FLIGHT DELAYS – AIRLINE STRIKE
We are frustrated as our adopters who are waiting for their pups to arrive and ask for their patience while the airlines sorts things out. Hopefully, we will be able to find other passengers flying with KLM.
URGENT – FOSTER HOMES NEEDED
Please consider applying to foster a dog especially a dog that needs a little bit of extra.
Without our supporters and adopters, most of these dogs would live short, difficult lives, each new day a challenge to find enough food to stay alive while trying to avoid people intent on torturing or killing them. The lucky ones are rescued, restored to health and rehabilitated by compassionate individuals who then reach out to rescues in Canada for help finding them loving homes.
All of the dogs are treated for any known injuries and illnesses and are micro-chipped and vaccinated. Any dogs eight months of age or older will also have been spayed or neutered (or identified). Many of them will have a missing limb that had to be amputated to save their lives. When they are ready to travel and a foster or adoptive home has been found for them, they are flown to Vancouver, BC to start their new and much improved lives.
Dogs from Mexico might not be micro-chipped but we are able to provide the chip for you to arrange for your vet to insert.
Unless identified, none of the dogs are in BC and still need to be transported here. We do not have a shelter and so will not bring dogs that do not have an approved home.
TOBY – ARRIVED AND READY TO GO TO HIS NEW HOME
Hello, I’m Toby. I’m a gorgeous and affectionate 11 month old male mixed breed pup. My rescuer believes I am part Labrador and Anatolian Shepherd. It is hard to tell my breed as I have a very unique and handsome teddy bear face. I would love for you to check out my profile on the Meet the Dogs page.
Hello, I’m Koala Bear (K.B. for short). I’m a super cute small mixed breed pup. I’m vision impaired but it doesn’t stop me from being a loveable and affectionate companion. I can’t wait to meet you! Please find out more about me on my profile (see Meet the Dogs page).
HELP WANTED – VOLUNTEERS
We take great pride in taking great care in selecting homes for our dogs, for adoption and for foster homes. It takes a large team to ensure all adoption applications are carefully screened to ensure the best match for each and every adoption. We are always in need of new volunteers to help with various tasks.
HOME VISITS: At present we are most in need of volunteers to perform home visits. In particular we are actively looking for individuals to assist with the Vancouver area.
PHONE INTERVIEWERS: We are also in need of phone interviewers to interview applicants.
For all new volunteers we ensure that more experienced volunteers are available to support you with training, review of interview & home visit scripts and for all questions along the way. Your level of commitment can be as little as 1-2 phone interviews per week.
If either of these volunteer opportunities sound like something you are interested in helping with, please contact us at via the CONTACT page of this website.
