This female silver Toy Poodle mix is mini size-- only 6 pounds-- and about 3 years old, born February 19, 2012. She is sterilized and vaccinated, all done up to date. Because of her size, NO other pets, NO small children, and ONLY a kind and patient adult family, preferably someone already familiar with the fears of a very small dog. She had been abandoned by her owner, so this dear little girl is very nervous, She needs to be babied with all that has happened to her, she is NOT a social butterfly! Becomes a bundle of aggressive Little Dog Syndrome if on leash around bigger dogs, in ready defence of her person. Would snap at a stranger trying to pet her, again fear because of her size. She does not bark but sometimes has a high pitched howl, somewhat like a doggie opera singer, instead! NO apartment or condo for Sadie! She is pee pad trained but will go outside but can never be out alone, she is fearful of the big bad world out there. She needs a protector type who will understand her doggy fears and will shelter her from them. She has had a hard time in her short life and needs reassurance.
Have YOU what Sadie needs to give her confidence in humans again?

  Brody - adoption pending  

A handsome 4 year old male Golden Retriever, BRODY had been picked up as a stray and never claimed.  He is a happy go lucky boy, with a winning personality.  Gets along well with other dogs and is sociable with people.  Neutered, vaccinated, etc. Brody is a nice size Golden, and easily trainable.  He is very intelligent and a quick learner.  He LOVES walks on leash, and travels well in the car.  Gives the paw for a treat!

  Bertha - adoption pending  

This 7 year old female mini Schnauzer is so deserving of a new home.  Her sister was re-homed by the owner and Bertha is up for adoption.  She has a lovely nature, not a mean bone in her.  She loves her walks and to be cuddled, VERY affectionate.  Good with other friendly small dogs like herself, may even accept a cat.  Bertha is on a special food for the rest of her life.  She likes the car and her walkies.  Tho not in extreme cold!  She displays her smiling face which is so BEAUTIFUL, and all she wants is acceptance and affection and a FOREVER home that will keep her safe and treasured.


This adorable mix of Husky and German Shepherd is 3 months old.  A female, she will be spayed under Gerdy’s Rescues as well as have all her puppy vaccines, she is dewormed.  Sweetie is not only an adorable pup, but is highly intelligent, she is already trained on some commands, and a puppy training class can only add to her social skills as well as teach her how to walk on leash.  Being a puppy, she does not deserve to be left in a crate all day while her people work, someone at home is what she needs who will give her the attention a pup craves, playtimes and naptimes—she is still a baby.  Very friendly she needs to continue to be socialized.  She likely will be a larger dog when grown.  She lives up to her name, a beautiful girl in body and soul who is looking for a forever home.


Mr Lonely Heart

A combo of Black Lab & Chow, about 7 years old.  Neutered, vaccinated, I am healthy.  I choose my dog friends but want a home where I will be the ONLY
PET. I LOVE ALL PEOPLE! So affectionate, quite obedient, I LOVE walks! I LOVE to be noticed and talked to. I am SO LONELY! I am looking for a retired person or couple to love me back! I desperately need a home, I have waited SO LONG, but no one wants me I guess because of my age, but I am good for another number of years people, I am a YOUNG senior! And I LOVE to be fussed over! I have lost a lot of my overweight too, I am really trying to get to my ideal weight, will you help me to achieve my goals--a new slimmer me and a NEW HOME of my own FOREVER?


This sweet and adorable pure Basset boy is 20 months old and  was a impulse buy in a pet store. Then they realized that training a puppy was a LOT bigger job than they realized, so dumped him.

Benjamin is a tri-color Basset, housetrained. He was neutered and vaccinated. A BASSET FAMILIAR FAMILY with PATIENCE will be sought for this exceptional boy, not often we get a young Basset and he is a real sweetie! Someone who is HOME daily as well as he can’t be left alone for a whole working day in a crate or loose.

He is very smart, and loves other dogs, likely would learn to not mess with a cat! BUT it is best he is the ONLY pet in the house, as Benjamin has had surgery on a front leg that was not formed properly, and he is not encouraged to jump! However he can walk well and should be to keep his muscles fit in the surgery area. No hard running, just a nice walking pace for you and Benjamin.

He is a normal Basset in every other way, LOVES to sleep in his crate when you are not home, and loves then to have a KONG packed with kibble to keep him busy! Benjamin loves food like all hounds so needs to be watched in the kitchen!

A natural clown, Benjamin can also settle down for a snuggle and watch tv with you! He has a LOT of spots and is really handsome, and a charmer! 


No, unfortunately I am not a Scottish Fold cat.  I am a Winter Frozen Cat, I almost died then but was headed to certain death as I was found as a stray and taken to a gassing pound.  Lucky for me there were people trying to save animals going down, and got word of me to Gerdy, who took me into her rescue.
My ears were badly frozen & I lost the ends so I might look strange, but as a true Survivor, I am kinda proud of my badge of survival!  You can tell my story to educate people not to toss an animal into the elements to die a painful death.  Now, I was once a cat with a home, but I guess they put me out one day and shut the door behind me and pretended they weren’t home to hear my desperate yowls to get back inside to the warmth. 
To make things worse for me, I am about 7 years old.   I am VERY LOVING but I am uncomfortable around other cats, they think I was chased  when I was a stray, by other cats, so they scare me.  But I love people, getting cuddled.  No kids please or other pets, Gerdy feels I need to be fussed over to make up for all that has happened to me. 

Is there someone retired or anyone wanting to give me a peaceful and calm life?  I am healthy, vaccinated and spayed. A  female Domestic Shorthair, I am a black bearded lady with white.  PLEASE help me get my FOREVER home, a warm spot in the sun would be luxury to me!


That's what Gerdy's named me.  Someone dumped me on the south shore, and I was seen wandering for at least 2 week outdoors.  A kind woman tried to help me, but I was too wary to go to her and frightened. Finally I was at a pound, I was skinny and weak from this ordeal outdoors, I would have been euthanized as I was not in good shape at all when Gerdy called them, but I was released to the care of Gerdy's.  

The vet thinks I am 5-6 years old. I have a very bad ear infection being treated at present as well as a skin problem also being treated BUT I am otherwise in good health.  I will be neutered as soon as Gerdy can get it done when I am ready, also my vaccines.

I am heartworm tested negative.  I am on the small size for a GSD, they think I might have been a runt, but who knows?  I am 70 pounds and underweight. But I am SO good natured even though I don't understand what happened to me.  

I am now with people I trust and my broken heart is healing nicely. I am MUCH better looking than when I was helplessly wandering, getting good food and the best of care.  Thank you Gerdy donors. This is where your donations are going, right where NEEDED the most!


Checkers, now about 3 years old, was fed as a stray kitten outside by Gerdy’s Aunt. Eventually, he was caught, neutered, vaccinated, dewormed, and defleaed, so he could have a chance at life as an indoor cat. 

Checkers would do really well in an adult home where he could just be allowed to be himself, study his situation, and build trust—each has great potential, and just needs a chance! 

It would help if he was the only pet in the house, but Checkers does get along with other cats.  In his foster home, Checkers is learning that life inside is much better than in the streets! 

Checkers is just glad to be taken indoors out of the cold so just a bit of PATIENCE on your part will make all the difference!


A tricolor BEAGLE , this boy was born April 15, 2009—5 years old.  Schnitz was abandoned by his family, and is a dear boy.  He is vaccinated and is heartworm tested negative.

Schnitz travels VERY WELL in the car, he feels so secure travelling safely in a crate in the car that he goes to sleep in no time! A very good natured, confident dog! He needs some work on leash obedience training.

Also for a Beagle, a securely FENCED IN YARD is mandatory, as if loose they follow their nose for miles. Schnitz is a  great size for teens in the family. He is a smiling dog, very sociable, kind eyes. He is in good health and his age is young for a long lived breed.

He is not a big barker. A truly loving companion who deserves a home to call his own!

Apply ONLY to Huguette Bourret:

This beautiful green-eyed white cat wants to be the only cat in the home, but with humans she is extraordinary, very soft and affectionate. She will follow you around the house and will snuggle up to watch tv on your knee. Negative for FIV/FelV, vaccinated and dewormed, no fleas, and spayed. Born June 18, 2013 and has her claws, but does not destroy as her nails were clipped regularly and she had a scratching post. Will tolerate a big and calm dog, but not small dogs nor excited big dogs, likely not small children who scare her. Cashmere had a sad start to her life, she was found wandering the streets at age about 6 months, frozen, starved and pregnant. Cashmere never accepted the cat already in her home and that is why she sadly has to be rehomed now. She’d just love a quiet surroundings after all she has been through!



I am a sweet ShihTzu girl 3 years old. I was given up by my owners because I barked and neighbours complained. If you have a house, and not an apartment or condo, then we should be ok! But I am a little DOLL of a lady and very nice, I love everyone! I am spayed, vaccinated and all set to go. I love attention! And am playful!


He came to us with 2 unwanted dogs, born October 15, 2013. A beautiful male, he is very handsome and loves affection. Devlyn is a neutered male, vaccinated, tested negative for FIV and FelV, all set to go to an appreciative new home, a real "looker" of a cat and so deserving of a break in life.


Found as a stray on the street, Rust is a very sweet natured and super affectionate male domestic semi- longhair tabby cat. Vet estimated date of birth April 26, 2014. Rust has been neutered, tested negative for FIV/FelV, dewormed and vaccinated. A beautiful boy!


Here I am as a sad case, brought to Gerdy’s care as a stray cat with frozen feet. This is what happens to a stray in winter weather with no warm home to go to.
I am about 4 years old, estimated birth date December 2010 and I weighed 10 ½ pounds when I was brought in. I am a Domestic Shorthair male. To add to my troubles, I was found to be FIV positive. I can still comfortably live in a home with another FIV cat, I am doing good, it was just my feet being frozen that bothered me. Now my bandages are all off and I am much happier, neutered too! I am a NICE cat!

Do you have a warm heart I can warm my cold feet with in future, safe and loved?

  Kenny - adoption pending  

Kenny is a DARLING boy, 1 ½ years old. He was with his family since a puppy but they were expecting a baby so this sweet dog suddenly had to go, they had no time for him anymore! He looked SO lost and bewildered when we went to get him, he was so scared. He snuggled beside Gerdy as she drove him to the vet. He was never vetted so he will be sterilized under Gerdy’s Rescues. He is now vaccinated, heartworm tested negative, etc. We think he is a Husky/Golden Retriever Mix, but whatever, he presents one ear up & one down, so cute! He is about 48 pounds. We found him good with other dogs waiting to see the vet. Needs loving reassurance, you can do that easily!


This sweet natured mix of Beagle/Basset Hound is 4 years old, friendly with people, other dogs, and is HOUSETRAINED. She is sterilized and vaccinated.
No cats please, she gets too excited, not having lived with cats before. She needs a house with a securely fenced back yard. She cannot be allowed loose as hounds such as Beagles and Bassets have a strong sense of smell and can disappear quickly following a scent. So leash walks only! She was given up only because the family dog was jealous of her as a second dog in the family and would not accept her, the family loved her and were disappointed but contacted Gerdy to take her over. Charlotte LOVES the car and rides like a princess, quiet and regal!

  Lady & Max (bonded pair)

contact ONLY the SPCA Annexe:


Milou is a 9 year-old, 12 lb, Jack Russell/Corgi mix. He was transferred to the SPCA from another pound where he was brought in as a stray. He arrived with an eye condition in his left eye, which we treated for weeks but it never healed. He had to wear a cone on his head for almost a month! The best decision for his health was to remove his eye. Only hours after his surgery he was walking around like nothing ever happened! He is happy as a lark now, no more cone!!! He is super friendly with all the other small dogs, loves to be cuddled and loves his walks.
As is evident in his chubbiness, he is motivated by food and easy to teach new things. Being a senior and one-eyed, finding a forever home for him may be a bit more challenging. If you are interested in this adorable little guy, contact the Annexe


MINNIE is about a year old, a young mother, likely Roly (below) is her only surviving kitten. They were outside together, abandoned, in the cold. Roly was about 3 weeks old at the time, when taken in by a kind woman who called Gerdy. Minnie was vaccinated and sterilized by Gerdy’s. But Minnie is tired of the stress of keeping a kitten alive in the cold so has sworn off even being around other cats! Minnie is a Domestic Shorthair, and is looking for a quiet home where she can just relax for a change! She is an affectionate cat.

  Roly - adoption pending  

ROLY kitten will be placed in a SEPARATE home because mom (Minnie above) would prefer to be the only cat! Roly is a very social butterfly around other cats, and is about 8 weeks old. Had his kitten vaccines and will be sterilized under Gerdy’s Rescues when old enough. Socialized, nicely playful! This boy is a ball of fur, cannot tell if shorthair or long right now.

  Maggie - adoption pending  

This gentle and sweet natured girl Basset Hound tricolor is now 7 years old, born January 12 2007, and was returned to Gerdy's recently as they had no more time for her. Maggie is a real good dog around children and adults and sociable as is the nature of the Basset. She needs a fence as Bassets tend to follow their nose and will wander off. Maggie can be in her crate when you are not home, loves her walks, and spending her down time with the family. Maggie would likely accept another dog or cat, ESPECIALLY another Basset! She is a smaller built Basset, loves the car, and lots of attention!

  Abi (formerly Maggie)  

Abi is a 4 year and half old husky mix, 45 pounds with beautiful blue eyes. She is very sweet and affectionate, and would love nothing more than to spend her days with a companion. She will cuddle beside you when you watch TV or sleep. She loves running and going for a long walk. Very smart and obedient, she is great in the car, loves sitting in the back and watches outside. She is also good with kids, even young babies. Abi is a talker, not a barker. She will let you know when she is hungry in the morning and she is all happy after being fed. She is neutered, vaccinated, heartworm tested negative, dewormed & vet checked. Abi needs someone who has time to give her the attention & interaction she deserves. Originally saved from a pound as a stray. No cats or small dogs in the home please.

I am a black and white adorable male, neutered cat, 1-1 1/2 years old. I had all of my shots and a clean bill of health. I was abandoned recently and suffered a great deal. When you first see me I am a little afraid but within a short space of time I will allow you to stroke me if you are gentle. I am looking for a loving couple that will give me the nurturing and love that I have not had in a long time. I sleep in my bed or yours and love to play.
You will adore me at first sight, and all I look for is a couple or a family to be a part of again. I need a family to love! An affectionate human hand to make me belong once more. I will never let you down!


MEET MR. HANDSOME! Rudy needs experienced German Shepherd people because he is VERY SMART and needs a strong leader of an owner who will balance discipline with love, and who is interested in working on his prey drive and working on socializing him with other dogs. Ideally by some private training lessons to start, someone strong, as he reacts when he sees other dogs while out walking or at the vet, it needs to be established whether it is excitement or an aggression. This 6 year old neutered & vaccinated German Shepherd, was found wandering around the Plateau, he was brought to the SPCA and never claimed. Gerdy’s has taken him under our wing. He would need to be the ONLY pet so he can have the love of the home completely to himself as he has so much love to give and would give lots of attention in return. Rudy needs someone ideally who works from home and is home often. He wants to be around his people, not shut in a crate that he will break out of in fright.. He loves to play fetch and soccer, loves his walks and needs a lot of exercise. He is a lover boy, who adores his cuddles. Having been abandoned he does suffer from separation anxiety at least at the beginning and would be happiest if his person/people spent a lot of time at home. He does not want to be relegated by himself to be alone in the back yard! A house with a fenced-in yard would be ideal. Kids 13+.. Rudy is neutered & vaccinated. Rudy’s PERSONALITY is that of a smart, sensitive dog. He is actually looking for that strong minded, confident, and loving owner who will balance discipline and love. Rudy is a PEOPLE PLEASER and REALLY wants to make his owners happy, so he is EASILY TRAINED and bad behaviours are easily adjusted. He wants to work hard! So loves his training sessions! Needs someone who will work consistently on his current skills (walking, sitting, staying, waiting, watch me (for his focus) and give him a shot at socialising and REALLY gets his prey drive under control—if that can be accomplished, someone is going to have THE PERFECT DOG!

  Nicky - adoption pending  

This little Terrier Mix girl is 12 pounds, spayed and vaccinated. Bought in a pet shop, she was kept in a cage in an unfinished basement, alone. She was let out once in the morning and once at night, and only on the deck where sometimes she was forgotten outside in freezing weather. No walks. Then she was given up to Gerdy’s Rescues.

Nicky is a busy little bee! Very affectionate, LOVES a good chew toy to work on, she LOVES to chew! Needs exercise to help her sleep a full night. This is a dog who needs the presence of playful kids! Barks if someone is at the door but not in excess, curious but respectful. Given a chance, Nicky will use a chair to get up on the kitchen table to see what’s cooking! She will help is she can. She understands what no means and listens. She LOVES to be close to her humans, and to cuddle being held in their arms. We suggest she be the only pet as she missed out on so much as a puppy. Nicky still needs guidance on obedience training and is pee pad trained but will go outside.

She does not like to be crated because of her past unpleasant experience. Maybe she can be crate trained with kindness, leaving the door open during the day. Nicky is a young dog of about 1 ½ years and in good general health. A very bright little girl, Nicky is IDEAL for AGILITY training and would enjoy the activity so much!

Maya is a long-haired tabby who was rescued from the streets as a young cat. She has lived with the same owner for four years, and now, sadly, must be given up since her owner is moving into a seniors' residence.

Maya is sterilized, and all her shots are up to date. She is affectionate and companionable, but a little nervous around children and other animals. She is about six years old, and would do best in a quiet, stable household.

She loves to be petted and brushed, and is very vocal! Can you find a place in your heart and home for Maya?
