This Friday (June 24th) Nicole is going to be (wo)manning a SAINTS table at theProspera Credit Union Mission Branch (101-32423 Lougheed Hwy--beside Cedatr Care Clinc) for their 9thAnnual Member Appreciation BBQ 11am to 3:30pm. They kindly invited us and 3 other charities to attend their event with an info table and benefit the profits from their BBQ sales. Nicole will be working hard to promote the SAINTS Open House so pop by, buy a dog ... ahhum I mean hot dog and day hi... speaking of which ...
Its almost here! The annual SAINTS Open House is the weekend June 25 and 26 11am to 3 there will be public tours of this amazing multi-species animal sanctuary. We will have an info table and some snacks too. Come bring your friends and family. Come meet the saints animals and volunteers. Hope to see you there!
We have had a number of newbies over the last 2 weeks:
Meet Stanley a young 2 year stray that was taken in by a vet clinic. But when he tested positive for FIV it made finding him a home difficult as most people misunderstand FIV. It is NOT like FeLV. FIV cats can live long full lives and if kept inside are at no risk of passing it on to any neighbourhood cats. In fact at saints they are in general population as our cats do not fight and you need a big fight with a deep bite wounds for even the chance of it being contracted by another cat. Stanley is a very friendly, sweet and calm. Not to mention handsome too!
Jedi and Yoda are 2 senior shih tzus who lost their long time when when their dad went into the hospital.
Yoda is 15 years old and as I take this (and this why erin is laughing) I am calling this one "fatty" and "tubby: in a very loving voice so he thinks I am saying nice things to him because I remember his name. And in my head I am thinks, geez SAINTS is like a fat camp what is he gonna look like 3 months from now! haha
Here is Cocoa, a 4 year cat that is incontinent. His medical history and issues are quite complex. Carol wrote about them previously in her Bladder Cat post. Cocao is a very sweet manner cat that loves pets and kisses.
Here is Trevor. He is a former saint and just back for some r&r. He ruptured a disc which really truly sucks for a three-legged dog. He has a great home but its difficult for his mom to get him in and out of her apartment when he can't walk right now. He really, really likes balls.
ok here are my fav pics from the last couple of weeks
these and many more great pictures added too the SAINTS rescue facebook fan page June SAINTS 2011 album.
