This sweet little lady is our newest addition and she needs some help. She was abandoned by her owner so we know nothing of her history, but she has severe dental problems that are causing significant pain and will require urgent surgery. One of her canine teeth is broken off near the gum line leaving the pulp painfully exposed, and a second canine tooth has a loose root and is horribly infected. Both of these teeth will need to be surgically removed to relieve her pain. She seems to be a sweet cat but it is obvious that touching her head causes her discomfort.
PetSmart Charities® is presenting another National Adoption Weekend at PetSmart in Langford, and VPAS will be there. The adoption event takes place Saturday & Sunday, February 13 & 14 from 11am-4pm each day. Please join VPAS & several other local rescue organizations and help some of our deserving pets get a second chance at love. Keep an eye on our website/Facebook page to find out which adoptable pets will be putting their best paw forward at the adoption fair to win your heart.
Did you know that we have a Wish List? Caring for all kinds of animals takes a lot of work and we are always fundraising so that we can provide our pets with the things that they need. Help us reduce our costs by donating something from our wish list.
Items that we are currently in need of are:
-Pill Pockets (chicken flavour)
-Cat Dancer cat toys
-Canned Kitten Food (all types)
-Collapsing Dog Crates
-Folding Fences (Exercise Pens)
-Pop-up Cat Tents (available at some dollar stores)
-Cat Litter (World's Best is our favourite)
UPDATE: Our appointments to see Santa on Dec 4th & 5th are now fully booked! Thank you to everyone who has scheduled an appointment. Your support has been amazing!. We can't wait to meet you & your wonderful pets :)
December 4th & 5th, VPAS is teaming up with Larawan Photography to offer holiday pet photos with Santa with proceeds going to VPAS. This event is lots of fun & a great way to get professional, studio-style portraits of your pets; perfect to adorn your mantle, to insert into Christmas cards, or to decorate your fridge.
