Dogs for Adoption

Last updated November 18th, 2017

You may notice that in most cases our dogs are not labelled as a particular breed but rather as “mixed breed”. This is because visual breed identification in dogs is unreliable, so for most of our dogs we are only guessing a predominant breed or breed mix. We would prefer that you are able to select your new companion by considering each dog’s individual personality and pet qualities instead of relying on a breed label that is only a guess.

All of our animals are sterilized before adoption.

Ducky

Breed: Mixed Breed Sex: Female Age: 4 Months

Ducky is one special girl! Ducky came to us at a very young age, unable to use her hind legs- she is paralyzed. But nobody told Ducky that, and day by day she became stronger and stronger until her muscles retrained themselves to walk! Her condition is known as “spinal walking”. This little girl has captured the hearts of volunteers and staff with her fighting spirit and beautiful personality. Ducky adores playing with other dogs and cats and loves a good play session followed by belly rubs and kisses. She enjoys short leash walks and mentally-stimulating brain games. Do you have the perfect home for Ducky? Come meet her today!

Ducky is available for the Special Needs adoption fee of $125.

Ducky is in Foster Care, please call 403-932-2072 ext. 113 to make an appointment to meet her.

Maisy

Adopted 2016

Maisy is doing wonderful (we kept her name since I thought it suited her). She is such a sweet-natured girl, and loves cuddles and belly rubs! She is starting to purr now when she is happy and around my boyfriend and I. The only time I’ve ever heard her meow though, was when we took her to the vet. Other than that, she doesn’t make a sound. I thought it was a little strange because I’ve always had chatty cats growing up, but I guess that’s just how Maisy is!
We could not have found a better cat to fit into our lives. Thank you so much once again.

Meet. Adopt. Love.
