Rylee

Come visit me at the WHARF adoption office!

Rylee is an adorable 2 year old female. She was rescued back in the summer from Meadow Lake Saskatchewan and had a litter of kittens with her at the time. She is a very sweet and loving little kitty, she is very affectionate and loves to cuddle. She especially loves having her belly rubbed. She always likes to be part of what ever is going on and will follow you into every room you go into. She is very well adjusted and not nervous or anxious at all. She is VERY playful and just loves to chase a shoelace or feather around and she’ll do it for as long you are willing to play with her. She loves to play so much I think she would be and excellent mouser if she had the chance. She is very clean and always uses her litter box. She also prefers her litter box to be clean. She is good with other cats, but she does not like dogs. She is a small cat and has short little legs. She is just so cute, and would love to find her forever home.

Scorch

January 17th:

It is with great sadness that we announce that Scorch has died. He was not eating, having liver issues and went under anesthetic to try and get a feeding tube put in. He never woke up from the anesthetic.

Everything that was done, was under vet care. The vets at Crestwood made the best choices for Scorch, each step of the way. Thank you for your donations to help Scorch. His bills are expensive and, thanks to you, this will not be a burden on WHARF. We don’t have exact numbers yet but there will not be too much extra over and above his bills. If there is extra it will be applied in memory of Scorch to our other special cases that were treated at Crestwood. Our website talks a lot about their stories and their bills. If you have any question or concerns, please message WHARF.

Rest easy sweet Scorch, may you have no pain on the other side of the rainbow bridge.

January 15: Today a WHARF volunteer was able to check in at Crestwood and take some photos. Scorch is being extremely kind to his care givers despite his level of pain. He is continuing to be stabalized so that he can go under anesthetic. New photos are at the bottom of the post.

January 14th: Scorch is on IV antibiotics and fluids. He is holding on and the team at Crestwood is stabalizing him.

January 13th: Scorch made it through night one. He (hard to say for sure) has been all cleaned up. His paws, one in particular is in very rough shape, it is de-gloved and has very traumatic injury to it. Now that his pain is being managed and he is clean enough to assess what is happening, vets will decide the next steps of treatment.

Tonight we are sharing an upsetting story. A lady contacted WHARF because she had picked up a cat, staggering in the middle of the highway. WHARF has named him Scorch. He appears to have had something poured on him that has caused burns. He has been cleaned up and is receiving care. It is situations like this touch people, because no one can imagine the pain this cat is in, and the fear it must be feeling. If everyone who read this post donated $1 to WHARF then Scorch’s vet bills will be paid. We will update the website’s special cases page with Scorch’s progress.

Taffy

Boy this is a change! I am a very petite girl and I was terribly scared and timid. I came from a hoarding house and was a teenage mom. At WHARF I hid as best I could and preferred to stay in my carrier the first two days at my foster home. Eventually I learned this place was very different and there was nothing to harm me here. I was fidgety with the grooming at first but I am getting used to it. Ritter, my roommate is a big guy and he intimidated me at first, but I have come out of my shell and have him wrapped around my little paw – as long as I don’t pester him too much. I am catching up on play, big time, and loving chasing balls around and skidding around on the tile floor. I love the toys I have to play with. I can’t believe life can be like this – it’s a second kittenhood. Initially I refused to be picked up, and I am still often fidgety but I’m getting used to it and even like to crawl on mom’s lap in the evenings. Mom gave me time to get used to these new digs and mostly let me choose when I wished to be near her. I’m learning how pleasurable it is to be held and cuddled but I’m still a bit nervous at times. I was spayed after being moved to foster care and I am so glad to finally have that awful cone off! I would love to find a forever home where I can feel safe and secure and continue to adjust to the good life. I’m still very nervous around strange people so a quiet home with no children would be my first choice. I’m used to other cats and would make a good friend for your feline companion. My foster mom has nick named me Missy ‘cuz I’m a fiesty, curious little girl with lots of spunk and very good toilet manners. I’m ready for adoption, spayed, vaccinated and de-wormed.

Kipper

I am a super nice dog. I am great with kids, cats and other dogs. I love to play! I would fit in to most households without too much fuss. I am good off leash because I like to stick with my humans. Humans are so nice!! I am kennel trained but need work on my leash manners. We can do that together. I promise I will work hard to be a good girl for you! I know to do my business outside, I’m a civilized lady. If you would like to see a few more pictures and videos of me please see Jenna’s Foster Dogs on Facebook. I am spayed, vaccinated and de-wormed. I am ready for you to take me home!!!

Murphy

I did not chew this bed. For real, someone else did!

I am pending adoption! Check out Cooper who is an older guy like me!

I am great with kids and dogs but foster mom said I am not good with cats. I love car rides and lazy evenings. I am house trained (of course, I’m 8!). I was a farm dog for all my life. My humans were very nice and loved me so much. They had to move to the city because they were getting older and they said I could find my retirement home too. I am very kind, smart and well behaved. I would be great for someone who is thinking of their first dog, I am ready to go and wouldn’t be too much work. I am 73lbs. Please ask to meet me today, how can you resist this cute face??

Kita

Kita is a lovely girl, always looking for love, even if she doesn’t know how, without being pushy. She always wants to be with a human. Her manners are coming slowly, she is working on sit and not jumping up. She is very good at the off leash park, today was the first time, she loved the people and playing with dogs. She is very good with cats and dogs. She hasn’t been around kids, but she doesn’t seem like she would be the type of dog to dislike kids. If you would like to adopt Kita please inquire below!

Kirk

I am a timid and meek guy but I am slowly coming out of my shell. It is taking me a bit of time to gain my confidence but Foster Mom says every day I get more brave. I came from the pound in Lac St Anne. I love other dogs and I am very playful, but not too hyper. I would make a great second dog for a family. I am young and trainable, I have a sweet temperament. I am neutered, vaccinated and de-wormed. I am ready for you to choose me.

What happens to Lame and Tame animals?

Lame and Tame animals are allowed to live out their natural life at the sanctuary. Not only do farm animals come in, some dogs and cats come into care that are not adoptable. They may be too old, too sick or have too many behavior issues. They can remain safely at the sanctuary. There are many feral cats who live on the farm. Read through the posts to see who lives on the farm!

What is Lame and Tame?

Lame and Tame is a new name for something that has been happening for a long time. WHARF just can’t say no to animals in need. They primarily work with dogs, cats and small animals but other animals in need just keep popping up! WHARF has supported chickens, goats, sheep, turkeys, horses, donkeys and a mule, just to name a few! Animals are surrendered or brought in by animal control. Many animals are on their way to slaughter (for food) and some are simply not being cared for. WHARF is always happy to step up and give the animals the love and care they need. When you donate to WHARF you are supporting all animals in need, not just our furry house pets.

Rocket

Before WHARF Rocket was left alone in a pasture to fend for himself. He was no longer wanted and that meant, no longer cared for. When WHARF came to rescue him he was skinny, wormy and his feet were long. He was scared and alone. When he was rescued 23 dogs were surrendered, WHARF kept eight and the others went to AARCS. Rocket was transported back to the WHARF farm. The Lame and Tame Ranch is a place where all animals can live out their life without fear, without neglect and with plenty of love. 

Rocket shown in August when he was first rescued.

Rocket was treated for worms, groomed, had his hooves trimmed. After that he was put in a pasture with other animals. He is receiving on-going farrier work to get his hooves healthy. He has someone working with him on a regular basis, handling and grooming. Once he is gelded he will be saddle trained.

WHARF has spent hours of time and expensive resources to give Rocket a second chance at a good life.  When you donate to WHARF you help give animals like Rocket a second chance. 

Rocket after WHARF love and support!

Ava

Ayla and Ava are purebred Shepherds They are siblings and until coming to WHARF were living together as a bonded pair. As that might sound magical and lovely it is actually the worst thing you can do to a puppy. Puppies need to socialize with people and learn from well rounded adult dogs. When puppies are kept together they bond first with each other. This makes it harder for them to form bonds with other people and dogs. This is why we separated them immediately and they are not available adoption together. Ava has the same level of training, house training and kenneling as Ayla but is completely different. She is outgoing but more of a thinker. She was a lot more cautious when she first arrived than the sister but fit in easily and gets along with everyone. She has better ground manners and is in general calmer than Ava. She too, I think should go to an experienced home that has some time to put into making her the dog she should be. She is spayed, vaccinated and de-wormed.

When puppies are kept together they bond first with each other. This makes it harder for them to form bonds with other people and dogs. This is why we separated them immediately and they are not available for adoption together. Ayla is so friendly, almost too friendly. If she could sit on your shoulder all day I’m sure she would. She jumps up a lot and is high energy compared to her sister. She is great with other dogs and has been around cats with no issues. She is eager and willing to please but needs lots of positive support and training to excel and I’m sure she will as she is constantly looking for approval. She is kennel trained almost too well, I think she was kenneled a lot. House trained but no basics and no leash training. WHARF would like both dogs to go to a home with Shepherd experience or another Shepherd. They are good around the kids but I think since they both need work in different area, a home without kids that can focus a bit more on getting them training wise where they need to be would be better. Please call WHARF if you have questions about Ayla! She is spayed, vaccinated and de-wormed.

Skittles

I’ve been in care for a whole year! I am patiently waiting for my forever home! I have a reduced adoption fee of $170.

MEOW – Look at Me – I am Skittles and I am a very bold, energetic, beautiful, slightly (emphasize the slightly!) overweight young lady. I love to play with anything and everything that moves (including my foster mom) and climb on shelves, cat posts and anything else that may be available. I love to be held and carried around – you could never give me too much attention and I will play with you until you tire out, my energy is endless. I can be aggressive with other cats but I don’t hurt them I just want them to know I am the queen. I live with four other foster cats and we all get along, but at times, I do chase and play fight with them. I am spayed, tattooed and dewormed.

Jamie – ADOPTED!

Jamie came into WHARF’s care with an old injury, a shattered pelvis and broken leg. The vet decided the best thing to do was to amputate his leg. He is doing well, he is adjusting to life as a tri-pod doggie. He is a sweet, small (40lb) dog. Right now he is a bit overwhelmed by all of the changes in his life but he will likely settle into a home in no time.

Beany

Hi my name is Beany, I was with my foster mom for 71 days since I was 3 days old. I was the little one of the bunch and looked like a little black lima bean…that’s how I got my name. My momma Taffy and sisters Mimi-Me and Sweetie all had fun together. As I got older I didn’t need momma anymore and got two more friends to play with Grizzle and Tizzy. I like playing with all sorts of toys. I am just starting to snuggle with my foster mom and I think I like it. I eat wet and dry kitten food.

Trip

I came to WHARF as a stray cat. My leg was already missing and I had no traceable identification. I come off as the grumpiest 3 legged cat ever but believe my foster mom when she tells you that I am all talk. I am very agile with 3 legs and have no problem with stairs or jumping on the bed. I love to snuggle and am in a foster home with kids cats and dogs whom I tolerate but am very vocal about the fact that I really think I should be living alone. I can live with other animals and little people but I’m definitely not shy about voicing my opinions. I am a prince, I’m sure my great, great grand cat came from Egypt. So remember that when you bring me home…once a prince always a prince.

Come visit me at the WHARF adoption office!

Hi I was rescued by the ASPCA with a lot of other orange cats! We were pretty shy when we came in but with time WHARF showed us how to be ourselves around people. I like to play with other cats and hangout on people’s laps. I’m really nice and snuggly! I’m patient and would be good with all kids and I wouldn’t mind dogs too. I’m neutered, vaccinated, dewormed, and tattooed.

I like to play hide and seek. Mostly I’m the best at hiding! If you come into the WHARF office you will have to look very hard to find me, I am always under a blanket!

I’m a very nice, shy cat. I’m sure I’d be more outgoing if a was in a home, more myself, and happier. Please come see me at the WHARF adoption office so that we can get to know each other and you can see my personality!  I’m neutered vaccinated, dewormed and microchipped.

Kiko

 

My name is Kiko, and I’m a 3yr old orange-and-cream tabby cat with beautiful, big, golden eyes and a nice, long, lush coat. I’m a quiet, gentle, sweet, lovely gal, and can be a bit shy at times. I do like to watch and observe what everyone is up to, though, and be in the same room as you, lounging on a blanket, couch, chair, or warm surface. If a bed is left unmade, I like to sneak into or onto the blankets and just poke my head out. I love playing with my toys, and will run, or roll around, playing with them for quite a while independently. Although I have many toys, sometimes my favourite one is the large, brown paper bag my foster mom leaves out for me to play in, hide in, and chew for fun, or something hanging for me to bat and chew.


I’m still getting used to being outside the shelter, and sometimes sneak away at loud noises or people approaching me, but everyday I adapt a tiny bit more. While I currently don’t like being held too much, and won’t sit directly on your lap all the time, I’ll let you pet me (if you don’t startle me), I like positive attention, often like being in the same room with you, and will meow back and respond to you if you talk to me. I would do really well with an owner who understands all of these things, gives me time to gradually adapt and become less timid, does not have an overly-chaotic household, and who is patient, kind, understanding, and gentle with me. If you think you’d like the company of a quiet, sweet, mild-mannered cat, come and meet me at my foster home downtown today!
