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: K.D. & Lange – Two Chihuahuas Looking For Their Forever Home(s)

11 Jan

Welcome to the next installment of Rescue Me in which we feature pets waiting for adoption at the Vancouver BC SPCA. Today we would like to introduce you to 2 lovely little Chihuahuas.  They are K.D. and Lange and came together to the Vancouver SPCA through a cruelty investigation.  These two girls are 7 and 8 years old respectively.  It would be nice to see K.D. and Lange go  to a new home together, but their friends at the Vancouver BC SPCA think they would both adjust to being adopted separately with some love and understanding from their new pet savvy guardians. Both girls would be able to go to a home with another dog as long as it is a calm, patient and confident canine, but neither would be suitable in a home with young children. The girls are a bit nervous, but gaining more confidence with the help of the staff and volunteers at the Vancouver BC SPCA, so much so they are now wagging their tails when it’s time for their walk. They are not fully house trained yet, but staff and volunteers have been working with them. Both K.D. and Lange would love a lap to curl up on and each would smother you with kisses.  The girls are hanging out behind the desk with the staff at the Vancouver BC SPCA Branch, so feel free to stop by and say hi to these two lovely girls.  You can see them at 1205 East 7th Avenue or if you have questions, you can contact the Shelter by telephone at 604-879-7721 or by email at vancouver@spca.bc.ca. As always, we thank you in advance for sharing this information to help these lovely girls find their FURever home.

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: 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: Tuxedo Cat Ruby Looking For Her Forever Home

21 Apr

RubyVanSPCAWelcome 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 darling cat, Ruby.  This sweet friendly girl is desperately hoping for her forever home this time around. Ruby who is 4 years old was adopted 3 years ago from the Vancouver SPCA but was returned when her guardians had a baby.  She’s an active girl who loves to play. Thus, a home with lots of toys and climbing posts to keep her stimulated is best.  Ruby can be a little shy with strangers, but we hear once she warms up to you, she will be rolling around for your attention and pets.  If you think you could give this tuxedo beauty 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.

UPDATED May 2, 2016: Ruby found her forever home.

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.

Rescue Me: Marjorie 9 Year Old Tabby Looking For Her Forever Home

17 Nov

MarjorieWelcome 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 Marjorie.  She is a 9 year old tabby cat.  Our friends at the Vancouver SPCA tell us that Marjorie is a terrific cat.  We hear that she puts the A in affection and heads butts are her specialty. This lovely girl will begin purring as soon as she sees you. Marjorie has lived with a gentle dog in the past, but the Vancouver SPCA thinks she would probably prefer to be just with you. She enjoys watching the goings-on at a busy window and is best suited to a calm home with adults or cat savvy older kids. Marjorie does require a special diet due to some renal issues and will require ongoing vet care with regular blood work. Otherwise, Marjorie is a happy, healthy, loving girl. If you think you can give her a forever home, 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. UPDATE Marjorie has found her forever home.
