SPARROW – SPCA Animal of the week – by Kristina

img_4875 img_4874 img_4873 img_4872They call me Sparrow (hold the Captain Jack), and I’m a Lovebird!  I’m about 1 year and 2 months old and I’m super cute, don’t you think?   I flew into someone’s yard and simply never left. I think I knew that the nice people there would take me to the shelter, where I’m now, awaiting my forever home.

I was a little skittish at first but I’m learning to trust people more and more. I’d love to snuggle up with someone who has a little bit of patience.  I just know I could become hand-tamed and a lot more social.

In case you don’t know much about my kind, lovebirds are small parrots so we can be a bit noisy.  (Well, you call it noisy, I call it communicating.)   I need lots of stimulation and play/interaction time because I’m really smart!  And because I’m single, I’d like to spend a bit more time with my humans than if I was paired up with another Lovebird like me.

There’s also a pair of bonded Lovebirds at the West Van shelter, Peach and Blueberry.  But I’d like to move out of here first, I’ve been here the longest!

Gypsy – Pet of the Week

thumb_screen-shot-2016-10-28-at-7-55-20-am_1024Hello everyone! My name is Gypsy and I’m a seven years young, Border Collie/Akita Inu. How’s that for a cool cross? I’m looking for a fun retirement villa with a soft dog bed to call my own. I used to live in the backyard, which sucked, frankly.

And while I may be seven, I’m still quite playful and I can get a bit silly when I get excited. I do like other pups but I want to see out my days in a single pet home. It’s me time! I do know my basic commands (I am seven after all) and I really like some praise. Who doesn’t need some positive reinforcement now and again? I love to go for walks (just keep an eye on me) and I do get a bit anxious when I’m left alone, but let’s work on that together. I can be a bit shy with new people, but once we have a few pets, I warm up pretty quickly. What I really want though, is lots of love.

For more information about me please contact vancouver@spca.bc.ca and note that you’re trying to reach Gypsy. For more visit Vancouver SPCA.

Sawyer

Sawyer

Hi! I’m smiling Sawyer and I’m a six year old pit bull terrier. I’ve been in foster care with a family with three dogs since January. I love those guys but I’d really like to find a place of my own.

I can be exuberant and playful, but I’m mellowing out every day. I love my humans, but I also love my canine brethren. Like a LOT. Getting my exercise is the best, so what I really enjoy is going on sniffy walks, following my nose and just trotting aside my humans, soft-leashed.

They say I’m pretty smart, and who am I to disagree? That means I need to keep my brain sharp. I’ve learned to swim, fetch in water, run calmly alongside a bike, and I can do a whole bunch of tricks, provided there’s a treat at the end, of course.

Because I’m a bit excitable, I do best with humans who get me and have experience with pups. While I love my doggie pals, I don’t think I’d like to live with cats or young kids.

For more information about me please contact vancouver@spca.bc.ca and note that you’re trying to reach Sawyer!

Hi, my name is Rafiki and I’m a handsome fellow, if I do say so myself.  I’m currently at the West Vancouver branch of the BCSPCA but I’m looking to find my forever home.  I also like to hang out at the the Catfe in the International Village Mall because it’s always good to get out and meet new people, right?! 
 
I’m only about a year and five months old, and I’m looking for a fun place where I can play!  I’m super sweet, social and I love to cuddle.  Bring string toys if you want to get in my good books.  I also enjoy getting my food in puzzles and toys. Sounds weird, but trust me, it’s a cat thing. 
 
One thing I don’t like so much is when I’m confined. I like to get out and explore my surroundings, so a home with outdoor access is pretty important to me.  Have other cats at home? No probs. I’m down with that.
