Name: Misty
Gender: Female
Age: 2 years old
Approx.size/weight when full grown: 4-6 lbs Breed: Domestic short Hair 
History: She was found as a stray in Sylvan Lake. Misty is the ultimate kid cat! She loves spending time watching tv or playing xbox, she is not bothered by the antics of a ninja kid fighting bad guys around her as she naps on the floor and she will curl up for a snuggle any time of the day or night. Misty loves to be loved and will chat with you as you go about your day to day routines and keep up a conversation. She is calm and loving and would be suited for nearly any home! We are still learning about her feelings towards other cats and dogs.

Ready to go to new home July 6th

Name: Xylia

Gender: Female

Age: Born Mar 1 2020

Approx.size/weight when full grown: 60-90 lbs

Breed: Shepherd Mix

History: She was born in care and adopted out by her foster family. But they shortly decided that she was not a fit for them.

Xylia is a fun, curious, energetic pup who needs to build her confidence with meeting new people. She loves her walks, and playing with dogs. She also loves kids, but can be a bit rough when she wants to play. She is still working on her manners, but is doing really well learning and is highly treat motivated. Xylia isn’t really a cuddler, often preferring to lay in her crate to nap. She showed interest and was curious about the one cat and the guinea pigs she met, but didn’t show any aggression or desire to harm them.

She already knows Sit, is kennel trained, is great walking on leash and knows to ask to go outside.

The biggest thing is that she needs a home that can understand that she finds strangers terrifying and is willing to be patient and work with her to help her build her confidence so she can see that people are not so bad.

We are looking for a family that is committed to working with her to build her confidence by working with a trainer either on a one on one setting or a class setting. We would like to see sessions booked for when she goes home

Age: Born March 28 2017
Approx.size/weight when full grown: 60-90 lbs
Breed: Boxer Mix
History: Phoenix is very affectionate. He has come along way on leash but needs a confident person to work with him. He is very smart, independent and will love you. He is very playful, loves toys, sticks and tug of war. He is still insecure around strangers which can cause him to lunge or growl therefore he needs to wear a muzzle when meeting new people or attending vet appointments. He has a lot of energy but also loves to cuddle up on the couch with you. He is a very loving happy dog that would make a great addition to a quiet family with dog experience, no young children or animals and willing to work with him

Quartz was the first of his siblings to purr when loved on, he is definitely a lover but also a fighter! He can scrap with the best of them and will likely take out your feet as soon as you enter the room, but melt into a puddle as soon as scooped up.

Tinkerbelle & Shadow (Bonded Pair)


Name: Tinkerbelle
Gender: Tinkerbelle Female 
Age:  8 years old
Approx.size/weight when full grown: 40-45 lbs Medium height 
Breed: American Eskimo mix 
History: She is a happy and active girl.  She is nervous when meeting new people and would benefit from some confidence classes. We find that she is open to meeting people and being handled when she is with Shadow. Tinkerbelle came from a hoarding situation years ago and is the mom of our T litter from 3 years ago. She is a great walker and LOVES to be close to her humans and get loves of pets. 

Name:Shadow (Bonded Pair)
Gender: Shadow -Male 
Age:  Shadow 5 years old
Approx.size/weight when full grown: 86lbs Large height
Breed:Lab Mastiff mix
History: He loves to play with other dogs but is shy when meeting new people. He is scared of the world outside of his home and yard and could use some training to help him. He is terrified of being on a leash and therefore has not gone on walks. With patience and training we think he could come to like walks with Tink by his side. 

These two were adopted out but since returned. They were not comfortable with Tinkerbelle becoming protective of their home when they were not around and neighbors would come to let the dogs out.


We are looking for a home that has a yard for Shadow and is willing to take Tinkerbelle on lots of walks. Shadow is happy to just relax at home or run around the yard with Tinkerbelle. They need someone that will be patient with Shadow but willing to show him that the word is not so scary.

Adoption Status: Available

Name: French Toast

Gender: Female

Age: 1 year

Approx.size/weight when full grown: 6-8 lbs

Breed: DHS mix

History: She came to us form a reserve in Sask. 

French Toast is a beautiful, kind cat who loves pets and quality time with her people. She may take a bit of time to adjust to her new home and settle in, but after that she loves men, women and children of all ages and is super friendly with strangers and family alike! French Toast prefers her cuddles with 4 feet on the ground/couch rather than your lap or arms but she likes to be around her people and will follow you around and chat with you all day if allowed. She has the softest fur you've ever felt and is a super gentle soul.
