About Lois

Lois was brought to the Mexican shelter in extremely bad condition with 2 other dogs. All 3 were starving. 1 of the 3 was so bad that she had to be put down right away. The other one (male) was adopted earlier this year. They rehabilitated Lois  as well and she was at the shelter for about 1 year.

Landing in the middle of winter in Canada was both exciting and too darn cold! A little shy of the cold, but will still do her business outside! After approximately a week, she’s outside joining the others in a good jump in the snow. 

Very smart and caught on to climbing the stairs quickly. Watching the other dogs in the pack of the foster home, she’s learning so much! She does very well with the other dogs and ends up cuddling up to one of them at nap time. 

Per Lois' foster home…

A home where her love will be a mutual exchange and someone is there most of the time, although she would likely curl up and sleep if her human(s) are away.
Ideally I think she is well suited to a senior wanting a cuddle buddy or perhaps a family who wants to include her in their activities. It would be super if she had another pet in the home but she would likely be fine if there was a human home to love her most of the time.

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

  • There is a special joy in seeing the transformation from fear to trust in a foster cat’s face and posture, the first time they relax and warm up to me. There is so much comedy in a litter of crazy kittens, rollicking and tumbling, learning how to be big cats. Each foster kitty has been cared for as if they were my own, and I enjoy the confidence in the feeling that they are ready for their forever home. That is the biggest difference between choosing to adopt from a small rescue rather than a shelter, and why I love volunteering. People often ask me how I can be so strong to let such sweet kitties go to adoption, but the feeling that I have space to help another is worth the emotional goodbye. Penny is the twenty-first cat I have helped, and I am not going to stop anytime soon! Fostering for Pets Alive is by far the most rewarding volunteering I have ever done.
