Barry Needs A Home

Barry came to Winnipeg Animal Services as a scared and sad little fellow. At that time he was about 4 months old.

Almost 3 months later Barry is still waiting and hoping to find his forever family. This little pup is growing up in a shelter.

He needs out.

He needs to play.

He needs a family.

Barry is a young lab mix. Because of his pent up energy he overreacts in his kennel and does not present well. He barks, he jumps, he acts silly.

Please ignore!

Instead, take this boy outside to one of the outdoor enclosures and meet the real pup… the one who loves to play ball, the one who would love to show you the tricks he has learned. The one who LOVES to run but does settle after he is able to release some energy.

Barry is young, approximately 6 months old… and he is smart. He will need an experienced owner, one who can help him with his manners and one who is willing to spend time with him. He loves learning new tricks and loves attention.

Barry is a great dog… he just needs a family to call his own. He needs someone to throw his ball!

If you would like to meet Barry, please come down to Animal Services at 1057 Logan Ave. The staff will be happy to help you and answer any questions you may have.

Just One Wish… a Home

The time of year doesn’t really matter at the shelter… it is almost always busy and noisy.

Happily, this holiday season, the numbers are low but, sadly, many of the dogs that are still waiting and hoping are “long-timers”… many here since the summer, some since the spring.

It’s these dogs that are featured here today… all decked out in front of the Christmas tree, hoping that they too will get their Christmas wish.

“Hi,” I said. She came over, licked my hand discreetly, allowed herself to be scratched for a time, chased her tail in a dignified circle, lay down again. I remember thinking: “There are times God puts a choice in front of you.” I often had such thoughts back then. We took the dog. ~ Stanley Bing

Emmett – Home At Last

It gives me great pleasure to announce that Emmett, after waiting three long months at Animal Services, has found his forever home.

Wishing you all the best buddy!

Miss Daisy Needs A Home

Miss Daisy is a most beautiful girl… a Shar Pei / Shepherd mix.

Found alone and homeless on the streets of Winnipeg she is now safe and waits for a new family at Winnipeg Animal Services.

But, the wait has been long.

Daisy first came into the shelter way back in April, almost three months ago. That is a long time for an active girl to have to wait and be patient. Daisy does have Entropion in both eyes which needs to be addressed but otherwise she is a healthy, sweet, friendly gal, who loves to play and loves being with people.

It is difficult to understand sometimes why certain dogs are passed on by. It certainly baffles us at the shelter in Daisy’s case. She is a most awesome dog who simply needs a home.

“All great friendships start with a paw-shake. Reach out.”
