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…

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…
