ADOPTABLE DOGS

Adoptable Polo

Adoptable Polo

Meet Adoptable Polo! Polo is a 3-4 year old, male, 55-60lbs, Golden Retriever. Polo came from the same horrible breeding operation as Bella that we posted about this morning as well. All three Goldens that were being used to breed have been rescued, but only two are being posted for now. Lola is the other female Golden we are waiting on. Polo is a high energy boy that can be quite excited and likes to jump up to say “hello” when meeting somebody new. It’s all with love and affection. He may be best in a home with no small kids to start because of this, but he will settle and get better with time and training. Polo is fine…

Adoptable Bella

Adoptable Bella

Meet Adoptable Bella! Bella is a 3-4 year old, female, 54-60lb, Golden Retriever. This girl was rescued after she was found chained up outside with no shelter and directly exposed to the harsh elements, while being forced to breed. Bella is a very kind soul that has somehow after all she has been through, still managed to keep a very sweet and gentle temperament towards humans and other dogs. She has medium to high energy, walks fairly well on leash, and sits patiently while her collar/harness is being put on her. Bella aims to please as she starts her new life out in the big world, and would benefit from a home that can be patient with her as they…

Adoptable Charlie

Adoptable Charlie

Meet Adoptable Charlie! Charlie is a 75-80lb, male, tan with black trim, 9-10 month old, large breed, Northern Canada mix. Here are some words from his previous owner. Charlie loves getting outside and doing all sorts of adventures, exploring and hiking, and he can easily do 5-7km on scrabbly trails. When he meets other people he wants everyone to pet him and say “hello”. He is friendly with other dogs and quite submissive and  curious. He is medium to high energy and needs quite a bit of exercise each day, and seems happiest outdoors and loves being on trails and in fields. Charlie is a big goofball with a huge heart, and is very loyal. He has been with our…

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

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…
