What a sweet pup! Here is our 4 month old baby, he was 26 pounds at the vets last visit. Sweet as can be, well socialized, playful and not shy at all! A mix of LAB/BOXER. Will be neutered and vaccinated, dewormed under Gerdy's Rescues. He needs someone home all day at this age, a working day is too long to leave him unattended in a crate.

My loving human companion needs to find me a new forever home as soon as possible. I am a 6 ½ year old Black German Shepherd mix girl who is sociable with dogs, children, and people—but NO CATS please! I am of medium energy, and I have a bit of separation anxiety but am fine after a few days in the new environment with the right person knowing how to correct the behaviour, and I can be crated. I am HOUSETRAINED and CLEAN in the house! Since I had a skin allergy, I was put on hypo-allergenic food and omega 3 capsules, I have been fine. I do require weekly ear cleaning by you, but that is nothing, right? I am so full of love and affection, I just want to be loved back, please! I am very affectionate. Right now I am in doggy day care/pension with a retired lady who keeps me in her house along with other regulars. I get taken for long walks and play ball and Frisbee with the other dogs, and LOVE attention! I may even be good as a second dog in your home! I am sterilized and vaccinated.I have been to obedience school and well trained but could use reminder lessons! I walk well on a leash, my person says I need someone with some dog experience and can maintain discipline with a shepherd, therefore shepherd experience a real plus. I have never bitten anything, I play well with other dogs. I LOVE Frisbee and ball—BUT I don’t bring them back!



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 white ShihTzu Mix, maybe with Maltese. I am a little girl, 6 years old and 12 ½ pounds, sterilized and vaccinated.I was abandoned by my owner, I had bladder stones so Gerdy saw I got my needed surgery.

No small kids to use me as a toy! I am a little girl and need respectful handling, I am VERY sweet natured!

  Lady & Max (bonded pair) - adoption pending  



These 2 beauties are such NICE dogs, still enjoying the pleasures of being alive! They MUST find a home willing to take in this BONDED pair, mother and son. They have always lived together, it would be cruel to separate them now! They need a retirement home where they can love YOU together, BE together playing or walking on leash, and curl up TOGETHER to sleep. They are GOOD dogs and so delicious to look at! Both dogs are healthy, get along with other dogs, even strange dogs after being introduced and getting over the excitement of meeting new dogs with their people. Vaccines are up to date, no problems like food or possession guarding, these are FAMILY DOGS ok
with kids too, though older kids who would not roughhouse would be better! A retired couple would be ideal, who are still active. They respond to SIT, HERE, DOWN, FETCH BALL! Just a couple of seniors looking for a retirement home where they will feel wanted again and useful to their people. LADY (upper photo) is 11 years young, the Mother, she is black lab mostly; her SON MAX (lower photo) is 9 years young and is a Black Lab/Shepherd mix. They came to Gerdy's after the man who loved them, passed away. PLEASE, there HAS to be Earth Angels out there to give this pair a spot of Heaven on Earth for their remaining years!


  Jack - adoption pending  

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.


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!


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


A strapping big boy, Toby is 91 pounds, a Mastiff/Lab Mix with a very sweet friendly nature, loves people. Born September 28, 2012. FULLY HOUSETRAINED and VERY GENTLE, he had to be given up by his owner because of the owner’s illness. A handsome brindle color, Toby loves affection and cuddling! Toby is neutered, vaccinated, heartworm tested negative and vet checked. His expressive face will steal your heart!


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.

Remember that extreme cold spell? Well I was out in that, suffering in the cold, when a kind lady took me in, but she cannot keep me. She has cats of her own to care of, so needs help finding a safe forever home for me. She named me Mickey. I am a HANDSOME, about a year old boy, muted grey-- just a hint of grey tabby in my pattern, a green/yellow eyed Domestic Shorthair. It was obvious that someone threw me out into the cold to die alone. I am quite talkative and pleasantly cuddly and she says I adjust well to a new environment and other cats! I am a sweet fellow and will devote myself to being there for you when you need a true friend

  Zira - adoption pending  


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?

  Barney - adoption pending

Not a mean bone in his handsome body, Barney is sterilized and vaccinated, heartworm negative, and is an IDEAL family dog. Barney thinks he is a lap dog and loves to give kisses! He charms everyone he meets! Barney may get along with cats, he likes other nice dogs.

  Max - adoption pending

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.


This sweet 3 month old kitten is a treasure! Roly is an adorable male, who is social and friendly, loves to play! He will be sterilized under Gerdy's Rescues. His kitten vaccines as well. Healthy and happy, he looks for a
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.

  Vixen - adoption pending  

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?


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!


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!

Apply ONLY to Huguette Bourret:

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

I am a 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?
