Mozart is loving his new home

Hello PS shelter. Just wanted to check in to say thank you! Mozart came into our family on October 3rd through a rescue organization you work with, the SARA Society. Because he's deaf, I was immediately drawn to him knowing he was a fit for our family as special needs is a fixture in our home. Truth be told, Mozart's lack of hearing is hardly a handicap and most days we don't even think about it because "Motzie" gets by like any other dog...his nose is king and his vision propels him! He's a lunatic! Like a firecracker that's always lit! And we love it. Boundless, his kind of energy just makes us envious and it's wonderful. Did I mention he likes to eat?? It just might be his only goal in life!

We are Robert, Yolanta, Gwendolyn & Liya Samus. Oh and George, Mozart's 19 year old brother, a minpin. We live in suburban Vancouver, British Columbia Canada.…

Medical Update On Luke, Our Senior Poodle.

We have an update on Luke our senior, blind poodle mix.  Luke is cleared to have cataract surgery on one eye, but the other eye is too damaged.  The good news is, Luke will have restored vision in one eye after the surgery.

Since his arrival Luke has been hanging out with our staff and volunteers, and is the sweetest little guy who walks great on leash and LOVES to sniff out the window on car rides!

Thank you for your ongoing support, we'll keep you posted on his journey.

Donate towards Luke's Love Fund or apply to adopt him on our website
