  Coco Chanel  

I am a VERY sweet Diva, who when picked up by the Gerdy team, was not content riding  in the back seat but I insisted on being in the front beside Gerdy! There I settled down happily. I am cute as a button and weigh 10 pounds. I am a ShihTzu/Yorkie crossbreed girl, 6 ½ years old with a long life ahead of me. Sadly my person had to give me up because of her medical reasons, and Gerdy said she’d get me a good forever home. I am sterilized, vaccinated, heartworm negative, all set to go, I have my Louis Vuitton suitcase all packed. I am a Miss Congeniality of dogs, you will be so proud of me!


Dexter found himself abandoned at the pound by an owner Gerdy had helped after her promising to keep him if she had help with sterilization and vaccines. So Dexter has been rescued again! Neutered and vaccinated, he is looking for a good loving home. He is an orange and white domestic shorthair, so VERY friendly, about 2 years old. He is a WONDERFUL cat in every way, contented, easy going, and a cuddler. Gorgeous eyes and SO handsome! He deserves a real break in his short life, can YOU give him the home he so richly deserves?


Meet Jack, a 2 year old male ShihTzu/Terrier Mix. He is being sterilized under Gerdy's Rescues, is vaccinated, heartworm tested negative. HOUSETRAINED, he is good around adults and strangers. He is good around children, but gets anxious and excited, we are told. His family moved, and he was placed with Gerdy to find a new loving home.




This VERY handsome pure BLACK LAB boy is neutered, vaccinated, and heartworm tested negative. Max is 69 pounds and was born July 24, 2013, a little over a year old. His owner regretfully could no longer keep him because of allergy in the family, so Gerdy was asked to find him a new forever home. Max is an exceptional boy in every way. The typical trustworthy Black Lab, he has great temperament, fun loving, affectionate, and gorgeous melt-your-heart eyes!

  Kelti - adoption pending  

I am only being given up because of health reasons of my owner, I am a very loved girl. I was raised in the home since 8 weeks old, with 2 cats and a large dog. I am very gentle with small dogs also. I love kids, and am very good with them, I love to play with them. I am a VERY smart girl, being a X Border Collie (90%) and Husky 10&, spayed and vaccinated. So I am more in nature a Border Collie!! I have NEVER shown my teeth to anyone. Not protective of my food or possessions. Extremely friendly & playful with everyone especially strangers who approach me on leash on the street. I was ONE YEAR OLD on July 21, 2014. I am an active girl who LOVES exercise in a good dog park and am very gentle with all size dogs there, sociable, I come when you call my name. Cuddly & affectionate, I am also crate trained. FULLY HOUSE TRAINED! I NEED a home where I will be exercised properly, I NEED to run around and not just be kept in a back yard all by myself. However I do need a fully fenced back yard to keep me safe. I have the very active nature of the Border Collie, so active people would be ideal for me! And if we could learn AGILITY together, that would be a huge bonus for us both, exercise & FUN together! (She has beautiful ice blue eyes, her father was a handsome pure bred silver husky, she has her daddy’s eyes!) 

  Manny - adoption pending  

This loving and very handsome 1-2 year old Black Lab X is now ready for adoption. Manny was luckily found by a couple walking their dog on a trail near the edge of a swamp. Their dog started to bark at something. From the edge of the swamp, off trail, up popped Manny's head!  They investigated and discovered he was anchored by his leash securely to a broken sapling, his leash handle threaded down the sapling so there was no chance of him
escaping. Had it not been for the dog and the couple, Manny would have starved to death there. As it was, he was in a cloud of mosquitoes when found. He was taken in by Gerdy's Rescues. He was very frightened by his experience so we gave him extra decompression time, now he is ready for a home! He must have been terrified of his previous owner!  He would shake and cower but he has regained his trust of humans again and is a DEAR boy, not a mean bone in him then or now! Manny now is vaccinated, neutered, vaccines done Bordatella, Rabies, Max 5. Heart worm tested negative and dewormed. Young 1-2 years old, Manny is all set to go into his new home. He is about 98 pounds, a very handsome big lad!


I am a tri-colour male Basset Hound, 6 years old. I am neutered, vaccinated, and heartworm tested negative. I am a nice natured chap, interested in all around me. I was abandoned by my owner, and I am such a good boy. A kind nature, I am looking for a home that is Basset familiar if possible, and I need a securely fenced-in yard for us to play as if I get loose I would follow my nose and get lost in no time. We Bassets are natural clowns, and I will entertain and love you as Best Buddies!


Here comes Doggy BooBoo! I am a DEAR dappled Dachshund only 2 years old. I am vaccinated, spayed, and heartworm tested negative. I was professionally
well trained in my old home. I am not a barker, I am quiet, and VERY sweet. In fact, the short and the long of me is that I am well behaved! I am not snappy, but please treat me gently for I am a lady who deserves respect, no small kids to play rough with me please! I would LOVE to be
fussed over and cherished. I love to walk, good in the car (doggy seatbelt please!) and friendly, although on the shy side until we get acquainted then you are my best friend. I lost my old home due to circumstances having nothing to do with me personally. I sure would like to feel I belong with someone again for the rest of my life.

  Gordie - adoption pending  

This adorable and good natured Cocker pup was born March 25, 2014 and is a 4 month old male, neutered & vaccinated, given up by owner. A happy boy, he is all set to enjoy life in his forever new home! What more can we say, one look from these eyes catches the heartstrings!


Hi there folks! A little Maturity here but I'm your man if you want a good pal to enjoy life with. I am pretty versatile, active or at ease watching The Game together. Or a chick flick--as long as I can be near my people! I am good in the car too, love walkies. I am a real nice dog. Now, at 7 years of age there is some snow on the roof but fire in the furnace, I am active and interested in life, in good shape.  Heartworm tested negative, neutered, vaccinated, dewormed. They say I am very deserving of a new home with YOU!

  Spencer - adoption pending  

Here I am, a one year old blond GOLDEN RETRIEVER born July 23, 2013. I am neutered, vaccinated, tested Heartworm negative. A jolly boy as Goldens are, I am equally ready for play or affection. Great personality and a
family dog!


A gorgeous rust colored Golden Retriever, I am 8 years old, born July 23, 2006 and was recently abandoned by my owner. I am 58 pounds of love! A neutered male. The vet said I have a slight case of Lyme Disease, but will recover on my own with no antibiotics necessary! I have no heartworm and I am fully vaccinated. I have good years left and want to spend them with you in OUR home.

  Zoe - adoption pending  

This sweet natured Doberman girl is 7 months old and 49 pounds. Spayed and vaccinated, Zoe has a lot of charm, gets along with other dogs. 

Zoe is a playful girl and very trusting.  Her ears and tail are cropped, but poor Zoe!  One ear will flop down and her tail was left too long, but SHE is just perfect!

Zoe is a very special girl!

  Elliott - adoption pending  

What a darling 7lb apricot mini poodle!  He is 5 1/2 months old, very sweet nature. Needs someone home during the day as he is a puppy and needs training. 

A very pleasant nature, having 2 dogs was too much for his owner, so Gerdy will get him a loving home.  Elliott will be neutered under Gerdy's Rescues when ready.

  Ringo - adoption pending  

This 9 year old pure Sheltie boy is astounding!  Well trained and obedient, he loves being around people.  He is still very active and enjoys his leash walks and playing with other friendly dogs who he likes to herd if he can!

At 35 lbs, he is an ideal size, in good health, neutered and vaccinated etc. Has no separation anxiety when left alone and is good with cats.  He is afraid of thunder but will not bark, he just wants to be around his people, Good appetite. 

Barks at the doorbell to tell you someone is there and maybe a second at someone new, but then he is a buddy. 

Ringo is a very gentle dog, a real Gentleman.

  Dusty - adoption pending  

Dusty will be a family treasure!  She is a loving LAB X SHEPHERD who was abandoned by her owner at a pound.  Dusty is a young girl between 1-2 years old. 

Calm with other dogs and friendly, she is rarely vocal.  She pulls a bit on leash but you can easily work with her on this.  WHAT A DELIGHTFUL GIRL! Likely would accept cats. Her facial pattern is unusual, like she is wearing goggles or sunglasses! 

Dusty is being spayed under Gerdy's, is vaccinated, dewormed, heartworm negative as well. She LOVES puppies, she obviously had a litter then was not wanted anymore.

Dusty will charm the socks off of you with her sweet and playful nature!

Hello All!

I was an inherited boy and am delightful with the people but I do not like one of the 3 dogs there, we just never made buddies. 

I would like a home of my own with no other pets please as I have as most Jacks, a strong predator drive for birds, squirrels, and hamsters.

Untried with cats but likely not good with them either.  Tho maybe I could be with another dog who is non-dominant,  I would really prefer to be the head honcho!

I am 3 years old and GREAT with people!  A Jack needs LOTS of exercise keep in mind, we make great AGILITY dogs too!  A well fenced back yard, you, me, and a ball, can have a lot of fun! 

I am a real cuddler and would love to follow you around the house in case you need me for something! 


Compassionate Placement

(With Donation to Gerdy's Rescues)

I am the PERFECT cat! At a MATURE 11 years which is but a blip on the life of an inside cat, I have many more good years ahead of me. But my owner was leaving the country and ran out of time to look for a home for me.

In spite of being DECLAWED on all fours, I am also BLACK which can be a hard shade to adopt out we black cats know. I am a VERY handsome chap, shiny and sleek, most debonnaire of neutered male feline! I am impeccable and fastidious in my habits, whilst being deeply affectionate and willing to listen to everything you say to me.

I am a cat psychiatrist, talk to me and we can use the money saved to treat ourselves to salmon, a meal for two, frequently, caviar maybe. After trying desperately to get me a home unsuccessfully, my owner turned to Gerdy’s Rescues to take me on and save my life. So here I am.

Now although I am Mature, I still have a sense of humor and a lively wit! In great shape physically for my age as well as vaccinated, and sterilized, you will be proud to be seen with me and introduce me to your friends. They will be very impressed by your taste in cats!


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!


I am a 23 lb PUG, 4 years old, a neutered male. I was not wanted anymore, my person had tired of me and I was out wandering on the road a lot to entertain myself. I was given over to a nice lady to place and she chose Gerdy's Rescues. So here I am!

They find me a very pleasant boy, when I was out loose I did bark but maybe that was just because I was nervous. I am getting my vaccines up to date, heartworm tested negative, and dewormed. I am in great shape but I'd rather go for safe walks on a leash and not get hit by a car!

Please consider me as your new canine friend, I'd love to be adopted by a family who wants me!


Saved from a hoarding situation, these 2 brother and sister pups were slated to be euthanized in a gassing pound as they were so emaciate. Instead they were saved and taken over by Gerdy’s Rescue, where a devoted foster took them into her heart and home.

It is now time to place them in loving adoptive homes. They are X German Shepherd, dear little souls about 5 - 6 months old now. Their foster has been working very hard on training them, so they are social pups and good natured, and house trained or close to it!

They will be sterilized when ready under Gerdy’s Rescues, along with their vaccines & deworming.  

Is an easy-going boy who walks well on leash. And behaves well in the house. Very good with kids, and likes cats as well. A bit shy at first meeting but in 5 minutes he is confident in his ability to charm you. Gets more confident and loving with each passing day.


JULES and CLEO can be adopted separately

Is a very intelligent girl, interested in all around her. She loves lots of exercise and is good on leash. Loves kids & cats, especially.


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!

  Nalia - adoption pending  

I am a very sweet 5 year old girl, my owner had no choice but to give me up to keep me safe.  I am a Miniature Pinscher girl about 12 pounds but Gerdy's think there is maybe Chihuahua in there as I have floppy ears and a bit of white on me. I have a docked tail.  

I am completely irresistible--a WONDERFUL nature, friendly to all.  I love to be cuddled as well as walked on my leash and I am GREAT in the car. Friendly to other little dogs.  Not for condo or apartment as I bark a bit when someone comes to the door, to tell you. I am one of the BEST little dogs Gerdy has ever had behaviour-wise.   


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, needs a good chew toy to work on, she LOVES to chew! Needs exercise to help her sleep a full night. 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 understands what no means and listens. She LOVES to be close to her human, 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 and in good general health. She is trimmed for summer but normally has longer and wavy hair. A very bright little girl, Nicky is IDEAL for AGILITY training and would enjoy the activity so much!


Chika has been returned to us, 2 years after her adoption..  Her adoptive Mom can no longer keep her because of her own  health issues and is very sad to have to part with Chika.  

She is a dear girl and following is her original bio from June 2012.  Chika was very loved.   Chika has come a long way in her 2 years of having a home, and is a DELIGHT!

“At 14 pounds, Chika arrived at the door of a home in the country, from a field, all covered with burrs, exhausted.  She had obviously been loose on her own for a good period of time.  She had no ID.  She was taken in and is now a Gerdy dog. 

She has a WONDERFUL personality—she loves to play and run.  A bit fearful by nature but NOT A MEAN BONE, she is just apprehensive and is just learning to trust again.  Who knows what she went through!!  She is about 2-3 years old and is a  fluffy Terrier Mix –whatever she is, she is ADORABLE!  Chika obeys commands like Sit, Come, Stay, and No.  She responds to the name they gave her. 

She does not know how to walk on leash, and just freezes in place, does not move—so she needs gentle training.  She listens well and is very GENTLE.  She CRAVES affection and just celebrated when the family came home to her. 

Endearing and without malice, she could easily integrate into a family with kind children.  While she accepted the cat in the home, she did growl as the cat passed her food bowl while she was eating, but did not try to hurt the cat.   

Spayed, heartworm tested negative, vaccinated, Chika (meaning “girl” in Spanish)  is truly one of the best little dogs we have had the pleasure to help.”


Rescued from a pound in North Carolina and driven up here by a friend of the rescuer,  5 year old DeeDee has had a sad time of it.

The person tired of her after a few days,and gave her to a friend, who dumped her at the SPCA and she was then brought to the SPCA Annexe where she was taken over & treated by Gerdy’s.  She is now in foster care.
This mini poodle is beyond adorable, even with one wonky eye, that is naturally covered by a tuft of curls.

Deedee is 5 years old, friendly, affectionate and prances when she walks. Her foster mom says she is a complete pleasure and a great companion.
Her health has been delicate and she has been suffering from an untreated liver infection that Gerdys has  had treated.   Her sight is not good. 
A compassionate, loving person who is home alot (or wants to take her with them to work or shopping) would be a great match.  This is a little dog who needs a real Earth Angel!


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!


Maddix was going to be euthanized at a gassing pound, his owner did not want him so dumped him there to get rid of him.  He was saved from euthanasia and made his way to Gerdy’s Rescues.

Maddix is a cheerful boy, a big guy at 89 pounds, he is a male German Shepherd X, brindle in color.  Born January 29, 2011 he is neutered, heartworm tested negative, dewormed, vaccinated.  He does not like to be crated, we believe he had a bad experience with that. 

Maddix is good in the car, loves to go for a drive!  He needs obedience training as he is so large, but is a handsome and big hearted guy.  A dog for teens or older children but for the adults to walk!  

When Maddix gets trained, he is going to be a fantastic dog!  He is SO affectionate.  He loves to cuddle and thinks he is a lapdog! 

Affectionate, HOUSETRAINED, Overweight, Insecure but friendly he gets over his shyness quickly.  Loves to play fetch. No food aggression, outgoing personality interested in everything.

  Cleo - adoption pending  

Cleo is a beautiful Blue Cream Point HIMALAYAN, 6.2 kg,  a spayed female born May 22, 2007.  She is a cream & white LONGHAIR. Vaccinated etc.   

Cleo’s owner is ill and hospitalized now.  Cleo misses her owner and would love to be Blessed with someone special to love her again. 

Is that special someone YOU?


This sweet tri-colour Beagle boy is 4 1/2 years old and has one eye blue and the other brown—very distinctive!   Charlie was abandoned by his owner.  Charlie would love a new home to call his own!

Beagles can be vocal when excited, so not for an apartment or condo.  And they need a securely fenced back yard as they follow their nose if loose and can be miles away in no time, exploring.  But they are great pets, full of love for their family. 

Charlie was rather neglected in his training, it is obvious that his owner gave him no training time as he needs to learn to walk properly on leash and learn the social graces of a dog’s world.

But he is a darling and well worth the time invested, he is a smart boy and will learn quickly.  Charlie is vaccinated, neutered, dewormed, heartworm tested negative.  Life is more fun with a Beagle to entertain you!

TAZ is a PEKINESE with a puppy cut!  Some do that to keep the hair look less shedding but we must admit it does look cute!   Taz is 6 years old, a neutered and vaccinated male who was abandoned by his owner.  TAZ gets along with other dogs and is very sociable, but ideally would like a home of his own this time around as he LOVES attention and a nice cuddle!

A very pleasant boy, he LOVES his walks.  Pee pad trained we were told.  He does not have breathing problems, had his nose vet checked!  Currently in a foster home and is well liked!


This handsome and sweet boy is a mix of Bassenji and Labrador.  He is 2 years old, blond and white, weighs 50 pounds and is in very good health, HOUSETRAINED!  He needs lots of exercise so a well fenced back yard with YOU to play with him is great.

Plays well with other dogs, would make a GREAT second dog to a dog loving to play with another dog!    Not at all aggressive with people but a good heart!  An all-around good dog for active people, or family with older active kids.

Axel is a handsome boy, neutered, vaccinated, heartworm tested negative.  Look at those ears—ready for takeoff!!


This sweet and adorable pure Basset boy is under a year and a half 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! 


Well folks, I need help in getting my weight down!  I am WAY overweight, I tip the scales at 95 pounds, likely a good 30 pounds overweight, I am obese. 

I am a Black Lab Mix, with shorter legs, and was born March 2, 2007, 7 years old.  I am a neutered male, with all my vaccines, heartworm tested negative. 

My owner was unable to care for me anymore.  I need good care to get the weight off  but am healthy.  Not great with other dogs, I like people tho! 

I am very lonely, just wanting to be loved and paid attention to, never to be the chubby boy on the beach again.

I am an 11 year old domestic shorthair female and need a new home because my owner developed an allergy.  I am in good shape, in fact I just had my teeth cleaned and some removed, so am all set to go to my new home with a sparkling smile.  I am low maintenance, no problems, litter trained.  Affectionate and calm. 

I was a cat who was allowed out but with all the predators around, it would be best if I am not at risk and instead will be safe as an indoor cat from now on.  Look at me, a cat of experience that comes with age—I can anticipate a good chick flick with you, I have seen most of them so know which one to choose you will enjoy!  I like a good hockey game too, my tv tastes are varied.  

I can teach you how to play the computer keyboard, especially when you think you are busy.  I know when you need a break.  Just to look at me at ease will help your blood pressure, I am Zen Cat.  But I love to play any interactive game you want, and I always win as I am a smart girl!  But most of all, I will love you because YOU gave me a chance at life when very few cats are wanted past kittenhood in these busy times.

Loyalty—us Golden Oldies know the meaning and you will never regret giving me a chance!

The lady who saved me from a life of neglect is fostering me in hopes she can find me a forever loving home. I was an Easter Bunny impulse purchase 2 years ago, an impulse by a mother for her 5 year old daughter.

The novelty soon wore off, and I grew to adult size. No longer paid attention to. I was severely neglected and handled very roughly by the child as she treated me like a living toy, I was squeezed and handled roughly, it was a wonder I survived! I was then never taken out of my cage for exercise, I could not hop or move because my nails had grown too long, painfully curled into my bottom pads.

It was then that I was saved by a kind hearted lady who saw I was kept in the basement furnace room in a cage only big enough for a guinea pig! She cut my nails as I calmly sat in her lap as she helped me. After she put me down, I found I could once again hop! Then I felt so great, I hopped and pranced about happily!

Finally my owner agreed that the lady could take me over into her loving home and find me a new home.  So here I am! I know I am not a dog or cat, but if there is a good bunny home for me to be cared for and loved, please I need your help! I am a sweet bunny girl waiting to be loved!

Named for the white terrier in the comic strip "Asterix and Obelix", Idéfix's character matches his name. Idéfix translates as "fixed idea"and our little a guy knows what he wants.

This 3 year old terrier mix is a small packages with a very big character, yet sometimes lacks confidence. When given a little reassurance and a little time he will follow you to the end of the earth.

A great snuggler, he would be happy equally on your lap or by your side on an adventure. He barks at comings and goings so he would do better in a house. He is good with most small dogs, and sometimes afraid of the big ones. Cats are not his thing. Kids 16+.

A beautiful soul looking for a retirement home with a fenced in yard

Bullet is a big lover boy who adores cuddling. This Great Dane/ Pitbull mix is looking for a family who will give him lots of affection and play time- he may be 8 years old, but he's a puppy at

heart!  Bullet is smart as a whip and knows many commands. He is very obedient but can get sidetracked with birds, squirrels and other small animals while on a walk. He is selective with

other dogs and can pull hard on the leash, so experience with large dogs is an asset.

Bullet needs a ground level apartment or a private home, as too many stairs may be problematic for him in his golden years. Kids 10, No cats. Very selective dogs.

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?

Husky seniors URGENTLY need retirement homes!
We are looking for caring, loving, patient homes for 3 former sled dogs. Laska is a 9 1/2 year old female and Chinook and Yukon are both 11 year old males.

They lived outside in their prior life, but are becoming acclimatized to spending some time indoors at the shelter.

They walk nicely on a leash, are friendly, affectionate and overall nice dogs considering their difficult past.

  Laska has been Adopted  
  Tony - adoption pending  

A sweet natured male beige Golden Retriever, Tony is under 4 years old, birth date being 17 September 2010. Tony is allergic to chicken. 

He likes playing ball, neutered, vaccinated, heartworm tested negative, dewormed, Tony is all set to go to his new forever home!

  Pico - Adoption pending  

This HANDSOME boy needs weight reduction but is worth the effort as he is an AMAZING FAMILY DOG, ideal also for the first time dog owner!  He is jolly natured, easy going, LOVES the car, clean in the house.  Heartworm negative, neutered, dewormed, vaccinated. 

GREAT with other dogs, cats, & kids!  He was given up by people as they no longer had time for him - obvious because at only 6 years of age, he has not been exercised and now weighs 121 pounds!  Born June 21, 2008.  But Gerdy has him on a vet slenderizing food now.  When he loses weight he will be a GORGEOUS boy! 

You see he is a MIX of GOLDEN RETRIEVER/SHEPHERD, face is all Golden, he certainly has the Golden nature!  He touched noses with a rabbit in the vet waiting room, and wanted to play with the dogs waiting to see a vet, and just glanced at the kittens awaiting a home—he is cool with other animals.  People too! 

Easy at the vets, no problem!  He is afraid of thunderstorms, as are a number of dogs, so this is NOT a dog to take to fireworks—never a good idea anyway.  Beautifully coloured and very dramatic in appearance. 

The dear Golden eyes and his walk, both Golden Retriever features, illustrate his wonderful playful yet calm nature.  If you LOVE Goldens you will love this variation!

  Charlie - Adoption pending  

This handsome Bernese Mountain Dog is only 7 months old and was too much for a family with children, there was not enough time for him, so Gerdy took him on. 

Charlie is 71 pounds right now, playful yet can be a calm boy, but he is still a puppy and needs training to be a social butterfly. 

VERY nice & friendly personality, a friend to the world.  Neutered, vaccinated, etc, all set to go.

  Drew - Adoption pending  

It's been a long haul but DREW is finally ready for his new home! He was the little puppy who had surgery to help him be able to eat properly and live a normal life.
Because Drew has to eat SLOWLY, even though great appetite, it helps him to have his kibble put in a Kong to slow down his rate of intake, for each meal. For this reason, please no other pets, dogs or cats, and no small children even tho he is a sweet boy.

Drew seems to be a mix of Pitbull and Spaniel, about 45 pounds, born April 23, 2013, he is 1 year old. Drew was originally found abandoned on the street, in a bad way starving because he could niot keep down food, he was taken over by Gerdy's and had extensive surgery to save his life.

Drew is going to need an Earth Angel person or couple who will make him their special personal project from the heart. Drew is neutered and vaccinated, and beat the odds to live, now he needs YOU to take over and turn him into the best dog he can be with loving training and attention.

  Tepe & Cami - Adoption pending TOGETHER!  

TEPETONGO (Tepe)  and CAMILA (Cami)     BONDED PAIR, to be placed TOGETHER
These dogs are devoted to each other, if we can possibly place them together, it would make them SO HAPPY and us too!  Both dogs were brought from Mexico where the family lived, they adored their dogs.  But as circumstances changed, they could no longer keep the dogs in their next move. 

These dogs LOVE each other so much, very well behaved, and very good dogs.  Know basic commands such as sit, stay, and they don’t start to eat until you give permission, as was taught by their owner.  Both dogs good in the car.
The male, Tepe, is 4 years old, very friendly with people especially children.  He is a Chocolate Flat Coat Retriever, very handsome.  He loves the snow in winter where he loves to romp around. 

A very intelligent boy, he has lots of energy but at the same time he is calm.  A total gentleman with all female dogs, he is devoted to his Camila.  He is neutered, vaccinated, heartworm tested negative and dewormed.
CAMILA (“Cami”)
This sweet Yellow Lab female is about 5-6 years old, gentle and a little bit nervous of adults she doesn’t know, but fine with kids.  But once she knows you, all is cool with her and she is happy. She likes to stay with you by your side, she loves company. 

She depends on her Tepe, who is always there for her.  Spayed, vaccinated, heartworm tested negative, and dewormed.  Camila is a beautiful girl with expressive eyes. 

  Roscoe - Adoption pending  

Look at those ears!  Roscoe is going to be a bigger dog when he grows up.  Currently in foster care, Roscoe is a German Shepherd Mix and 6 months old now. 

He had been abandoned at DMV at 3 months needing surgery for a leg problem now fixed and he is doing great.  Active, social, and very playful, Roscoe is neutered, vaccinated, dewormed and all set to go to his new forever home!

  Dudley - Adoption pending  

A 6 1/2 year old  BEAGLE, Dudley is very sweet and loving, and is a real Mr Personality!  He is very clean in the house and loves to cover HIMSELF with his blanket to go to sleep!

He loves children, other dogs and seems to like men a lot.  He barks at cats, so not for a cat home, too upsetting to a cat!  Everyone loves him, and his foster thinks that in a 2 person adult home, life would be better for him.  He sleeps in his crate happily at night, doesn’t like it during the day, but will tolerate being in it then as well. 

He has developed  separation anxiety so will do better with a person at home during the day (a perfect dog) while the other works.  Dudley is neutered, vaccinated, heartworm tested negative, dewormed, no fleas. 

Dudley being a Beagle will follow his nose forever, so needs a secure Beagle-proof fenced yard—this is not a breed to just leave in the yard.  Instead, PLAY with him to give him exercise, then take him for a nice walk, that is all he needs.  Hounds LEFT in a yard will look for a way out in their boredom.  Who can blame them? 

Dudley is in the 30 pound range, slightly overweight still, but working on his physique with help from his foster.  A handsome tri-colour, Dudley SO wants a permanent home of his own, he was given up because of allergy. 

He has the dearest face—can you be his hero and give him the attention that he craves?
