Spring is in the air, folks! We hope you got out this lovely weekend and enjoyed some fresh air and a nice romp through the mud.
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!
Please watch for a LOYAL foster dog and rescue representative on CP24's Morning Show (that's ch.24 for you GTA folks) this Friday, March 15, 2012 between 8:45 and 9:00 a.m. Buster will be strutting his stuff on the show and representing his fellow foster dogs!
Are you one of the almost 700 LOYAL 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!
The below dogs are new to rescue this week. We have dogs arriving weekly, so please keep an eye on our website for new additions.
Thanks to the our dedicated, hard-working volunteers and foster homes, and to a number of volunteer drivers across both the U.S. and Ontario, LOYAL took a number of dogs from various Missouri breeding facilities this weekend. These dogs have now begun their new lives in Canada, and their bios will begin popping up on our website over the next few days and weeks. If you would like to donate to our very worthy cause and continue helping us do the things that we do every day, please visit our Donate page for more information. Thank you, as always, for your generous support!
Buster is a 5-month-old, male Yorkie who came to us from a shelter in Kentucky where he was surrendered by his owners through no fault of his own. He is a spunky, happy puppy who would do well in an active home where someone is home during the day to teach him all about manners, house training and leash skills. Buster gets along with dogs and kids, and would likely be fine with patient cats, though may need to be taught not to chase them (in play). Buster is being fostered in Mississauga.
**Buster will be appearing on CP24's Morning Show this Friday between 8:45 a.m. and 9:00 a.m. Please tune in to channel 24 in the GTA to see Buster in action!**
Pearl is a 6-year-old, female Maltese who grew up in a breeding facility in Missouri, and who is a brand new Canadian citizen. This shy, timid girl is very friendly and affectionate, and she gets along well with other dogs. She is learning what life is like in a home environment, and house training and walking on a leash are works-in-progress. Pearl would do best in a quiet, adult-only home where she could spend her days lounging on dog beds and generally being pampered. She is being fostered in Mississauga.
All of the above dogs, as well as every dog on our website, are up-to-date on their shots, heart worm tested and, in the case of adult and senior dogs, are spayed and neutered unless a medical reason prevents it. Puppies may or may not be spayed/neutered depending on age. Applications can be submitted through our website. Please be sure to note the dog's name and unique number (e.g., 1167) after their name are on your application to avoid any confusion or delays.
We can do what we do because of the wonderful volunteers - phone interviewers, home visitors, foster homes, transporters, event organizers, etc. - that work within our organization. If you are interested in learning more about how you can get involved with LOYAL, or are interested in becoming a foster parent to a special rescued dog, please contact us. The more help we have, the more dogs we can save! You may not be paid for your work, but you will be rewarded in kind with sloppy dog kisses and warm cuddles. Priceless!
Peaches, Gracie and Angel found their forever homes this week. Congratulations to them and to their new families!
Adoptions are currently pending for Afina, Anastasia, Pebbles and Coco. We are no longer accepting applications for these dogs; thank you for your interest!
Are you a LOYAL adopter that has a Happy Tail to submit? Send your story and a photo to our Social Media and Marketing Coordinator and we will add it to our Happy Tails Facebook album.
As always, and and all rescue and adoption-related questions can be sent to one of our volunteers who will be in touch as soon as possible with a response. Thank you for your patience!
