Ozzy

Ozzy has been a great foster, and would make an amazing companion. She is beautiful all around! She has a very friendly personality, and loves human company. She warms up to people quickly. She loves to cuddle, and will lay on your lap! She loves to snuggle her head closer. She loves to be pet, but be careful not to touch certain areas she doesn’t like to be touched (she may attempt to scratch, but no worries – she’s declawed).

Ozzy is 11 years old, but still very active and outgoing. To Ozzy, age is just a number! Don’t let the photo fool you, she is a long haired cat that was recently shaved due to matts she had when she came to us.  Her owner passed away and her adult children were going to euthanize her as she was having an issue with the litter box in their home but turns out it was due to being overweight and matted and possibly stressed.  She was surrendered to our vet clinic and we were able to save her. Her bloodwork was all clear and since being in her foster home she has had no issues. She is on a good diet, her matts are gone and she is a happy girl.  She hopes to find her forever home soon! She would like to be the only cat in an adult home. If you have some room in your heart and some love to give, Ozzy is your girl!

Piper

This is Piper. She is about 12 weeks old (as of July 6, 2021). Piper was found with her 2 siblings born to a feral mom and some kind people rescued the trio and called the rescue. The kittens were socialized and have seen a vet. Piper is friendly and playful. She is not a bit shy and greets everyone with lots of purring. She has beautiful black fur with a gray undercoat that shows off her tabby markings. She would do well in a home with other animals or kids and would like another playful kitty in the home or to be adopted with one of her brothers – Luna and Poppy.

Theo & Frankie

These three siblings were rescued by a kind lady who has been helping the cats at a rural property. Unfortunately, their mother was killed by a dog so they came into rescue at the age of about 4 weeks. They were dehydrated and cold so they needed medical attention as soon as they were found.  All three have been fighting eye infections but these seem to be clearing up.
Thankfully they have made a full recovery and are now happy and thriving. They are now almost 8 weeks old.

Frankie (black and white female) is the leader of the bunch. She is curious and bold and not really afraid of anything. She is also the loudest when she needs attention. She was a little rough in her play when she first arrived but now plays nicely and loves to take on the bigger fosters in the home. We would like for her to be adopted with one of her siblings if possible or to a home that has a young cat she can model and play with.

Theo (white/tabby male) Theo gets along with everyone.  He has some bold moments and plays well with everyone whether his siblings or the big cats in the home.  He is not really a fan of being held by the humans but will snuggle up with the other animals. Just like Frankie and Cheeka we would like Theo to be adopted with one of his siblings or go to a home that has a young cat.

All three of these guys have been around a large dog and are fine if the dog is respectful.

Theo, and Frankie are available for adoption through Grand River All Breed Rescue.  The adoption donation is $200 per cat. All of our cats are spayed or neutered, microchipped, and vaccinated as part of their adoption. If you’d like to adopt, please fill out an application.

Jack & Star

They welcome petting and are generally calm and well behaved. They are curious about visitors. They respond to their names. Jack can be picked up, but doesn’t overtly enjoy that. Star resists being picked up. They have plenty of toys, but rarely engage with them. Star seems the dominant sibling, though Jack was much quicker to be friendly. They both will come and sit on their foster’s legs occasionally. They don’t seek a lot of attention and are both very quiet. Jack seems more interested in watching wildlife through the window. Star is keen on chasing any fly that gets into the house.

Jack and Star are available for adoption through Grand River All Breed Rescue.  The adoption donation is $200 per cat. All of our cats are spayed or neutered, microchipped, and vaccinated as part of their adoption. If you’d like to adopt, please fill out an application.

Talie

Name: Talie
Sex: Male
Breed: Jindo
Age: Approx. 5 years
Location: Wellington Region (Outside of Guelph, ON)
Weight: Approx. 40 lbs
Vaccinations: UTD + Microchipped + Neutered
Tested with: Dogs & Children
Home requirements: Children 7+, Dogs 35 lbs +, fenced backyard, Adopter with experience / willing to work with trainer.


Talie is a very special boy. He was rescued from extreme conditions and is having trouble adjusting to being a happy dog. In the three years with his foster, he has come a long way. However, he still needs a lot of patience and experience to bring him into the dog he could be. Talie will always be a shy boy, so if you are looking for a dog that will turn into an outgoing, cuddly family pet then Talie is not the one for you. He is extremely nervous and will take a lot of time, patience and work to adjust to a new home and grow from that point.

He is good with other dogs but can please rough and needs to work on his manners. At this point, he would be better suited to a house with other medium to large dogs. He has not been cat tested. The foster family that Talie has been living with has a child that was only 10 when they took him in and he has interacted with young children. He is very calm with them. However, it is best for him to be in a home with children 7+.
 
Talie loves to play outside. Especially with other dogs, that is where you see his personality shine, but he will need work on his basic skills: come, sit, stay and walking on a leash all need to be taught. He is a very playful boy when outside and loves to chase a ball. Inside, he is a very easy keeper. He does not have food aggression and spend most of his time inside the crate.

Talie is available for adoption together through Grand River All Breed rescue. The adoption donation is $400. All of our dogs are spayed or neutered, microchipped, and vaccinated as part of their adoption. If you’d like to adopt, please fill out an application.

Max

Update: Max has recently been diagnosed with intestinal cancer and so will be keeping him in our program for now to see how he responds to medication. Any donations towards his care would be appreciated. 

Update: Max has responded well to his medication and is now eating/drinking and back to himself. If someone is willing to give him a forever home knowing that he does have cancer and not sure how much time he has we would love for him to find a forever home that can give him a good quality of life to the end.

Max – a beautiful 6-year-old neutered, male cat with gorgeous blue eyes and a black heart on his nose. His colourings are tan, white and black. Max’s original owner passed away so he was taken in by a close neighbour who took wonderful care of him. However, Max was not a fan of her original cat and she was not able to keep him at her house.

He came into a foster home with Grand River All Breed 6 weeks ago and is truly a joy. Max stays close by to his humans most of the time and can be very chatty. He must be placed in a home where he is the only pet as we know he is not friendly at all with other cats, although he is very loving with his human family. We also recommend that his forever home have lots of patience at the beginning as it takes him several days to adjust to new surroundings. He loves to be scratched on his head and under his chin and will sit with his humans on his terms.

Max eats dry and wet food and drinks water from a large bowl as he doesn’t like when his whiskers touch the sides of his dishes and he uses his litter box. He has toys that he plays with once he gets comfortable and will make a wonderful pet for a loving family. We recommend an adult home or home without young kids as he is shy at first and has never lived with children.

Max is available for adoption through Grand River All Breed Rescue.  The adoption donation is $200 per cat. All of our cats are spayed or neutered, microchipped, and vaccinated as part of their adoption. If you’d like to adopt, please fill out an application. You can also reach us by email at GrandRiverRescue@hotmail.com.

Bella

Bella is a ~ 9 year old female spayed DSH. While a bit shy at first, Bella is quick to warm up to people and absolutely loves cuddles + attention.

Bella is seeking a quiet home. She will likely do best in a home without young kids. Bella is currently living in a foster home with dogs and seems to tolerate them well. She does not seem to like the presence of other cats.

Bella is a diabetic, which means she requires twice daily insulin injections and needs to be fed a special veterinary prescribed diet.

Bella is available for adoption through Grand River All Breed Rescue.  The adoption donation is $200 per cat. All of our cats are spayed or neutered, microchipped, and vaccinated as part of their adoption. If you’d like to adopt, please fill out an application. You can also reach us by email at GrandRiverRescue@hotmail.com.

Virginia

Virginia is adjusting to life in a home.  She is shy and nervous but is very food motivated.  The vet estimates that she is approximately 1-3 years of age.  Virginia had a litter of kittens that have been adopted and is now looking for her forever home.  Virginia enjoys both wet and dry food and loves her treats!  She is litter box trained and keeps herself well groomed and clean.  Virginia will take a couple of weeks to become settled in her new environment and will require an owner with patience to allow her to become comfortable and secure before reaching out to her.  Because of this, we are recommending a quiet home with no young children or other animals.  Virginia is up to date on all of her shots and has recently been spayed.

Virginia is available for adoption through Grand River All Breed Rescue.  The adoption donation is $200 per cat. All of our cats are spayed or neutered, microchipped, and vaccinated as part of their adoption. If you’d like to adopt, please fill out an application.

Rupert and Ramsey [Bonded Rabbits]

Ramsey (grey face) and Rupert (brown face) are a bonded pair of year old bunnies. They play together and sleep together. Both bunnies love their fresh veggies, mint and Brussels sprouts seem to be their favourites, they also like banana as a treat. Ramsey is more outgoing and likes to be held, he will come right up to you for a treat! Rupert is more shy, but will allow you to hold him with no issue. They are working on their litter box habits, but the vet said training should be easier now that they are neutered. Each rabbit weighs about 3 lbs.

 

Ramsey and Rupert are available for adoption through Grand River All Breed rescue. Their adoption donation is $150. All of our rabbits are spayed or neutered and vaccinated as part of their adoption. If you’d like to adopt, please fill out an application. You can also reach us by email at GrandRiverRescue@hotmail.com.

Jagger

 

Jagger is a 2.5 year old border collie / husky cross. He is 60 lbs of short creamy white fur with a striking dappled red nose & ears. He has a truly goofy grin when he’s happy and his expressive toffee brown eyes make it hard to stay mad at him for any length of time. He is house trained and absolutely adores his crate. He often puts himself to bed in it if if his people are up past his bedtime.

Jagger is people pup, he loves meeting new people and will quickly flip over for a belly rub given any incentive. He loves moving from person to person for attention when among groups of people, and enjoys noisy, crowded environments as he sees this as an opportunity for endless petting. Jagger is a very social dog as he will follow his people around the house wanting to be included in anything going on.

Jagger loves playtime, his absolute favourite toy is his tug rope. He’ll amaze you at how fast plush toys can be taken apart. However, he is very gentle with his rubber toys. He tends to get bored, so rotating his toys is a good idea. Outside he plays with a large rubber ball but has the typical husky attitude after a few throws of “if you lose it again it’s not my problem “. Jagger has never truly played with a Frisbee, but given the space would astound you at how high he can jump. He is very smart and learns quickly. He’s food motivated and knows sit, down, wait, look at me, with me, turn, and of course high five.

Jagger leans more towards his husky side. He walks well on his gentle leader but still has a tendency to pull when distracted. He likes nothing better than to see new places, he occasionally gets car sick but this is solved by timing his meals accordingly. Jagger is fascinated by water but doesn’t want to be in it, he will avoid puddles at all costs and take you home if it starts to rain on a walk. He loves being around it and will bring you right to the water’s edge, just don’t try to make him go in.

Jagger is dog reactive, and will bark and lunge when he sees other dogs. This is behavior we believe is fear based as he will take any opportunity to run from the situation. When unable to escape he does have some leash aggression, interpreting any movement towards him as a threat. He has been making great strides towards correcting this, and rarely reacts to neighboring dogs. He would benefit greatly from a course specializing in reactive dogs. Due to his fear aggression he is currently kept on a long lead in a fenced yard for easy recall. Jagger also has food allergies which are avoided by his diet of Forza 10 kibble.

Jagger is an absolute sweetheart. He’s a cuddly fun boy that would do well in a dog savvy home with a well fenced yard with people willing to provide the training that the high energy and northern breeds need. Older children would be great.

Jagger is available for adoption together through Grand River All Breed rescue. The adoption donation is $400. All of our dogs are spayed or neutered, microchipped, and vaccinated as part of their adoption. If you’d like to adopt, please fill out an application.

Pickles

Coming to her foster home directly from the Humane Society, Pickles settled in very quickly. She is a beautiful dilute calico about 11 years old and front paw declawed. She meows when she wants you to make your lap available for her to sit on, but prefers not to be picked up. She is very clean and always uses her litter box. She likes to be brushed and enjoys looking out the patio door at the birds and squirrels. Pickles would love to be the only pet in the house and would do best in an adult home. She has stage 3 kidney disease and eats a special diet, takes a supplement, and needs a blood test once or twice a year to monitor her levels. If you would love a nice, calm cat as a companion, Pickles is your girl!

 

Pickles’ foster reports that she has a very cute habit: In the morning while waiting to be fed, she is SO excited that her tail stands straight up and vibrates while she does a little dance with her hind legs.

Fuzzy

Fuzzy has been with us a very long time. She was a feral cat that we rescued from a colony. She is 13 years old now. She has adjusted to indoor life well. She has come along very well in her foster home and loves being pet and will just purr and purr while sitting on the couch beside her foster mom. She doesn’t like to be picked up but will allow her foster mom to pet her on her own terms. Fuzzy gets along with cats and dogs. She would prefer a home with another cat so we will be only looking at applications that have other cats for her forever home.
