  • The babies were even more excited than I thought!! They ate almost an entire can of KMR between the 7 of them! 😧Maybe they really will eat me out of house and home! 😂 The good news is, Speedwagon had been on a bit of a hunger strike the past two days and I was having to force feed her formula (Petlac- we ran out of KMR over the weekend and that was all they had at the store) but as soon as she got a taste of that KMR she ate twice as much as usual!! Turns out that she’s just a picky eater! 😂 I’d also left a small plate of gruel in there to gauge their interest, and I caught both JoJo and Speedwagon eating from it! Previously, Lisa Lisa and Dio had been the only ones to try, so it may be time to start weaning soon! So excited for these cuties!! #bottlefeeding #kmr #kmraddicts #bottlebabies #4weeksold #adoptdontshop #jojokitties

If you’ve ever wondered what people are referring to when they call a dog “bubba”, they’re talking about dogs like Jake. Big ol’ blocky headed, goofy, lover boys who want smooches and butt scratches all day.  Jake is around 2 years old. He loves other dogs. Because of his big dad bod, he would do best in a home without little little kids and small animals to knock over. Adopt Jake! www.phillybullyteam.com #adoptdontshop #phillybullyteam #dontbullymybreed #phbtjake

  • Name:Caesar  Breed:Pit Bull  Age:6yrs  Gender:Male/Neutered  Notes:AGE RESTRICTION
History:
- Caesar was surrendered by his owner because they just had a new addition of a baby to the family. Owner stated that Caesar would get excited and want to jump up on the baby. Caesar would growl at other dogs if there was a high value treat in his possession. Previous owner stated that if left alone he would chew things and scratch. - Chases small animals
- Knows sit, lay, paw
- House-trained
Behaviour observed in shelter:
- Social with new people
- Pulls hard on a lead
- Pushy and frustrated when greeting other dogs
- Barrier/leash reactivity
Recommendations:
- Dog walker, extra enrichment, pheramones, and Thundershirts should separation anxiety occur
- Ample exercise as well as mental stimulation such as clicker training and puzzle feeders to provide challenges and help dog cope with boredom, EHS classes "Brain Busters" and/or further training such as dog sports or nose work should dog require more mental exercise - Specialized walking gear such as an Easywalker or front clip harness in tandem with classes such as "Hustle Your Walk" should leash manners not improve
- Interrupt and redirect/counter-condition unwanted behaviours such as prey drive, chasing, and barrier reactivity, reinforce strong recall to avoid potentially frustrating experiences for dog
- Classes "Leash Reactivity 101" should reactivity on leash become a problem in the home; "Feisty Fido" by Karen London and Patricia McConnell may also be beneficial #edmontonhumanesociety #edmontonspca #edmonton #ehs #780 #adopt #yegpets #adoptdontshop

  • Success story: The City of Kelowna was overrun with feral rabbits back in 2008. The City called an exterminator, but protestors caused the City to redirect to a local rescue group @tracskelowna⁣⠀
[📸: @tracskelowna]⁣⠀
-⁣⠀
Roughly 800 rabbits were caught and housed in a number of enclosures hosted throughout the area.⁣⠀
The city passed a bylaw requiring all rabbits for sale or adoption to be sterilized, and after three years Kelowna was virtually rabbit-free and the rabbits remain under control.⁣⠀

  • The little loves are getting on like a dream. So much thought went into adopting another cat. Does Charlotte need a companion? Is she best in a one-cat household? Would she be able to make friends? Would she dislike sharing the attention and space? We kept the introductions gradual, one sense at a time, smell then sight. The first day we put them in the same room together, Charlotte tolerated the new addition as long as she kept her distance. But on the second day, Charlotte marched right up to Scout, sniffed her face and they’ve been bestfriends since. Inseparable, Scout wants to do everything Charlotte does and Charlotte watches over Scout and all the mischief she manages. We could not have hoped for better. ❤️

  • My fur baby has had quite the {ruff} day.  Lucy’s breath has been absolutely atrocious for a couple of weeks, so I took her to the vet today to see if it was a bad tooth. Turns out she had a STICK lodged in the roof of her mouth between her teeth. 😱 My poor girl! 
While she was under, they found out she has an ear infection, and after an X-ray they told me she already has hip dysplasia in one of her legs. 🥺😢Today has not been a day of good news for her. However....her breath is back to normal, and she still has 3 perfectly healthy and strong limbs!

She’ll have to take it easier on the mountains, and she may need a little more help getting in and out of the car, but this girl will be just fine. ❤️❤️ .

Has anyone else’s dog had a stick stuck in their mouth before?!
