ANIMALS & RESCUERS IN NEED

3.5 months in the shelter!!!  Trudy needs help!!!  My name is TRUDIE. I am a female, tricolor German Shepherd Dog mix. The shelter staff think I am about 5 years old. I have been at the shelter since Jul 13, 2015 -- won't you please help me find my forever person?  Contact:  City of Oshawa Animal Services.

Can Peppy get a high-five on having the humblest underbite smile ever?

Diligence and patience will be key in assisting this boy to a life totally free of anxiety...Peppe is really a smart (and funny!) Old English Bulldog!  This dapper boy will flourish in a home that understands the importance of both consequence and reward and how to maintain a healthy balance.  Peppe has made great strides with his behavioural issues and will make a wonderful addition to a home that is able to follow his training protocol (training support included!). He'll return the favour by offering  you his unconditional love. At this time he is best suited to a home with no other dogs until his new frame of mind has taken root for the long term.  He is a 3 year old neutered male, healthy, and UTD on vaccines. He loves people and co-piloting in the car. He is ready for a permanent, loving home. He is a good dog, and we are determined to find him the right companion. Funds were raised by a GREAT group of people in London because they believed in him. Won't you?  So far, our investment in him has proven to be quite remarkable. With the right home, this boy is ready-set for forever success.   Contact: K9resQ, London 519.472.9396  contact@k9resq.ca

RESCUE UPDATES

 

Please don't support competitive horse events and challenge your family and friends to take a pass on it too!  These two beauties lost their lives to it. I'm sure they didn't choose it.
