This is why we need your help. We are responsible for these dogs for their lifetime.
UPDATE: we recently diagnosed Lily with seizures. We are monitering her closely.
Lily was welcomed as a young puppy. She is completely blind. After 2 months, one of her eyes became severly infected. The eye was removed and she was back to her old self. For months, with Mama France, Lily learned to be confident and brave, using voice commands only. She loves to play in water, as one of her favorite outings was going to swim in the river in Wakefield. She loves the car rides too. She is now living in a foster home with a retired couple where she gets all the attention. She is spoiled as her foster mama makes her roast beef and gravy.
DOGS CURRENTLY UNDER OUR CARE
Sydney was rescued July 25th 2013. her story is touching as this little girl was neglected beyond what any dog should have to endure. She could barely stand when she arrived , at 91 pounds. Sydney's front paw had been broken and left to heal without medical attention, her paw was angled at 90 degrees. Sydney suffered from hip dysplasia, she was treated at the Montreal DMV hospital. Syd was in excruciating pain as every step caused her femur bone to rub on her hip and most of the bone was shattered. Two major surgeries later, she is running and going up stairs. Sydney will remain under our care for her lifetime. We need to monitor her orthopedic status as she grows older.

Gordon arrived in May 2014. He was slowly dying from demodex mange, his organs were slowly shutting down from the parasite. It seemed as if Gordon had given up. We made him a special diet, bathing him with antiseptic shampoos and love every day, and with the constant supervision of vets, we slowly saw him get better. In less than 28 days, he made a dramatic improvement. A few months later, Gordon was placed in Blue's foster home. Gordon also needs constant medical supervision as his mange is a condition that he will never fully heal from.
Rufus is our most recent dog admitted into our medical program. Rufus suffered a bad break in his front leg that required surgery before he came to us. That injury is causing him some pain and requires constant medical supervision. He is in a wonderful foster home and his mama loves to dress him up, he even has an Instagram page! Rufus is on pain medication and is closely supervised by Dr. Sparling.
These animals are under long term medical care. They are not for adoption
Rabbits you say ?
COVID 19 came along and we decided to turn bad into good. This was an opportunity to help the Ottawa Humane Society in this urgent situation. We rescued 4 Giant Flemish Rabbits !! Dale, Cecil, Benny and Riley are all doing fine and making so much progress in their new adoptive homes
