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

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

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 […]

Why shelters kill animals in their care

July 16, 2011

This is a partial list that is being circulating around showing some of the reasons an animal may be killed in one of our kill shelters. In my opinion, it is simply a list of excuses for the purpose of either easing someone’s guilt about taking a life or granting them a pardon for their laziness.
