DOGS for ADOPTION     [CATS & OTHERS BELOW]
 
  CeeCee  
     
   

WE ARE NOW READY TO SHARE THE LOVE!

Just before midnight, December 30, 2016, CeeCee was found between the double doors of an apartment building. She was emaciated, a skeleton really, and she couldn’t stand up. Gerdy’s received a call asking for help.

Our options were limited at this hour of the night. The person who found her felt that because CeeCee seemed happy, despite her state, she felt that she could hold onto her until the morning. She was brought to one of our vets first thing the following day.

The vets started a thorough examination and appraisal of her condition. She was starved, weak, dehydrated and highly anaemic. She hadn’t eaten in a very long time. She needed blood transfusions. She weighed 19 lbs, and the vets estimated her to be at least a 40-45 lb. dog. She appeared to have had many litters.

She was set up in a run with a plush dog sofa and was swaddled in fleece blankets. It would be a long journey to nurse this wonder girl back to health. Unable to stand, CeeCee held court from her throne and shared the love with incessant kisses to everyone that came to visit. Sweeter than sugar CeeCee won the hearts of the vets and the vet staff, and Gerdys volunteers. 

As of today CeeCee has gained 20 lbs, is walking, running, playing and is a very happy and grateful dog. We are now ready to share CeeCee with some wonderful family. She is ready for adoption and will need to find a home off-island where there is no pitbull ban.

OK with kids, cats, dogs. Sterilized and fully vaccinated.

  Hendrix  
     
   

JUST IN FROM THE GREAT WHTE NORTH

A kind soul who was leaving Nunavik returning to her home in Montreal, made an on-the-spot decision to help out this 2 year-old, 57 lb beauty, who had an injured paw.

He needed veterinary attention and she knew that he would not receive it anytime soon up north. So, on the plane he came and was treated for an infection and fully vetted. The woman reached out to Gerdy to help him find his forever home, as she travels back and forth to the North and couldn’t consider adopting him.

Hendrix adapted quickly to Montreal and cushy living these past few weeks. He is sweet, smart, and learns quickly. He has met 2 little dogs and gets along well with them. He has just learned to walk on a leash and is doing amazingly well.

Hendrix would be best in a home with a securely fenced in yard with someone active and home part of the time. Kids 14 plus. No cats. He is neutered, housetrained and up to date on vaccines.

If interested, please only send emails to info@gerdysrescue.org

   
     
  Georgette - Adoption Pending  
     
   

GEORGIE GIRL

Georgette’s owner loved her very much but due to moving far away from Montreal was unable to take her with him. She is a lovely 3 year old lab (maybe flat-coat retriever mixed with lab).

Georgette is smart, knows all her commands and is gentle and affectionate. At first meeting she is  a bit anxious and when walking outside seems to be looking for her person. Once relaxed she is quick to cuddle, give kisses and to show off her tricks for more patting or for another treat.

Georgette is tall and slender and weighs approximately 60 lbs. Her best match would be either an active family or single with a flexible schedule, and preferably with a fenced yard. Kids 12 plus. Cats ok. Although Georgette is used to being someone’s one and only, another compatible dog may work.

If interested, please only send emails to info@gerdysrescue.org

   
     
  Tipper  
     
   

AN ALL AROUND GOOD GUY

Meet Tipper a lovely border collie x lab, seven years of age due to a divorce is being reluctantly surrendered. 

He is neutered with all vaccines up to date. He is obedience trained walks well on leash, loves to be as active or inactive as you want to be. Loves going in the car, swimming and playing ball.

Not a big barker only when the doorbell rings. He is friendly, affectionate and loves to be patted and near people. The kitchen is his favourite room of the house. He weighs approximately 55 lbs. and has a beautiful thick coat of hair when fully grown in so you must like grooming.

He is good when people are in the house but tends to get anxious and when left to himself, so he needs to be crated. Cat and small dog friendly, really an all around good guy.

  Otto  
     
   

OTTO, WELCOME TO CANADA!

Found starving on the streets of Kosovo months ago with a huge wound on his hip, a kind soul took Otto to a vet and a rescue group was contacted. Once healed they reached out to Gerdys and Otto was flown to Montreal.

Otto is a 3 year old, 55 lb. hound mix, as goofy as they come. He is friendly, affectionate and grateful to be here. Otto has integrated very well to his new Canadian life and we suspect that whoever adopts him will be very lucky.

He is good with dogs, still to be tested with cats and we recommend children 10+ as he is strong and full of beans. He is neutered, and up to date on his shots.

If interested, please only send emails to info@gerdysrescue.org

   
     
  Tammie  
     
   

IT’S BEEN A VERY ROUGH START FOR TAMMIE

This 2 year old, Husky/Golden Retriever mix was first abandoned when her owner took off down the 401 to Toronto---forever and left her to rot in the apartment. Luckily a neighbour took her in, but not exactly “in", as he didn’t believe that dogs should live inside the house. He built her a wooden box and she was confined there, on his balcony, for 7 months! He said that he took her out once in a while. Finally he realized that this was no life for her and he surrendered her to Gerdys.

Tammie is beautiful, charming, friendly, affectionate and full of beans-both a blessing and a curse. She appears happy and pro-social, she approaches everyone, but she is not without issues. She can be mistrustful, she can be protective of the one she’s with and has food possession around her food bowl. On the plus side, she walks beautifully on the leash, loves to play fetch and drops the ball on command. She is fast learner, and very smart. To-date we have introduced her to a few dogs and she was good and she has met a few cats without incident.

Tammie is currently being boarded and urgently needs out in order for us to have a clearer picture of her in a calm, stable environment. Tammie needs an adopter who is willing to put in the time and training as either a foster or potential adopter. Our wish is a home with an experienced person, who can work with a rewards-based trainer that we would supply to help in her education. No kids, and no other pets at home and a secure fenced in yard svp.

  Rocco  
     
   

THIS FLEA IS A REAL SWEET PEA

Meet Rocco, 6 years old, a cute long-haired Chihuahua, approximately 6 pounds. He is sweet and gentle, a real people lover! He can be a bit nervous in new situations but warms up pretty quickly. 

Rocco is easy to please, follows his foster dad everywhere and loves belly rubs. He is active, energetic and bouncy—he can jump really high! Rocco gets along well with cats and dogs, and has lived with children. His family was sad to have to give him up but their long work hours didn’t allow them to give him the time and loving that he craves.

He is pee pad trained, will be neutered and is up to date on vaccines. He is very unhappy being alone. A perfect fit for him would be someone who is home a lot or a family with flexible hours. No condos, apartments or duplexes please. Fenced-in yard a plus. Kids respectful of animals age 12 +.

If interested, please only send emails to info@gerdysrescue.org
   
     
  Nikita  
     
   

NIKI IS LOOKING FOR SECURITY

Abandoned twice through no fault of her own, Niki is Insecure and terrified of being let go yet again. She quickly attached herself to her new foster Mom, wanting cuddles and making her the entire focus.

She prefers women to men, tolerates cats but can live with them and ok with other small dogs in the house but so far hasn’t engaged in play. Niki isn’t a fan of being left alone, she whimpers and cries.

She loves being outside and loves to walk. She is good in the car. She is 4 1/2 years old and weighs 10 lbs., is up to date on vaccines and is spayed.

Niki’s ideal home would be a house vs. an apartment, a female owner with girls in the house and another small dog who is not too demanding of her.

If interested, please only send emails to info@gerdysrescue.org

   
     
  Maggie - Adoption Pending  
     
   

MAGGIE IS 9 YEARS YOUNG AND FULL OF LIFE

This very sweet, small Shih Tzu is affectionate, friendly and pretty easy to have around. Maggie was adopted by a young  couple who have a baby and with maternity leave over, have no time for the dog.

They adopted her only 7 months ago. She is good with the baby, good with easy dogs (as she can be timid around rowdy ones) and with independent cats that won’t bug her.

She likes her walks, loves all people and loves to cuddle. She is housetrained, even asks to go out and is quiet. She is vaccinated, sterilized and microchipped.

Maggie’s ideal home would be a family or person with a flexible schedule, who like to walk, have another quiet dog and calm kids 10+.

If interested, please only send emails to info@gerdysrescue.org

   
     
  Hunter  
     
   

YOUTH IS BEAUTIFUL

Meet Hunter, a very handsome 10 month old, 75 lb Husky whose family could no longer care for him. He is intelligent, affectionate and playful who, however, will require patient training as he is still very much in full puppy mode. 

In his exuberance, he tends to lunge while greeting adults, as well as jump and mouth excitedly while playing. While he does quite well walking on a lead, and is learning basic commands such as sit/stay/wait, he will require an experienced owner.

Because of his high energy, Hunter would not be suitable for apartment living, and would require a fenced in yard which would permit him a secure area. He would do best in an active family with a flexible schedule which would allow for the needed supervision and training of a high energy pet who has some anxiety issues if left alone. 

Due to his jumping and mouthing, he would not do well with younger children. Gerdy's is currently arranging additional training so that he will be better prepared for his new life when he meets his adoptive family, and obedience training should be ongoing for Hunter until he outgrows his youthful exuberance.

If you enjoy an active lifestyle which includes long walks or jogging and spending time nurturing canine relationships, Hunter will make a wonderful companion for many years to come. Kids 16+. Flexible schedule.

If interested, please only send emails to info@gerdysrescue.org

   
     
  Buster - Adoption Pending  
     
   

BUSTER IS A BIG BOY AND A BIG LOVE

This great big 5 year old boy, weighing in at 120 lbs., was rescued from an abusive situation.

We believe that Buster is a Golden Retriever/Great Pyrenees mix. Beautiful, affectionate but weary of small children as he was taunted in the home he came from.

A patient, experienced adult home is required. He will definitely need a diet along with a family who likes to walk and a with fenced in yard where he can burn off some calories. Kids 16 plus.

If interested, please only send emails to info@gerdysrescue.org

   
     
  Cush & Toby - Adoption Pending  
     
   

TOGETHER, FOREVER

Due to personal problems these 2 beautiful, bonded dogs were surrendered to Gerdys Rescue.

Cush is a 5 year old female, Shepherd/Rottie x, shy but very loving. Toby is a Bernese/Lab x approximately 5 years old. He is sweet, and although timid at first is very friendly.

Our hope is that they can live out their lives together. A home with a fenced in yard, adults only. They are neutered, vaccinated and ready for a better life than they have had.

If interested, please only send emails to info@gerdysrescue.org

   
     
  Gaston  
     
   

SPECIAL NEEDS GASTON REQUIRES A FOSTER TO ADOPT HOME ASAP

This adorable 3 year old, 9 lb. boy was found as a stray. He was adopted out to someone who had him for a year and recently had to move into a senior’s residence. The person had never realized that he was deaf, and simply thought that he was defiant. He lost a year of training to respond to hand signals, treats etc. 

Gaston is a fun loving little Bichon X who will need playful, capable, patient, respectful, and hard working parents. The house should be without close neighbors and should be stand alone as he can be vocal due to his hearing deficit.  

A quiet residential area would be good as Gaston is sensitive to vibrations from large trucks. A backyard to run around would suit Gaston well as he loves to play chase but it must be fenced with no gaps he can get through as he will look for them and may dig to enlarge one.

Gaston needs a house without young children (16 plus) and no young grand-children that will visit. His new owners should be ready to put in some hard work initially with training, (he is mostly housebroken). This may mean tethering most of the time at first as he does not crate well at the moment.  They should also be prepared to embark on a training journey with Gaston. A home that practices reward based training is a necessity, he is extremely smart and learns quickly.

Gaston is energetic but able to settle when his needs have been met. He would love someone active to go on long walks and play chase games in the yard. He is quite snuggly and affectionate if his person is respectful of his limits. He needs someone who is home most of the day. He would be fine as an only dog (he would be happy to soak up all the attention) or with a confident buddy.  

Only people who are serious about working with Gaston should inquire, to: info@gerdysrescue.org

Local requests only, in and around Montreal and suburbs.
   
     
  Sacha  
     
   

THIS CHRISTMAS WAS VERY SAD FOR SACHA

This beauty -a 2 year old English Lab - was recently the constant companion of an elderly gentleman who passed away before the holidays.

She spent the first days in her foster home looking to get back home to her owner. Now she has settled in and is enjoying her treasured long walks and even doing well with their 2 dogs.

She walks well on leash, loves to be active and loves to swim. Getting her out the door is a show---she barks out of total excitement until your coat and boots are on and she is out the door. 

Then she is calm again.  She is very playful, friendly, affectionate and loves to give kisses. Sacha can be timid and skittish around small children and in new circumstances. She weighs approximately 55 lbs.

We are looking for an active, adult family in the suburbs with a fully fenced yard, perhaps another large dog and preferably no cats or other small animals. Adult (16+) children only.

If interested, please only send emails to info@gerdysrescue.org

   
     
  Freddie - Adoption Pending  
     
   

SUPER FRIENDLY FREDDIE

Freddie is a 2 year old Rottie/Shep mix . He is neutered and up to date on his vaccinations. He loves people and can live with kids 12+. Freddie loves dogs and cats and loves to rough house with another big dog.

He is crate trained and has mastered walking very nicely with a Halti to avoid pulling.  He’s a strong boy weighing approx.70 lbs. Freddie knows most of his basic commands and enjoys working for his food and rewards.

He can be somewhat protective if in his enclosed space, in the presence of other dogs. Freddie would make a great addition to a family with another dog, looking for some companionship.

The family must be experienced with owning a strong, large breed dog. A house with a securely fenced in yard is imperative.

If interested, please only send emails to info@gerdysrescue.org
   
     
  Dallas  
     
   

DALLAS NEEDS A FAMILY, IT'S BEEN WAY TOO LONG

This handsome and very friendly male is a Shepherd mix of 70 pounds, 3 1/2 years old. A very good dog, kids age 12+ as he is a big boy. No other dog please, great with people but not other dogs. We want a fenced-in yard for Dallas to play ball with you or to explore his turf.

Dallas is a VERY nice boy, kind, travels well in the car and loves being petted.He has the sweetest face and wears his heart in his beautiful 2 coloured eyes. Dallas is neutered, vaccinated and ready to go to his new forever home!

  Jade  
     
   

JADE NEEDS YOU TO TAKE HER HOME

This girl wants to be your one and only. Jade is a stunning, 5 year old, 75 lb. mixed breed (maybe shepherd, rottie). Her owner was evicted from her apartment and had nowhere to live with a large dog.

Jade is a sweet, smart, playful, gentle giant who will do well in a home with experienced dog people who can give her the love, attention and exercise that she loves and needs.

A fenced-in yard would be a bonus for her! She is not a big fan of other dogs, so she has to be IT. Ok with cats. Kids 10 plus (because of her size).

If interested, please only send emails to info@gerdysrescue.org

   
     
  Heidi  
     
   

Heidi is a Malamute / Husky mix. Born May 15, 2009 (7 years old), she is beautiful inside and out. Although Heidi is sweet and good-natured, she is a bit scared since her rescue and would do best in a secure and loving home with no other pets, and preferably older kids (16 plus), if any.

A fenced in yard for Heidi to roam in would be a plus. She is sterilized, vaccinated, and is an all around wonderful dog. Heidi is a real looker, and her new family someone will be getting a great and loyal new friend!

  Meadow  
     
   

I am a senior female 10 year old Golden Retriever, spayed and vaccinated. I suffered a shock in my life when my elderly human passed away in the house
with me. I was in terrible shape when finally the police arrived MUCH later and took him away. I thought I would be safe but no one gave ME a second look.

The police just tied me up outside in the yard in the country, no one was called to help ME! And no one saw the huge painful abcess on my side or the condition I was in physically because my human had not been able to care for me properly, perhaps for weeks previously. I remained tied up outside with no care in the yard for a few days before someone noticed me tied up there on a tether.

I had no food, shelter or water when K911 rescued me and brought me to Gerdy. Gerdy took me over, I was not a well girl. It took a LONG time for my abcess to get better after surgery, because I kept opening it up even with a head cone. With one thing and another it has taken me a long time and even now I need a VERY SPECIAL new human in my life, someone with a magic healing touch of calmness inspiring trust. I choose my dog friends!

I have not had an easy life and much socialization, basically I have relied on MYSELF for emotional and physical survival all those sad years my person could or would not look after me properly. I will need NO other pets in my new home, NO kids. I am a rather an independent girl used to fending for myself, as always. I need help restructuring my life socially.

I have improved a lot under the care I am getting but need my own home. I need someone who will work patiently with me, leaving me to myself when I need a quiet time, and respecting I am a work in progress. I am rather opinionated. If I feel like being petted, you can, but right now I prefer to call my own shots as I always have done.

I am a SURVIVOR and it has left emotional scars to be opened up and healed with TRUST. If you are a confident and patient person, preferably single with NO children and NO other pets, and interested in helping me socially, and who has a good way with dogs getting back their confidence and allowing time to do the healing, please contact Gerdy.

I am spayed, vaccinated, heartworm negative. I was a
neglected dog through no fault of my own. But I still need LOVE and SECURITY like any pet. After all, dogs ARE sentient beings!

If interested, please only send emails to info@gerdysrescue.org

   
     
  Little Steve  
     
   

This sweet boy is Great Dane/Lab mix at 135 pounds. When Gerdy took him on, he was dreadfully thin, after much testing it seems it is Irritable Bowel Syndrome. His treatment was changed and he has now gained the weight he should be and is doing well. He is on medication.

Little Steve is the DEAREST dog, he is relaxed and so loving, he waits to be petted, he enjoys attention so very much. He is a slightly older dog with some frost on his muzzle. Very devoted. Little Steve is a VERY SPECIAL NEEDS dog who knows he was helped and is so GRATEFUL.

If you are a nurturing individual and want to help a deserving dog, Little Steve is the boy for you! He CANNOT be neutered because of his medical condition, so there can be no other dog in the home. Untried with cats. No small children as he needs a retirement atmosphere.

If interested, please only send emails to info@gerdysrescue.org

My name is Lenny! Don’t let these pics of me fool you … I look like I could be a lab puppy but I am a 12 year old Chihuahua mix! Abandoned as a senior by my family I cannot tell you what my life was like before my awesomesauce foster mom came to pick me up at the shelter but I can tell you what my life is like now.

IT IS AMAZING!  In foster care I have pugs to hang out with and even cats! I love them all so much, they are great company for when my foster mom leaves to go to work. I am left alone full work day, uncrated with no destruction whatsoever. Happy to snooze the day away waiting patiently for her return. I do, do my business outside when I am outside but can have accidents in the home though when left for longer periods of time. I think it is normal based on my age and also being in a new home learning all the new rules. But I am a smart little man so I hope I can figure out how not to make little mistakes.

I am perfect walking on the leash and I love my mini walks very much. And while I am not overly vocal per say when the pugs start barking I am more than happy to join in even though I have absolutely no idea why I am barking! I am a little standoffish with people, I desperately want loving so very much but am just shy and do not know how to ask for it. So a calm and patient and loving home would be ideal for me. Clearly I did not get a lot of cuddles in the past as they seem quite foreign to me now when my foster mama gives them to me. I can tell you though that I do love the attention very much.

I have not been around any children but at 12 years old I think I would prefer the grandkids visiting for a couple of hours rather than living in an active bustling loud home with young children. I just want to chill and hang out and go for walks and nap and eat! I arrived in foster care quite skinny so even though I am 12lbs I probably could gain another couple of pounds to be at a healthier weight.

I am a little stressed on car rides and need the emotional support of kind words and pets to let me know that everything is going to be ok. Clearly I am just not that used to them so maybe the more often I get out for mini drives the more my confidence will build… who knows? 

I asked my foster mom what was my WORST quality when I was writing my profile and she responded that the worst thing about me is that I am ABSOLUTELY PERFECT … I love my foster mom, she always makes me feel like I am a Number One Top Dog! I am not used to feeling that way about myself but boy-oh-boy I can tell you I am learning to love this feeling.

Foster mom wanted to add her own little note about me to my profile so here is what she has to say: “You can see that he had a hard life. He is unsure on how to behave in a house.  He wants cuddles and to be pet, but he doesn't know how to ask for it. He needs a quiet home, with a soft bed for him to lie in. 

Vet History: base vaccinated (booster due January 2017), rabies vaccinated (revaccination date December 2017), neutered, dental cleaning, dewormed. Will have one final checkup prior to adoption for health check and microchip.

Please contact Lee at leejohnson@videotron.ca


Spirit is a 9 year old GSD, who is very good with people, and has been in the same home since he was a puppy. Unfortunately, due to circumstances out of the control of Spirit's family, he needs to be rehomed.

He is in good health, and has great ball drive and is very affectionate according to his family. His one fault is that he is dog aggressive, and has prey drive, so Spirit would need a home with no other animals.

His case is urgent, so if anyone can help that is GSD experienced and is able to manage a dog with prey drive/dog aggression, please message me privately for the contact information for Spirit's family.

Thanks so much!

  Loulou  
     
   

Dear Loulou is 10 years old, a sterilized female, who is calm and very sweet. Declawed on all four paws. She was abandoned by her owner and is a friendly and nice cat looking for a home where she can retire.

She is appreciative with lots of love to give. A gentle and shy little girl, she just needs time to adjust to new people but then she will jump up beside you or into your lap,-- she likes to decide when it is cuddle time!

Untried with dogs, but in her old home was picked on by another cat, so Loulou would like being the only cat in the household for a change. She used to enjoy being brushed when she felt like it.

Are YOU the family Loulou can depend on now?

  Sparkle & Storm  
     
   

SPARKLE (that’s me on the left & below!)

Hi! I’m Sparkle, a young cat of 11 months, currently in foster care through Gerdy’s Rescue. I am your typical teenaged cat—I love exploring, roasted chicken, and cuddling on the bed with my foster parents… did I mention roasted chicken? I will do anything for roasted chicken! I absolutely adore other cats and it would be great to have a brother/sister cat to keep me company.

I was living outside with my brother and sister until a nice lady decided it was too cold for kittens to be outside so she brought us inside, and then asked Gerdy for help.

I was very shy and scared at first, but I have made so much progress. I don’t run and hide from my foster parents anymore—in fact, I am quite “pushy” when I want to be loved and cuddled. I have also learned to live with a grumpy old lady Chihuahua, and I am comfortable with dogs as long as they’re gentle with me too.  I am sterilized, dewormed and up to date on my vaccines.

If interested, please only send emails to info@gerdysrescue.org

STORM (that’s me on the upper right!)

Like my sister SPARKLE, I am 6 months old and am a neutered male kitten, up to date on my vaccines & dewormed. My foster mama gave me a nickname—“Mischievous Monkey” because I get into everything!

I like playing with your feet when you are asleep and carrying those little foam cat toys around in my mouth. I dislike loud noises or being put in a cat carrier. Having lived with a small dog my favourite game is to run up to her, give her a small smack on the nose( no claws used,) then run away! I told you I was mischievous—so if you have a dog,

I too need for the dog to be patient with me. Like sister Sparkle, I was living outside until a nice lady trapped us, brought us inside, then asked Gerdy for help. Gerdy placed us in a foster home. I was very shy & scared at first too, but I have made a lot of progress.

Treats go a long way in helping me feel comfortable with you. My foster mama has not yet found a treat that I don’t like!

  Caramel  
     
   

Caramel was an indoor cat until his owners were evicted, then he was put on the street to fend for himself. Being a nice temperament he soon got picked on by other male street cats because he was unneutered.

Gerdy took him on, and had him neutered, vaccinated and his test showed he was positive for FIV he was exposed to outside. He is in great health and is about 4-5 years old. He is VERY sweet, gentle, the NICEST cat! Lovely disposition, a real darling.

  Fred  
     
   

Fred is a wonderful, well tempered, nice cat.  He is always on his back so you can pet him on the belly.  Fred is so easy for everything, and a good cat all around. 

Fred SO deserves a home, he has been with us too long.  His was a sad case, originally brought to Gerdy’s as a stray with frozen feet—that is what happens to a stray in the dead of winter with no warmth to shelter in. 

We had him vetted right away and his feet healed well, but as he tested FIV positive no one wanted to adopt him.  Fred is neutered and vaccinated.  Many of us have FIV cats and unaffected cats in the same home, neutering makes a difference as does keeping cats indoors. 

Sweet Fred needs a real home, he is in good health.  Fred is a Domestic Shorthair, and is around 6 years old.  PLEASE consider Fred!

I am a dear male cat, born in January of 2015, a little over a year old, neutered & vaccinated. A Domestic Shorthair grey Tabby with white. I lost my home when my family moved to a place where pets were not allowed.

Gerdy took me on. I am such a sweetheart. If you are a nurturing person, I was born with a neuro problem that does not affect my life. I love to be cuddled and am well behaved, a charmer. I am on the small side at only 7 pounds, just right and I deserve a loving home too don’t you think?

Please consider me, you will not regret it. I am very lovable!

  Bev  
     
   

This sweet abandoned girl was discovered one extremely freezing cold day in the engine of a truck where she had DESPERATELY sought shelter and warmth, not realizing that the engine was still hot from running. She suffered burns to her paws mainly.

Bev is now ready for a home of her own, she is 2 years old, a shorthaired tortoiseshell. Bev is good with cats, dogs, and children. Bev has food allergies so needs to eat a special food.

Bev is a VERY affectionate and loving cat says her foster mom. Can you give beautiful Bev the home she so deserves after her ordeal?

I am one fortunate male cat! I had been seen eye injured, crossing busy streets with a hole where one eye had been, all alone in the world with no one to care. I was a street cat. I was skinny and starving; it is hard to hunt for food when one is in pain with one eye gone and was a miracle I was not struck by a car as it was very busy on that road.

A kind lady saw me struggling to survive and knew a survivor when she saw one! I was so hungry, so she left me food. I was starving and was the start of HOPE for me! When I trusted her enough to let her near me, she saw how bad my injury was.

Gerdy was contacted and had the surgery done to repair the damaged area so now I have a permanent wink to charm you! I can be shy at first with NO aggression, but I soon get over that and I am very sweet natured. I LOVE to be petted, I so appreciate LOVE.

I am a typical sweet all grey Domestic Shorthair, neutered and vaccinated. I have a gorgeous big round head. I LOVE my food-- I never want to starve again. I am estimated by the vet to be about 4 years old. You will never regret giving me a secure and loving home, gratitude is my middle name!

I am FIV positive but very healthy, please give me a chance because I am healthy and can live a LONG life!

For details and visits, please contact Bev at auerpets@gmail.com or Joan at animots@sympatico.ca


Rescued as a stray in January, Padishah ("Great King") is around 6 years old (D.O.B. 2011) and is in good health. Once his coat grows in, he will be either a Silver or a Shaded Silver Persian - a stunner either way with his aqua eyes.

He would prefer a peaceful home, without rambunctious children or a garage band on the premises. He is neutered and vaccinated and has all his claws (but does not sharpen them on the furniture).

He enjoys being with his foster carer and is learning to play with toys. He is gentle and quiet, and seems comfortable around other animals, including his carer's elderly Sheltie.

Virt is a neutered, front paws declawed and vaccinated to date  9 year old Cream Point Siamese cat with Blue eyes!  Virt has a big, healthy appetite and "loves to love." He's extremely affectionate, nice-tempered and has a big personality. He's very outgoing. He pretty much lives to give love and purr, be given attention and be petted.

He's a very vocal cat, has a strong voice and uses it when he wants attention or food. But if he does get more vocal than usual, it typically will only last for 5-10 minutes. After that he'll stop. Other than that he's like other cats in that he'll snooze for huge parts of the day and night. He would be perfect for someone looking for a companion cat, someone who wants to feel loved just as they can love him. 

He's getting older and isn't as playful, but definitely gets frisky every once in a while and will sprint around the house. He's extremely non-violent, would never, ever bite anyone maliciously (but knows when it's play-time). He's just a great cat and I believe he'll make someone really happy.  I cannot keep him as I travel constantly and he deserves to be in a home.  

While he's been the sole animal in the house for the majority of his life, he has lived with other cats from other roommates and evan an iguana, birds, and other animals. I'd say he's well-adjusted and other animals don't really create much of a stir for him. With other cats, he gets used to them after the standard two-week hissing period that most cats go through.   He has lived with dogs, yes! He'd be totally fine with one. He is an indoor cat only.

The problem is my work schedule is just getting too hectic with travelling for long periods of time. I can no longer give him the attention he deserves and I'm confident someone out there can give this little guy exactly that. We think he may be good as a kind of "therapy cat" or a cat for old folks.

He basically lives for affection and attention, but at the same time will sleep and won't bother anyone for huge amounts of the day. He's vocal and loves to be held. When he's held or being pet, he purrs forever. He's almost the perfect companion - he's endlessly affectionate.  We will also want to do periodic check-ups and will want to work with a person who can agree to that.

TOKI the pocket panther

Toki was given up because her family's new baby is allergic to her. She is 7 years old, though she looks like an eight-month-old kitten and energetic. She is now spayed.

If Toki were a person, she would be The Honorable Miss Phryne Fisher*: diminutive, supremely confident, sleek, supple, sensuous and accustomed to bending people to her will. She has firm ideas about what she wants and does not want and that she would like to be just the only cat, and devote her attention to her human admirers.

On the positive side of the ledger is her Siamese-like craving for human company. When I, her foster mother, sit down, she leaps into my lap. When I lie down, she stretches out on my chest, gazing worshipfully at me while gently kneading my arm. She follows me around the house, purring and chatting. She is an enthusiastic eater and uses her litter box neatly.

In view of her love of people, she needs a person - or a family - who enjoys interacting with a gregarious cat. As her previous family included a four-year-old girl, gentle children would be a plus. She has never gone outside and is used to apartment dwelling. She was also accustomed to having Soft Paw claw caps applied; I have not bothered with them, and she lets me trim her claws.

Should Toki turn out to be less delightful in your home than she is here, I will of course gladly take her back.

The perfect housemate, Blackjack is a DREAM soul mate!  He will greet you at the door when you come home, and is so affectionate you will feel sooo appreciated after a long day’s work. 

He would even LOVE to sleep beside you at night and keep you company. You can relax from your daily stress by brushing him for hours —he LOVES to be gently brushed as long as you feel like it.  He will even follow you to the bathroom and wait patiently for you beside the tub if given the opportunity!

He is truly a nice, gentle cat.  However, he wants to be the ONLY cat in your life so he can worship and spoil only his humans!  He tolerates a dog,  but he would prefer a calm dog already familiar with a cat. Children 5+ years as he likes to be treated gently. 

Sometimes he can be a little shy but once used to a person, warms up quickly and is such a GREAT cat.  Blackjack is neutered with vaccines up to date. He is a Chantilly cat with medium long hair all beautiful midnight black. 

If you want to be a lovingly pampered person, you need Blackjack!

  Charles  
     
   

COURTESY LISTING

If interested, contact info@gerdysrescue.org


Charles (a female cat) is about 10 years old and has been spayed. She is very quiet, hardly ever meowing unless she is in distress such as a door being closed on her, forbidding her to be near you! She is incredibly affectionate.

She loves to nuzzle so that you kiss her forehead and adores cuddling right up beside you, always knowing when you need a friend! Though she is very sensitive about her stomach (do not pet there) and prefers to be pet from the head to tail, and especially under the chin! It can be easy for her to get overstimulated and nip occasionally. She is prone to biting when she is not familiar with you yet. She can be a bit moody when she is tired, hungry, or wanting to play. However, once the trust is built with her, her heart of gold shines through.

She also has a unique personality as she has an affinity for socks. Will find them and bring them around the house. She's very playful for her age and needs a lot of play-time. Charles runs on a very strict daily schedule and is not too shy to let you know when it's meal time. She will wake you up on the dot every morning, sit by her bowl in the evening and be curled up at the foot of the bed every night.

She really is the best companion one could ask for!

Forever home needed for a loving female cat. Kicza ('Kitty' in Polish) is a 9 year old domestic long haired cat. She is spayed, vaccinated and in good health. Kicza can be reserved initially, but is very loving and affectionate once she opens up. She needs regular cuddles and playtime, but also enjoys her daily alone time. She definitely loves her food!

She is happy as an indoor cat. She does well with children over 5 years of age, but can become stressed around other cats. She has gotten used to living with other cats and dogs in the past, but would be happier with a space to herself.

Kicza is being put up for adoption because her owner sadly could not take her when she moved to the UK. She is living with friends in Montreal at the moment (Plateau/Mile End), who would be happy to answer questions and introduce you if you are looking to adopt a sweet, older cat.

Black male domestic shorthair. Recently Neutered. About 1 year old. Francois has been running loose in my neighbourhood all summer. He is now coming on a regular basis for food and is less fearful and has become very affectionate. He adores a head and neck scratch.

He is still cautious and afraid of startling noises or sudden movements, but he is not a mean kitty. He is not afraid of dogs and other cats.

He likes being outdoors but is becoming more comfortable coming inside the house. He needs a loving home.
