Foster Needed in BC

Goldie is the beautiful mum to the litter of pups Hug has just placed. As usual, it's easy to find homes for cute little puppies, but much harder to find a spot for momma dog. Personally, I don't get it - puppies poo & pee everywhere and chew everything in sight - give me a grownup dog any day! ...

sweet - thanks for looking into your contact for this boy. To clarify, this boy will not randomly bite people, but, unlike a sound Pit Bull, will bite under the "right" conditions. He's been well-socialized and is gentle and friendly with people he knows (shelter staff). I simply feel it's...

Fila Brasileiro needs rescue

There's a gorgeous 3 year old male Fila (fawn) in need of rescue. He's been in a small shelter for 6 months, and needs out. This boy is everything a Fila should be - all business with strangers, gentle and sweet with people he knows. Good with other dogs and good with cats, knows basic obedience com...

Now he just needs his home ! You cant ask for a better companion then a senior pit bull.


Well, as it turns out, he needs more than a new home, he needs (and will get!) some veterinary care. You can read the update here.

time for an update! Gabe's preliminary bloodwork came back, and the good news is, his liver and kidney function are normal. Bad news is, his globulin levels are high, and his spleen is still enlarged. We don't know why his spleen is enlarged. X-rays didn't show any tumours, which is good news, but d...

Maryellen - got your PM, thanks! Cancer is, of course, what we're most worried about, although the vet keeps assuring us it's not that likely. He's getting a blood panel done this week, which should tell us more. If the panel shows infection, we'll put him on a stronger course of antibiotics (he's a...

Gabe needs your help - updated!

Most of y'all have already read about Gabriel, formerly Kevlar, who just came into our foster program. Not surprisingly, given his background, his vet visit turned up some medical issues. Gabe has an infection in both ears, due to their being impacted, which is now being treated. He also has mild ar...

I don't know what will be happening with the former owner - I got the impression he's in jail on drug charges. Gabe was owned by an alleged drug dealer, who was allegedly breeding pits for fighting. He was kept with three larger, younger, intact males who beat the snot out of him. He came into the s...

I. Love. This. Dog. I went and picked up the big boy today and brought him to his foster home. I've renamed him Gabriel ("Gabe") after my old cat, who was also a fat-headed senior rescue. Gabe is a total gem. A stately old gent, with a silly side. He's got the biggest head I've ever seen o...

I'm delighted to say that we've found a foster home for Kevlar (who's name will be changing to something suitably soft, squishy and silly like him) :)

Stay tuned for updates.

no credit to me - the shelter took care of him. He's still in shelter. I'd like to pull him, but need a foster spot - our fosters are all currently full. Kirstan, thanks for the offer, but the foster would need to be in the Lower Mainland or on the Island. However, if you know of any good private re...

Foster desperately needed in BC Lower Mainland *graphic*

I am putting out a plea to anyone who can open their home and their hearts to a very needy senior boy. This is a really nice dog, who's had a horrible life so far, and who shouldn't be sitting in a shelter. Kevlar is a Kong fanatic, and a total mushpot. He hasn't shown any reactivity to dogs in the ...
