

Pearl&BlueDid you know November was adopt a senior month?  In that spirit, in our next installment of Rescue Me, in which we feature pets waiting for adoption at the Vancouver SPCA, we would like to introduce you to Pearl and Blue.  They are 9 years of age and mixed breed dogs German Shepherd Cross and Collie Cross. These two are a bonded pair and are ONLY to be adopted together. Pearl and her sister Blue, have not had the best start in life.  Prior to coming to the BC SPCA, these sisters spent every second together as they were tethered most of their lives. They ate together from the same bowl and were virtually attached at the hip. What is fabulous about these girls, is that everything is new to them like puppies, so they are experiencing the wonders of the world and smells.  These are 2 very sweet dogs that deserve a chance at a happy life.  Our friends at the Vancouver SPCA tell us that Pearl and Blue are both very loving dogs and are ready to enjoy all of the perks a cherished indoor family pet gets to experience. That said, they do need patient and understanding guardians who can help them adjust and settle into cushy retirement paradise. These girls enjoy leisurely walks, but won’t require hours and hours of physical activity. Due to their inexperience, the Vancouver SPCA thinks that small children may not be suitable and they should be the only pets in the home.  We hear that cats have proven to be a little too fun to chase. The girls will shortly be getting a professional groom and then then they will be ready to go to their forever home. If you think you can give these girls a home or know someone that could, the Vancouver SPCA Shelter would love to hear from you. You can find them at 1205 East 7th Avenue or you can reach them by telephone at 604-879-7721 or by email at vancouver@spca.bc.ca.

Rescue Me: Grizzly One Cool Dude Is Looking For His Forever Home

22 Oct

GrizzlyWelcome 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 Grizzly.  He is a 2 year old male Chesapeake Bay Retriever/Pit Bull Terrier Mix.  If you are looking for a running or hiking partner, then we hear that Grizzly is your guy. He’s a high energy dog that requires an active home.  His friends at the Vancouver SPCA think he will benefit from some fun obedience training to help polish his behavior skills as well as keeping him stimulated.  Grizzly if left alone for long periods without enough exercise, may become bored and bark as well as exhibit a bit of destructive behaviour.  The Vancouver SPCA thinks he would be best suited for an adult only home or one with older children as he’s young and fairly excitable and with his size could be overwhelming for young children.  He can be selective with his canine friends, so they prefer he be your one and only four legged friend. If you think this handsome boy might be a good fit for you, 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.
