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.
I am about 7 years old. I am VERY LOVING but I am scared of other cats now, so no other cats or dogs in the home. But I LOVE people, getting cuddled. No noisy kids please, just a quiet retirement home. 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!


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?

  Buzzy 2 - adoption pending  

Here I am, a sweet gentle girl of 5 months old and 32 pounds as of January 30, 2015. I will be sterilized and vaccinated under Gerdy’s Rescues. I was a pet shop purchase when I was 2 months old, but my owner was unable to keep me, so Gerdy was asked to help me find a good home! I look like a mix of lab and greyhound, although I am just a little mutt, but VERY pretty and cuddlesome! I LOVE to give gentle kisses, I am still a bit shy but gaining confidence, with not a mean bone in me! My coat is very decorative too and I have a LONG tail! Small boned, I am very elegant looking! My eyes are the mirror of my innocence, I am hoping that life brings me good people and a permanent home full of affection. I look for GENTLENESS as I am a little lady. I will benefit from puppy classes too because I am VERY intelligent and I pay attention.

Milou is a 9 year-old, 12 lb, Jack Russell/Corgi mix. Milou has only one eye but functions perfectly. He is super friendly with all dogs, loves to be cuddled and loves his walks. Milou MUST live with another dog or a cat as he is used to having best buddies! 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. A house vs an apartment and someone with a flexible schedule would be perfect.

If you are interested in this adorable little guy,

Contact the SPCA Annexe:



This sweet natured and beautiful Sheltie is said to be 8 or 9 years old, but seems so much younger. She loves to be walked, and still has energy to enjoy a good play. Barks when playing or having fun, so not for a condo or apartment! She is sterilized, vaccinated. And had her teeth cleaned under Gerdy's as well. She had to be given up as the landlord ordered her OUT--no dogs allowed, so they asked Gerdy to find her another secure and loving home. She is in good health, and ready to bring joy to a new family. Older children or adults best with Shelties as they love to herd if they can! This girl is ABSOLUTELY adorable in nature and personality. A Miss Congeniality for sure.

  Audini - adoption pending

Audini is a 4 year old terrier mix that came to us from another SPCA because he needed emergency surgery to have an eye removed.

He is in great shape and hasn’t yet noticed that he only has one eye! He is affectionate, playful, smart and a pleasure to be around.
Around is the key word here as he will need someone who has lots of time to spend with him; someone who works from home or with a flexible schedule. With time he will get used to his new home and his people and be less insecure about being alone. Another dog or two would work well for him too. Cats are a no-no, because with only one good eye we aren’t taking any chances, he loves to chase them.
Audini would be great as first dog and can live with kids 6 plus.
No apartments!

She is spayed, 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. Abi does not like to be on leash around other dogs, but loose in a run she is social.


What a sweetie-pie of a little lady! Gentle and kind, Carrie is a LAB MIX, about 45 pounds, a real mutt--loving as can be, and a sensitive soul. If you are looking for a dear companion, Carrie is for you. She had been turned in by her owners along with PETEY to a gassing pound because they could no longer care for the dogs. Great with other gentle dogs and ok with cats.

Carrie was diagnosed HEARTWORM POSITIVE (Lyme negative)) She will have the first of 3 treatments on Feb 9/15, which will be covered by Gerdy's Rescues.
She'd love a home of her own during her treatments. She is estimated to be 1-2 years old, and is spayed and vaccinated.

Carrie LOVES gentle affection, and just BEING with you will bring her great joy.

NOTE:While undergoing treatment for HEARTWORM, it is essential that this dog not be exercised more than just a short walk on leash, no running. To be as CALM as possible. Should be the ONLY animal in the house for the duration of the treatment, no running loose in the fenced back yard, or undue overexcitement or playing with another dog or running with kids. This is VITAL, to be kept quiet in a calm home during the treatment process.


Poppy is a male Yorkie, a little guy needing a Retirement Home of his own. He is 10 years old, neutered and vaccinated. He has no aggression at all.
Poppy is easy to bathe and to clip his nails. He is not a barker unless he wants his food or hears something outside.


Max is a Shepherd Mix turned over to a gassing pound by his "owner" because they got a smaller dog! A "doggie trade-in!", about a year old. Heartworm/Lyme tested NEGATIVE, vaccinated and neutered. NO CATS FOR MAX in the household!

Max is a dear boy, very sweet, and HANDSOME! Another wiggle butt, Max will work his way into your heart, he has so much love to give! Good family dog.

loving home for a lifetime of 2 -way devotion!

  Petey - adoption pending  

I am a handsome and very charming CHOCOLATE LAB MIX, 2-3 years old, vaccinated and neutered. I LOVE to have my belly scratched best of all! I am a playful boy, yet sensitive and very affectionate. A super wiggle-butt!

I was diagnosed with active HEARTWORM (LYME negative) and am currently undergoing treatment for it. I get my 2nd of 3 treatments on Feb 9/15 and my treatments will be completed under Gerdy's Rescues.

I'd LOVE to have my very own home where you could take me to doggy school so I could learn to walk on leash properly, it looks interesting. I really would like that and it is something we could work on together! Hey, and that hockey game on tv...the chick flick...I'm easy, as long as I'm with YOU!

NOTE:While undergoing treatment for HEARTWORM, it is essential that this dog not be exercised more than just a short walk on leash, no running. To be as CALM as possible. Should be the ONLY animal in the house for the duration of the treatment, no running loose in the fenced back yard, or undue overexcitement or playing with another dog or running with kids. This is VITAL, to be kept quiet in a calm home during the treatment process.

I am a very gentle and kind WALKER HOUND girl, about a year old and 43 pounds. I look sort of like a Beagle on stilts! HEARTWORM and LYME negative, I am vaccinated and spayed, friendly to other dogs, and I LOVE people of all ages! I love to run, and being a hound breed, will follow my nose so I need a well
secured, fenced yard as I was originally found as a stray and ended up in a gassing pound!

I travel very well in the car, settling down to sleep in no time. I could really benefit from having obedience lessons which would strengthen the bond between us as well as make me a well-mannered lady. No one ever taught me, you see, and I am SOOO SMART!

Everyone says I am such a SWEET girl with so much love to give, and my eyes are truly the mirror to my soul!


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!


About 9 years old, with years left to enjoy, Snoopy needs a quiet, loving and secure ADULT home where he is the only pet. He has had a trying time being kept in a closed depanneur for 3 weeks before coming to Gerdy's. He is overweight, presumably from eating what was available in there, we do know he passed shallots he had eaten in desperation. He is in need of a reassuring, calm home as he had a frightening experience. Snoopy is sterilized, is a Chihuahus-Pom mix, vaccinated and health examined. Snoopy would enjoy quiet walks, rides in the car and LOTS of cuddles. LOVE to be held on your lap!


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! 


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!

  Schnitz - adoption pending  

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!

  Sophia - adoption pending  

My original person couldn’t keep me and so I have made my way to Gerdy’s Rescues. I am a young, less than two-year old female of 12 pounds, and am thought to be a mix of Cavalier King Charles and Pekinese. All vaccinated and prepped I am spayed and ready to go. They say I have the Sweetest of all nature, gentle, and LOVE to be held and loved. Everyone loves me!

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!

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!


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!

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!

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!

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?
