Queenie is the perfect companion animal. A gorgeous Pointer mix she is just two years old and weighs 44 pounds. Queenie has a medium energy level and gets along great with other dogs she meets, and she is even okay with felines. We think Queenie would be a good family dog as she loves her people more than anything, especially when she is getting lots of cuddles. Queenie has been spayed, dewormed and vaccinated. Now she is ready for that perfect forever home. If Queenie sounds like the perfect dog for your family, contact us at for an application to adopt.

Hero was rescued by our sister organization in Mexico where he was neutered, dewormed and vaccinated. He is now ready for his forever home in the Vancouver/Vancouver Island, BC area. If you are looking for a very special boy look no further! Contact us at for an application to adopt Hero.

We appreciate any donations you can bring for our rescues and if going to the sanctuary, please feel free to bring treats for the staff as they truly appreciate it. Those items we ALWAYS need include: collars and leashes; toys and more toys! both stuffed and hard plastic (no soft plastic as they can chew off pieces and swallow); large towels; blankets; sweaters and coats; post-surgical cones (both the cone shaped and donut inflatable ones). Our rescues are now fed a total raw diet so please refrain from bringing any dog food or treats, but we do have healthy homemade treats available (at cost) for the dogs when you visit the sanctuary.
