After visiting her friend in Barry's Bay with her husband, Anna, our dedicated Cat Volunteer/Trapper, decided to have dinner at a restaurant there. Before entering the restaurant, Anna spotted an orange cat underneath a car. He appeared to be worn out, starving and cold. Anna found out from the restaurant staff that this poor cat was a homeless one that had been hanging around the restaurant, begging for food the last 3 months. Anna knew that she just could not leave this poor soul behind. Anna got a cardboard box from the restaurant, put the cat inside and then in their car while they had dinner. Anna specially reserved half of the Schnitzel that she had and gave to the poor cat, and he ate it all! It was a 4 hour drive back to Mississauga, but the cat was sleeping all the way home. He was an unneutered male and was not chipped either. He also had a very bad case of ear mites that took over 3 weeks to treat. He was named SCHNITZEL as we found out that's the food that he really likes! Not only is SCHNITZEL gorgeous, he also has a great personality. When other cats or kittens would growl or hiss at him he would just ignore them. SCHNITZEL is now adopted to a loving home. He's very loved and spoiled. He takes turns to sleep with his humans every night!
Cayman Island Dogs
These are just some of the dogs that we rescued from the Cayman Islands Humane Society. The shelter is always overcrowded.
Family of 4
This unbelievably cute family was saved from a residential area in Brampton. When PARS received reports about some strays hanging around the area, we took action as always.
Bella & her kittens Nikita + Timothy
Bella and Nikita & Timothy, her 2 juvenile kittens, were rescued from a vacant property. Timothy & Nikita (the cute pair in the pic) were gentle and they were adopted as a pair. Bella was seriously injured. She had multiple wounds on her front leg and wasn’t able to use it. Originally when checked out it was thought that she may need her leg amputated. However after being treated with antibiotics and with no fractures she made an amazing recovery. She will still have limited use of her leg as her tendons and muscles were damaged, but she could continue to regain strength in her leg.
Cora was rescued and adopted out by PARS a few months ago. Although it was a great home, unfortunately the family situation was not suitable for her, and she was returned after 2 months. We have now found another home for Cora, a quiet adult home. "Cora is doing just fine. She has commandeered the middle of the couch as you can see. She is a very good natured dog. I think that her original owner must have trained her well, She can be hanging around us and then when we sit at the dining room table she goes and sits down. She comes to the bedroom door but doesn’t come in which is something we like. This weekend she met 2 of our young grandkids (5 and 7) and they got along just fine. She gets 3 45 minute walks a day. My wife walks her in the morning and afternoon and I walk her in the evening so she’s getting a lot of exercise and so are we. We already have gotten her to stop pulling when we walk, using a Cesar Millan method. The only issue she has is going ballistic when she sees another dog. We will be searching out a dog trainer that has other dogs so that she can learn to socialize. We have quite a few dogs in our area and we don’t like to grab her by the collar and wrestle with her. She needs to hang out with a pack of dogs but we can’t help her in that department. We’re confident we can get her past her only problem. She’s a great dog and we're lucky to have her." - Pasquale Feb 2021
Boseley is a young and very energetic boy whom we rescued from an over crowded shelter. He was adopted but was returned after a week as he was "too much to handle", although he's a friendly dog. We then placed Boseley with an experienced foster parent who spent time and work on training him in areas such as leashed walking and separation anxiety. He gradually improved and turned into a more well behaved dog! He was adopted out recently to an active family: "He’s doing well! We have renamed him the TERRORIST 🥰 kidding his knock name is boss boy. He is becoming so comfortable he is into everything but we are working on keeping him off the counter and down. He is a lovely boy and very busy. He’s going to be super happy here and loves everyone. Me especially! He even tried to get in the bath with me yesterday 😂 -Saara March 2021.
