Sarah and Sophie came over and we prepared gift baskets for our on-line auction which is starting this week. Our wonderful volunteers should be uploading pictures of the items on facebook any time now so you will be able to have a look and start bidding early next week. I will post pictures here on our website for people to see but the auction will be held on facebook as we have many followers whom we are sure will share the auction page to raise funds for NARC this winter. Thank you all who donated items for us to put this together, it is not too late too add to it and we may also add a few items during the auction so keep a look out, may have a few surprises along the way!!
Seems like the Yeti, or Abominable Snowman as kids are describing him has just arrived at NARC in time for Christmas! Yep, we received a gorgeous male Irish Wolfhound and all the volunteers that have seen him so far, say he looks like Bumble, the abominable snowman from the Rudolf movie!
Aphodite is doing very well, her puppies are getting very large and healthy looking, will have to post a new photo on facebook to show you how big they are getting. Their eyes are now opened, although they still don’t see anything but will in a few days! They are adorable, mom is doing well, getting up now when we enter the room with her food or water and comes forward to those she knows. She still growls at strangers or new volunteers but the moment I say “non”, she stops so being a good girl - just trying to protect her puppies! She is now coming out with me when all the dogs are in and no one else is at the rescue, baby steps for this “wild” dog!
There are always needs at our rescue and this time we are out of Javex and new mops would be wonderful! We could also use leashes, poop bags and large garbage bags. We also always need Pedigree Vitality + or Beneful Dog Food for our babies! We are opened every weekend, saturday and sunday from 1pm to 3pm if you wish to drop off your items. We also have a donations drop box at the front of the property for those who want to come during the week if we aren’t there! Or, we have wonderful volunteers who are able to come and pick up your items. E-mail us if you wish for us to send someone to pick up donations!
I brought Malini’s 5 puppies for their first DA2PP and vet check, of course they pooped in the car on the way there so were quite stinky for our vet visit – jeez, can’t keep them clean for 1 hour Ha! Ha! Ha! Vet said they are all healthy and strong, ready for their loving homes now! They are eating and drinking very well, we’ve had them since October 21st – so 5 weeks at NARC and they were approximately 2 weeks when we got them so ready for adoption – YIPEE for the puppies!!!
Lucifer also came for his 3rd DA2PP and Rabies, he remains at the vet’s for his neuter today, will pick him up tonight after his surgery poor baby!
Aphrodite, yep this is our new mom of 5 new born’s name. She is doing quite well, she is now looking at everyone that comes to say hello compared to trying to squeeze under something or hide her head in the corner. She now also comes for her food when we put it down, will stand while we are in the room and walk towards us to come and eat. Baby steps but she is now trusting me and our morning employee which is great – soon she will trust other people and be a normal doggy! She does have over a month with us, her puppies are only a week or so old so she has plenty of time to come out of her shell! Such a sweet girl and you can see from her body language that she is quite happy – even though she hasn’t wagged her tail yet – she has lots of room to walk around, take time off from her puppies if wanted, great spot for our new girl – Aprodite!
Yoogi and Sita did very well at the vet’s, surgeries went well although Yoogi also had a lump to remove – on top of his neuter! Yoogi also had fleas when he arrived, gave him a multi-advantage but they saw a flea at the vet’s so they gave him capstar. Sometimes happens, multi-advantage will kill all fleas but may take up to 4 days so we had to de-flea the whole house again! If anyone has spare (advantage, multi-advantage or revolution), we always need it all year round so please donate any if you can!
I picked up a mother and new born puppies, 5 little cows or so that is what they look like, all while with black spots, they are tiny but we’ve given them a room where mom can care for them safely and she can also start trusting humans. She was growly with a few of our volunteers this saturday so I have asked everyone not to go into the nursery and leave her be. She is slowly coming around with me, although still not coming to me, she doesn’t coward when I go pet her – it’s a start! She is skinny but eating and drinking plenty so will gain slowly! Would love to give her a bath but she settled with a hand toweled bath this weekend, it’s a good start!
We have Sita and Yoogi at the vet’s tonight, dropped them off for their spay/neuter tomorrow and shots. Will update you on how they do! Sita was very nervous and so not herself – very quiet in a different environment then at home lol.
We were invited at the Pet Expo to show off a few of our “groomed” rescues, we went today with Karly and Sophie, all dressed up for their “show and tell”. They were amazing, saw a pig and other animals, said hello to everyone they met, walked nicely on the leash through all the people and doggies around. They were just so well behaved! We had fun, walked and talked about NARC to the visitors around the gaming area. Going back tomorrow with Tammy, she is at TLC Grooming now for a nice groom, will also probably bring Ezmira, need to give her a nice bath tonight and off we go tomorrow for 10:30 am for our next show at the Pet Expo. It was fun and I am sure Sophie and Karly think the same! If you are at the Pet Expo tomorrow morning, come say Hi, we will be there for 10:15am till approximately noon!
We brought Coco and Elcino at the vet’s for their spay & neuter, all went well although we know Elcino needs to gain quite a few pounds… We did a poop sample just to see if it was anything to do with parasites although we had given him his multi-advantage on November 2nd and dewormer. Test came back negative so it was definitely the lack of food in his previous home. He is gaining daily and soon will be nice and chunky!
Brought Pinnochio at the vet’s for his neuter, he was cryptorchid (meaning one of his balls was in his groin area) so basically two surgeries, poor boy. Otherwise, he had his Rabies, DA2PP and as per his new mommy’s request Bordetella and Microchipped. Yes, he is already gone to his new home, a foster fell in love and is now called foster failure as we always say lol Not really as she gave Pinnochio a very good home so we are all happy about that!
Malini arrived this week, she is an Australian Shepherd with 5 puppies, barely 2 weeks old and eyes still closed but she is an amazing mom and great dog. We gave her a room to herself so that she is not disturbed while nursing and she is doing very well. Her puppies will go fast in 6 weeks time once they are ready, I can tell right away, they are so cute and if they have half of mom’s personality – they won’t stay long!
