  Cooper  
     
   

Three words describe Cooper: affectionate, playful, intelligent. Just 5 months old, Cooper currently lives in a foster home with a cat, and 3 dogs, large and small, who have been excellent mentors. Thanks to them, Cooper is practically house-trained! When Cooper isn’t exploring and playing, he can be found cuddled up to another dog or a human. Perfectly content to lie quietly on your lap in the car, delighted to go for neighbourhood walks, Cooper is ready to be your devoted friend, 24/7.
To help Cooper continue to build his confidence and security, a home that already has another friendly dog would be best; as would a kind adult who works from home and kids who are 12 years or older. Cooper is a keen student and would likely be a superstar in puppy classes!

Not suitable for an apartment.

   
     
  Ricky  
     
   

This 9 year old male Yorkie was found wandering in the streets and never claimed. He is a charming boy who loves to sit on your lap and be cuddled. He is great with other dogs and cats too.
Ricky loves going for walks and can use the exercise as he weighs in on the chubby side. He also adores car rides and will accompany you everywhere.
He would be a great choice for an adult family with other pets or for someone retired looking for a constant companion.

   
     
  Mickey  
     
   

Mickey is a fun-loving, affectionate miniature poodle approximately 6 years old. Mickey gets along famously with his feline foster brother, and showers everyone he meets with affection and joy. He would love nothing more than to spend his days on someone's lap, but is otherwise quite happy to curl up in his bed and occupy himself with his toys. He is peepee pad trained, but has beautiful manners on the leash, and even likes wearing his winter coat and especially his boots. He is calm around other small dogs (fearful of big ones) and cats. He sits well on command, and is learning to stay away from his food bowl until permission is given. Mickey would love nothing more than someone who is around the house a lot, so if you work from home or have a flexible schedule that would be ideal. Mickey could live with kids 12 plus.

   
     
  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!

   
     
  Buddy - adoption pending  
     
   

Our Buddy wants to be YOUR Buddy! At 2 years old, this amazing Border Collie mix is a wonderfully sweet boy. He is neutered, vaccinated, heartworm tested negative, vet examined, and in great shape. Friendly and sociable, he will be a great addition to a family. He loves affection! A good belly rub is what he loves. And is nicely active, ready for a good walk or exercise. He will keep you in shape as he loves long walks. A real nice dog and very good looking,with a face that shows you his very soul. A total Prince Charming of dogs!

   
     
  Jack  
     
   

Jack is an incredibly friendly cat in spite of enduring cold nights outside. It is estimated that he is a young cat, probably only about a year old. In Gerdy's care, he had to have his leg amputated but as you can see in the picture, it is healing perfectly! Anyone who has ever had an orange cat knows what great characters they have and Jack is no exception.

   
     
  Jet  
     
   

Jet came to Gerdy's after he was abandoned by his owners. He is eleven years old, born on June 15. 2004 and in spite of finding himself in new circumstances, he remains friendly and outgoing. Jet is declawed on all 4 paws. He has been sterilized, vaccinated and tested negative for FIV and he desperately wants a home to grow old where he knows the best is yet to be!

   
     
  Mandy  
     
   

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, loves roaming the garden and wants to 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 12 plus.

   
     
  Indy  
     
   

Saved from a pound in Outaouais where this handsome brute was a stray, Indy is happy, high spirited and ready for a good time. If you like to hike, run, play ball, Indy is your man. Not just a pretty face, his looks and sweet personality are a metaphor for an all round great dog. And he’s no wimp, he is a strong, active, thinking boy. His perfect match would be dog-experienced family or a single person, in a house with a fenced in yard. Kids 15+. Possibly another dog, flexible hours. Indy is 7 years young. sterilized, up to date on vaccines and weighs 55 lbs.

   
     
  Molly  
     
   

Delightful 8 year old Molly is a sweet-natured and playful tri-coloured spayed and vaccinated Basset
Hound. This loving dog enjoys sitting on laps (even if bigger than your average lap dog!) and chewing on her favourite toys. And of course the Basset favourite occupation--taking long walks on leash. She's never met a person she didn't greet enthusiastically with affection! This beauty needs a Basset-familiar family
ideally and of course as she is a Hound, a securely fenced yard to play in is essential, because Bassets have such a strong sense of smell they would follow a scent and not look back! A home with someone home during the day for company is ideal for a Basset, as they are very social and love to be around their humans! Crating when you are out or at night is
suggested. Good Golly, Miss Molly--Bassets ROCK!

*Previous Basset Owners Need Only Apply*. Molly needs a home where the people know the breed.

   
     
  Oscar  
     
   

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. I am just the RIGHT age—and what you see is what you get! A loving boy offering you my heart for the rest of my days!

   
     
  Ruby  
     
   

Hi, I have just been given up because not enough time for me anymore, sadly. I am already 8 years old, but you’d never guess that as I LOVE to play fetch the ball, your arm will get tired before I do! I need a securely fenced spacious yard for you to exercise me in, as well as take me for long walks, I need someone with TIME for me, I will help you keep fit in fact! If you like to run, I am your girl! I am obedient, I want to please you all the time, I DO listen! I bark when someone comes to the door to tell you someone is there, but I am nor a barker otherwise. I calm down as soon as people are inside. I don’t beg at the table either! Very calm in the house if I have been well exercised, no couch potatoes for me please. I need to be active with you! I am trustworthy of children, I like to sniff them when meeting and get acquainted. I love to swim, and I ran with my family when they cross country skied. Most of the time I am mellow when left in the house as long as I am exercised well first. I LOVE being petted but I am not super needy, just a nice companion dog. I come when called, even when I am playing. A I am nice, soft and I LOVE to cuddle! I am up to date with my vaccinations and in very good health, as well as heartworm negative and I am on heartworm preventative. My person said I am a mix of Lab, Collie, and Something Else, but I think I am a Beautiful Mutt, a good sized larger dog. Will you make me YOUR forever girl, my devotion is boundless!

   
     
  Hans  
     
   

Hans is looking for a real home. He was found abandoned on a country road. We have had Hans neutered, vaccinated, and heartworm tested negative. 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!

   
     
  Little Steve  
     
   

This sweet boy is Great Dane/Lab mix. 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.

Call or email Gerdy to discuss Little Steve:

  Maya  
     
   

COMPASSIONATE PLACEMENT WITH DONATION

Beautiful and sweet MAYA is 13 years old, her owner passed away and Gerdy’s has taken in this GOOD dog. She needs a new forever home! She still has a lot of love to give. She appears to be a Golden Retriever Mix, spayed, vaccinated, heartworm tested negative, a very sweet girl looking for a peaceful retirement home. Is your heart big enough for Maya?

   
     
  Pookie  
     
   

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?

   
     
  Goliath  
     
   

We are looking for a true Beagle lover for this dear boy! Experience with the Beagle breed a necessity. Not for an apartment or condo, needs a house with a securely fenced in yard to play in with you. Goliath is 8 years old, neutered and vaccinated, and had been with the same family since he was 8 weeks old. He has a moderate energy level and gets excited around people—he “talks” to them with joy! He is so friendly, good with most dogs and seems to prefer the bigger ones! He loves to be petted and has no food or toy possession. As he does not like to be alone, we suggest he would be a good companion to another dog or have someone who is not gone from home a lot. He does not tolerate a crate but should be in restricted space when alone. He likes to drink a lot of water, which should be restricted to 3 times a day. Likes KIDS, other dogs and especially CAR RIDES and leash WALKS! Would likely be a cat chaser as he loves to chase squirrels, so NO CATS! A real Gentleman Dog, lots of affection in him, not a mean bone, and a HAPPY DOG!

   
     
  Minka  
     
   

I am a sweet girl and very deserving of a loving and secure home. I had a rough start in life, giving birth to 10 puppies when I was a puppy myself of 7 months old! I am now 10 months old and going to be sterilized under Gerdy’s Rescues shortly. I was rescued by a concerned person from a bad situation as you can tell, and now I am a Gerdy dog, being vetted and everything done that I need, vaccines, etc. I am a mix of mainly Boxer mixed with Pitbull, I have a lovely nature, and will be so grateful to find people who will give me real love because I will love you forever. (No cats please.)

   
     
  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!

   
     
  Meadow  
     
   

I am a senior Golden Retriever 9 years old female, spayed and vaccinated. I hit a rough patch in my life when my elderly human passed away in the house
and finally the police arrived and took him away. No one gave ME a second look. No one saw the huge abcess on my side or the condition I was in physically because my human had not been able to care for me properly. I was DREADFULLY overweight too, not the pretty girl you see here in the photo. I was a MESS! Oh, did I say that the police removed me from the house and tied me up in my yard when they left? I was there for a few days before someone noticed me tied up there on a tether. I was not a well girl. Gerdy
took me over and 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. I choose my dog friends! I have not had an easy life and much socialization, basically I have relied on myself all those sad years my person could not look after me properly. I will need no other pets in my new home, no kids. I am a rather independAnt dog used to doing things
my way. Because I need help restructuring my life socially. I need someone who will work patiently with me, leaving me to myself when I want to be, and
understanding I am a work in progress. I am rather opinionated. If you are a confident and patient person interested in helping me socially, please contact Gerdy. I am spayed, vaccinated, heartworm negative.

   
     
  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.

COMPASSIONATE PLACEMENT

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! If you think you are the one for these two beauties please call:

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.

Zoey  is a 6 year old Rottweiler/Lab mix – she was a street dog before she was rescued from a shelter in Toronto a few years ago but due to a change in the living situation of her owner, we offered to foster her while searching for her new home.  She is a quiet girl who loves to lie in the sun and nap. A belly scratch and a cookie will easily win over her heart. She does suffer from separation anxiety which will require understanding, patience and guidance to help her deal with it. She wants a home where she is not left alone during the day and to not spend her day in a crate while her family is at work. She enjoys car rides and loves her walks and doesn’t demand lengthy ones but she can pull and seem aggressive when coming across squirrels, cats or other dogs. A calm home environment with children 14+, no cats and no small dogs would make her happy. Zoey is a very sweet, loveable and adoring dog in the right home. She is very loyal to the ones that love her and needs her next home to be forever and to enjoy her senior years in comfort and with companionship where she is not left alone, she gives the best hugs and kisses.

I am a sweet 1 year old AMERICAN STAFFORDSHIRE TERRIER a very dear Pitbull boy, neutered and vaccinated. I am very energetic and playful but my best feature is that I am SUPER AFFECTIONATE! I give LOTS of kisses! I have lived with an older dog just fine and a cat. I chase her to play but she is old and will have none of my desire to play with her! I am a wonderful boy. I am looking for a loving Pitbull experienced home where I will be treasured as a family member. Having any puppy in a home is like having a new baby, so if you are busy with young kids, you have enough to keep you busy. Also being in a crate all day while you work is not fun for a pup, I need to go out more frequently than a mature dog. I would likely love a puppy training class and lots of walks as I am very sociable. This handsome boy (ME) is waiting not too patiently for my match made in Heaven!

Contact Rosa (613) 600-0811

We found an adorable domesticated gray bunny rabbit who seems to have escaped or been released into the wild by her former owners. We wanted to ensure she was safe so caught her and took her to the vet and were informed that she is a healthy female Netherland Dwarf, estimated age 1-2years of age. We cannot keep her and do no want to take her to the SPCA. We are looking for a loving, permanent home for Sunshine (or Little Miss Sunshine), ideally her new owner would be someone who loves bunnies and/or who has previous experience with bunnies. The pictures don't do her justice as she is super cute and lovable, and loves to be petted. She has a good disposition, is inquisitive, toilet-trained and loves to eat carrots, lettuce, and herbs like parsley.

NOTE: Gerdy will have her spayed before adoption.

Strikingly beautiful, this bonded pair was found homeless and in a desperate situation. Were it not for their "earth angel", they would have, most likely, succumbed to the harsh elements of nature. They are always snuggled together so must be adopted together! They love to be petted and praised for as long as possible. Their experience outside has been cruel so they are now looking forward to a life to be lived indoors only! Very sweet natured and docile in temperament, they will be a loving addition to a home where they will be treasured.

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.
