It’s been a slow couple of months with but a few adoptions, but not a lot of dogs coming in either. Thank you to the staff at Peak Café Bar for being so accommodating, and thank you also to our lovely volunteers, without whom we wouldn’t be able to do what we do so well!
We were lucky and did manage to home some of our gorgeous dogs. So who were they?
Ulla – This delightful puppy was the star of the adoption day. She had so many offers to foster her, however it was a home we wanted! That did of course happen, and not long after. Thank you Colin & Leah for letting her steal your hearts and home forever.
Nemo – He was surrendered due to an allergy problem, and he was a little overweight, plus we were told he didn’t really like to go out. No surprise here, he does in fact love to go out, and his new family take him everywhere with them. He is truly spoilt and is always outdoors – on the beach, at restaurants, and parks. He’s lost his extra pounds and he’s a very happy chappy!
Umbro – He was very lucky to have ended up with us, but that's another story. He found a truly great home and by the end of the year he’ll be in Canada yay! Where he’ll no doubt continue to drive mum and dad mad with his fussy eating and endless pleas for belly rubs. Heartworm free and as happy as can be.
Saki – Saki had a poor start to life, she was abandoned by her family and left with the helper who thankfully took it upon herself to care for her. We helped find her a home by having her at our adoption days where one of our fosters took a shine to her and off she went to a real home. Way to go Saki!
Vince – Vince is quite possibly one of the most beautiful mixed breeds I’ve ever seen, with the best shaggy hair. He was hit by a car when he was very young and the sole survivor. Though it took surgery and time for him to fully receover. Apart from his slight limp you'd never know. He landed a home back where he started – well, with the sister of the “owner” – and we know this time it really will be forever.
Who is most in need right now?
Unfortunately, we have a few foster homes coming to an end, and a couple of dogs in a private kennel, so if you can help please let us know asap or fill in our foster form here.
Salvadore – On or by the 7th May. He is a gentle giant, funny, playful and sweet. Once he knows you and earns your trust, he will be the most loyal, loving dog.
Jessie – On or by the morning of the 8th May. Jessie doesn't like loud noises, she gets a bit scared, however she makes up for it by being very low-maintenance and easy. She loves her walks and once she knows you she is a great companion.
Stan – By the middle of may. He's come such a long way since last year; his seizures have dramatically reduced in frequency, and he can be left alone without any problems. He’s a great little Corgi with love to give and he's happy to receive plenty.
Harriet & Crystal – While these two don’t necessarily need to stay together, it would certainly benefit them and us if they did. We need a foster for them by the end of May. They are funny companions, and as long as they get their walks and food, there will be no complaints from them! They are affectionate but in quite a different way - kisses from Crystal, and demands for head pats from Harriet.
Volvo - We are desperately looking for a person or people who can handle a large, rambunctious puppy with a ton of energy. He needs some training, let's face it, all puppies do, however as he's 17kg already it's more important and preferably needs to be started before he gets much bigger. We can of course assist here, but without the stability of a foster/a home it's impossible. On a positive note he's completely toilet-trained, loves to kiss and cuddle, oh and sit on you if he gets the chance.
Lady - She is still in private kennels, which she hates, as she is alone for 23 hours a day. She's good with other dogs and loves attention and cuddles. She's a young, healthy girl, who enjoys lots of exercise, something she's not getting now in kennels!
Who else is still looking for a forever home? Sisi, Toby, Gene, Mary, Jaga, Kara, Paige & Ulric! If you’d like to adopt any of our dogs, please do fill in the adoption form here, and we can certainly arrange for you to meet them. Or stop by our next adoption event on the 13th April!
