Indika

Homeless Based on WHAT She Looks Like

September 3, 2012

Indika was picked up and taken to the Brant County SPCA. Because she “looks” like a Pit Bull type dog, she falls under Ontario’s Breed Specific Legislation (BSL) which bans her from living in the province of Ontario. Her owner came forward to claim her, but because he had no paperwork that would indicate her breed, he was not allowed to take her home.

Rufus has left the building!

May 30, 2012

Well, after a mix-up yesterday did not free him, the folks from Angels of Fur returned to DeWitt today to spring Rufus from the DeWitt Animal Hospital in New York. You may remember from our post yesterday that Rufus was found covered in fleas and mange on the streets of Syracuse — alone. And to […]

Rufus: A Deaf Dog’s Journey from Shelter to Forever Home

May 28, 2012

The Beginning Tomorrow, after the DeWitt Animal Hospital in DeWitt, NY opens, a member of Angels of Fur will be there to pick up Rufus. An American Bulldog/Pit Bull Terrier mix, Rufus was brought into the shelter by animal control after he was found wandering the streets of Syracuse. He had fleas and a case […]

Update: What a difference!

December 27, 2011

The animal communicator was consulted for one more conversation. We wanted to know where she wanted to live and what she would like to be called.

Prissy is looking for a new home

December 5, 2011

In October, a trucker was killed in a freak, but fiery crash on I-10 in Houston. This man was the son-in-law of Prissy’s owner. Her owner’s daughter was a couple months pregnant with their second child at the time. She is due to give birth in April and Prissy’s owner plans to be there with her, staying for a while.

Sadly, these are signs of our times

“She says that some folks had her and she got out. She says be careful. After you get her pretty, they will show up and want her back, but they cannot care for her properly.”

Touched by a small angel

September 22, 2011

For a couple weeks quieted away from the world, we shared a marvelous time and I shall never forget how the personality of this tiny tyke changed into such a sweet, loving and giving guy. How happy he was.

Paralysis doesn’t slow Duke down; but now he needs a home!

September 18, 2011

Duke used to live out in the country where he had a doggy door so he could go outside as needed. One day last summer, his owner found him laying on the doorstep unable to move. His vet believes that Duke was attacked by a coyote; that he was given the “death shake” that injured his spine. But somehow Duke managed to get away and make it home before the swelling to his spine made that impossible.

A Foreclosure Dog Named Abby

September 16, 2011

Abby’s people lost their home due to foreclosure and loss of jobs. They had to give up Abby and her 3 cat companions. Abby has been moved around a lot during the last couple months. She is very sweet and loving, but is confused about what is going on.

Postcards from Faith

August 8, 2011

  On Thursday, Faith took a flight from Ontario to Calgary. She overnighted there and the next day, she made the rest of her journey by truck to BC. We received these photos of Faith as she arrived in BC on Friday afternoon. She loves road trips and loved the BC countryside. In what has […]

Faith restored; kudos to Brantford SPCA

July 30, 2011

In a quick post to everyone who has been tracking the story of our little canine heroine, Faith, I want to spotlight the efforts of a group that should be heralded: the management and staff at the Brantford SPCA! I think that we are often guilty of painting everyone with the same brush when they […]

When rescue turns to search for Faith…

July 27, 2011

We received this message from Kalena’s husband this morning and so we turn our energies from rescuing Faith back into the family she saved to finding her a home outside the utterly unfathomable idiocy of Ontario’s BSL. Perhaps by saving this woman’s life, Faith was actually saving her own. Having even the appearance of what […]

Keeping Faith

July 26, 2011

If you were in a life-or-death situation and someone came to your rescue, would you turn them away because of how they looked? Or would you be grateful for the kindness of a stranger to risk their life to save yours? And what if you could help them in return? Maybe your lives were meant […]

Can you help us return a stolen dog?

July 7, 2011

In May 2010, Missy was stolen from her owner’s car in Tucson when they stopped at a gas station to ask for directions. In the more than a year that has past, her owner, Amber, has not stopped looking for her.

Got Room? …for a street dog?

June 29, 2011

About eight weeks ago, Boomer was spotted walking down the street near North Main and I-45 in north Houston following a man who appeared homeless. A very pregnant woman just a couple weeks shy of giving birth stopped and asked the man about the dog. The man said he was taking Boomer to a friend who had a room to see if the friend could keep Boomer. The next day, the man appeared again with Boomer in tow. His friend was unable to keep Boomer and neither was he. He asked Marcia to please find him a good home.

End of Days

April 20, 2011

I want someone who loves me there, not a doctor with forty patients and his morality to keep me sort of, kind of alive or sort of undead. Why are we more rational and kinder to our pets than to ourselves or our parents? Death is not the worst thing; denying it can be.
