Cross your fingers everyone! Shayo a rabbit brought in to one of our affiliated clinics to be euthanized for aggression, has been placed in what seems to be an excellent foster home. They're intention is to adopt... if they can break through his angry facade and teach him how to be a lovey bunny. From what I hear... so far so good!
Okay boys and girls, this little guy has a look all his own! Somewhere between maybe a spaniel, terrier, boston? Your guess is as good as mine! This medium size dog was found running around longueiul. We posted in search of his owner on Craigslist, notified the local animal control office and searched postings on Kijiji not to mention any and every other lost dog site I could find. No one has come forward to claim this specail lttle guy, after a week in our care he is now up for adoption.
Our wonderful foster family told us he's doing great! He loves to go on walks, he pulls a bit but knows to stop at intersections. He doesn't use a backyard well, doesn't know to do his business there and he looks for a way out (but that could be because he's not operated yet). He loves the dog park, he plays very well with other dogs. He does not do well in a crate/cage. He does bark when people come to the door, and when someone moves around up stairs but then he stops once he sees them. Apartment living might be out for this guy...
Age 1-2 years
After placing SHAYO in foster care the foster family stopped off to buy a cage from someone off Kijji. Shortly after I received an urgent email advising us that the women selling the cage was so distressed about not being able to find a new home for her rabbit, she was considering giving him to someone who offered to take him, but to feed him to his snake!
Even if it was just a threat we couldn't take the chance, we got the poor bun out of there a.s.a.p!!! It seems the reason for the adoption was that the woman had developped allergies. In an attempt to reduce allergens in her home... this unfortunate bunbun was shaved! The woman was extremely lucky that she didn't cut through the skin, something that happens to easily when shaving rabbits.
Hopefully, a warm and loving home can see through the funny haircut and give this boy a loving, forever home!
Hehe... I've named him Snake, I'm sure this will be changed in his new home but I thought this was a good boy name aside from his story.
Snake is a Holland Lop cross
Approx. 2 yrs
Supposed to be litter box trained (stress can affect this)
PLEASE CAN'T SOMEONE GIVE THIS LITTLE GUY A CHANCE? HE NEEDS A FOREVER FAMILY!!!

This is a chance for everyone who has donated or would like to personally. Come and meet the little Mr. Man – Dewey! He is very excited to meet all the faces that helped save his life.
After everything he has been through. Feel welcome to sign his cast with some words of encouragement. If you are going to have to lug around a goofy cast, might as well have some fun with it?
We still have a fair way to go to cover his surgery costs so we are also having a nail cutting fundraiser. With donations of 5$ or more your pet gets a free nail cut! Rabbits, cats, dogs, all welcome!
(People who have already donated online we will have a list so bring your furry critter by, we will cut their nails for free!)

The corrective surgery will need to be done by a specialist, and will involved pins, nuts, bolts, medications, check-up’s, follow up x-rays and more check – up’s.. I short A LOT of money.
Eleven Eleven has taken the little guy on, and is hoping to come up with enough donations to cover the surgery costs.. to save little Dewey.
Dewey is a fantastic puppy, with a whole life ahead of him; an accident in the house should not have to mean the end of his short life (or a broken elbow).
HELP US SAVE DEWEY

Bunkie’s family got caught in a tight situation and had to leave town – FAST (For confidential reasons). Bunkie was about an hour away from getting the boot (Or being left behind) when 11-11 got called by someone working their case, we rushed to the rescue in 20 minutes and rescued the little kitty. She is now safe and sound and looking for a new home to start her brand new life. She is a little compact ball of non-stop l-o-v-e, so get ready for it!
Porscha was rescued in November and after 4 months has now bee ADOPTED! She is a true survivor and was the vicitim of for profit breeding. Because of the negelctful conditions she was kept in and poor genetics Porscha has NO tear production. She arrived with leathery dry eyes, the docotors did not even belive they would be able to recover. But this little mircale worker, worked her maigic along with intensive eye treatments and a fantastic foster mom Porscha slowly regained her vision! She however will never have tear production, and for the rest of her life will always be on eye ointments. Even with that Porscha was able to find an EXCEPTIONAL home, with a new sister! She is one lucky pup and is now finally getting the second chance at life so many people have fought for her to have. Thank you to her beyond amazing foster mum Leesa, and the amazing adoptive home who looked past her special needs and what what we all saw, just Porshca a perfect little flawless pup.

Jill is a survivor. Jill has suffered and survived the torture of being in a puppy mill at the mercy of a human for the greed of making money to produce that cute puppy you see at the pet store. She was one of many surrendered by the puppy mill who no longer had use for them. However unlike all the others Jill remains the most reserved, she is in short petrified of humans (For very good reasons). However despite how scared she is, she has no mean bone in her. She needs work, a lot of work and someone willing to help bring her out of her shell and undo all the wrongs and injustice she has suffered at the hands of humans. She is a sweet heart, and is just waiting for that special person to spoil her with love and show her that us humans ‘aint all that bad!

Kodie was picked up as a stray wondering the streets and picked up by Animal Control. Who knows how long he was on the streets for, or if he ever was an indoor dog. But all we know is he is a great pup! He is cute as a button and looks like a 4 month old puppy, most people can not believe it when they are told he is fully grown. He has the cutest little puppy face and will keep it. He is smart as can be, cute as can be, obedient, loyal, loving... goofy. What more can we say? He is one in a million, and is looking for that perfect family to complete.
