mo and i picked up shyla from the airport. while she is incredibly sweet, she is also highly anxious and is a huge flight risk. therefore she is on complete and total lock down. no one is to enter or exit outside thru the computer room is locked and is to stay locked. the staff will move the other dogs in the computer room in and out as needed and deal with keeping shy safe.
tours this weekend will need to enter the house by the front door into the entrance area with stella.
looks like i will be sleeping on the couch for the next few days.

also in is zoe..the kind of bitchy diabetic cat...since she hates everyone, we have given her the hide away suite..the staff will deal with her care too.

we had some really kind folks thru today who left us with a very generous donation...yay..more vet bills can get paid!!

someone stopped in and told the staff of a mama cat killed on the side of the road with a bunch of kittens running around. the staff went to investigate. what we think they found was a dead raccoon with half grown feral kittens feeding on the dead and bloated body. oh yay. erin is continuing to investigate to make sure they aren't owned barn cats and if not, i guess we will be setting traps.

i am back to work tomorrow...everyone use extreme caution to keep our new shyla safe!



Mo that's exactly what I thought when I saw her! An Aussie with a hair cut.


hi allen, you can call me at 604-339-5144, if i don't answer, leave a message with your phone number, thx.


Yikes..poor kittens..they must be starving. I think Shyla is ADORABLE she has sorta a Roxie face..wonder if there is some Aussie in her.

I have an older small dog with health issues (diabetes and loss of vision). She is a 12 year old poodle, chihuahua, Havanese mix about 10 pounds in weight.

I am unable to care for her (I am a low income senior - age 71). I have moved my residence 3 times in the last 6 months mainly due to my wife's health issues (she was an in-patient in hospital for most of the last 8 months - but was recently discharged one week ago to come home permanently).

I have contacted the SPCA and Langley Animal Protection Society with no avail. LAPS and the Brookswood, Langley Vet suggested that I contact your organization. I would like some advice from you, if no other options, on putting our dog down. I have been quite averse on this choice which was suggested even a few months ago instead of treatment for her diabetes. At this point, I must proceed without further delay, removing our dog from the current situation at our temporary housing accommodations. My wife and I have been seeking an assisted care senior living facility in the last couple months, and will be moving in short order, to a more suitable accommodations for my wife who is wheelchair dependent as the current residence has a flight of stairs to be negotiated which is proving to be very difficult.

I thank you for your assistance in this matter.

Yours truly,
Allen Mah and Ling Fang


yes for now. no time to train each person who has access to that door on the new way to do in/outs right now but i have told the staff how.

Just to be clear Carol...... only staff will let the computer dogs in and out thru the outside door on the weekend....not volunteers, right? So glad Shyla is at Saints.
Oh, I really hope you can trap those kittens.....poor little things.
