Name: London

Gender: Female

Age: Born Jan. 15, 2009

Name: Cricket
Gender: Female
Age: Oct 22 2016
Approx.size/weight when full grown: 6 lbs
Breed: DSH
History: Cricket was saved from being put down by her family. They claimed she had litter box issues and they did not want to do any vetting to see if they could help her. We did some tests and found out that she has crystals in her urine and she has recently been cleared of any crystals or urine infections. Due to the fact that she has had issues her new family will need to watch for any signs of urinary issues as there is always a chance that they could reoccur.

Cricket is a playful and quirky cat, who loves to chase a toy around as much as she likes to lay in the sun. Her favourite activities are curling up on your lap while you do work at home, and chirping and meowing at birds outside the window. She likes trying new (cat-friendly) foods, and is also happy to hunt down any bugs that may get in the house. Cricket has a lot of personality and can be both independent or a bit more attention seeking depending on her mood. She would be a lovely addition to any family who likes cats who can be both playful or cuddly, and want a furry friend to add more love to their lives.

 

She loves attention but prefers to be the only cat around

Name: Simon
Gender: Male
Age: Sept 15 2018
Approx.size/weight when full grown: 12 lbs
Breed: Siamese Mix
History: Simon has already had 2 homes in his short life and is looking for a family to fully commit to him for life. Simon is the sweetest soul! He wants nothing more than to cuddle up on your shoulder and give you a face full of his fur. Simon is quite independent but has his playful and loving side that comes out daily when he just wants to be around his humans! He loves attention and playing. He would prefer a family where he is the only cat. He lacks confidence with other cats which causes him to become a target for them. He is overweight so having an adopter willing to exercise him daily will help him gain years back on his life.

Name: Blazey

Gender: Female
Age: July 27 2018
Approx.size/weight when full grown: 50- 80lbs
Breed: Shepherd Mix
History: Blazey came into care with a litter of pups (Ice Age Litter) She was set to go back to her family but they changed their minds. Blazey is a very quick learner. She loves to play in the yard and zoom around. She is still learning about city life but does well on walks and recovers fast if something spooks her. She is anxious and untrusting of men. We believe this is something she can overcome with training. 

She is currently looking for a Woman only home with a yard. No condos for her as she does like to sing from time to time and we would not want this to cause any issues in a condo

Name: Offelia
Gender: Female
Age: Oct 17 2020
Approx.size/weight when full grown: 60-90 lbs
Breed: Large Breed Mutt
History: Her mom came into our care pregnant from the reservation. Offelia is such a sweet 6 month old puppy! Isn't her curly tail just the cutest!! She is happiest when she is with people and playing with other dogs. She loves to sniff and explore at the park, greeting dogs and people. Give her a bone or a bully stick and she will keep busy while you are working away. She has started to show signs of resource guarding her toys and bones around other dogs. She will need a family willing to work with her on this. She loves to go on walks but still needs some work on pulling. She has many tricks including sit, down, roll over, stay and wait (for food). She is quick to catch on to her training and responds well to positive reinforcement and of course TREATS! She is bonkers for homemade treats but any treats will do!
She loves going for walks/hikes and car rides, cuddling, playing with toys and belly Rubs

Name: Phoenix
Gender: Male
Age: Born March 28, 2017
Approx. size/weight when fully grown: 60-90 lbs.
Breed: Boxer mix
History: Always eager to lap up your love, friendly Phoenix is passionate about people, couch time and cuddles. Putting the "p" into playful, this happily energetic pup also loves playing with toys and sticks and particularly enjoys games of tug-o-war. Highly intelligent and slightly independent, he’s honing his leash walking skills but remains insecure around strangers, causing him to lunge or growl. He must, therefore, wear a muzzle when meeting new people and going to the vet. For these reasons, Phoenix is best suited to a home without children or other animals where experienced adopters will perfect his skills and further socialize him in exchange for his enduring loyalty and love.

Name: Oaklee
Gender: Female
Age: Oct 17 2020
Approx.size/weight when full grown: 50-80 lbs
Breed:Shepherd Mix
History: Oaklee was born in care. Oaklee is a very energetic and fun-loving puppy who is oh-so-very smart. She is gentle, sweet, forgiving and tolerant, loving, and extremely friendly. Oaklee is fostered in a home with two rambunctious school-age boys, and another puppy the same age. They all love to play and roughhouse together. Oaklee has learned that the command “gentle“ means that she needs to back it down a little and be more careful. She loves goofing around with her “sister“ pup in the yard, going on walks to explore, and loves to experience new things, check out new smells, and explore everything she can. She loves being outside, and in the quieter moments, laying on the couch or at your feet. She thoroughly enjoys belly rubs, and head scratches. She is very good at returning love as well, and will often come to you just for a little “hello”, then return back to her favourite spot to rest. She is still learning how to be more polite, especially when meeting new people or new animals. She gets very excited, and can’t wait to show how much she loves to make new acquaintances. She is still learning not to jump up on people so will need a family willing to work on this and might not be suited for little kids that can be easily knocked over or hurt if jumped on. Oaklee can be strong-willed at times, probably because she’s so dang smart, and training moments can go one of two ways; super-easy, or quite challenging. She is a wonderful animal with a fantastic spirit, and would likely do well in a home that has an active lifestyle, room to run in the yard, and one full of patience and good intentions. Oaklee is fully crate trained, and house-trained, and will ring a bell when she wants outside for her business, and to come back in when she’s done. This dog has so much to give, and with the right forever-home, she will flourish.

Name: Flamingo (mom of zoo Litter)

Gender: Female
Age: May 7 2019
Approx.size/weight when full grown: 50- 80lbs
Breed: Husky Mix
History: Flamingo came into care with her litter of 5 pups. She is currently learning to be a city house dog. She has caught on pretty fast though.

She's super quiet, and chill. She likes all people and dogs so far, but not sure what she’ll do if she ever gets a hold of that squirrel. Her favourite thing to do is just lay in the morning sun on the lawn, or laze in the shade in the afternoon. She definitely needs a home with a yard and friends, either another dog or a human, she’s not picky. And if you are active that would be awesome! Not sure if she learned it or if she did it before, but she throws a tennis ball in the air with her mouth and bats it, midair, with her paw.
