  Obelix  
     
   

MEET OBELIX: LITTLE, BIG MAN

I am almost 6 years old, and am 8 lbs of sweetness (most of the time :)). My family has to surrender me because they have 2 other chihuahuas and the municipality we live in only allows 2 dogs. A neighbour ratted on us and since I was the last one in, I am looking for a new home. Being a chihuahua I am a little complex; I am friendly, loving and very affectionate but I must admit, a little moody at times. I need my space and can keep myself busy with my blue ball or in my bed playing with my toy skunk. Really. it doesn’t take much to make me happy! I really like my 2-3 short walks everyday as long as it’s not too cold. I hate the winter and am happy to use a pipi pad and stay in the house curled up somewhere cozy. I am fine with other dogs, protective of my owner when snuggled on their lap. I can do without small children, they hassle me and I prefer adult company. I am in great health now, when I was young I had heart surgery to repair a valve. I go for normal regular check ups at the vet and all is well. Sometimes i have seasonal allergies in Spring and Fall and sometimes take some meds if I am really bothered. My little body doesn’t do well with beef, so fish, chicken and duck are my friends. I am sterilized, up to date on my shots and my heartworm medication. I would love an adult home with a fenced in yard, another dog if I can be the boss. Posted 28 June 2016

  Barbouche  
     
   

SENIORS NEED HOMES TOO!

Meet Barbuche, 10-12 year old Bichon with a very laid-back, easy-going personality. He greets new dogs of any age or size with a quick sniff, and he likes watching his foster brothers (a dog and a cat) play without wanting to get involved in the game. He would much rather goof around alone, rolling around on his back while making adorable snorts. He is learning to play with humans, but has not shown any interest yet in joining in with other animals. Barbu (nickname) was left tied up outside a school, and eventually made his way to Gerdy's. He asks to be brought onto the bed at night, but has no trouble jumping out on his own. He seems to be paper trained, but has 24/7 access to the outside world which he finds much more appealing. He loves to eat kibble, but doesn't want to have anything to do with wet food (table scraps don't count as they are always interesting no matter what!). He likes exploring new environments, tasting everything as he goes, but is quite content just staying close while waiting for the next walk. He behaves well on leash, but likes to go at a very slow pace. This little guy is fantastic company. Barbu is vaccinated, sterilized, microchipped and weighs approx. 11 lbs. Posted 20 June 2016

 

   
     
  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! Revised 22 June 2016

   
     
  Mojo  
     
   

The sweetest natured boy, he is 7 years old born January 19, 2009. 71 lbs of sheer love and affection, this sweetheart is a Labrador Retriever Mix and loves to cuddle. We are looking for an older couple with no young kids as he is a big boy. Mojo is very deserving of a secure & loving new home, and is a joy. Posted 18 June 2016

37.2 lbs is our full grown little girl Joy! She is just SO happy she never stays still, but she listens very well, with just a bit of training from you she will be just about perfect. She does her best to please and means well! She was born June 13, 2015 and is a year old. Spayed, vaccinated, Joy is good with everyone! Joy is an enigma to guess what dogs are in her family tree! A one of a kind happy MUTT of many origins! And she is proud of her heritage! Posted 18 June 2016

   
     
  Coco-Mo  
     
   

I am a dear little chap, I was born January 24, 2016, and I am a black LAB MIX male with a tiny spot of white on my chest. I weigh 32 pounds right now. My paws are a good size so if that is an indication, I will be a good size adult when grown. The reason I was given up to Gerdy’s is because I was bought by a senior couple who now find a puppy too much work to keep up to at their age. I am neutered and vaccinated, and all set to have my very own family who will love me forever! Revised 16 June 2016

   
     
  Sunny  
     
   

MEET 7 MONTH OLD “SUNNY”

Seeing Sunny puts a smile on your face! This purebred, male lhasa apso pup was tossed around to a few homes and finally surrendered to a local pound, and Gerdy took him into our care.
Basically a nice-natured, sweet boy he fell into the wrong hands. He is currently living in one of our foster homes, with 3 other small dogs and has shown only to be a smart boy who is a fast learner. He does well in a structured environment and requires a fairly experienced owner who is used to handling small breeds and who would be willing to attend puppy classes with him. Sunny adores playing with other dogs and would do best in a home with a canine friend. He requires moderate levels of exercise, loves to run around a backyard, enjoys rides in the car. We groomed him and he tolerates it, but so far this has not been his fave activity. In the right home, with love and patience Sunny will become a bright star. He is vaccinated, sterilized, heartworm tested and house trained. Revised 17 June 2016

   
     
  Atticus  
     
   

I am a handsome boy. 3.5 years old German Shepherd/Malamute/Lab mix. I am a tall chap but only weigh about 60 lbs, I really don’t take up much room. I am neutered, vaccines up to date. I am GENTLE (a bit timid & nervous) and am well trained. I know Come, Sit, Give paw. And Lie Down. I CRAVE exercise even though I am a calm dog, but if I am exercised properly I can be left alone in the house for a reasonable time. I will bark to warn you if someone comes to the door but I will stop when you tell me to, I just want you to be aware we have a visitor. I generally get along well with other dogs (big, small, old, or young) but sometimes I meet a dog I don’t feel good about then I won’t get along with him or her—I choose my friends. I am NOT good with cats and not great with children (some kids are ok but I am generally afraid of kids. I am good with people once I get to know them, but wary of strangers. And I am very food oriented so you cannot leave me alone with food I can get into and help myself! My person is heartbroken to give me up, but has taken a job in a foreign country where it is in my best interest not to be but to stay here. I am VERY handsome. I am looking to be a part of your life. We can exercise together, be pals together relaxing, I am looking for someone who will be a true pal, I can depend on you and you can depend on me, a real relationship of love and trust.

  Kaya  
     
   

KAYA THE MAGNIFICENT

Kaya’s looks defy the note on her file that she is a mix of Pomeranian and long haired Chihuahua, we think this elegant beauty may be a Papillon mix. She is 6 1/2 years old and 20+ lbs . Kaya came to Gerdys quite terrified from the abandonment but has slowly become more social, following her foster mom everywhere. Once she knows you Kaya loves to cuddle up on the sofa, wags her tail for more loving and gives kisses. She LOVES her doggie friends at the foster home and would probably do well living with one. Kaya barks at the doorbell and at any strange noises outside so should live in a home vs. an apartment. She is used to a fenced-in backyard where she loves to race around and favours tug of war with a rope toy. An experienced dog family, no young children (16 +) and a house with a fenced-in yard would make a match for Kay
a. She is sterilized, vaccinated. Revised 23 June 2016

   
     
  Mandy  
     
   

SMALL BUT MIGHTY
Mandy is an adorable mix of miniature Schnauzer and Yorkie. She is 7+ years old, sweet and affectionate. Weighing in at only 10 lbs, Mandy is no pushover. She loves to hang out with other dogs but can be a bit bossy if things don’t go her way. She loves her walks, roaming in a fenced-in garden, fetching her toys. She loves the one she's with and will follow you everywhere. Mandy is not a fan of being confined or left alone for too many hours, so a dog experienced family with flexible hours, and another small dog would be ideal. No apartments or condos and kids 10 plus.

  Yumi  
     
   

Yumi is a yummy 6 year old Beagle. She LOVES CHILDREN and is so happy to have them as playmates. Yumi is overweight at 38 pounds (she has gone without proper exercise for too long) so, human housemate(s) young and old who love to exercise and eat healthy would be perfect. She is a delightful girl whose owner gave her up because she is moving into a small apartment. Yumi has a very pretty face, beautiful Beagle markings and expressive eyes. She is curious and independent,---a bit hard -headed. A Beagle-familiar house is sought for Yumi and adopter must be willing to walk her safely on leash for regular exercise, or have her chase a ball or frisbee in a securely fenced yard as Beagles follow their nose if they get loose. She is spayed, vaccinated and heart worm tested negative. Revised 5 May 2016

   
     
  Goliath  
     
   

We are looking for a true Beagle lover for this dear boy! Goliath is 8 years old, was with the same family since he was 8 weeks old and was recently traded in for a newborn baby. Goliath is a sweet and very affectionate boy who would love attention and allthough he doesn’t mind other dogs outside on a walk he would prefer to be your one and only. Goliath adores children and loves to be petted and to snuggle with them. Being a Beagle, Goliath is not suited for an apartment but would flourish in a house with a securely fenced-in yard. He has a moderate energy level and gets excited around people—he actually “talks” to them with conviction! Goliath adores CAR RIDES and leash WALKS! He is an extremely handsome representative of his breed, and a happy, gentleman-dog. Revised 10 Apr 2016

   
     
  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! Revised 25 Apr 2016

   
     
  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.

  Peanut - adoption pending  
     
   

PEANUT IS LOOKING FOR LOVE

Meet Peanut, an 8 year old, 5 lb chihuahua who after being abandoned by his first family and left at a shelter, was adopted by an elderly person who after 8 months became ill and the family dumped him once again at another shelter. Understandably he is very sad and in need of a stable home where he can feel safe and certain that he will be loved forever. His is super friendly, low energy, and loves other dogs. Peanut is housetrained but in winter on very cold days he prefers to stay in the house and use his pee pad. Due to neglect from former owners, Peanut’s teeth were in bad shape and although he is left with only a few, he still LOVES to eat. An experienced family, with another dog, kids 13+, and a house vs. an apartment (he can be a bit vocal), would be the best situation for Peanut to thrive in. Peanut is sterilized, vaccinated, microchipped. Revised 21 June 2016

   
     
  Zoe - adoption pending  
     
   

ZOE IS A MODEL FOR HER BREED

This 1 1/2 year old Jack Russell is a super smart, energetic girl who would be great for someone interested in bonding through further obedience training, agility, etc. As expected, she is very energetic, loves to play fetch and is excellent on her long leash walks. Zoe would do best in a home with a fenced-in area to run around in or catch a frisbee, etc. She loves people, is affectionate and will come for cuddles. Zoe is used to being THE center of attention in her former home so she is selective as to which type of dog she can co-habitate with. She is housetrained, sterilized and up to date on vaccines. Zoe would be great for kids 10 plus. Not cat tested. Revised 14 June 2016

COMPASSIONATE PLACEMENT WITH DONATION

Beautiful and sweet MAYA is 13 1/2years old and 42 pounds. Her owner passed away and she needs a new forever home! She still has a lot of love to give. She appears to be a Border Collie Mix , spayed, vaccinated, heartworm tested negative, a very sweet girl looking for a peaceful retirement home. Because of her age NO other dogs or cats in the home, NO small children—she is a senior in great shape but is retired now wanting peace & quiet. Poor Maya lived her entire life with badly infected ears that were never treated and gradually her frequent ear shaking resulted in her ears curling up on the ends permanently. Gerdy had her ears treated but the curly effect will always be there now. She has time left, would LOVE a new home! Is your heart big enough for Maya? Revised 12 June 2016

MINI DINA

Dina is a 4 year old mini poodle weighing in at just under 6 pounds. She was bought off the internet by a woman who, after a few days, decided not to keep her and brought her to a local pound. This tiny dancer is a bit timid at first but warms up in an instant and loves to be held. Dina loves other dogs and should live with another pooch her size. She requires minimal exercise, is not a barker and is housetrained. Because Dina is tiny, fragile and timid her best match would be a home with no children under 16, and somebody around a good part of the day. She is vaccinated, microchipped, sterilized.

“Hi, my name is Harley and I am a 5 year old, 57 pound Gordon Setter/Lab mix. I guess you figured it out, I was named after the motorcycle! I am a relaxed and affectionate dog looking for a new family to be part of as my owner is moving to Europe and can not take me with her. I have learned how to walk on a leash very nicely, I can sit, stay, lie down, roll over, give a high five, play dead, and come to you on command. I really like to impress my owner and listen to their every need. I am not picky when it comes to food and I have learned to mind my own business while others are eating. I love meeting new people and other dogs, I go to the dog parks frequently and play the whole time. Did I mention that I am REALLY good at fetch? If you can throw a Frisbee, I will run at lightning speed to get it back to you. On the other hand, when I am at home, I am the most relaxed dog and love to sleep all day. Cuddles are my weakness, along with chasing squirrels. I can probably live with another dog and with children 8 plus. I am up to date with vaccines and I am neutered.” Revised 23 May 2016

With Gerdys Rescue I was sterilized—no more puppies for me and received everything that I need, vaccines, good food etc. I am a tiny girl, mix of Boxer and Pit bull and weigh only 35 lbs. I have a lovely nature, I am very affectionate, and will be so grateful to find people who will give me real love I love all people big and small. I am best with no other pets i.e. NO CATS, NO DOGS in the household for now as I need to work on my doggie socialization skills, and would do really well if you had a backyard for me to run around in and play.

Hans is about 7 to 8 years old, and is a VERY kind, affectionate dog. He is amazingly energetic, as is his breed, German Shorthair Pointer. A GOOD all around boy, eager to please. HOUSETRAINED, he LOVES the opportunity to lay on a rug. Very curious in the house but responds obediently to “ah ah!” when he checks out counter tops, etc. He needs to exercise, so a house with a securely fenced spacious yard would be ideal, if you play with him of course there. He loves to run about. Lots of walks will keep him happy too. Not for city living, and no cats please. We recommend a dog seat belt in the car as he would be up front with the driver in no time! He is very social & friendly! A jolly nature, Hans is the eternal optimist that he will find a home he so richly deserves! Revised 16 Apr 2016

Hi, I am a 6 year old male Family Dog, Lab/Huskey cross breed, sterilized, and vaccinated.
I LOVE being petted and I give kisses! I am curious, energetic, affectionate and welcoming when people visit. I eat hypoallergenic food and LOVE Brocolli, apples, and salad! I take a Thyroid pill once a day that I need the rest of my life, but it is inexpensive and no problem to give me.
I do not like to be crated but I do well in the house loose. My days are like nights—I eat, sleep, walk about the house without problems, I am well adjusted. But if you leave me TOO long in the house I might peepee but I am housetrained for a reasonable time of absence. I am not in regular contact with other dogs but with grooming during the year I am around other dogs and I am fine.
I am good with children, I like to lick their faces, not a mean bone in me! I have a lot to give a family who will cherish my qualities, my owner can no longer keep me, and she told me Gerdy will find me a GREAT new home.

THIS CHILI IS A HOT PROPERTY

Almost 5 years old this little chihuahua guy is not just a pretty face...but a lot more! He is small but mighty with a sweet yet quirky personality. Chilli is athletic, he loves to go jogging or to play fetch in a fenced-in yard. He adores going places, anywhere, in a bag, in a purse, in the car. But he can also be a couch potato and hang out on the deck in the sun, in his bed, or in your bed. He is affectionate, loveable, cuddly and too cute for words.Chili is obsessed with humans, ALL humans ALL ages. He craves and needs human company ALL of the time. Chili’s love of people will make him great dog for pet therapy. His ability to snuggle, his cuteness factor, his exaggerated ears, put a smile on people’s faces.When left alone he will bark and possibly get himself into trouble. His new family will have to be patient and able to work further on his elevated level of separation anxiety. He is a little guy who lacks self-confidence and although he is leash reactive when he sees new dogs on the street, he would do best with a laid-back, confident small dog in the house. Chili can only handle dogs less than 8 pounds, he is terrified of the bigger ones!Chili is housetrained especially in the warmer months as long as he has a regular schedule, however the winter is cold for him and some days he just can’t get out there, so pipi pads are mandatory.He is in great health, neutered, up to date on vaccines and microchipped.

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!

They call me a gentle giant, because of my size and my truly loving nature. My siblings and I were rescued from a situation that did not allow us any contact with the outside world. So when we came to the shelter (almost three years ago!) we were so scared of everyone we met. Because I am such a big fellow, and I have a very loud bark, people tend to be scared of me. I am sad about this – cause I am so loving when I get to know you! My caregivers and the volunteers who visit me think I am wonderful. That makes me very happy and I usually give them a big, fat kiss for that. I am about seven years old, and a mix of shepherd and husky. The family I need will have to be very calm and live in a peaceful environment. Loud noise  scares me a lot and I am not used to cars or the noise of city streets. I cannot live in a home
 with cats or small dogs, and because of my size and timid nature, I should not live with children
 under twelve years old. I know that I’m asking a lot, but surely there is someone out there for
me to spend quiet days with. Please send an email to bonbear31@hotmail.com or call Bonnie

My finders could not keep me so I am here keeping my toes crossed that a true bunny lover will take me on as a pet again. Not only am I adorably super cute, I am very inquisitive. I would like to go to a home that knows how to care for us Dutch (Netherland) Rabbits and will give me a good, and loving life. I never want to be put outside again to try to survive on my own. Please, if you can responsibly care for me indoors contact: info@gerdysrescue.org Posted 5 Apr 2016

CATS for ADOPTION
 
  Olaf  
     
   

Meet Olaf, the most handsome, affectionate, gentle and quiet Siamese the world has ever seen. Due to absolutely no fault of his own (but rather, due to human health-related circumstances), his current owner needs to find a loving family that will welcome Olaf into their home -forever! Olaf is about 6 years young, current on all vaccines, microchipped, sterilized and (unfortunately) fully declawed. He was adopted from the shelter, so not much is known about his previous life. Once adopted, his current owner made sure that he had the best care possible, as minor health problems were taken care of (dental cleaning, teeth removal, special diet to regain weight, blood & urine tests, etc). Unfortunately it was then discovered that Olaf suffers from early kidney failure (stage 1 or 2, at the most) - but it is entirely manageable through diet (aka canned food) and proper hydration, no medication required. According to his vet, with proper care, he has several quality years ahead of him; this cuddlebug still plays like a (slightly cautious) kitten!! Olaf has an amazing personality. He is a quiet, slightly shy cat (so he can get anxious in new situations), very sweet natured. Once he warms up to you, he will follow you around, jump on your lap and cuddle for hours on end - but on his terms. He loves to put his head in your neck and give you kisses. He will sleep on your bed, or in your arms if you will let him. He has never shown any signs of aggressiveness and rarely meows (unless he wants to be fed when his bowl is empty). He has been trained not to jump on tables, counters, you name it, and has never broken anything in the house. He has zero litterbox issues. He is a fantastic cat and his owner (while completely heartbroken that she has to rehome him) hopes to find a kind and responsible family for this stunner. In short, Olaf is one heck of a special cat, and it would be better if he were adopted by someone who is home most of the time. He needs a human presence and is at his happiest sitting on your lap, purring life away. Perhaps someone who is retired, who works from home or who works regular 9-5 hours or a family with respectful children who will not play rough with the cat; he is after all quite gentle. Please contact info@gerdysrescue.org for further information. Revised 19 June 2016

   
     
  Lady  
     
   

Lady is a dear and dainty girl, very feminine, and petite in build. Vaccinated, she will be spayed shortly under Gerdy’s. Lady was a very fortunate girl, she was found in Verdun outside, pregnant and abandoned, yet she herself is little more than a kitten. Due to her life on the street and trying to survive, she is terrified of other cats and dogs, but she LOVES people! She would like to be the only cat in the family with no dogs. She LOVES to be held and purrs contentedly, people to her are WONDERFUL! A beautiful domestic longhair, she is still somewhat of a baby herself, but very elegant and regal.

  Sparkle & Storm  
     
   

SPARKLE (that’s me on the left!)

I am a female kitten about 6 months old. I like exploring, climbing and roast chicken! I will do anything for roast chicken! I do not like being outside or unexpected loud noises. I LOVE other cats and it would be great to have an older brother or sister cat to keep me company. If I wasn’t a cat, I’d be...a mountain climber! I LOVE scaling everything! I have lived with a small dog and am comfortable with dogs as long as they are gentle with me. I am sterilized, dewormed and up to date on my vaccines. Storm and me were living outside until a nice lady decided it was too cold for tiny kitten to live outdoors so she trapped us, brought us inside, then asked Gerdy for help. Gerdy placed us in a foster home, I was very shy & scared at first, but I have made lots of progress. In fact, I am the bravest! I might be a little timid when you first meet me but with a little love and patience I will warm right up to you. If you are interested in adopting me or Storm, please email info@gerdysrescue.org

STORM (that’s me on the 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! Again, email info@gerdysrescue.org if you are interested in adopting me! Posted 17 May 2016

   
     
  Jack  
     
   

Jack has recovered from his amputation surgery on his hind leg and is all set to go to a new home! His foster family finds him an AMAZING cat in every way. SUPER affectionate, he loves to lay on your chest when you are laying down, holding your face between his 2 front paws, so gently, one on either side, while purring you to sleep! He gets around totally unaware he has only 3 legs, what he is missing in a leg he makes up for with his big heart—he utterly LOVES dogs, other cats, and people! Social Jack is neutered and vaccinated and all set to go to a new and loving home where his fine attributes will be appreciated. Jack has a rather small build but a long body, he is graceful and a delight to watch,-- a gymnast personified. AND he LOVES to be cuddled and fussed over! Revised 11 Apr 2016

   
     
  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. He really deserves a wonderful home and will reward you with being your best pal and confidant, repaying you with all his gratitude and devotion. Posted 1 Apr 2016

 

   
     
  Checkers  
     
   

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!

COMPASSIONATE PLACEMENT WITH DONATION

I am a very sweet neutered and vaccinated 13 year old boy whose beloved mistress has passed away. I was dearly loved and Gerdy promised me I would be loved again and would be safe. I am SUCH a sweet cattie, and I do not act my age! I am in good shape, I do my yoga exercises every morning and night. Maybe you & I can do them together! I am very cuddly and a very good listener to any troubles you may have, I also like classical music but not opera, just easy listening to go to sleep. All I need is a spot in the warm sun on your carpet or in a window, I will wait for you to come home from work and YOU can massage my toes after my hard day waiting for you to come back to me. I ask for nothing but your love and eats, maybe a few cat treats!

   
     
  Fred  
     
   

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?

   
     
  Minnie  
     
   

MINNIE is about 2 years old, a young mother, likely Roly (adopted) was 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.

   
     
  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?

  Gris  
     
   

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! Revised 31 Jan 2016

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!

Alfie’s character is just like most male Bengals….inquisitive, active and yet as my son says a “scardy cat”, loving to be in his familiar surroundings where he feels most comfortable and safe. Mango is super affectionate, loves to be held a patted and purrs to show his appreciation. They are best buds and love each other. Alfie & Mango will both be turning 5 years old in September….they were born in 2011. They have their shots, are both neutered, not declawed but are house cats. They are not allowed out to roam the streets.

SHARKIE
Hi, my name is Sharkie and I am quite the handsome boy, don’t you think!? I was taken into foster by my foster mom some time ago. She took me in from the SPCA who didn’t know much about my past except that I was probably victim to some scary stuff because I was feral and people really, really scared me. I would basically stay in the corner of my cage and hiss at anyone who came near me or tried to touch me. Foster mom was scared that no one would want me because of that and brought me home.
I should tell you that though my foster mom would agree that I have made HUGE progress, I am still a very shy guy. See me as the strong, silent type. It’s cool though because foster mom doesn’t push me or try to make me do any of the other clingy cat things that my fur siblings do. They are constantly all over her, begging for food and snuggles and one of them has even started to do his business outside of the litter box. Foster mom is quite overwhelmed by that these days which is why she is hoping that someone else can take me in. It’s too bad though, I will miss my 3 cat siblings. You see, I share my space with one feline sister and 2 feline brothers. We all get along really well and I am hoping that I can find a home with a feline sibling or two since they help calm me down. I also have a human brother. He is 9 and we kind of just let each other do our things. I leave him alone and he leaves me alone. Sometimes if he gets too close, I may hiss a little bit cause it makes me nervous but i have never ever bitten or hurt someone for trying to love me. I really love when foster mom gives me treats. I take them from her hands because I trust her, but that is as close as I will get. Sometimes when I am really feeling brave, I will curl up next to her on the couch or sleep at the foot of her bed with the other fur balls. If she moves too much though, I find somewhere else nice and comfy to sleep. Really, all I need is a comfy bed, toys and somewhere i can do my claws, good food and some treats. I am usually a quiet guy and although my feline siblings try and convince me otherwise, I stay off the counter and out of trouble. If you give me a chance, I’ll keep you company, always lounging around close by and did I mention that I always keep foster mom company while she watches the The Bachelor?! Will you give me your final rose?

Coucou ! Mon nom est Sharkie. Je suis beau, n’est-ce pas ?! J’ai été placé en foyer d’accueil il y a un certain temps. Avant cela, j’étais à la SPCA. On ne savait pas grande chose sur mon passé, excepté que j’étais un chat errant et que j’ai probablement été victime de choses assez difficiles parce que j’avais très, très peur des humains. Je restais dans un coin de ma cage et je menaçais quiconque s’approchait ou essayait de me toucher. C’est alors qu’une gentille dame a ouvert son coeur et son foyer et m’a emmené chez elle. Elle craignait que personne ne veuille m’adopter. Depuis lors, j’ai fait ÉNORMÉMENT de progrès, mais je suis encore un minou très timide. Ma maman du foyer d’accueil pourrait vous le confirmer. On pourrait me considérer comme un gars du type fort et silencieux. Ma maman ne me force pas à faire des choses ni à imiter mes congénères. En effet, les autres chats ici sont constamment autour de maman. Ils demandent de la nourriture et des câlins, et l’un d’entre eux a même commencé à faire ses besoins hors de la litière. Maman du foyer d’accueil est dépassée par les événements, et c’est pour cela qu’elle espère que quelqu’un d’autre pourra me prendre chez eux. C’est dommage parce que mes trois compagnons félins vont me manquer. Ils m’aident à me calmer. J’espère donc avoir des chats dans mon nouveau foyer d’accueil. Ici j’ai aussi un frère humain. Il a 9 ans et nous gardons mutuellement nos distances. Parfois, s’il s’approche trop de moi, je vais cracher un peu parce qu’il me rend nerveux, mais je n’ai jamais mordu ni blessé quelqu'un qui a essayé de m’aimer.J’adore recevoir des gâteries de ma maman du foyer d’accueil. Je les prends directement de sa main parce que j’ai confiance en elle. Mais je ne vais pas m’approcher davantage. Parfois, si j’en ai le courage, je vais me blottir contre elle sur le sofa, ou dormir au pied de son lit avec les autres boules de poils. Mais si maman bouge trop, je vais déménager dans un autre endroit confortable. En fait, tout ce dont j’ai besoin c’est un lit douillet, quelques jouets, de la bonne nourriture, quelques gâteries et un endroit où faire mes griffes. Je suis un chat très silencieux, je ne grimpe pas sur les comptoirs et je ne cause pas de problèmes.Si vous me donnez une chance, je resterai près de vous pour vous tenir compagnie. Est-ce que je vous ai dit que je reste toujours près de ma maman du foyer d’accueil lorsqu’elle regarde Le Bachelier à la télé? Me donneriez-vous votre rose finale?

Miss is a sweetheart of a cat, needing a new home because for the first time in her 11 years she is no longer getting along with the other cats of the family.
She is very affectionate to her humans, adapts well to new environments and adores being around everything you do. She has no current medical issues requiring medication, but she does have a cleft palate which needs to be monitored.
Miss is sterilised and has been vaccinated (may not be up to date). Not declawed, and is a solely indoor cat. She however, does do well on leash in a backyard setting but needs to be supervised.

We are rehoming our two Tabbies (neutered males) Mint (5) and Goma (4). These two are a bonded pair and would do best in a home without young children or other pets. Mint is a passionate cat; once you capture his heart he is yours. He has a mild case of asthma. He understands the human world and listens to instructions. Goma is all about playing and having fun; he will make friends with you and jump off and bounce back into your lap for some snuggle time!

Attached are photos of my two lovely cats: Frodo and Keegan. Here is a brief bio of each:

Frodo (small orange ginger): Frodo is so sweet, cute and playful. As soon as you sit down, he will come over and curl up on your lap. He really loves being outside so would be much happier in a home where there is a garden. Frodo is a bit shy around strangers (at first), and doesn’t really like being around dogs or small children. Instead of meowing, he makes very endearing squeaky noises when he wants to talk to you (e.g. when he’s waiting for you to feed him!).

Keegan (big grey tabby): Keegan is big baby who loves to receive and give affection. He almost looks like a Maine Coon but doesn’t have the fluffy tail. His favourite activity is sitting by the sink while you are brushing your teeth and drink water as it drips from the tap! He also enjoys being outside but only if the weather is nice. He loves being around people and follows you around like a puppy.

The two cats are amicable but not the best of friends, so there is no problem if they are adopted separately.

nship@dwpv.com

Tigger is a senior citizen ( 14 years young and still has a full coat of pale orange and white fur) looking for a loving home to retire in. He was rescued as a kitten from the urban jungle in New York City and quickly became a loving and loyal friend to his owner. He loves catnip and catnaps, and doesn't like being brushed. Initially a bit wary of strangers, he will adjust and he loves nothing more than cuddling with his person or perhaps trying to sit on their head if they are positioned just so on the couch. He would do best as the only pet in the home or perhaps one other cat. Ideally no children or children old enough not to tug at him. All he needs is a lot of love and attention right now, which unfortunately his current owners are no longer able to provide. He is declawed on his front paws and has all his vaccinations ( for an indoor cat). He loves to sneak outside but has never really on his own out there. He has a favourite stuffed animal and we can provide a litter box and cat carrier if required as well as his pet bed.

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.

Sumbul is a big, handsome, neutered black male, likely around five or six years old. He appeared in the neighbourhood, all skin and bones, and very frightened of people. It didn't take him long to get over his fear and to gain some weight - a little bit too much. Sumbul is very affectionate and can't get enough of head and neck scratches - if you think you're finished brushing or petting him, he may disagree and will pull on your hand for more. Sumbul gets along well with other cats, the dog and children. His picture doesn't do him justice, but it's hard to photograph a black cat.

Wallace is a fabulous big black and white neutered male. As you can see from his photo, he has some battle scars. He was the dominant male in a feral colony, except he wasn't feral. Some catnip and attention was all he needed to start following me around and when he showed up with a large abscess on his face, I brought him home. Wallace needs a home where he will be the only cat - and he doesn't like dogs either. Wallace is FIV+. I had his teeth removed as he was having some gum issues (common for FIV+ cats) and his mouth has been fine since then. He recently developed urinary crystals, and has to be on a special diet (CD) that can be purchased at a vet clinic; he is fine as long as he eats only that food. Wallace had a tough life on the street. I have always found that the biggest, toughest street males turn out to be the most loving cats, and Wallace is no exception. He is a wonderful cat who loves giving head butts and getting lots of good head scratches. He is a special cat who needs a special home.
