A fun day was had by ALL!
Charlie - is a unique looking dog who simply loves life!!! Charlie is a young bull terrier mix with lots of energy and lots of love to give. Charlie is a very smart fellow who loves his ball, but most of all, Charlie LOVES to be with people.
Charlie is very good with all people he meets, including young children, however, through sheer excitement, he could knock a younger child over. We are looking for a home that can give Charlie the big fenced in yard he yearns for so he can frolic and burn off some of his energy.
Tanner - is 3 1/2 years old and a very good boy. He is housetrained and is good with all people, big and small. His owner had to go away for a few weeks and left him with grandma and grandpa. They were always home and never left me alone. He really got to like having my people with him all day long, so when the owner picked him up he began misbehaving when they had to go to work - he would bark and cry hoping that they will return soon.
Tanner would really love a home where someone could be with him for most of the time. He would love being with people and as long as he has people, he would be the best behaved doggy you could ever meet (-:
Marlene - is in URGENT need of a foster home for this approximately 2 year old female rottweiler. She was found straying and has not been claimed. The shelter is seeking rescue for this girl, they will not adopt out Rottweilers, so time is VERY critical. She does not seem to display any aggression towards other dogs when she sees them, but she has not been put together with other dogs at the shelter.
She is a sweet girl, the staff really love her. She is starting to stress at the shelter and they would like to see her find rescue ASAP. If you know of anyone that could foster this beauty,
Please contact us ASAP if you can help
Charlie, Tanner or Marlene at email@example.com or
fill out the application form on the left.
November 28th at Stacey's Pet Depot in Cornwall, you can bring your pet/human in for pictures with Santa - woohoo!! Please be sure to call ahead for an appointment as spots are being booked quickly.
We would like to thank Stacey's Pet Depot and Fromm Dog Food for making this event possible. Also, HUGE thanks to Allie and Walter for helping with the event. I am sure they will have a BLAST seeing all the cute pets coming in for pictures with Santa.
If you are in the Cornwall area, please drop by and say "Hi" to everyone on Sunday.
Be sure to drive carefully ... looks like winter has arrived!!! Have a great weekend everyone!
- Foster Needed
Sadly, Tanner had the taste of having someone home with him all day for several weeks and when he returned home, he couldn't bear when his owner left for work. He began barking and stressing until his owner returned home. Sadly, because his owner lives in a condominium, he has had a few complaints about Tanner.
We would love to help Tanner find a loving home where his people can be home with him for most of the day. We don't want to see Tanner go to a shelter as that would prove devastating for him.
you think you could foster Tanner or would like to add a new companion
to your family, please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
HUGE thanks to Mondello Ristorante for welcoming ANML-RESQ, providing a beautiful venue for our event. The food was delicious, the ambiance was wonderful.
It was exciting to meet and finally put a face to the people we have talk with, either by phone or email - adoptive families, loyal supporters of ANML-RESQ, our hard-working volunteers and all the friends we made at Mondello Ristorante.
The fundraiser was a HUGE success. ANML-RESQ would like to send special thanks to Carolina and Mike for their tireless work, putting together this fundraiser and others to help ANML-RESQ raise much needed funds to carry us through the winter months.
We would also like to send thanks to the generous people and companies that donated items for our auction and raffle.
Many people drove quite a distance to spend the afternoon with us, and we would like to thank EVERYONE for making this such a special day for us.
Jo Singer revisits the articles that surfaced in 2005 about dogs being used as shark bait. I must point out, that most people do not believe that this is going on and will comfort themselves with this notion to sooth their thoughts. Even snopes.com has a flip flop attitude as to whether this is real or not. [Everyone trusts snopes.com as the authority where questions are concerned!]
Anyone who has ever travelled to a 'third-world' country will attest to the poverty and lost love for poor people as well as the animals. Which leads to a problem of over-population, not only for the people, but for animals. Ergo with too many dogs and cats, who will worry about using them for bait when they are all roaming the streets in such numbers. We are structured here in Canada and the US - but we are also killing dogs and cats in great numbers.
In Reunion Island a French controlled territory off the coast of Southern Africa, located in the Indian Ocean, east of Madagascar. Fishermen were caught using dogs and cats for bait and it has been documented and confirmed. This has been confirmed by Sea Shepherd as well. The Sea Shepherd has offered rewards leading to conviction of the use of dogs and cats as bait...»
Ms. Reha Hutin sent a film crew to Reunion to verify the facts that live animals were being used as bait to hunt sharks and if true to expose the practice on the animal rights' group weekly television show.
As we sit here watching
our dog or cat lay in the sunshine by the door or window, please
remember the lost souls who do not have the pleasure of that love and
are lost. Don't forget to hug your fur-babies today. ~ Elaine Watson
As dogs age, it is harder for them to reach the floor to eat or drink. Jake has found a wonderful water/bowl set that will look great in the kitchen and won't leave your face with eau d'toilet!
and Jack Update
It seems that Jack's ears are starting to stand up. OMG ... how cute will he be when he grows up. It also appears like Roxy has an "ear-do" going on as well (-:
All of the puppies are doing well and adjusting nicely to family life. All are very fortunate to have an older canine sibling to teach them the ropes.
Mama Shiloh is also doing very well. She went to get
micro chipped and another vet check-up. She is in good health and will be ready for her spay next Thursday.
We are sure that mama Shiloh and her adorable puppies will find their forever
Still growing like a weed. At 8 months old, he towers over his big brother Beau and he is still growing. Isn't he the most handsome puppy you have seen? I love his smooshable cheeks (-:
Splash (aka Haille) is the only girl in the pack, but in true female fashion ... she keeps the boys in line.
Thanks for the pictures and updates Carla! You have a beautiful family of four-legged friends (-:
I also wanted to share this well written, thought provoking
article from the
We shared the ruling brought down by the courts last week and Ginger's destruction order was upheld. Once again, she is slated to be put to sleep for defending herself and owner against an attack by an off-leash dog. Ginger was charged while the owner of the loose dog was not. The City of Calgary has offered Ginger safe haven in their Province ... whether the courts will allow this to happen, we do not know.
We can only hope and pray now that there will be a
reprieve for Ginger ... that she will be allowed to leave the Province
of Ontario. We pray she will be granted a "stay of execution" and allowed to relocate to another province.
Please send your thoughts and prayers Gingers' way.
Our Christmas fundraiser has everyone abuzz with excitement. It will probably be the last time ALL of our volunteers will get together this year ... with winter weather setting in soon. I am SO looking forward to seeing everyone again, volunteers, adoptive homes, friends of ANML-RESQ ... when we all get together in one place, we ALWAYS have a fun time. There is nothing better than getting together with a group of animal lovers.
We have a couple of spots open for the luncheon, so if you are free on November 20th, please consider join us to help us celebrate our rescues and their success stories:
There will be door prizes, hourly raffles and some VERY beautiful items on our auction table. Just to list a few of our prizes, raffles, and auction items: Dog table w/bowls, Dog collar holder, 3 wolf pillows, Christmas decoration, chocolate and wine basket, dog gift basket, cat gift basket, gift certificates from Chapters and HBC, 1 year subscription to Modern Dog Magazine, dog bed from Ruffins, $50.00 gift certificate for Sweetcity, and MANY, MANY more items!!!

Needs Our Help
I have taken the liberty of adding some links from our friends at Brindlestick. Lori has done a wonderful job of summing up Ginger's story from the beginning ... The battle to Save Ginger has been on-going since 2006 ... here is the final ruling in last weeks court case.
Lori has written a beautiful Tribute to Ginger, along with the entire story from the beginning in this tribute to a kind, gentle and loving dog named Ginger.
I urge you to make it down
or take your lunch off to attend the rally at Queens Park
this Friday November 12 for 2 PM to show your support for Ginger and her beloved owner. We MUST show the Liberals we will not sit back and allow them to continue the mass slaughter of innocent animals. We WILL fight until this ridiculous law is over-turned. Please come and show your support!!!
Bailey is 6 years old, house-trained, crate-trained. She is great with kids and she gets along well with other dogs.
Bailey has a mild case of hip dysplasia, however, you would never know it. She is quiet in the house, yet definitely has the energy of a Border Collie when outdoors.
If you think that Bailey is the girl for you or if you think you could foster Bailey for us, please contact us at
Your rescue "kit" should include:
And THIS is the reward of rescue ... this picture surely sums it all up in a "kodak" moment.
is our recently rescued girl Shiloh ... Talk about LOVE!!! (-:
Shiloh arrived into her foster home last Saturday and although the first day or two were a bit stressful for her, meeting so many new people, having a sleepover on Friday night and a long journey to her foster home. However, since having a few days to settle in and a little time to get into the rhythm of her new household, she is settling down nicely.
Shiloh was a little unsure at first of the resident dogs (she preferred human attention), but again, with time, she has figured out that Brie and Little Man will do her no harm and is now quite comfortable sharing their home with them and their people.
We have discovered that Shiloh does not like to be confined (crated). Rather than stress her more, foster mom decided to give her a chance at free-roam while they are at work and thankfully Shiloh is VERY good when left with full run of the house. She is not destructive and patiently waits for her people to arrive home. Shiloh is particularly excited when the boyz arrive home from school. She LOVES her foster brothers, Alex and Noah. It seems she has really attached herself to young Alex and he lovingly refers to her as his "shadow".
Shiloh has a wonderful, sweet
temperament. She is a very trusting and loving girl. Shiloh is great with all people and dogs she has met. She is housetrained and good in the house when left alone. She is a very special girl to us and we will be looking for a VERY special forever home for this very deserving girl.
We really look forward to pictures. This young fellow will be growing like a weed and we can't wait to see how he grows and matures. He is such a stunning and unique looking puppy. We can't wait to see what he looks like all grown up (-:
Here is new moms update
--------------------------------------------------------------------| Email us [firstname.lastname@example.org] your comments.
Mama Shiloh met a lot of our volunteers this weekend and did a bit of traveling, but she landed safely in her foster home and is settling in and getting to know her foster family. I heard she has really bonded with her foster brother Alexander. Shiloh is a very good natured girl, very loving and very happy to meet new people. When she has met you, she shows her approval by leaning on your leg ... or into your lap. She is a very affectionate, gentle and trusting girl. She has the most beautiful eyes ... EVERYONE that has met her has fallen in love with her sweet disposition.
Foster family for three of our little girls is abuzz with excitement as well. The puppies arrived home and we quickly scooped up by their foster sister, 13 year old Kaitlyn who took over nurturing and caring for them.
The puppies are absolutely adorable as you can see. They have been sleeping through the night and staying clean in their crates, which has been an unexpected surprise (-:
Thanks to Kaitlyn, Megan and Ethan these puppies are getting a LOT of attention and tons of hugs and kisses.
Even their big brother Buddy is getting in on the action and showing some of his "herding" techniques to his new-found wards.
Thanks again to Carolina, Christine and Allie for opening your hearts and homes to this beautiful mama and her puppies.
