Almendra & Mani: abandoned at an enclosed property with their mom and another male dog and had been left to die. They were in terrible conditions - they were starving and covered in ticks and fleas. Silvia, the shelter owner, tried to get the police involved but they did nothing, so matters were taken into our own hands. Notwithstanding this horrible situation, both girls have always been outgoing and friendly, and love people. Phantom, the male who was with them, went to the LCHS in December and was just adopted yesterday 🙂
Almendra has adapted to the coldest Canadian days really well. She is super affectionate and sweet and will show you in her own way by nudging her head up to your arm. In return she loves getting praise and affection back and is a super cuddler. She's not really interested in dog toys but will chase a squirrel in the yard. Almendra is a little finicky with her food, but eats well and doesn't show any aggression while eating. She likes routine and loves to get out in the morning for her pee and walks and has not had any accidents . She loves her walks and does very well on a leash.
She loves having people around her and also would love to have another dog around for a playmate so long as they aren't too rambunctious.
Adoption Fee | $500
Adoption fees help cover the costs associated with rescue, such as vetting, boarding, and transportation.
Prior to adoption, dogs are spayed/neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, and 4Dx tested, and they receive any necessary treatment. After adoption, they are eligible for one month of free pet insurance.
For more information about adoption fees, please review our Adoption FAQs & Fees page.
Why We Love Fostering
From fluffy kitten cuddles, to endless purrs and kisses, fostering allows me to live a true “crazy cat lady’s” dream! Most importantly, it gives me the opportunity to have a positive impact on the lives of kittens/cats - some of which have come from very sad and difficult situations - and provide them with a safe and loving start before they go to their furever homes. While it is always challenging to say goodbye, I find comfort in knowing that there is a thorough application process to ensure the kittens/cats are adopted into the purr-fect home.
*** Please note that we are NOT accepting applications for the dogs listed as Coming Soon. These dogs have either yet to arrive or have only just recently arrived. Once their foster families get to know them a little better, a detailed bio outlining their personality and describing their ideal home will be posted and we will then begin accepting applications for them. ***
