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.

The Tipper Restaurant and Review Room begins their 2013/2014 Saturday Night Concert Series this Saturday, October 19th.  On deck this Saturday are Pearl, that being Kathy Francis and Andrea Smith. These two soulful performers have been a big part of west coast music camps over the years and pop-up at coffee house and festivals whenever asked. From swing to folk to old time, this duo will warm your heart and tickle your funny bone with their lush harmonies and varied instrumental support including guitar, mandolin, clarinet, ukes and percussion.  Add in a few original songs and pearls—what’s not to like? These ladies will also be launching their new CD ‘Happy to Roam’ this Saturday which will be available for sale for $15, for those that are interested.  Music begins at 8:00 p.m., but doors open at 7:15 p.m. Reservations are not available, thus it is recommended to come early to grab your seat, or better yet come early for dinner. Cost for the show is $10, or what you can pay. The Tipper Restaurant and Review Room is located at 2066 Kingsway at Victoria Drive.
