MATCH­ING PETS WITH PEOPLE

Dom is a hand­some lad and other than the fact that he is an FIV+ boy, he is in ex­cel­lent health. FIV is an au­toim­mune dis­or­der and cats with this can live long and happy lives. Dom would be best in a home of his own with per­haps a dog or an­other FIV cat as he has a ten­dency to want­ing to be the boss per se. Dom was found aban­doned in Pa­van Park a while back with his friend Tuxi, who is also wait­ing for her forever home.

To­day is the day at Cen­tre Vil­lage Mall: ATB is host­ing a bar­be­cue fundraiser for us, with ve­gan op­tions (yeah!) sup­ported by Save On Foods, and LCCR vol­un­teers are in the mall it­self with our monthly Adop­tion and Craft Event. Stop by and visit us and have lunch and pick up some fan­tas­tic cat-re­lated items, such as Cat Grass and Kick­ers. Thank you to ev­ery­one who sup­ports our res­cue ef­forts and who do­nated to our monthly bot­tle drive last week­end. All of our fundrais­ing rev­enue goes to the direct care of LCCR res­cue cats. We are a 100 per cent vol­un­teer res­cue, CRA reg­is­tered char­ity and Al­berta So­ci­ety. En­joy the week­end and come and spend some time with us. Our sweet, lit­tle Ste­vie had surgery, at Green Acres An­i­mal Hospi­tal, this past week to have her eyes re­moved. She came to Pur­r­fect End­ings on July 3, at ap­prox­i­mately three weeks of age, after be­ing found at the dump. She was very sick, de­hy­drated and also blind. Since then she has been do­ing so well. It is amaz­ing to see how she can adapt so eas­ily to her sur­round­ings. Un­for­tu­nately, her eyes have been caus­ing her a great deal of pain and dis­com­fort. Ste­vie will be up for adop­tion once she has re­cov­ered from her surgery. Although Pur­r­fect End­ings is a small res­cue we take in many se­ri­ous med­i­cal cases. Over the past few months we have had three ma­jor ones. Our bill at Green Acres An­i­mal Hospi­tal is so huge and we are in des­per­ate need of do­na­tions. No amount is too small. Thank you so much to those in­di­vid­u­als who have do­nated. Please call Linda (403-381-9269) or Sam (403-382-0977) of Pur­r­fect End­ings Res­cue for more in­for­ma­tion. We are also on Face­book. Toulouse is an ac­tive, out­go­ing, mis­chievous young­ster who loves to play! He loves toys like the Cat’s Meow, tun­nels and laser lights. Toulouse likes to play with his room­mates, too, but is a typ­i­cal boy and some­times plays a lit­tle rough. He also likes people, when he’s not rac­ing around! He’s about nine months old and came to the Hu­mane So­ci­ety early this year. He’s look­ing for his forever home, and for a fam­ily look­ing for a bun­dle of orange en­ergy! If you are in­ter­ested in meet­ing Toulouse, you can visit him at the Leth­bridge Hu­mane So­ci­ety (2920 16 Ave. N. or call 403-320-8991). To view other Haven pets, go to

Look at Harold and Buddy, grey and white boys not quite five months old. To the eye, they could be hard to tell apart and, in­deed, they have their sim­i­lar­i­ties. They both play hard, with en­ergy to spare — they are kit­tens, after all — but they are both big into cud­dle­time, too. But no broth­ers are iden­ti­cal, no mat­ter how they look. Harold is the more out­go­ing; he wants to be in the ac­tion, wher­ever it may be. At night, he’ll want to sleep on the bed with you. Harold would do fine as an only-cat. Buddy is a fol­lower; he needs a leader and looks to his brother to show him what’s what. Harold learns quickly on his own; he knows what ‘no’ means, and re­spects it; Buddy will watch Harold for in­struc­tion. Two sib­lings, dif­fer­ent and sim­i­lar, both ready for a home. Will it be a home to­gether? Will it be your home? To meet them, call PAW at 403-328-6700 or send an on­line in­quiry at

www.paw­so­ci­ety.com. Find out how marvelous these broth­ers are. The PAW So­ci­ety's bi-an­nual Din­ner & Silent Auc­tion is on Sept. 29. De­tails on the web­site. We’d love to have you with us! Daisy is a very large mixed breed dog around eight months old. She is not for the faint at heart as this girl is ram­bunc­tious and has en­ergy to spare — which can feel over­whelm­ing for some just due to her size. She’s su­per friendly and re­spect­ful of new people, dogs, etc. She has a hi­lar­i­ous per­son­al­ity and will keep you laugh­ing with her antics. She walks pretty well on leash (once she’s tired, any­way!) and loves to play. She’ll fetch and play tug and would make a great fam­ily pet (due to her over­whelm­ing size and her ten­dency to act like a bull in a china shop, we feel re­ally young kids might not be ap­pro­pri­ate). Call 403-359-3139 or visit www.windyc­i­tyres­cue.com for more in­for­ma­tion.
