Weekly Rescue Round-up: February 13, 2012

Welcome to our Weekly Rescue Round-up where we update you on all the rescue happenings within LOYAL! Thanks for stopping by the blog, and be sure to share or like this on Facebook and tweet about it, too! Spread the LOYAL love!

Vet bills to-date for Max the Doberman-x have reached $1,500! Please read Max's story here and please donate if you are able. Every dollar counts! Please spread the word about this brave pooch!

Ariel the Havanese came into rescue this past weekend. She is only 2 years of age and has cataracts in both eyes. We are raising funds to get her to an Ophthalmologist for a consultation and then, hopefully, cataract surgery which can range from $3,000 - $5,000!

Any and all donations for the above pooches, and for any of our foster dogs, are greatly appreciated. Information on how you can donate can be found above under the Donate tab, or you can send us an e-mail.
LOYAL Rescue participated in a PetSmart Adopt-a-Thon in Brampton this weekend. Sweet little Doodle the Poodle attended with human helper Ewan to strut his stuff and represent LOYAL. 
Hopefully Doodle generated some much-needed interest in the rescue (and himself)! The next Adopt-a-Thon is taking in Toronto over the May 4-5 weekend. Stay tuned for details!
A new Helping Lost Pets Click Challenge has begun! 
LOYAL is in the running to win $1,000 for our rescued dogs! All you have to do is register on the Helping Lost Pets website and then vote daily.  Simple! Your computer will remember your vote, so daily voting is simple! Please share this opportunity far and wide and get as many people voting as you can so that we can win these much-needed funds for our dogs! You can vote until February 19, 2012.

Are you one of the 500+ fans that has liked our Facebook page? Do you follow our posts on Twitter? Sometimes we post photos and information on these pages that doesn't make it onto the blog, so if you want to stay up-to-date on all of LOYAL's happenings, be sure to tune in!

Due to the recent closing of a Missouri breeding facility and a number of dogs arriving from Mexico, LOYAL has taken in a high number of dogs in the last week. We currently have dogs of all breeds, mixes, ages, sizes and personalities in our foster program. Please visit our website to view these adoptable dogs, and stay tuned as more dogs are arriving and being posted to Petfinder by the day.

The following dogs found their forever families since the last Round-up:

Pearl, Tacoma, Pippin, Isabella, Benji, Carter, and Zorro!

Congratulations to all the adopted pooches and their new forever families!

Are you a previous LOYAL adopter that has a Happy Tail to submit? Send an e-mail to our Social Media Coordinator and it will be posted in our Happy Tails Facebook album!

As always, any and all rescue and adoption-related questions can be submitted via e-mail to one of our volunteers.
Happy adopting!

  1. Which Brampton Petsmart will Doodle be? The one at Steeles or the one at Airport Rd?
