We adopted my precious boy in June 2014. He had to learn how to play and had no idea what to do with a ball. Now he loves taking his toys out in our yard and will bring them back when asked to. He hated water now he is in love. We moved from fort mcmurray in 2015 to the foothills he lives the dream everyday. He was my cuddle bug throughout pregnancy even though he did break into the laundry basket tearing up all of my clothes. Since my son was born he has been amazing he loves him so so much and my son tries to play fetch but he doesn’t quite get the whole throwing thing. I couldn’t imagine life without my furry son he is my best friend.

Thank you for letting us be his pawrents!

I lost my last dog a year ago and wasn’t planning on adopting again for a while….then I saw Regina, now Grace. She was sitting in the kennel with the sweetest brown eyes I ever saw. She was nothing like any type of dog I’ve owned before in my life and it only took me two walks to decide to foster her. After two days of having her living in my home I was sold! I knew she wasn’t going to be leaving my home ever again. It hasn’t always been easy, but I picked the perfect snuggle buddy who makes me laugh every day! I can’t thank you enough for giving me the privilege of sharing my home with Gracey!
Banjo is fitting in just fine at my house and is pretty much everything I could want in a pet. Lots of fun to play with, but also good to sit on the couch and relax with. Everything is going great! Just finished building him a hollowed-out carpet tree and he now spends most of his time climbing around on it, so I think it was worth the effort.
I adopted Ranger after the fire for an adventure partner. Shortly after I adopted him I also adopted Aspen (previously Peppermint Patti). Ranger and Aspen have become inseparable and spend everyday with me always exploring new things. I try to make it habit of letting them roam in the woods with me every single day. There is nothing they love more than being outdoors together. I couldn’t have asked for better adventure partners and I can’t wait to see what adventures life throws at us in the years to come. They are my whole world along with their other brother and sister Chihuahuas at home.
River is doing great in his new home and loves playing with his new sister, Phoebe. He has finally learned how to go up and down stairs and absolutely loves chewing on his water buffalo horn. As you can tell by the photo, River loves to get messy and dig in the backyard. He has been such a great addition to our little family; we can’t imagine our lives without him.
Janie, now Izzybee, is getting lots of love and attention in her new home! She enjoys playing with her favourite jitterbug toy, getting her treats, climbing her cat tree, and most important- enjoying time and plenty of cuddles with mom!
Gina absolutely loves her play time- especially with her toy balls! She is starting to adapt really well into our home- she even sleeps with us most nights!
We absolutely love Yuna, now Padme! She is getting along so well with her puppy brother/BFF! They go to the private dog park where she gets to play with her sister Leia at least once a week! Our lives are truely enriched by bringing these beautiful additions to our family!
Fawn is getting along extremely well with our other dog that we also adopted from the FMSPCA. She absolutely loves to play-especially with her tennis ball. She still needs some training but has already learned to sit and shake a paw!
Sockeye (now Salem) is such a happy kitty. All I have to do is look at him and he purrs! He is adapting very well ..maybe too well considering he has all my pillows taken over!
Rajah, formally Brooks, is adapting very well in his new home! Just look at how happy and cozy he is!
Leia (now Jarrah), has transitioned really well in her now home! She’s learning fast and growing up so quickly already! She has been a great new pal!
From the moment we took Cleocatra home, you could tell she never wanted to leave. She’s the sweetest cat I’ve ever seen, loves to cuddle. Couldn’t have adopted a better companion! She’ll always be our spoiled little princess.
Chris after a long day of meeting one of his doggy friends, getting spoiled at Pet Valu and having a game of fetch! Totally, joyfully tuckered and content!
We adopted Ella (previously Eleanor Rigby) from a litter at the FMSPCA in April 2010. About a year later we adopted her “brother” Marshall (previously Biggie) from someone who traveled too much to keep him. They still play like puppies to this day. Ella is AMAZING with our daughter who came into our lives when Ella was 5. She enjoys laying in front of the fridge and drinking water from the toilet – because sharing a bowl with Marshall is gross.
Chantilly (now calypso) is happy exploring her new home. She met her official owner, Keira, and it’s a perfect match. They’re incredibly happy to have each other! She’s warming up very slowly to our gentle giant of a dog. We’re so happy with our newest addition to the family!
We are all SO in love with Zsa Zsa. She’s super snuggly and affectionate with everyone. Anyone that has come over falls in love with her too. She’s a wonderful addition to our family.
Richie, now Buster, posing with his human all smiles to have been adopted!
Wanted to send some pictures of Chico (Denzel before i adopted him in July 2009)

I will always remember one of your question on the adoption form…what will you do with the animal you adopt if you have to move away…. i then replied: he’s gonna move with me!

Here we are 7 and some years later, back to Montréal. Chico is in great shape, happy and healthy, fed on raw meet for the last 5 years, works awesomely for him!!

Special thanks to Elena that made that great unforgettable connection.

Lottie is doing fantastic! She has more toys than I know what to do with and loves running around with them. She also loves to play fetch which is her new favourite game. She’s a super sweetheart and has decided she likes to sleep with us at night.
Zach is doing so well and I can’t get over how fast he has adjusted to our home. He is so affectionate and I’m so happy we were able to make him part of the family.
Remember our sexy senior Boomer? He’s doing great in his forever home (clearly roughing it lol) and we couldn’t be happier for him!
