Card Party: their es­tate-plan­ning process, a shel­ter or res­cue will most likely be con­tacted for as­sis­tance.

Res­cue dogs are not dam­aged. Most have been dearly loved and have been part of a sup­port­ive fam­ily. These dogs are so­cial, well trained and they can bond with a new fam­ily.

There are dogs who ar­rive in res­cue through very dif­fi­cult stan­dards. There are dogs who may have been seized by the po­lice or SPCA of­fi­cials while they in­ves­ti­gate an­i­mal cru­elty or neg­li­gence sit­u­a­tions. If a dog has had a chal­leng­ing jour­ney, a res­cue will en­sure you are fully in­formed of the pet’s past. The res­cue or shel­ter will also be very ed­u­cated re­gard­ing the dog’s per­son­al­ity be­cause the dog would have been un­der their care while be­ing fos­tered.

Con­sider adopt­ing a dog and giv­ing that dog a sec­ond chance, or even a first chance, to be a well-loved fam­ily mem­ber. Ev­ery­one de­serves a sec­ond chance.

Please be kind to an­i­mals. Tracy Jessiman is a pet por­trait artist who lives in Hal­i­fax with her hus­band and their three pets.
