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.

Rescue Me: Genie Rottweiler Shepherd Cross Looking For Her Forever Home

10 Jun

GenieSPCAWelcome 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 playful girl named Genie. Genie came to the Vancouver SPCA by way of the Drives for Lives program. She is a 5 year old Rottweiler German Shepherd cross and her friends at the Vancouver SPCA think she will have you wrapped around her paw in no time.   Genie is a cheeky playful girl with personality plus.  She lived on a reserve in Prince Rupert and has had a few litters and although a fantastic mom to all her pups, her friends at the SPCA now think it’s time for her to be babied a bit.  Genie loves people of all shapes and sizes. She can be a bit reactive to other dogs so she needs a dog-savvy guardian who is able to work with her on this. Genie has likely never lived inside of a home environment, but she has quickly discovered that she loves everything about it. She particularly likes tossing her toys around the SPCA’s reception area and rolling around their couch.  Nothing is off limits for Genie and she is quite comical at times so sure to bring her new guardians lots of joy. The Vancouver SPCA does feel her new guardians will need to work with her on some basic obedience training and gradual departure exercises as she may initially be anxious in her new environment. She is known to be an escape artist, so leash walks or a home with a fully fenced yard is a must.  Her friends at the Vancouver SPCA also think it’s best that she be the only pet in the household so she get the undivided love and attention she deserves.  If you think you can give Genie a new home, the Vancouver SPCA Shelter, 1205 East 7th Avenue would love to hear from you. You can reach the Vancouver SPCA by telephone at 604-879-7721 or by email at vancouver@spca.bc.ca. As always, we are grateful for those that share this information.
