Spirit the Husky mix

About Spirit

Spirit of the North has arrived in town!

Spirit's body was broken but his spirit was not. Spirit is happy little 10 week old homeless pup whose leg got caught in a snare. Sadly we could not save the leg as it was just hanging and all the bones were completely broken. His front leg was amputated. There was also quite a bit of infection so he is on heavy duty antibiotics and pain killers. Presently he is resting in the ICU at Pierrefonds Animal Hospital recovering from surgery. This little guy will need some rehabilitation to strengthen him. 3 legged dogs do very well. He will be able to run and walk like all other dogs. This is never our first choice to amputate but when we have no choice - it has to be done. It took a village to save this little one! Thank you to Jolyanne, Sarah and Guylaine! Thank you to the great vets, techs and kennel workers at Pierrefonds Animal Hospital. This little guy was flown down and brought straight to our vet where they were waiting for him.

These surgeries come at big expenses to a small rescue like Rosie Animal Adoption. Spirit is our 2nd dog this year already who has required an amputation. Please consider donating to help with Spirit medical care!

This organization is run entirely by volunteers and we try our best to save as many homeless dogs as possible. Since there are only a few volunteers, please understand that we are unable to answer phone calls about the animals. The first step is to fill out an adoption application which you can find at: www.rosieanimaladoption.org . You will be contacted only if you are a suitable match. Rosie Animal Adoption does not have a shelter where you can come and meet the dogs. All showings are by appointment after your application has been approved, or at adoption clinics. If you have any questions, please .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address). All family members must be present at time of adoption. Please note, we do not adopt strays to families with children under 12.

Adoptions

If you adopt from Rosie, your dog will be vet checked, vaccinated for DHPP and Rabies (if the dog is over 4 months), given a treatment for fleas and parasites as well as spayed or neutered before adoption. Our adoption fee is $400 and $300 for dogs of 8 years old and older.

Surrenders

Here at Rosie Animal Adoption, we understand that the decision to give up a family pet is not always an easy one and that the dog's best interests are always of paramount importance. Whether you have a family pet or a stray to surrender, please be aware that there are many unscrupulous people who are always on the lookout for unaltered dogs to breed strictly for profit. Dogs kept for this purpose, be it by a “backyard breeder” or “puppy miller,” are usually kept in inhumane conditions that are worse than you can imagine. We get many calls from people who are “in a hurry” to re-home their dogs, claiming that they simply cannot wait. With the increasing number of homeless dogs in the province of Quebec , our resources are always stretched to the limit and we do not always have immediate openings. We would ask that you please be patient when contacting our volunteers to surrender a dog.

We will do our best to help you as quickly as we can, and may also be able to refer you to another group that we are affiliated with, but the most important message here is to proceed very cautiously if you are giving away or selling your dog to someone who may be portraying a private individual. The best thing you can do is to be sure to have your pet spayed or neutered and the worse thing you can do is offer an unaltered pet “free to a good home.” We have seen what can happen.

Mabel

Mabel is wonderful Northern dog. Mabel is photographed with Dr Anita Cuisinier after spaying Mabel and sadly amputating her tail. We had been warned that Mabel could have a problem with her tail. There was a trauma to the nerve. Mabel is now recuperating in a foster home! Donations are used every day towards surgeries like the one performed on Mabel!
