ADOPTABLE DOGS

Adoptable Livia

Adoptable Livia

Meet Adoptable Livia! Livia is a 4-5 year old, female, 55lb, black with white trim, Black Labrador, mixed breed. Livia is such a sweet and friendly dog that loves people and dog respectful kids. She has not been socialized much with other dogs as she was just spayed now after her litter has been adopted, so we are working on that. She sometimes get stimulated by seeing other dogs when out on leash, so we are slowly working to socialize her with other dogs to see how she does. We believe she will adjust well. Livia does good in the home, but becomes quite attached so she can get nervous if you leave her by herself, but she’s being worked…

Adoptable Blair

Adoptable Blair

Meet Adoptable Blair! Blair is a female, 1 year old, 10lb, tan and white, Chihuahua. She is located in Vancouver. Blair is one of the sweetest little beans that is such a love, but is quite shy of the outside world and new people, but she’s been doing well at slowly opening up more and more each day while gaining small amounts of confidence with her foster Momma. Blair definitely would do best with someone who works from home or is retired, and another nice dog or not would suit her. She really depends on you to be around a lot and to go slow with her as she opens up more and more, while wanting to be snuggling with…

Adoptable Booger

Adoptable Booger

Meet Adoptable Booger! Everyone, welcome Booger to RainCoast! This handsome fella came to us last week from a loving home on Vancouver Island that needed some urgent support. They did truly love this dog, but something has happened that has forced them to surrender. We are sad for them, but happy they reached out to a rescue to ask for support. Please be kind. Booger is a 10.5 month old, male, 25lbs, tan and white, French Bulldog. Words from his foster family: Booger is a sweet and sassy boy who is full of beans and LOTS of love. He is currently being fostered with school aged kids and 2 larger dogs which he loves once he felt safe with them….

Adoptable Jason

Adoptable Jason

Meet Adoptable Jason! Jason is a 5-6 year old, male, tri-colour, 9lb, Chihuahua, mixed breed. Jason is just such a sweet little guy that is good with humans and dogs, and is good in the home. He does prefer a quiet home with someone who has lots of time for him, wants a really affectionate companion dog that is your little shadow, loves to snuggle, and doesn’t demand much for exercise, but is liking his little walks. Maybe someone who works from home, is home a lot, or retired. Words from his foster Mom: Attention snuggles! Jason is an absolute sweetheart. He is so full of love and tail wags! He has been great with other dogs and is cat…

Adoptable Holly

Adoptable Holly

ADOPTION PENDING.. Meet Adoptable Holly! Holly is a female, 44lb, tan with a silver muzzle (snout), 7-8 year old, mixed breed. This super sweet and loving girl will melt your heart with a single glance. We absolutely adore her. Holly is a dog friendly dog that just prefers to sniff and go, and she is very human friendly. She seems like the type of dog that would prefer a more relaxed household with someone that wants a dog that really likes cuddles, gets very attached to you, follows you around, likes to spend a lot of time together, and enjoys little outdoor adventures, but nothing too intense. Perhaps someone that works from home, is home more often, or retired. Holly…

WORDS FROM OUR NEW OWNERS

Odessa (Odie)

Odessa (Odie)

When they ask us why do you rescue? What do you get out of it? Well, one very clear answer is this right here..Seeing this and then feeling that feeling that you changed two lives, not just one. From a life with no chances, to a life with endless possibilities. Simply Amazing! Adopted! Yaaay Odie! (Odessa) Happy Tail- Only a month ago, a shy but super affectionate young dog entered my world. It has already felt like we have been best friends for a lifetime! Quickly coming out of her shell, Odie, (formerly Jessie) showed her true potential for tireless west coast adventure. Short for “Odessa”, she has earned her namesake of the word odyssey; whether it is by my…

Spruce

Spruce

Adopted! Yaaay Spruce! Happy Tail- It has been almost 2 months since Spruce joined our family. From the moment we saw him we knew he’d be here to stay. He is a bright and spunky little character and a friend to everyone and anything he meets (except the insects he needs to chase). After saying goodbye to our last dog in February we weren’t sure of when we’d be ready for another, but how can you resist that face… and that beard! He’s just the best and collects new admirers everywhere we go. Thank you to Jesse and Raincoast for bringing him into our lives! Our family feels complete again.

Rena

Rena

Adopted! Yaayy Rena! (Formerly Serena) Happy Tail – We all found each other not long after our beloved dog Katie had passed away (also a beautiful girl we found through RainCoast). Our hearts were broken after losing Katie, and we knew that our home was incomplete without a K9 family member. We had already contacted Jesse about adopting another dog, so were actively monitoring the society’s social media channels for any openings in the conversation. It was on one of those mornings that I noticed Jesse’s plea for someone to step in to help him with an 18 month old, female, Weimaraner cross who needed to be urgently moved from her foster home on a Salt Spring Island. It was…

Ebah

opted!! Yaayy Ebah! Happy Tail- Ebah has settled in tremendously considering the circumstances she came from in her previous life. She’s a funny girl with lots of personality, affection and love. She loves her new brother Hunter, he is teaching her to play and do normal dog activities. She is definitely the protector of the family. (She’s in the purple scarf, Hunter in the blue scarf). Her favourite things to do are sit on the couch and watch out the big window. Roll in the grass in the backyard and snuggle with Bill. The pic of the two in the truck looking out the window was in the DQ drivethru, Ebah had her first pup cone. She is living the…

Callie

Callie

Adopted! Yaay Callie! (Formerly Sally) Happy Tail – We didn’t realize our family was incomplete until we saw Callie’s (formally Sally) photo on Raincoasts Facebook page. It was love at first sight and we knew she needed to be a member of our family. Callie is settling in perfectly, as if she’s always been here. Our 2 dogs have accepted her into their pack. We are starting to see more and more of her personality each day and she can be quite the goofy dog. She’s a loving, kind, wonderful dog who we and our 2 boys love so much already. Thank you to the Haltner Family who found Callie and worked with Jesse at RainCoast to help make our…
